Basic skin Care Course
- Tutor is available to students
Almost everyone would like to have an eternally youthful appearance. Yet, many people still make skin care an after thought, subjecting their skin to a number of harmful products and activities, such as smoking and sun exposure.
It should be noted that our skin changes in response to the elements and activities it is exposed to. So it is critical that it receives proper nourishment and care in order to protect it against damage and diseases. Luckily, there are a lot of good skin treatments and therapies out there. It is just a matter of knowing how to sort through the options and administer the right one for your needs.
At the end of this course, students should be able to: (1) understand the biology of the skin; (2) do proper assessment of the skin; (3) determine the available methods, treatments and therapies to protect the skin and prevent breakdown; (4) understand what emollients are; (5) understand the psychological and social aspects of skin care; and (6) help patients make the most of their skin care treatment.
Learning more about our skin enables us to know how to best care for it, while also helping us identify the right products and treatments to get. If you have a passion for skin care, get more out of it, become an expert and perhaps start up your own business with this course.
