From The Editor

April 2018

You and I both know that being an esthetician means more than just cleansing and caring for our clients’ skin. We are oftentimes their friend, confidant, and shoulder to lean on. As an esthetician, you have the unique ability to peek into your clients’ lives through their skin; you can see stress, fatigue, and the imprint of expressions of joy, sadness and excitement. Reading your client’s skin is an important part of your comprehensive consultation.

This month, brush up on your ability to read your client’s skin through the lens of their gut and nutritional health. Studies have proven time and time again that what we consume does in fact have an effect on the condition of our skin. This month’s special guide: Gut & Skin explores the connection between your client’s digestive health and their tendency to experience acne, rosacea, inflammation and an array of skin conditions. We’ve gathered experts from the nutritional esthetics community to share their insight on how to see your client’s skin with an inner beauty perspective.

Continuing your growth as both a fruitful business and a service provider is our mission here at LNE. I hope you find this guide interesting and insightful and that you garner a new outlook on your methods of skin analysis.

For more Gut & Skin education, as well as advanced Wellness and Inner Beauty topics, join me this month at The International Congress of Esthetics and Spa in Philadelphia, April 22-23! I can’t wait to meet all of you!

All the best,

Cristina Beecham
