A passion for skincare can develop over time or happen instantaneously. Maybe you grew up with acne problems and found a product that cleared your skin overnight. Or maybe you found a skin care regimen that has kept your skin supple and smooth while delaying the signs of aging. Whatever your reasons for loving skin care, you could turn this passion into a career!
At American Institute of Beauty our skin care program covers the basics of skin care like facials, skin analysis, and hair removal, as well as the use of machines such as microdermabrasion and LED light therapy.
Here are a few reasons why a career as a skin care specialist (esthetician) could be a rewarding and exciting option for anyone passionate about skincare.
Paying It Forward
Your love of skincare may have come from the first-hand experience of learning how to keep your skin blemish-free. Attending an esthetician training program at a skin care school and becoming certified can prepare you for a career that helps others feel beautiful. There’s nothing more emotionally rewarding than giving a confidence boost to clients. Many people suffer for years with skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. Achieving clear skin can help an individual feel self-assured and comfortable in their own body. Consider all the good you could do in your line of work!
Feeling a Sense of Belonging
Many people float from career to career without ever feeling any type of professional satisfaction. If you love beauty and you break into the skin care field, you’ll no longer struggle with the sense of something critical missing from your life. Challenges within your skin care career can provide an opportunity to learn more about new treatments and products that will help your clients. Pursuing your education in skin care can prepare you for a future career that inspires and energizes you.
When you become a certified esthetician, you won’t be restricted to certain career options. You could work in a variety of environments including salons, medical spas, makeup artistry agencies, waxing bars, resort hotels, skin care manufacturers, skin product line esthetics representative, and possibly even in a dermatologist or plastic surgeon’s office. The job market for skin care specialists is only expected to grow in the future. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for skin care specialists have the potential to increase by 17 percent between 2019 and 2029, which is much faster than a majority of occupations.
