A PROMISING FUTURE
Cosmetic products included ingredients such as special soils,
wax, honey and oil, formulated into masks and makeup.
While skin care waned in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance in Europe
brought back a renewed interest in both the skin and cosmetics.
With the turn of the 20th century and up until the 1960’s, skincare often involved
the use of heavy cosmetics to camouflage imperfections and blemishes.
Today, the emphasis for skin care has shifted from “coverup,”
to a more natural look, which is only truly attractive with healthy, clean skin.
This has expanded the desire for skin care treatments and the future for estheticians.
According to CNN.com, “skin care specialist” is ranked number 4 out of the
10 top jobs in the service occupation segment, and is expected to experience
continued strong growth and demand in the coming decade.
As reported in Skin Inc. magazine issued May 2008,
“Good education is vital to the training of skilled technicians
who are expected to meet the needs of a growing population.”
