Southeastern Esthetics Institute Hosts Their Centennial Graduation

Southeastern Esthetics Institute is honored to have graduated its 100th class on October 22, 2018. They hosted this special celebration at City Art in Columbia, South Carolina. In attendance were family, friends, fellow students, and instructors. Paula Wessinger, an instructor over the elite campus, shared her experience in teaching these individuals throughout their 20 weeks. “There were many tears and lots of hugs shared. It was a meaningful event for all,” said Wessinger.

All graduations are one of a kind and are catered toward each graduating class and student. Not one graduation is the same. Each individual is different and Southeastern Esthetics Institute understands that and speaks to each student who is moving out of the program and into the real world.

Student body president, Jocelyn Perez, said, “I look forward to growing in our careers, just as we started, together. The knowledge and friendship we have coveted in this program has made us comfortable in entering into the field of aesthetics and knowing we will be successful.”

Southeastern Esthetics Institute holds a graduating licensure course approximately every five weeks, each time placing highly trained aestheticians into the heavily growing industry. The 600-hour aesthetics licensure course is the only accredited aesthetics course in the state of South Carolina. The program teaches theory, practical, and real-life aesthetics experience to create the most well-rounded individuals possible. They are pressed to be the best they can be and to participate in community service, working independently and in groups.

“We are incredibly proud of these soon-to-be aestheticians and are excited to see them grow and make this industry better, bringing new ideas and excellent knowledge into the field,” said Courtney Sykes, owner of Southeastern Esthetics Institute. seestheticsinstitute.com

LivNordic and Sauna From Finland Collaborate to Create the True Sauna Experience

LivNordic, the spa brand founded by Raison d’Etre to encourage the Nordic art of wellness, announced the launch of a new collaboration with Sauna From Finland, to help spas and consumers discover the importance of authentic sauna practice. Together, Sauna From Finland and LivNordic will share their knowledge about the many benefits of the Finnish sauna and offer spa clients all over the world an authentic Finnish sauna experience. Bringing together LivNordic’s wealth of global spa industry knowledge with Sauna From Finland’s expertise on the truly Finnish sauna experience, this collaboration aims to encourage a higher standard of sauna in the global industry and raise awareness of the benefits of the practice. A traditional Finnish sauna is a perfect place to rest, relax, and focus on health and well-being. Taking a sauna reduces stress and improves quality of sleep. In the sauna, the mind and body are cleansed and find harmony. Raison d’Etre has been shaping the world’s finest spas for over 20 years, leading wellness businesses into world-class status and developing Scandinavian-inspired spas with LivNordic. By collaborating with Sauna From Finland, the global spa consultancy hopes to encourage a more traditional Finnish experience that will be taken on board by new and well-established spas. Sauna From Finland’s website shares the rating of saunas and services, with the Authentic Finnish Sauna Experience Quality Certificate marking the highest standard of sauna. The company also assists spas and businesses to design and implement the highest-quality sauna experience.

GlobalSkin Launches International Movement for Eczema Sufferers on First Ever Awareness Day

Today, the global eczema community unites to observe the first-ever Atopic Eczema Day to raise awareness and understanding of eczema and atopic dermatitis. Atopic Eczema Day brings together those affected by eczema or atopic dermatitis to share experiences and future aspirations and drive actions that improve lives all over the world.
To deliver that action, the International Alliance of Dermatology Patient Organizations (IADPO), also known as GlobalSkin, is unveiling AltogetherEczema, a new movement to elevate the urgent and unmet needs of the global eczema and atopic dermatitis community. Altogethereczema.org will serve as the central hub for people affected by eczema or atopic dermatitis, as well as patient leaders – providing resources, gathering insights, and seeking to empower collective advocacy.
“The inaugural World Atopic Eczema Day is a long-awaited chance to honor and empower those affected by eczema or atopic dermatitis and, finally, puts their needs in the spotlight,” said Christine Janus, CEO of GlobalSkin. “This community faces a huge range of challenges, whether physical or emotional, every single day. We hope by launching AltogetherEczema, we can kickstart a conversation within the community about what matters most. A clearer understanding of issues and priorities for those living with the condition will ensure that, together, we can work towards meaningful and relevant change.”
Globally, eczema affects up to 20 percent of children and 10 percent of adults. Atopic dermatitis is the most common – and chronic – form of eczema, which, typically, causes patches of dry, itchy skin that may worsen and can erupt into a rash when scratched. But, people also, often, experience a significant, negative impact on their emotional wellbeing – from an inability to sleep to associated feelings of social exclusion and depression or anxiety. It is this hidden, multidimensional burden that needs urgent attention.
AltogetherEczema urges the eczema and atopic dermatitis community to share their story and experiences of life with the condition, as well as their aspirations for the future.  By doing so, the key issues faced globally can be investigated, utilizing shared knowledge and insight to inspire advocacy and  a campaign for change.

Alicia Grande CEO of Grande Cosmetics

After 25 years in the anti-aging, skin care and beauty industries interviewing doctors and scientists about new innovative products, I truly believed I had seen it all! As I got older and became a wife and mother, my interest in anti-aging products grew more personal. I looked for products that would restore or slow down my own aging process. In 2009, I discovered the secret to naturally beautiful eyelashes, an eyelash-enhancing conditioner I called GrandeLASH-MD. I finally found a powerful product that offered me such outstanding results it inspired me to create Grande Cosmetics, my own results-driven line of innovative cosmetics, serums, and conditioners. Armed with the secret to restoring and maintaining my natural eyelashes, hair, lips, and eyebrows, I wanted to share it with as many women as possible!

Spas depend on their vendors for a wide variety of products, services, and support functions

Spas depend on their vendors for a wide variety of products, services, and support functions. Managing these relationships is time consuming and businesses need to spend less time placing orders to have more time servicing clients. Many spa owners and spa directors find themselves working outside the spa to complete their weekly work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, 22 percent of employed persons did some or all of their work at home. Spa professionals perform a growing number of diverse tasks in today’s technology-driven economy and should select wholesale partners capable of anticipating these evolving needs. ExPürtise® is now offering an online wholesale ordering platform designed to streamline access to professional resources and simplify the ordering process.
