Estheticians rejuvenate, exfoliate, depilate, moisturize, clean, eliminate various diseases in order to make the appearance of their clients fresher and healthier.
The founder of this national day was the company COSMEDIX. In 2016, she drew attention to the need to celebrate the talented and hardworking cosmetologists in the United States and create a separate holiday for estheticians.
The history of cosmetology dates back to ancient times, when people made cosmetic care products from improvised materials. For example, in South Africa, red stone powder was used for the body, which could be both a way to increase attractiveness in the opposite sex, and a hunting ritual. And in ancient Egypt, Cleopatra bathed in sour milk, which she used to exfoliate and whiten her skin.
In ancient Greece, one of the first sunscreens was ordinary olive oil. In addition, there is evidence that in Greece since antiquity there was depilation of the body with the help of pumice and special creams.
- in 840 BC in Ancient Greece, 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.
