Celebrating National Aesthetician Month With CosMedix

Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita

A few weeks ago you may have seen on Snapchat or Facebook that I did a fun Facebook Live post with Ryan of COSMEDIX. We chatted all things skincare and how to take care of your skin while you travel. With so much travel in my schedule these days, it’s been really important to me to get into a good routine and really understand what I need to pack and what needs to stay home.  Afterwards, I went in for a treatment with my aesthetician Miranda to get my skin back on track after being out of town for almost a month!  You can check out our Facebook Live post here and keep scrolling for more information on why October is now National Aesthetician Month!Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita Aesthetician tips, where to find a good aesthetician, facial tips - My Style Vita @mystylevita

Do you have a good aesthetician that you see regularly? I find that a lot of my friends don’t and I think that’s pretty surprising. As we’re all pushing 30 over here, I think taking care of my skin has crept up to be one of the most important things to me. For someone who wears makeup, is a sun worshiper, and does a decent amount of tequila shots, my skincare routine is crucial to staying youthful looking. 

COSMEDIX has officially dubbed October as National Aesthetician Month. This is in an effort to bring awareness to those skin care professionals who help make us not only look beautiful, but feel it too. They’re the first line of defense when you have any sort of skin care issue or concern. 

I wasn’t super consistent about seeing an aesthetician until the last year or so. Just like you see a hair stylist every 6-8 weeks and you swear by them, that’s how I now feel about my aesthetician, Miranda, at WIFH in Dunwoody. Since I visit her every so often, she’s able to see the progress in my skin as well as any changes and make tailored recommendations to make sure I’m getting the best out of my skincare routine. Seeing someone regularly you’ll definitely begin to see a change in the texture and clarity of your skin.  Miranda recommends seeing an aesthetician at least once a season to start with.

In addition to having an aesthetician in your back pocket, I think it’s important to make the switch from drugstore skincare to higher quality ones. I’ve noticed a huge change in my skin once I updated my products to COSMEDIX (you can see my daily, nightly routine here). Quality ingredients and formulas are key to seeing a change. To give you a really great example of how my skin has changed, I usually break out heavily when it becomes hot and sweaty outside. While in Greece, the last few days my skin was really getting angry. Since I left my retinol at home (which was recommended by my aesthetician since retinol and too much sun is a bad idea) I knew as soon as I got back I had to get back to my routine. Within 3 days of sticking to my usual skincare routine, plus a good mask, once I was home, my skin was back to normal. I used my Pure Enzymes mask to help really jumpstart this as well. What usually took weeks to clear up just took a matter of days. Miranda said thanks to these formulas, they are fighting the bacteria on the surface and also helping to work deep down in your skin. So not only is the surface getting better, but the way my skin reacts is improving as well.

I like to ask Miranda TONS of questions when I see her so that I know what to do when I’m in a situation like I was in Greece. Upon returning, I knew exactly how to get my skin back in order and that was thanks to her. She’s always providing me with great tips and insider tricks to making sure my skin looks great. Plus, if I ever have some sort of crazy reaction or concern, I can shoot her a quick text and make sure things are normal.  An aesthetician on call? Don’t mind if I do!

If you don’t have a regular aesthetician and want to find one in your area,  you can head to the COSMEDIX aesthetician finder here to track someone down. These professionals are knowledgable with the products and treatments so you can go in trusting you’re getting the best of the best.

      Yes can’t wait to hear what you think. Make sure you start using the Pure Enzymes, it’s my FAVORITE. Like a facial at home.

    I’m definitely guilty of neglecting my poor skin! This reminds me to go for sure. <3

    Stefanie Eadie

    yes!! skincare is so important. I wish I would have learned when I was a teenager about protecting my skin and taking care of it. but I’m all about it now! thanks for sharing!

      Jessica

      I was thankfully always into sunscreen, but still, it’s not smart to sit out ALL DAY LONG in the sun.

    Mary Powers

    What a great post and no I don’t see one regularly, or ever, really!! This definitely motivates me to find one!! I am right there with you on the sun worshiping and once I hit 30, I realized how silly I was to be so careless with my skin 🙁 Thanks for sharing!

      Jessica

      Ugh don’t get me started on turning 30 and all the damage I’ve done. I love my aesthetician and think this will be a great start to preventing those wrinkles!

    I don’t have one!! And since grandma is officially OVER 30, maybe I NEED one lol! You have fab skin, I should definitely copy your routine haha!

    I loved this post. I’ve actually never thought about seeing an aesthetician, but after reading this I definitely need to look into it. Loved hearing your take on it!

      Jessica

      Oh no you have to! Even starting just twice a year I think is a good place to be at. It’s important to get all that gunk out and help to rejuvenate.

    Lauren

    This is such a great reminder to get back into a better routine with my skincare! It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten a facial!

      Jessica

      Yes Definitely make an appointment! Have you tried the COSMEDIX ones? Definitely recommend finding someone in your area with them.

    Lauren

    It’s seriously so important to take care of your skin and I’ve been slacking a little lately but this post is just what I needed! I actually told my mom earlier today how badly I need to get a facial!

    Lauren

      Jessica

      Yes it’s super important. And if you go 2-4 times a year you’ll definitely see a difference.

    Kasey

    Wow, I had no idea you should see an aesthetician that often! I have been seiously neglecting my skin for basically ever and really need to start taking care of it!

      Jessica

      I felt the same way! I can really tell a difference in my skin. I still get breakouts occasionally, but I think Ill just always be that way (and I’m REALLY bad at my nighttime habits of washing my face). But it definitely bounces back faster, and the texture has improved.

    Interesting post! So cool you got to see an expert about your skincare – mine goes CRAZY when I travel!
