We believe there are qualities that estheticians possess that will almost guarantee they'll be successful (and happy!) in their profession. This week we’d like to share 7 signs that may mean you're a natural esthetician (or are one already!)
1. YOUR DESIRE TO HELP OTHERS COMES NATURALLY.
Estheticians have an innate desire to help others. Whether its giving a great facial or diagnosing a skin concern and providing recommendations that help ease a client's worry or anxiety about just what to do, or helping someone ease away the day's stress with a relaxing hand and arm massage - you're a rock star when it comes to helping others!
2. YOU UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DETAILS.
From keeping good records and charting your client's skin homecare and treatments, remembering their likes and dislikes, product knowledge, providing a clean & sterilized workspace, and just being conscientious about everything you do - you're a natural esthetician!
3. YOU’RE A (HOLISTIC) SCIENCE NERD.
If knowing and understanding what makes our bodies tick is one of your passions, or learning why skincare ingredients do what they do and how, you may be a future esthetician! There’s no end to the ways you can combine different sciences and holistic healing therapies (a Euro specialty!). For example: cosmetic chemistry, anatomy and biology, aromatherapy, psychodermatology (addressing the interaction of the mind and skin), Ayurveda and Chinese healing modalities, and new equipment technology .
4. YOU LOVE TO BE HANDS-ON.
You don't want to just read about or watch it - you want to get in there and do it! That's a natura esthetician trait. You try out that DIY mask you read about online, you research the ingredients in your skincare products, and you don't take anything for granted - you get involved!
5. YOU’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT SKINCARE.
You're the kind of person who willingly watches YouTube channels where pimples are getting extracted and cysts are lanced - and you're not a bit squeamish! You're the one reminding your friends while on enjoying a sunny beach day to reapply their sunscreen and handing them their hat and jacket to cover up. You research skincare products to help your friend deal with a persistent skin concern. You're passionate and committed and those are the qualities of a natural esthetician! Estheticians derive pride and satisfaction from knowing they are changing lives - one face at a time! Estheticians are lifelong beauty & wellness aficionados, because they understand that beauty starts at skin deep and then goes way beyond!
6. YOU'RE NOT AFRAID TO WORK, GROW AND SUCCEED.
Whether you work for yourself or someone else, you know what it takes to grow and succeed and you're not afraid to dig in and make it happen. Flexibility and freedom are yours too, which is another reason why if that is important to you, you're a natural for esthetics.
7. YOU’RE A ONE OF A KIND BOSS.
If you prefer to be the captain of your own ship, or you like the idea of running things instead of things running you, esthetics may be the perfect career choice. You are unique and your expertise is like no-one else. The gift you bring to your clients can only be delivered by you - and there are people out there who need you!
Estheticians are truly one of a kind and there is opportunity for everyone to bring their personal vision to life.
