National Aesthetician Day

National Aesthetician Day is celebrated in the United States every year on October 15th. This national day is dedicated to beauty professionals working in spas and medical clinics, who offer rejuvenation, exfoliation, depilation, moisturizing, cleansing, and the treatment of various diseases to make their clients look and feel fresher and healthier.


The celebration of National Aesthetician Day was founded by the company COSMEDIX in 2016 in order to recognize the talented and hardworking professionals in the cosmetology industry. The history of cosmetology dates back to ancient times, when people used improvised materials to make cosmetic care products. For example, in South Africa, they used red stone powder for the body as a way of increasing attractiveness and completing hunting rituals. In Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra bathed in sour milk to exfoliate and whiten her skin. Ancient Greeks used olive oil as sunscreen and there is evidence of body depilation with pumice and creams.

Fun facts

  • In Ancient Greece in 840 BC, eyelid makeup was done; a light complexion was fashionable, so it was bleached with milk.
  • In the 6th century in Japan, incense was made from herbs and ingredients like charcoal, lipstick was created from crushed petals, and the face was powdered with powder from crushed rice.
  • In 1399, an order was founded by the English king Henry IV, in which the privilege of members was bathing with soap in the bath.
