  • Follow these tips to become great at grilling. 6 tips to become a master griller

    After a busy week of barber training, you may be ready to kick back on the weekends with good friends, great food and plenty of relaxation. Even though summer is quickly giving way to fall, there are still plenty of warm days ahead to fire up the grill and cook something delicious as you enjoy the sunshine outdoors.

    You might host a Saturday afternoon barbecue or you're tailgating for your favorite football team, grilling up delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and other tasty treats. This will not only have your mouth water, but it's sure to make you popular with your buddies as well. If you're determine to be crowned "No. 1 griller" in your group of friends this year, check out these tips:griller" in your group of friends this year, check out these tips:

    1. Preheat the grill: As with cooking in the oven, it's a good idea to preheat your grill for about 15 to 25 minutes before you begin, according to Eating Well. This helps ensure that the grill is the right temperature - between 400 and 450 degrees Fahrenheit for high, 350 and 400 degrees for medium-high and 300 to 350 degrees for medium. Low heat should fall between 250 and 300 degrees. Allowing the grill to properly heat up before using it sears the meat instantly, which keeps the inside nice and juicy.

    2. Meat should be room temperature: Chef Bobby Flay says you should take steaks out of the refrigerator about 20 minutes before you plan on grilling them so they can warm to room temperature. This is important because cold steaks won't cook evenly.

    3. Keep it clean: Once your grill is hot, it'll be easier to remove any stuck-on debris, so use a wire grill brush to clean off the grill rack before cooking. Be sure to give it a good scrape after you finish grilling as well.

    4. Be patient: Grilling usually means cooking food for a longer amount of time over a lower heat, so don't rush to get through preparing your meal. Instead of constantly flipping meat, give steaks, burgers or ribs time to get that tasty seared crust before flipping them. This also helps prevent the meat from sticking to the grill rack.

    5. Check to see if it's done: Bobby Flay suggests using a touch test to see if a steak is done. Rare meat feels spongy and soft, medium meat springs back a bit when pressed, and well-done meat is firm to the touch. You can also use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Flay also says it's better to err on the side of undercooking rather than overcooking meat on the grill because you can always throw the steak or burger back on the heat for a few more minutes.

    6. Don't dive right in: The smell of grilled food is sure to make you hungry, but give meat at least five minutes to sit after you finish cooking. This gives the juices a chance to redistribute themselves and settle back into the steak or burger, making it even more delicious.

  • 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, 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:

    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 is not only the color of nature, but it's also associated with health. According to, 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
