Should I Become an Esthetician?

If you’re an artist who enjoys helping people look and feel more beautiful, a career as an esthetician—or skin care therapist—is an exciting choice with lots of professional opportunities. From working in health and beauty spas to salons to dermatological offices and more, you’ll be able to provide personalized treatment options to your clients which include skin evaluations; advice on proper makeup application; peels, masks, and scrubs; and massage—just to name a few! After all, the skin is the body’s largest and fastest-growing organ. That’s why people need experts to teach them proper care and maintenance for a beautiful and healthy appearance.
