Esthetician or Aesthetician? Pt. 6

Okay, I know, I know, I know, you are SOooooooooooo sick of hearing about this. BUT I could REALLY use your votes for this photo contest!! Seriously, I can't afford to buy clothes that I desperately need for school and if I win- I will receive a gift card to one of the amazing sponsored stores! Kinda need that. haha! So please, if you have a few minutes here's what you do:

GO HERE
-if it takes you just to the Taylor Andrew's website then look at the left sidebar and click "hunger games photo contest"
-then follow all the steps including "allow app" and "like us to get started now"
-then scroll to my picture if it doesn't immediately pop up (same one that is on MY left sidebar <---) and click "VOTE!" :D

I will love you foreeeeeeeeeeeeverrrrrrrrrrrr!

Ok, on to what you really came here for...

I was asked what kind of treatment I would recommend to those with dry skin. My answer- a very hydrating facial. So when they do your skin analysis tell them your concerns with dryness and make sure they pick masks, moisturizers, etc that is going to really hydrate your skin. Also they could add in a Galvanic treatment on the Positive setting because that's going to Push the product into the skin. :)

This week we have been learning about nail disorders... let me tell you, it hasn't been pretty. :P Interesting and disgusting. haha! Here are some nail care tips for you:

Make sure you regularly push back your cuticles. Otherwise they could grow over your entire nail which is a condition called Pterygium... Funny story time!

So I had my first client on Saturday (a week ago). It was a guy. All the girls thought he was so hot but no one would take him, so I did. He wanted a pedicure. (he had a toe that had Pterycium... that's how this story connects to that info above... haha!) He was very nice and all the girls wanted me to get his number. I wasn't going to do that. Especially after this conversation:

Him: "You have a very nice phone voice."
Me: "A phone voice?"
Him: "Ya, its soft and sweet. It would be nice to talk to you on the phone."
Me: "Oh... ha... I've never heard that before..."

Ya mister, not gonna happen.

Moving on...
Have you ever removed your nail polished and been shocked to see that your nails look yellow? Or some other color? Well, it's most likely just caused by your nail polish. Nothing to worry about. :) It's called- Discolored Nails. Original.

Do your nails ever split, peel (your nail is made of layers and sometimes they'll peel), or have lengthwise ridges? Well that is usually caused by- injury to the fingers, excessive use of cuticle solvents, nail polish removers, and careless, rough filing. You can fix it by softening the nails with a reconditioning treatment and discontinuing use of harsh soaps, polish removers, and improper filing.

The proper way to file your nails is in one direction. So- left to right, right to left, or outside to inside and meeting in the middle. Be sure to regularly buff your nails as well. I LOVE those filers with 4 sides. Great for buffing and making them shine!

Now, I could get into some serious disorders... Like (how it gets to these points... I have no idea)-

Onychogryposis
Onychonycosisvia
or Mold

But I wont.
haha! Hope you didn't loose your appetite. Just realized, that's probably why I haven't had a very large appetite this week. haha!

Have a great day and don't forget to VOTE!!

Thanks for the little tidbit for us dry-skinned folks! I appreciate your taking information "requests" : ]

And as for the dude. Honestly, that sounds like something I would say (lol) and I don't really count myself among the creepers of this world so maybe he was making a quirky observation like I would. Either way, it's kind of funny : ]
