  • It's important to take care of your skin if you spend a lot of time working, relaxing or exercising outdoors. Skin care tips for working outside

    Spending time outside is important, whether you're working, exercising or just relaxing. However, you can't forget to take extra precautions to protect your skin from harmful UV Rays. As you'll learn in an esthetics program, damage to your skin from the sun, wind and other elements can cause dryness, irritation, wrinkles and health issues such as cancer that can negatively impact your quality of life.

    Let's take a look at how to help keep your skin glowing and youthful after spending time outside:

    Always wear sun protection
    You know that you should wear sunscreen if you hit the beach or the pool during the summer months, but did you realize that the sun's harmful rays can affect your skin all year long, rain or shine? Because of this, it's imperative that you wear broad spectrum UVA and UVB protective sunscreen 365 days a year on any part of your skin that's exposed. Princeton University's health care services suggests that you apply at least SPF 15, but SPF 30 or higher will offer longer protection. If you're outdoors for several hours, make sure you are reapplying your sunscreen according to the manufacturer's directions.

    Understand your surroundings
    Your location will determine how much you need to protect your skin from the sun. Did you know that UV rays bounce off sand, concrete, water, snow and lightly colored surfaces? UVA rays even penetrate through the windows of our cars!  So take extra precautions to ensure that your skin is being fully protected, even if you only have a 10 minute drive to work.

    Protective Clothing 
    When choosing your outfit for outdoor work or exercise, consider options that will offer protection from the sun, wind, cold, and heat. Wide-brimmed hats, UV-protected sunglasses, long pants and long-sleeve shirts go a long way to protecting you. According to Skincancer.org, choosing closely-woven clothing that UV rays can't penetrate is your best option to preventing skin damage. There are numerous online Sun Protection Clothing outlets offering lightweight SPF 50+ clothing items.

    Wash away the day
    After a long day in the sun you'll want to shower soon after arriving home to wash away all the accumulation of the day's debris. Leaving even trace amounts of impurities on your skin will be sure to clog pores, which can lead to breakouts on any part of the body. Be sure to choose the correct products, separate face and body washes, toners, and tonics that are gentle on the skin. And most importantly: Don't forget to moisturize! Moisturizing is an important step in a skin care routine for both your face and the rest of your body. It's a good idea to apply a face moisturizer in the morning and at night after washing your face and a body lotion after each shower.


  • Choosing certain colors can inspire different feelings and moods. How do colors affect mood?

    Blue is the color of water, yellow is reminiscent of a sunshine and linked to happiness and green is a calming color that reminds many of the Earth. Some colors have very distinct and obvious moods and feeling associations, and it's not hard to see why.

    As you work toward becoming an esthetician, you'll learn that setting the mood is just as important as the treatment you're providing. You want people to feel as relaxed, soothed and comfortable during their appointment, and choosing the right color scheme in your decor and styling will make a huge impact.

    Here are some popular color options and what moods are associated with them:

    Yellow
    As we mentioned, yellow is the color of sunshine and light, so it makes sense that these hues are linked to feelings of optimism, joy, cheerfulness, warmth and energy. Brighter shades of yellow certainly grab attention while lighter ones can create a calming effect that still retains energy.

    Green
    Green is not only the color of nature, but it's also associated with health. According to SunnyColours.com, shades of green can have a positive effect on headaches or sensations of sadness because they stimulate feelings of freshness, harmony and balance. Green can also make people feel safe, so it can be a useful color to display in your treatment room.

    Blue
    Like green, blue is also found in nature. The connection to water gives shades of blue a relaxing, calming and cleansing sense, which can help put people at ease and encourage calmness. As a cool color, blue also promotes tranquility.

    Brown
    This earth tone can help people feel grounded and balanced, as brown is a neutral tone that creates a sense of peace as well as safety. Debbie Wiener of My Designing Solutions told Fox News that browns give her the impression of coziness, especially the darker, richer shades.

    Purple
    This color is often associated with royalty, so it can create a sense of power and richness. Clients will certainly want to luxuriate during their skin care treatment, and a shade of purple can help inspire this. Purple combines the energy and vibrancy of red with the stability and peace of blue.

    White
    White is often seen as the color of purity as well as cleanliness, which is always an important aspect in an esthetician's room. White inspires positive connotations, so having a space that's this color will invoke happier feelings in people while still allowing them to relax.

    When incorporating different colors into your decor, be sure to consider how the shades will play off of each other and what emotions they can evoke. Creating the right color palette will go a long way in helping men and women have the total package of a multisensory experience.


  • It's important to determine what makeup style is best suited to different events. How to: Pick the right event makeup

    Whether you're known for your signature style or you enjoy exploring and playing with different options, you might have to tweak your look depending on where you are going. If you're considering taking makeup workshops or pursing a career in the cosmetology industry, chances are you'll learn the importance of the right look for various events. Just as it might make you feel awkward to show up somewhere over- or under-dressed, arriving with too much makeup on could have a similar result.

    Let's take a look at how you can dazzle with the right look for different events:

    Party
    If you're heading to a party or out for a night on the town, you'll definitely want a wow look. Since it's likely that this is an evening event, you can create a more dramatic style as you have the freedom to play with your look a bit more for events such as this. Metallics are trending right now, according to InStyle magazine, so you can opt for a funky metal shade of eyeshadow paired with an eyeliner to create that smoky eye effect. Heading out for the evening is also a great time to play up your lip color with a vibrant red or deep maroon. Finish the look off with some blush to your cheeks for a rosy complexion and you will be party ready.

    Interview
    Whether you're attending an interview for cosmetology school or a job interview, you want your look to appear polished, put together and professional from head to toe. When it comes to your makeup style for this occasion, remember that less is more. Too much eye shadow, blush or lipstick may distract the interviewer from what you are saying, and you want your makeup to appear natural. Since interviews can be stressful, keep your makeup simple and simply enhance your features. Applying mascara will help your eyes look alert and focused, and if you use eye shadow, opt for a neutral tone and skip the heavy eyeliner. A touch of blush on the cheeks will do, and finish off the look with a slick of clear gloss on your lips.

    Wedding
    Attending a wedding is always a lot of fun, and you'll want to keep your makeup natural but playful. Like an interview, a little bit can go a long way when getting ready for a wedding, but your look can also be determined by if the nuptials will take place during the day or at night. For a daytime wedding, you want to keep your makeup more natural and classic, so mascara and neutral eyeshadows will do with little to no eyeliner. It's also best to keep your lips in a more a natural shade. If the wedding is in the evening, you can make your eyes a little more dramatic by adding liner, and you might want to opt for a brighter or deeper lip tone.

    First Date
    You want to make a good first impression with both your personality and your look on a first date, so you'll definitely want to play up your best features. If it's your eyes, you can make them pop by using an eyeshadow that contrasts your eye color: brown for blue eyes, purple for green eyes, and violet or metallic for brown eyes. Adding eyeliner and mascara will help define your eyes, and be sure to curl your eyelashes! If your lips are your best feature, opt for a rich shade of red or plum – just remember that lipstick should not be a darker shade than your eyeshadow. Blush or bronzer on the apples of your cheeks will tie the look together.
