11 Signs You May Be A Future Esthetician

The title of “esthetician” has a very clinical—and somewhat grave—sound to it, but in reality, it’s one of the most hands-on, caring fields in the beauty industry. Students of esthetics are responsible for transforming the very fabric of human beauty, the skin, creating a healthy foundation for all other treatments to follow.

In addition to working on complexion issues, estheticians learn proper waxing and other skin-related techniques, equipping them to provide a total polished surface for their clients.

Estheticians also enjoy the bonus of a range of attractive career opportunities. Spas and clinics in need of these professionals abound—would you prefer working in a medical office, cruise ship, or even a destination spa? The choices are broad and varied!

If all this sounds more than “skin deep” to you, here’s a few fun signs to consider that might just indicate you’re perfect for the field of esthetics!

#1. As a child, you didn’t make pies with your mud puddles. You slathered it right on your face—just like the ladies in mommy’s beauty magazines!

#2. When you became a little older, you came up with your own unique Mother’s Day gift: A homemade “spa day,” complete with cucumber slices, bubble bath, and scented candles for Mom.

#3. As a teenager, your birthday list included a Clarisonic set, plus magnifying lamp.

#4. Also, you were likely the only one of your crowd who resisted picking at those pesky adolescent pimples (and you yelled at your friends when they did so, too)!

#5. Speaking of pimples and blackheads, they’ve never grossed you out. In fact, you actually get a lot of satisfaction from extracting them—properly, of course!

#6. You can whip up a homemade facial using just about any ingredients in anyone’s refrigerator/pantry—and you can specialize it to a particular skin condition, too.

#7. You have always received compliments for your glowing, satiny complexion. And nine times out of 10, you aren’t wearing makeup.

#8. Nothing makes you cringe more than a bad (or nonexistent) bikini wax at the pool or beach.

#9. Oh wait, take that back. Nothing makes you cringe more than people who don’t use sunscreen at the pool or beach!

#10. You love the smell of eucalyptus, and nothing makes you happier than the idea of spending every day in a spa.

#11. Even more than that, you love the idea of getting down to the actual root surface of what makes a person physically beautiful. You believe a perfect canvas is an essential start to any work of art!
