   Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

NCEA's Mission Statement

The coalition is a group of active skin care associations, companies & individuals, who have united to establish standards and best practices, and provide political representation for our profession to state legislators and licensing boards.

NCEA is protecting your right to practice by...
    • Addressing current issues that impact your income
    • Developing professional and educational guidelines
    • Representing your interests at the state regulatory level
    • Strengthening your voice in the industry

10 reasons why NOT to join the NCEA
    1. My license doesn't need protecting...

    2. Why do we need to help state boards, they are just going to do what they want anyway...

    3. How can 10,000 estheticians possibly make a difference?

    4. I know enough to get by...

    5. If I can no longer do a procedure...oh well...its only money!

    6. $45 a year for what? Two websites, National Teacher Conference, NCEA Certification Program, Commission on Accreditation... I should get this all for FREE

    7. Why do we need to raise the level of education anyway?

    8. I like paying $225 for an all-day course to get sales pitch - so why do we need to accredit continuing education programs?

    9. Nationally Standardized Esthetician Training? I'm never moving...

    10. Whatever... Okay - WHERE DO I SIGN UP? JOIN NOW

Skin cancer also strikes people of color
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Flor Mayoral understands why so many of her Hispanic patients ignore warnings about too much sun, never use sunscreen and express absolute shock when they are diagnosed with skin cancer. The Miami dermatologist says her patients have heard that those most at risk have pale skin, blond hair, blue eyes and freckles. And it's true that the risk for skin cancer is lower the darker your skin is—meaning most Hispanics and blacks in the USA are at lower risk than most whites. But lower doesn't mean zero. And, when it comes to melanoma, a dangerous form of skin cancer, a lack of concern can be deadly. Studies show that though blacks and Hispanics are much less likely than whites to get melanoma, they are much more likely to be diagnosed at a late stage and die from it. More
