Not to be confused with a dermatologist, these experts operate in day spas and salons, mostly. They are still highly-trained and are educated in knowing how to diagnose skin care problems, which they can use to determine if you need to see a medical health professional or not. Having a regular skin care specialist can be important, as they will get to know how your skin reacts to certain things and be able to guide you into making better health decisions, while being your first line of defense against things like allergens, skin disease, and even cancer.
Self-care is important
Often called estheticians, skin care experts have the ability to detoxify, cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate, de-hair, massage, and apply cosmetics to make your skin radiant again. One of the most popular skin care treatments an esthetician will administer is a chemical peel, to remove dead skin or the beginnings of wrinkles, before they have the chance to get worse. A chemical peel sounds dangerous, but it is actually quite safe and only affects the top layer of skin.
Hair removal is also a big part of beautification, for both women and men. Ingrown hairs, unibrows, and unsightly lip hair are hard to take care of by yourself, so getting it done by a skin care specialist is almost required. They can remove hair by either waxing or by laser hair removal.
After you get all the more involved work done to your skin, your esthetician can help refresh your face with face washes, lotions, and various moisturizing products that you like best. It feels good to get a nice massage in Ottawa with a nice herbal rub to reverse that nasty dryness that we all get. Some estheticians are dual-trained in massage therapy, which is great for an all-day relaxation at the spa. The detoxification and beautification process will not only change how you look, but also how you feel and even think. You deserve to spoil yourself, your body, at least once a year.
