Are you starting a career as an esthetician or considering one? To help you develop your career, here is valuable advice from a professional esthetician who has created her own successful skin therapy business.
Fauzia Morgan is a licensed esthetician in Seattle, Washington. She graduated from the Euro Institute of Skin Care in 2005 and offers facials, resurfacing peels and body treatments through her own business, Sacred Skin Therapy.
“I still can’t really get over how lucky I am to do what I love for a living,” says Fauzia. “I give facials the way I would want to receive one. I love how good people feel after a facial with me.”
Fauzia offers the following advice for new estheticians and those considering a career in skin care.
1. Do what you love.

of Sacred Skin TherapyWhen it comes to choosing a school or creating a focus for your practice, Fauzia’s advice is consistent – be yourself and do what you love.
Her own approach to esthetics is holistic and rooted in her own experience. After struggling with chronic, severe acne from ages 13 to 26, Fauzia learned to heal her body from the inside out through acupuncture and dietary changes. Then, while working at an integrative pharmacy, she realized that she was able to help other people with their skin by recommending natural skin care products and making referrals to naturopaths, nutritionists, acupuncturists and herbalists. She decided to translate this talent into a career as an esthetician.
