A licensed aesthetician, Cara Dempsey is also the 2022 Face Reality Acne Expert of the Year and the owner of SKINCARA.
What is your educational background, and how do you continue your education in the industry?
I dropped out of traditional college to pursue my passion for aesthetics. Learning does not stop once you get your license – it is just the beginning. I love listening to podcasts, taking advantage of continuing education courses, and finding good mentors to keep me motivated to grow in this industry.
How long have you been practicing, and why did you choose this field?
I have been a licensed aesthetician for just over five years. I originally wanted to do makeup but quickly realized that it was not for me. I am so happy I found my niche treating acne instead!
Why is Face Reality Skincare your ultimate go-to, and how has it helped you become one of the best professionals in the industry?
Face Reality Skincare is my ultimate go-to brand because it truly is the industry leader when it comes to treating acne. Their protocols, continuing education, and results-driven products have helped me clear hundreds of clients and pushed me towards success.
Why did you choose the brand, and how did you find out about them?
I first heard about Face Reality through Instagram back in 2019. I remember seeing before and after photographs from other Face Reality Acne Experts, and I knew this was the line I wanted to work with because their results are unmatched.
How do you stay educated with Face Reality?
They offer continuing education, live video training, and have an Acne Expert success team that I take advantage of frequently. All these things allow me to be at the top of my game when it comes to treating acne.
What benefits do your clients see from using the retail of the brand?
Face Reality Skincare retail products assist in clearing their acne and help them maintain clear skin. My clients are obsessed with these products!
How do you promote yourself and Face Reality?
I take advantage of social media apps like Instagram and TikTok to share acne-specific content with people all over the globe. Before and after photographs have also been a game changer because they allow people to see what I can do with Face Reality Skincare.
Besides working with the brand, what else has helped you become one of the best?
Being truly passionate about what I do each day makes the job easy. I am so passionate about acne and educating clients on how they can achieve clear skin. I have always wanted to be a student; I want to learn and keep educating myself as much as possible.
How do you give back to the industry or community?
I am so grateful to be a Face Reality Ambassador. That platform has allowed me to educate other Acne Experts and skin care professionals to help them grow in this industry. There have been so many people who have helped me along my journey, so it is important for me to do the same with others.
