Proper Skin Care for a New Generation

Increased life expectancy is pushing adults to eat healthier and take better care of themselves. As advances in medical treatments and quality of life continue to progress, many are beginning to embrace the natural process of maturation.

In addition to the movement towards natural and organic products, anti-aging treatments have expanded from wrinkle treatments to include dry skin, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles.

As maturing adults choose to embrace a youthful spirit and active lifestyle, skin care becomes an increasingly important aspect of personal health. Over 4 million types of skin cancer are diagnosed each year, and most of them could have been appropriately treated with early intervention. Diet, exercise, menopause, health, family history, tanning beds, and tobacco use are all factors that can affect the condition of the skin or contribute to skin cancer.

Current trends see many taking a holistic approach and looking for lifestyle habits that will facilitate a graceful aging process. Practicing yoga to de-stress, staying hydrated with coconut water, avoiding sugar (which causes inflammation) and of course keeping prolonged sun exposure to a minimum, are all simple but effective ways to keep skin happy, healthy and glowing. 

If you enjoy skin care education, treatments, and advice, it’s never been a better time to think about getting your esthetician license from our TONI&GUY Newtown Academy!

What does an esthetician do?

Most esthetician programs revolve around skincare maintenance. Skin is the most immediate outward sign of fitness and vitality and must be properly looked after. As people seek out more ways to maintain a healthy appearance, estheticians are needed to help educate clients on the best ways to combat the effects of sun exposure and aging. 

Professional estheticians can work in a variety of environments including skincare clinics, medical spas, beauty lounges, dermatology offices, plastic surgery practices, and even high-end resorts.

Estheticians are trained to recognize skin problems, offer advice and provide treatments. Depending on the environment, a typical day could consist of giving facials, microdermabrasion treatments, body wraps or aromatherapy. While estheticians cannot perform medical procedures, they can work alongside doctors to assist with procedures or perform post-operative skin care consultations.

Students who sign up for the esthetician program at our TONI&GUY Newtown Academy will have the benefit of learning and training in a beautiful spa environment that fosters real-world experience and the opportunity to build a loyal client base before graduation.
