Holistic Skin Care Practitioner Career Description
Holistic skin care specialists are specially trained estheticians who work with clients to determine a natural, holistic skin care routine and to provide holistic skin care services to correct or prevent the signs of aging, sun damage, pollution, poor diet and stress. Holistic skin care specialists provide skin care services such as facials, cleansing, face and body masks, body wraps, salt scrubs and treatments for skin conditions, as well as consulting with the client about diet, exercise, stress levels and other factors that affect the skin.
Folks who want to provide holistic skin care services to clients will need to obtain an esthetician license and holistic skin care certification. Licensing laws for estheticians vary by state; therefore, prospective estheticians and holistic skin care specialists will need to contact their state regulatory agency to determine the requirements for obtaining a license and practicing in that state. Many estheticians and holistic skin care professionals also choose to become a member of national or international professional organizations to stay abreast of advances and news in the skin care industry.
