How did you decide to become an esthetician?

We posted a question on our social media accounts asking why you decided to get into esthetics, and we couldn’t believe all the ways life has weaved so many paths into a career in skin care.

From natural-born caretakers, to those fascinated with chemistry early on, your answers have not only reminded us of why we also chose a career in skin care, but also renewed our excitement for all the rewarding opportunities that this career brings.

Take a look at what other estheticians are saying and share your feedback with us too!

Check out the original post here, and watch for the next issue of ASCP's Skin Deep magazine, where your answer may be featured!


I have always loved working with people.  Making them feel and look better.  I worked as a dental assistant for over 25 years and I always wanted to work for myself.  I finally went back to school and now am doing what I love.  Helping people with their skin care needs.  It not only helps them, but it helps me as well.  Every person that leaves my treatment room, and feels and looks better, makes me happy.   Skin care is my passion, and now it is my dream that has come true.  

Thank you for sharing, Kimberly! We are glad you became an esthetician, too, because now we get to work with you. It sounds like you're doing things right with your practice. Way to go!
