Whenever I’m consulting with a client on their skin, they usually have a long list of concerns to share with me. Large pores, breakouts, wrinkles, brown spots, aging, blackheads, sensitivity, brown spots, redness and the list can go on and on. While it’s certainly appropriate to express ALL the perceived issues, I also know it’s important to really understand what’s most bothering them about their skin. Where can we best focus our game plan?
To develop a good skin care strategy for my clients, I like to start by asking their top three concerns in order of priority. As an esthetician, this really helps me understand what is bothering them the most so I can develop an appropriate home care and professional strategy.
How does this help you, the client? It also enables you to get a clear focus on a plan of attack. Understanding your concerns by narrowing priorities down to the top three will give you a better guideline on treatments to pursue, habits to form or lose, and products to choose. The end result is, well, better end results. Get clear on what your concerns are and your skincare professional can be really clear on what to do with your skin!…
