How would you like to go to work every day and help others look and feel great? How would you like to interact with different types of people from different backgrounds and helping them to rejuvenate not only their skin but their whole attitude?

A Skin Care Specialist career involves beautifying the skin in a variety of ways, including analyzing the skin, performing facials, doing microdermabrasion treatments, waxing facial and body hair, extractions and exfoliations and recommending skin care regiments to clientele. The esthetics field also often involves luxury spa elements for the rest of the body, including body wraps and polishes, aromatherapy, foot reflexology, eyebrow shaping and eyelash extensions.
