How comfortable would you feel taking prescription medication without having spoken to your doctor?
Most of us aren’t comfortable with putting things into our body without consulting an expert, but we do it to our skin all the time.
Our skin is our largest organ and although we may think it’s low maintenance, there are some very important occasions on your journey to clear where the best solution starts with talking to an esthetician. Here are a few of them:
- You’re starting (again) on your journey to clear. If you’re dealing with specific issues like acne and dark spots, this probably isn’t your first attempt to get clear. To get the results you want, you’ll have to do things a little differently starting with speaking with an esthetician who can help you pinpoint and eliminate your triggers. Your challenges may be more severe than what anything over-the-counter can treat. Speaking to an esthetician can save you time, effort, and money.
- Your skincare routine isn’t working anymore. Sometimes your products start off working great but you stop noticing progress over time. There could be many reasons why this is happening: You could be using your products incorrectly (you can’t rush or skip the process!) or your skin could be at a new stage of healing and just needs different support now. Your esthetician can help you sort it out.
- Your skin is drying out. If you’re doing all the right things and you’re noticing dry, flaky skin, speak with your esthetician about your routine. This is a common thing on the journey to clear. You could be using too much product, or you may need to make some adjustments like sleeping with a humidifier in your room.
- You’re starting new medication, supplements, or a new diet. Everything we put into our bodies can impact your skin. Speaking to an esthetician can give you a heads up so you can prepare to treat anything that may be a side effect.
Think of your esthetician as your clear-skin coach. She knows things! Don’t underestimate how powerful it can be to have an acne expert holding your hand every step of your journey to clear. Keep yours close!
