JoElle Lee’s presentation, titled “5 Tools Every Esthetician Must Have to be Successful,” will give Face & Body Midwest attendees insight and tips for a successful new year.
Here, JoElle answers a few questions prior to this year’s conference and expo.
As a busy professional, how do you make time to take care of your own skin?
At least once a week, I reward myself with a mini-spa day at home. I also try, at least a couple times a week, to do a facial mask and/or facial scrub treatment before bedtime.
What are the ways that your inner health can affect your outer appearance?
A high fat, sugar and dairy diet can lead to early signs of aging as well as unwanted skin eruptions and dull skin. Try to maintain a diet that consists mostly of high protein, fruits, vegetables and water. Protein is great at fighting fine lines and wrinkles, while the water and antioxidants will help ward of harmful toxins and leave your skin radiant and glowing.
How were you able to take your career to the next level?
My motto: ‘Make a decision, take action and follow through.’ My career has taken many twists and turns but through it all, I have stayed focused on the path I want to follow and kept up the perseverance and stamina to see my dreams and goals materialize.
Any skincare and beauty must-haves or any favorite skincare treatments?
I must have a skincare brush. I just love facial brushes for that extra exfoliation maintenance. As of yet, I have not come across a better treatment than a good old fashion chemical peel for a quick overall improvement of the skin’s appearance. I don’t think I will ever give up my chemical peel regimen. Definitely a must have.
Face & Body Midwest is an annual conference and expo held for spa, skin care and wellness professionals.
