Being in esthetics school is teaching me way more than just using products on skin and hair. It’s teaching me about contact. There are so many career options where human touch is a sensitive matter, or prohibited at all times. But, being a professional esthetician is all about being close and personal with other people. It’s a raw but pure engagement between two people. One seeking help and one providing the solution.
I love that! This is just one reason why this path has chose me. I love personal time with people. I’m always that friend that doesn’t understand personal space, haha. I always want cuddle and talk and help and give and learn. It’s a bonus that it is in this industry!
Here are some things that I have learned lately 🙂
- Cell are the basic unit of all things, bacteria, plants and humans.There are TRILLIONS of cells in our bodies, and they are all different shapes and sizes.
- Mitosis is the process of cell division. Without mitosis, our cells would never replenish themselves and we would always be tired and injured.
- Drinking plenty of water, consuming healthy foods, and getting some fresh air are perfect conditions for your cells to stay ahead of the game!
- WE have four types of tissue in our bodies.
- Connective- Tissue that holds us together by connecting to bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and adipose (fat).
- Epithelial- Tissue that protects our body’s surfaces like skin for the whole body, the linking of our heart, glands, and digestive and respiratory.
- Muscle- Contracts and moves the various parts of the body.
- Nerve- This is our messenger tissue. Message for our bodies from our brain.
- We have eleven body systems!
- Skeletal- Bones, moveable and immoveable joints.
- Muscular- covers, shapes and supports skeletal tissues.
- Nervous- Carries messages from the brain to the body. Controls ALL of the body.
- Circulatory- Controls the blood flow.
- Lymphatic/ Immune- Protecting the body from getting sick by producing an army for the body.
- Endocrine- Glands assisting in growth, hormones and sexual activities.
- Digestive- Changing the food into what your body needs and doesn’t need. (Mouth, stomach, intestines, salivary glands, and gastric glands)
- Excretory- Eliminates waste in the body through the kidneys, liver, skin, intestines and lungs.
- Respiratory- Sending oxygen to the brain while eliminating carbon dioxide in the body. Lungs and air passages.
- Integumentary- Skin! Protecting the inside of our bodies and helping the body have a stable temperature through our skin, organs, oil glands, sweat glands, sensory receptors, hair and nails.
- Reproductive- Different for the female and male sex. Perpetuating our race.
