One of the greatest aspects of the esthetics industry is the constant change and the evolution that continues with new styles, trends, treatments, and products.
With Covid-19 restrictions in the rear-view mirror (hopefully), the industry is poised to come together again with the return of tradeshows, more spa education classes and opportunities to continue learning.
Here's a short list of a few we recommend:
The Face & Body Skincare Show, San Jose, California (August 21-22, 2022) - returns after more than 2 years.

The perfect podcast for skincare professionals who want to learn more about how to make it in the industry, hear from industry leaders, hear one-on-one interviews from skincare brand creators and so much more. With a new featured guest every episode, this podcast has it all for skincare pros who want to go further than skin deep! New episodes monthly on Thursday.
Simran Sethi, MD, MBA, the CEO, founder and medical director of RenewMD Beauty & Wellness medical spas, has launched an educational podcast—The Skin Report with Dr. Simran Sethi—that aims to educate individuals interested in skin care and overall health.
If you know anything about skincare, you know that products are often formulated to address specific concerns, with labels advertising treatment descriptions like “for dry skin,” “for acne-prone skin,” and “for mature skin.” But why is it that the beauty industry rarely addresses the individual skin care needs of women of color? As it turns out, ethnicity plays a significant role in determining the best skin care treatments for different people.
The Skin Report is a new podcast aimed to shed light on how skin care practices can improve skin health for people of every ethnicity. In this first episode, host Dr. Simran Sethi discusses the skincare industry, its history and practices, and how the Skin Report podcast aims to educate listeners and improve skincare inclusivity for women of color.
New episodes will release every Wednesday; available on all major podcast platforms, including Apple, Spotify, Google, Amazon Music, Podcast Index, Player FM, Deezer Stitcher, Radio Republic, TuneIn, and Pocket Casts, Gaana and JioSaavn.
