5 Great Reasons to Get Skin Care Training

EstheticianBecoming a fully trained beauty professional can bring all kinds of rewards. So, whether you go after a certificate, diploma, or degree, the potential benefits of being a credentialed skin care specialist are worth keeping in mind. Here are five good reasons to consider college-level training in this field:

1. Estheticians are in demand.

As an esthetician, your services could be in big demand. Employment of skin care specialists is expected to grow substantially—40 percent between 2012 and 2022, which is way above the national average for all occupations.* Simply put, the future looks very bright for those with the right qualifications.

2. You can become your own boss.

Many estheticians run their own businesses. So you may get the opportunity to set your own personalized hours of operation and work when it's convenient for you. Plus, some people in this field run mini spas or salons right from the comfort of their own homes.

3. The pay can be very good.

Skin care professionals are often paid well. So, in the right situation, it's possible to make a comfortable living even if you only choose to work part-time hours. In 2013, the average hourly wage of a skin care specialist in the U.S. was $15.86. And some estheticians made more than $56,900 a year.**

4. You love everything to do with beauty.

Skin Care ProfessionalYou may already consider yourself a beauty expert, so why not make it official? It can allow you to prosper from doing what you truly love. Think about it: As an esthetician, you'll get to assess the skin conditions of clients, discuss treatment options, and provide interesting and helpful services that, depending on your qualifications, can range from wax treatments to chemical peels to laser treatments and more.

Plus, if you choose to take a program at a cosmetology school, you can learn about skin care, plus a wide variety of other topics related to the beauty industry.

5. People will appreciate your skills.

When you make people look and feel amazing, they often reward you with genuine gratitude and respect. Can you picture being able to wake up each day knowing that you get to transform the looks and lives of appreciative men and women as a highly qualified esthetician?
