There is no questioning that the landscape of our industry has changed largely because of the influence of technology. With the limitations of in-person interactions, 2020 initiated a shift (or a shove) toward virtual socialization. We embraced Zoom meetings, oversaw virtual schooling, had virtual doctor visits. Now, many of those practices have become the norm. So, are virtual visits with an esthetician the latest industry advancement, or just a passing trend?

About Ella Cressman:
Ella Cressman is a licensed esthetician, certified organic formulator, business owner, and absolute ingredient junkie! As an educator, she enjoys empowering other estheticians and industry professionals to understand skin care from an ingredient standpoint rather than a product-specific view.
She has spent many hours researching ingredients, understanding how and where they are sourced, as well as phytochemistry, histological access, and complementary compounds for intentional skin benefits. In addition to running a skin care practice, Cressman founded a comprehensive consulting group, the HHP Collective, and has consulted for several skin care lines, including several successful CBD brands.
