Choosing CIDESCO

August 13, 2013

One of 8 CIDESCO Certified Schools in the U.S.

Like many other future estheticians, I want to own my own business some day. When the day comes for me to open the doors of my spa, I want to know the ins and outs of every service I offer and be able to provide support for my employees in every aspect of their own practices.

I knew AVEDA would provide me with an excellent education, especially in a beauty-savvy city like San Francisco; and my research into Cinta AVEDA revealed an exciting and different educational option: CIDESCO, short for Comité Internacional D’Esthétique et de Cosmétologie. 

CIDESCO is an internationally recognized certification in beauty therapy. This program is essentially a continuation of the Esthiology program where you can learn advanced versions of all the subject matter covered in Esthiology, plus much more.

You will likely start with a 10-week massage course taught by educator Christy. With 15+ years of experience in massage and skin care, she can teach you almost anything you want to know about massage, including special modalities like pre-natal technique and Thai massage.

Educator Kris covers machines like the galvanic, which uses electrical current to penetrate beneficial products further into the skin and the high frequency, which creates ozone gas on the skin’s surface to help manage the overgrowth of p. bacteria, which is a contributing factor to acne.

Maria can round out your CIDESCO education by divulging her make-up success tips, in-depth product knowledge and more, all collected over more than 30 years in the industry.

Any esthetician can benefit from the advanced topics that are covered in this specialized program, but if you’re thinking about following an entrepreneurial route, it’s practically a must.

Outer Peace Acne Relief

Ever since I was in high school I have dealt with acne.  I have tried everything for it, from Neutrogena, Clean and Clear and even a doctor prescribe benzoyl peroxide topical cream. Finally I decided to be an esthetician and came across Cinta Aveda Institute. I had never used Aveda products, so when I saw that they had an acne line (Outer Peace Acne Relief) and an acne facial I was really excited.  After trying both of those combinations together my skin has been better than ever and healthier too. I have learned that there is no cure for acne but it can be treated.

 

Outer Peace Acne Relief Product Descriptions:

  1. Cleanser : Cleans deep into pores—dissolving oil, makeup and other impurities—without irritation or over drying skin
  2. Acne Pads: Cleanses, exfoliates, unclogs pores—to help wipe out blackheads and prevent new breakouts.
  3. Acne spot relief: Eliminate breakouts—and the bacteria that lead to more—while reducing redness and swelling. Ideal when extra help is called for.
  4. Lotion: Helps clear blemishes—and keep oil under control—while shrinking the look of pores. Balances moisture, so skin’s not over dry or shiny.

My results:

  • I follow this 4-step skin care regimen once in the morning and once at night. It doesn’t dry my skin at all. It leaves it smooth and feeling refreshed. I must say I truly love these products and so does my skin. If you have dealt with acne and nothing is working I would definitely try this line.

Tip:

  • like with all skin care regimens you must follow a strict regimen to get the best results. It might be a little more expensive than drugstores acne regimens but its worth the price.
