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.

7 signs you have too many toxins in your life
You think you're healthy, but you don't feel vibrant. You struggle to find the energy to get through the day. You're irritable. Your stomach isn't acting right. And all those headaches.
These types of ailments affect many of us in our daily lives. They're not serious enough to warrant a trip to the doctor but they still tend to drag you down, wearing away your resistance and leaving you feeling like you're just getting old.
Here's some good news — it probably has nothing to do with aging. Instead, you may simply be surrounded by too many toxins.
"To obtain the NCEA Certification has been one of the most rewarding moments in my career of esthetics."
