skin care advice

The difference between poor skin care advice and good skin care advice can be vast. There is so much information available now at the click of a button that you can literally google your way through brain surgery. The same is true for your skin. You can google the best skin care products, the best masks and the best devices for anti-aging. But should you? 


Last year in our blog, What Your Esthetician Doesn’t Want You to Know About Skin Care, we touched on some examples of poor skin care advice and why it can be dangerous. Along those lines there are things that your esthetician is NOT going to share with you. Why? Because while she wants what’s best for you, she doesn’t want to offend or deter your curiosity. But here’s what she’s really thinking:


1)    The internet is not always right – What?! You mean not everything I read and learn on the internet is correct? It’s true. And while it’s the quickest and easiest way to answer some of our most burning questions, the reality is that there is information about skin care that could actually cause harm.


2)    Your BFF is not always right – It’s not all her fault, she is just trying to help, but she may not know the difference between a suggestion from a colleague or something she read in a magazine.


3)    Your favorite glam magazine is not always right – You probably saw that one coming.  We know it’s a tough pill to swallow. But remember when you read about skin care in a tabloid, the source of the advice may not be the expert that you think they are. If you are truly a skin care student and want to learn more, stick to true skin care trade magazines. Contributors are always qualified to give good sound advice.


The easiest way to learn about what is good for your skin and to define a skin care protocol that’s right for you, is to talk with your local esthetician. They are trained and certified to help you determine what’s going to make the biggest impact on your skin.
