Taking care of your skin is a lot more difficult than it may seem. With breakouts, redness, and even dryness, there always seems like too many problems to address. Don’t get us started on the endless amount of skincare products out there. How can you possibly choose what’s going to work best for your skin? If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it might be time to get yourself a skincare consultation. Going to get your skin checked out might be a little nerve-wracking, which is why we’ve outlined everything you will learn in your first skincare consultation.
What is a Skincare Consultation?
To start, a skincare consultation is when you meet with an aesthetician (a trained skincare professional) to address your skincare needs. You’ll first start by discussing why you are there in the first place. They’ll ask you questions about your skin like if it’s oily, dry, or normal and then ask you about the problem areas you want to address. Skin problems can include wrinkles, redness, dullness, dark spots, and hydration. Make sure to speak up about what you would like to address and have your esthetician answer any questions, they’ll be more than happy to do so!
During your first skin consultation, your aesthetician may ask you about your skin history. These types of questions will address topics such as tanning or smoking, as well as if you have a history of acne or other skin conditions. These factors may affect the recommendations your esthetician will make.
Product and Regimen Recommendations
Now that you’ve gone over all of your questions, skin history, and problem areas, your aesthetician will be ready to recommend products and regimens. They should describe each product to you in detail to help you decide which products to purchase. These recommendations are tailored to your specific skin needs and should help any problem areas that you discussed. A great first consultation should end with discussing a skin review. Once you’ve had time to try out the products, you can meet with your aesthetician to go over the results. This allows you to tweak the routine if certain things aren’t working.
Your first skin consultation should be a comfortable learning experience. You’ll get to understand your skin and the causes of certain problems you are facing. You will also receive expert advice and recommendations for products specifically designed for your skin. No more wading through online reviews or listening to your co-workers advice.
Your skin consultation is all about you. Feel free to ask your aesthetician any questions you have. They are happy to help you understand your skin and the products they recommend to get you started on the best skincare routine for you.
So, now that you know what to expect, why not schedule your first consultation? Your skin will thank you later.
