Skincare specialists cleanse and beautify the face and body to enhance a person’s appearance.
Skincare specialists usually work in salons and beauty and health spas, and some are self-employed. Although most work full time, many work evenings and weekends.
Skincare specialists must complete a state-approved cosmetology or esthetician program and then pass a state exam for licensure, which all states except Connecticut require.
The median hourly wage for skincare specialists was $17.55 in May 2020.
Employment of skincare specialists is projected to grow 17 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. The desire among many women and a growing number of men to reduce the effects of aging will result in employment growth. Good job opportunities are expected.
