About Your Skin

Skin is more sensitive and requires more care than most people realize. When summer turns to fall, your skin can become dry and dehydrated. When winter turns to spring, your skin can become too moist and greasy. By going to an esthetician, you can get a treatment that is tailored to help your skin stay smooth, healthy, and radiant no matter the season.

Becoming An Esthetician

There’s a lot to learn about skin and products to become an esthetician. To be an official esthetician you have to go to school to receive training. During your time in school you will get 700 hours of practice. This is to prepare you and give you the experience you need to be a great esthetician.
