Looking good, they say, is good business. In the words of Okiemute Tonye Pela, the Chief Executive Officer of Pels International, a foremost skincare company with an enviable track record, skincare should be the business of everyone.
He said cosmetology has the ability to make a difference in people’s lives.
“It finds a way of improving the features of the face and skin, therefore improving the image of that person. This can change lives because in the real world, image matters. It can stop people from getting jobs or meeting that special someone in their life for the first time. The impact of beauty products in a person’s appearance and facial features can have a profound effect on that person’s life. Hence, cosmetology enhances true beauty,” he said.
Speaking further on beauty and skincare, he added. “Skincare is a very broad practice, we have the product formulators, medical aestheticians, dermatologists etc. Skincare is the art of taking proper care of your skin, paying attention and making sure to have a clean, clear, youthful and elastic skin that glows. And it’s highly advisable to deal with an experienced specialist as your skin is your largest organ. Consultation with your aesthetician is also required to get the most appropriate result.
He also averred that skincare is important regardless of age and sex.
“Skincare is for everyone because men also have skin problems. For instance, ingrown hairs, razor bumps, rashes and even acne. Most men pay less attention to themselves and this is wrong. Beauty is an individual’s physical attributes and perhaps outlook. It can be body, shape or facial structure that pleases the sight. Style can be described as an individual’s personality, characteristic traits or mannerism, or perhaps an individual’s personal perspective towards various aspects of life, maybe fashion, beauty and the role of skincare is to improve your beauty standards,” he said.
