“I cannot believe how many of my new clients say that they base skincare off of YouTube and Instagram influencers or someone they know who may or may not have the same skin conditions,” says Brooke Bateman, licensed esthetician + owner of The Refinery Esthetics Bar. “By seeing an esthetician, you get the fastest response to your current skin status.”
Skin varies so much from person to person that someone with similar dryness concerns could have other skin issues contributing to their particular dryness, so what they recommend to you may actually be more detrimental than helpful. Similarly, just because you struggled with acne a few months ago and used products created for acne doesn’t necessarily mean you should keep following the exact routine - it may be too harsh now that your breakouts have subsided.
“Our skin is our largest organ and its needs can change constantly,” says Rita Holland, licensed esthetician + owner of Marguerite’s Skin Care and Makeup. “It is always a good idea to have skin assessed regularly to ensure it is getting what it needs. This way, you aren’t using the wrong products for your skin type or current needs.”
“Your esthetician acts your own personal skincare architect, taking in all aspects of your life, skincare concerns and preferences for your spa treatment," emphasizes Houtz. Getting custom care tailored to your exact skin concerns shouldn’t be a tall order. That’s why we don't believe in off-the-shelf, one-size-fits all skin care - Bioelements estheticians do a thorough intake + analysis of your skin before proceeding with a treatment made exclusively for you. They are able to enhance your facial with Custom Blends to target specific skin concerns, increasing its effectiveness. This is one major benefit of a facial, specifically a Bioelements facial, and a combination of consistent personalized skin care in the treatment room and at home will be the key to lasting results.
