The 80/20 Rule of Skincare

We have all been there, wishing there was a quick fix to all our skin concerns. It is easy to assume that you will visit an esthetician and think that after one visit your concerns will be gone, however, a professional should provide you with guidance on what you will need to do in order to see long term results in addition to the professional treatment plan. That plan and suggested routine will come from not just a skin analysis but also through a consultation, this is a great opportunity to provide details for better customization.

Think of an esthetician as your skin guru that will coach and educate you on your skin and help develop a treatment plan that includes professional treatments and homecare. Professionals refer to this as the 80/20 Rule. Eighty percent of your results are going to come from what you do every day to your skin. EIGHTY PERCENT – feels empowering right?! The remaining twenty percent of results will come from professional treatments. The better you take care of your skin at home the more your esthetician can do when providing professional treatments. Similar to working out with a trainer, when you train with them you learn new things, you feel great, and your body gets an amazing workout. What would happen if between your sessions you were not mindful of your nutrition and activity levels? The next time you see your trainer you are close to where you started and they will not be able to move forward on the workout plan. This would take much longer to see results. Same with your skincare regimen! If you are properly treating your skin at home, your esthetician will be able to provide more intensive treatments that will accelerate your skincare journey. Pro tip – allow yourself grace and remember that good things take time. #TrustTheProcess
