I was recently contacted by the Beauty Changes Lives blog, sponsored by the American Association of Cosmetology Schools, to contribute a blog post answering the question: How do skin care professionals change lives daily? What a gift this was! The skin care industry is full of people who work tirelessly to change lives. I wanted to share my post with you this month, and encourage you to find inspiration to continue the good work that you do by accessing the other posts on this uplifting and motivational blog for the beauty industry.

Skin care professionals change lives daily. I am always surprised at how the skin care industry is often seen by those who aren’t involved in it. It is mistakenly identified as a beauty-focused business that caters only to the wealthy and the narcissistic … and, in my experience, that couldn’t be further from the truth. I want to shout from the rooftops that skin care professionals are some of the kindest, most concerned and most unselfish people in the world. They give back every single day, until their backs and hands ache; the great ones make themselves available to their clients day and night, for skin care needs and even emotional support. Many clients need help with unsightly acne or rosacea, or with accepting the aging reflection in the mirror; and many just need someone to listen, someone to tell them they are beautiful, someone to tell them everything will be OK … and skin care professionals rise to that challenge day in and day out.
