Esthetician vs Dermatologist: Who Should You See for Your Skin?

Esthetician vs Dermatologist:Who Should You See for Your Skin?

There are many skin care professionals you can consult with about how to care for your skin but the two most popular would be either a licensed esthetician or dermatologist. I recently had a client come to see me for a facial treatment, and during our consultation she told me, “I’ve gone to see everyone for my skin and haven’t got much result. This is why I’m here to see you today.”

But what are the main differences between seeing a dermatologist for your skin versus seeing an esthetician?

Stop by if you need a hug!

Hugging therapy is definitely a powerful way of healing. Research shows that hugging (and also laughter) is extremely effective at healing sickness, disease, loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress.
 
Research shows a proper deep hug, where the hearts are pressing together, can benefit you in these ways:
 
1. The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. This helps with open and honest communication.
 
2. Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.

The Not So A"peel"ing Truth About Exfoliation

The Not So A"peel"ing #Truth #About #Exfoliation

Exfoliation. As an adult, you’ve probably come a long way from the days of rubbing your skin raw with that infamous apricot scrub, trying to scour away every impurity and imperfection. You’ve likely moved on to more “sophisticated” means of exfoliation, ones that promise to go deeper, speeding up cell turnover within the dermis to reveal fresher, younger looking skin. AHAs. BHAs. Glycolics. Retinol. And if you’re really determined, laser peels.

“Even skin tone is a universal sign of youth and beauty. As you age photodamage from the sun and environmental toxins can create dark spots and uneven pigmentation on the skin, along with fine wrinkles and rough skin texture” – Dr Marc Ronert

Overview
The face is full of nerves and pleasure points, so it makes sense that a facial massage is a desirable form of pampering. Give yourself a facial massage or visit a professional. Whether you are looking... for a quick midday pick-me-up or a soothing escape, the luxury of massage is easily justified by some of its more practical benefits.

Get in a Better Mood
Facial massage decreases anxiety and can improve a negative mood, according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute.

Ower-the-counter cosmetic vs. Cosmeceuticals

The FDA recognizes two categories: pharmaceutical and OTC cosmetics, which are defined as:
Pharmaceutical or drug: FD&C Act, sec. 201(g)(1)].
Topical pharmaceuticals penetrate through the layers of the epidermis and affect the structure and function of the skin (think of prescription topical steroids or Retin-A).
OTC Cosmetic: FD&C Act, sec. 201(i)].
Since many consumers “self-diagnose” when choosing a skin care product from a department/drug store, these products must be made safely. Meaning, big cosmetic companies cannot afford to have a huge number of consumers with issues from using very active products — so, that skin care product may feel good and smell good, but, most likely won’t have a lot of activity in its formulation.
