Fearless Beauties: Treating Skin of Color with Confidence

Mar. 17, 3:00 - 3:30 pm, Mary Nielsen

The claim that ‘everyone is beautiful’ needs to be validated by making services and products available to all ethnic, cultural and racial backgrounds. We need to recognize and legitimize that these subsets within our country may have differing views of what is beautiful, different standards for beauty and different ways of honoring and respecting that beauty. By developing a more inclusive viewpoint, we elevate our entire industry. Mary Nielsen, executive director Spectrum Advanced Aesthetics Institue, will lead you through learning about the movement to more inclusive skin care, treating multiple ethnicities and how to adapt your consultation to cater toward all skin shades.
