NCEA Certified is the professional status awarded to a skin care professional that has met the competency standards as set-forth by NCEA's 1200 Hour Esthetician Job Task Analysis. It represents the highest skin care credential available in the United States and adherence to the code of ethics of the profession.

Those who choose to become NCEA Certified do so for a variety of reasons, including:
  • Commitment to career and the industry.
  • Desire to challenge skill level and knowledge base.
  • Commitment to personal growth and continuous learning.
  • A move to another state where the hours of training are higher than what they received in school.
  • State endorsement/reciprocity requirement to attain advanced licensure.


  • The reasons also vary with a person's age, longevity in the field and future plans. An added benefit is that NCEA Certified estheticians on average, earn more than their noncertified counterparts. Those who are committed to personal growth are more likely to have the self confidence to seek increasing levels of responsibility and, therefore, higher incomes. Regardless of the reason — it's a good investment in yourself. The NCEA Certified designation could mean the difference between getting or missing out on your next promotion or position. Certification better prepares the skin care professional for today's job market and helps you be better equipped to respond to the constantly changing demands and advances within our profession.

    Cold comfort: The cold laser facial — what it is, why celebrities get it
    National Post
    Trust the sunny West Coast to consider something cold a novelty. And not just the animated Oscar nominee "Frozen." Thanks to the promise of no redness, no skin damage and no downtime, spa treatments that use similar low-level light therapy as sports medicine and chiropractic, called cold laser facials, have found fans in celebrities from Sharon Stone to Sting. The idea is that there is a biological reaction to light — the beam and pulse purports to stimulate cells and that produces a regenerative effect over time.

    Sleep: The most important part of the day
    By Jeff White
    We live in a fast-paced society. Everything needs to be done now, and there's always more we have to do. Multitasking is now the norm, and it's even more hectic when kids are added to the mix. Sound familiar? Being able to do it all is good, but to do it all at the expense of getting a full night's sleep or adequate rest can be detrimental to your health. We all know the benefits of exercise and eating healthy, but sleep is just as important to your overall health, and many of our everyday activities can be drastically affected if we don't get enough.

    Her blog, her brand
    The New York Times
    On her popular blog, Maskcara.com, Cara Brook, 28, sings the praises of highlighting and contouring one's facial features, a process she refers to as HAC'ing — pronounced "hacking". She gleaned the technique — in which a color a few shades darker than the skin is used to create shadows on the edges and in the hollows of the face while a slightly lighter one plays up the high planes of the cheekbones, nose, forehead and chin — from books by the makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin, which she pored over as a teenager obsessed with the beauty business. "It's a magical thing," she effused in a how-to video.

    Interventions for preventing the spread of infestation in close contacts of people with scabies
    The Cochrane Library
    Scabies is a common parasitic infection. While anyone can become infected, it causes significant morbidity in immunocompromised hosts and it spreads easily between human hosts where there is overcrowding or poor sanitation. Consequently, it is usually recommended that when an index case is being treated, others who have been in close contact with the index case should also be provided with treatment.

    Skin Inc.
    Establishing and running a successful skin care business requires wit and panache. Half the battle most spa owners and estheticians face is getting clients to walk through the doors, which makes it all the more important to begin the art of selling skin care as soon as a client steps inside.

    TEACHING TIPS


    Teaching evaluation systems: Making education more effective
    Archita Datta Majumdar
    Training and education are the foundations for teachers' careers in their initial years. Their success and effective contribution to future generations happen only through a process of continuous improvement, which is through upgrades to their knowledge, enhanced teaching aids and objective feedback for their performance. Teaching cannot be static, and it is teachers who have to understand, accept and imbibe the change around them to incorporate the same in the way they teach. This adds to their experience and marks the efficacy of their methods, which are correctly scanned in the teaching evaluation systems.
