Skin Care Online Schools
By Michael Bustamante

Online skin care schools offer courses for working adults to change a career or to advance an existing career. Skin care technicians (also known as Estheticians) are in demand in beauty salons, spas, and private practices.

Online distance learning skin care courses focus on the study of all aspects of skin; skin structure and natural health; and on skin conditions, treatments, and care. Online skin care programs teach basic biology, cellular components of skin, normal skin and adjoining systems, common dermatologic disorders (birth marks, acne, discoloration), skin diseases, and general routine components of good skin care.

Online courses in skin care may include discussions of skin layers (epidermis and dermis), immunology, skin infections, pigmentation, healing, hair and nails, cosmetics and beauty, skin biology, skin tumors, and more.

Online skin care schools offering programs of study can include tanning and dangers of tanning; camouflage of skin imperfections; aging and conditions of aging; diseases and treatments; and tips for seasonal skin treatment for healthy skin.

Generally, hands-on experience in laboratory course(s) may be required for certification or a degree in this field of study. Be sure to inquire whether certification or a degree in skin care is an option at your school of choice, and whether or not hands-on experience is a requirement for the particular skin care program of study.
