Step 1: See a Professional


It’s easy to think you know how to take care of your skin, the media bombards women with “product knowledge.”  Healthcare is never cut in dry (fact for all you medline readers).  Without education and experience in a subject, we have no business self-diagnosing and dictating a plan of action.  It’s finding the right man for the right job.

Like in most aspects of healthcare, preventative care is not usually the route we choose.  Ever notice how European women have beautiful skin?  Part of the reason is because they see aestheticians.  Often.

Your skin is an organ; in fact, it’s the largest organ of your body.  It provides your body with:

  • Protection:  against pathogens
  •  Regulation: your body temperature
  • Controls evaporation:  moisture loss
  • Sensation: contains nerve endings for sensory
  •  Storage: for lipids and water
  • Absorption:  diffuses O2 and CO2
  • Resistance: acts as a water barrier

Case in point:  your skin has many vital roles physiologically.

Everyone’s skin is different, and there is no formula for “dry” or “oily.”  These characteristics are side effects of your physiology.  They are not going to go away unless you approach them at the dermal level.  A good aesthetician can explain to you your underlying physiology.  She can answer questions with medical information and explain what type of products you should be using.  (FYI: the title medical aesthetician doesn’t mean they’re good).

The path to maintaining flawless skin starts with an aesthetician.  It is an investment that will bring you decades of happiness.  You can trade in for a new car at any time, you can’t buy a new face (yet).

(P.S. a dermatologist is not an aesthetician).
