An esthetician is someone who is knowledgeable about and specializing in the beautification of the skin. There are many benefits to seeing an esthetician regularly. This includes helping clear and hydrate the skin, addressing problematic skin needs, and keeping your skin properly cleaned. There are a few simple tips on how to make the benefits of visiting your esthetician last longer.
“Your face is exposed the most and is the first thing a person looks at when they meet you,” says Licensed Esthetician Tashima Sanders at Seven Stones Healing Massage and Spa in Fort Worth, Texas. Having a spa facial exfoliates and hydrates your skin. Using sunscreen everyday is the simplest form of protecting your skin from damage. A daily moisturizer will help keep your skin hydrated and can extend the life of a spa facial.
Estheticians can also perform natural eyelash extensions. This is a natural alternative and longer lasting than mascara. “Do not pull out your eyelash extensions!” says Sanders, “This can damage and irritate your eyes.” After having eyelash extensions one should wait 24-48 hours for the eyelash glue to properly dry. Avoid swimming during this period as chlorine and other pool chemicals can weaken the eyelash glue and cause eyelash extensions to fall out.
Finally and most commonly, estheticians perform waxing to rid the body of unwanted hair. “Waxing is a form of exfoliation. Avoid having exfoliation treatments directly after waxing,” says Sanders. Double exfoliation treatments can lead to further irritation to the skin.
Follow these simple steps can help keep skin looking refreshed longer and extend visits to an esthetician.
