Whether you’re a hairdresser, esthetician or massage tech, recommending products is key to your professionalism as well as your income—and, could be your client’s first line of defense against sun damage.
Dr. Ahmed Abdulla, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of Lexli skin care, provides these sun care tips you can pass onto your clients: -- The difference between SPF 15 and SPF 100 is only 4 percent added protection. Pay less attention to the SPF and more attention to proper application. Sunscreen should be applied 15 minutes before venturing outdoors. -- Clients recently treated by dermabrasion, laser resurfacing or chemical peels are at increased risk of burn or skin damage following sun exposure. Sunscreen for these individuals must be consistent. -- Increased humidity makes skin feel less dry, but don’t be fooled. Use of a moisturizer is required even in the summer.
With the proliferation of blow-dry bars and the trend toward red-carpet looks for every woman, you might wonder what it takes to be a true blow dry and style pro, making clients look fabulous all day long.
