20 Years of Beauty: Lessons from an Esthetician

20 Years of Beauty: Lessons from an Esthetician

Hello! So happy you are here! This year, 2024, I turn 20 as a California licensed Esthetician. Here's part of my story:

I was always interested in wellness and someone told me about their esthetician friend - it sparked something in me. I inquired in the schooling and next thing you know, I was on my way to becoming a California licensed esthetician. 

After graduating and passing the state exams to get my license, I began working at my first day spa. My first job as an esthetician, I was so busy! I really enjoyed the skincare aspect of it, not so much waxing. People were drawn to my touch. I became strong in product recommendation and knowledge. I furthered my education at the International Dermal Institute throughout the years. Furthering my education was always a priority and still is.

I continued to work at different spas and with many skin care product lines! I did take some time off when I had a baby. I went back to working as an esthetician but had to get a second job working in the school district. As lovely as it is to be an esthetician, it is not always a priority service to others. 

Fast forward to covid/pandemic/shut down. During this time, like many I was not able to work. In the spring of 2021, I felt lead to see what places are available to lease. The very first place I went to look at became the place which is now my skincare wellness business - Skin Of Light!

Skin Of Light

For over two decades, as an esthetician I have been dedicated to helping clients achieve radiant, glowing skin. Through years of experience and expertise, I have gathered valuable insights that have transformed the way people approach skincare. Here are some of the most impactful lessons I've learned along the way.

1. Consistency is Key

One of the most important lessons I have learned is the power of consistency. Establishing a skincare routine and sticking to it diligently can make a world of difference in the health and appearance of your skin. Small, daily habits can lead to long-lasting results.


2. Sun Protection is Non-Negotiable

Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays is essential for maintaining a youthful complexion. Sunscreen should be a non-negotiable step in your skincare routine, regardless of the weather or time of year.

Keeping your skin hydrated is crucial for maintaining its elasticity and suppleness. Drinking plenty of water and using hydrating skincare products can help your skin look and feel its best.

4. Treat Your Skin with Kindness

Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive treatments that can damage your skin in the long run. Opt for gentle, nourishing products that support your skin's natural balance.
