Back to the Monday morning theory assessment…argh! This week we covered off assessment on Massage – such an awesome module, one of my favourites of the course so far. Salon Day is in full swing again so if you are interested in a beauty treatment check out our menu and book an appointment on Ph: 5309 6635.
We quickly moved onto our next module on skin therapies framework. This focuses on providing us an understanding of the growth and development of the skin, genetic factors, wound healing, ageing, disorders, skin chemicals, and diseases V disorders.
Our next module was on pigmentation disorders which cause the skin to appear lighter or darker, blotchy or discoloured. We learnt the pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin – the same pigment that creates hair, skin, and eye colour. Melanin also protects the body by absorbing ultraviolet light. This was such an interesting module which we delved into further by distinguishing the difference between hypo and hyper pigmentation. I found that by understanding a client’s skin we can better service their beauty requirements with a tailored treatment.
Until next week…
