Esthetic news... What's new in the industry today

     The Esthetic world is constantly changing and it can be somewhat difficult to keep up with the latest ingredient, product, buzz word, treatment, etc. It is especially difficult for us "newbies" that really don't know where to turn or what is the best source of information as there is a plethora out there.  I felt this group would be a great place where other Estheticians could share information about what they heard or interesting articles they read as some of us may have missed it.       …See More

A farewell!

For those of you who have been following ASCP on social media for a while, you know that I’m the one who manages all of the ABMP social media accounts. Today is my last day here at ASCP after almost 6 years with the association. I’m going on to pursue a great opportunity that will allow me much more time to do all the things I love—rock and ice climbing, skiing, playing cello, cooking, reading—and while I’m very excited for this change in my life, I’m also sad to leave the people I work with…See More
