How To Become An Esthetician in Florida [Updated 2019]
Good skincare habits are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Remembering to wash and moisturize your face is only the beginning of it. Going into a salon for regular facials and spa treatments is vital for healthy skin as well!
Have you ever received a facial and wondered about the esthetician giving you the treatment and their career? How would your world look if you were an esthetician? We want to give you an idea of what it’s like and how you can learn more about a future in skincare!
A Promising Future
If you’ve ever thought about going into the skincare industry there is good news! According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the future of skincare specialists have a job outlook growth of 11% from 2018-2028. This is much faster than the average growth rate of most other occupations. We’re excited to share with you more of what it takes to become an esthetician in the state of Florida at Artistic Nails and Beauty Academy and what the skincare industry is all about.
What Do Estheticians Do?
The esthetician field provides many treatments designed to improve skin. The skincare industry has grown rapidly in the past few years as more and more people are finding it important to help others improve the appearance of their skin.
The skincare industry is booming. People are investing more into skincare now because they are doing intensive skincare routines at home along with getting more treatments at spas. These opportunities give skincare specialists the ability to give advice on at-home routines and provide skin services to people who want healthy, beautiful skin.
At Artistic Nails and Beauty Academy we teach the following in our skincare courses:
- The Skin and Its Functions
- Chemistry for the Facial Student
- Facial Massage
- Mask Therapy
- Facial Treatments With and Without Machines
- Waxing, Tweezing, and Hair Removal
- Makeup Techniques
The best part about being a skincare specialist is providing skincare regimes to your clients and helping them understand how to properly care for their skin! Some could even say estheticians help build confidence and self-worth. According to a recent survey 75% of women have a beauty/self-care routine to look good for themselves. And 55% have a routine to feel comfortable in their own skin. You could help be a part of someone’s self-care routine!
