2 Reasons to Fast Track an Exciting, Lucrative Career as an Aesthetician

Finishing school next year and wondering what to do with the rest of your life, or has the lockdown blues got you thinking that life is too short to spend it in a job that brings you little joy? Today, choosing a career is a tough decision. Whereas some people spend their lives in search of career satisfaction, others are born knowing their life’s work. If you are passionate, patient, creative, driven, and drawn to a career that encourages others to feel beautiful in their skin, here are two brilliant reasons to become an aesthetician.

Aesthetics is a Popular and Growing Market

No matter where you are in the world – as long as humans need to feel and look good – there will always be people who want skincare services. Even during a global crisis, the beauty and wellness industry continues to develop. Recession-proof and pandemic-proof, the skincare, beauty, and wellness industry is on an accelerated trajectory upward. The beauty industry is worth $532 billion, and with the influx of younger generations and new technologies, statisticians expect the industry to increase to $716.3 billion by 2025.

Your Career Opportunities Are Many

Driven by the demand for skincare, holistic health, and overall wellbeing, a diploma in aesthetics will unlock many career opportunities. As an aesthetician, you will have many clients with different beauty regimens, which means you will be dealing with different treatments, products, challenges, and techniques – expanding your skills and experience. You could easily get a job as a medical aesthetician for a plastic surgeon, or you could become a salon aesthetician, skincare specialist, beauty editor, or make-up artist. Besides skincare and beauty, relaxation and stress relief are top reasons for visiting a beauty and wellness specialist, which means you can include body and facial massage therapies to your list of services.
