As a beautician, you need to be able to treat all sorts of skin conditions and type of bodies. One of the best things about beauty school is the practical experience that you get, with models of all skin types and ages available for you to practise on. My teachers gave me so much practical advice, not only on learning about the practical side of applying treatments, but also in how to put my clients at ease and help them relax. As beautician, you learn all about people's personal lives. They confess issues in their personal life that they wouldn't discuss with anyone else.
