Hey Rose,
It's fantastic to see your enthusiasm for beauty and skincare! To secure an internship in this exciting field, you'll need a well-crafted resume and a compelling cover letter.

Remember, internships can be either paid or unpaid, so don't limit your options. If you're currently in college, your counselor could be a great resource for finding internship programs in your area of interest.

One platform you might want to explore is careers.ulta.com, which offers numerous internships. Additionally, networking with peers in your field can open up a wealth of opportunities. Collaborate, ask questions, and you might discover internships you didn't even know existed.

Don't hesitate to reach out to dermatology offices either. They might have openings, or they could offer valuable feedback to guide you on your path. Stay passionate, stay curious, and you're sure to find the perfect opportunity.

Hello Rose,

Everyone in the response section have provided great suggestions.
I'd like to add on with my suggestion below.

If you were to apply for an internship/job in the beauty/skincare sector, they'll definitely want to look for relevant experiences related to that industry. If you found it challenging to land on any relevant experience, I'd actually suggest you to build your own portfolio. The portfolio can be an Instagram account, a YouTube channel, a blog, or your personal website. The platform that you chose to build your portfolio doesn't really matter, but truly matter is in the content. Include any relevant knowledge, experiences (formal/informal), or projects (formal/informal) on the platform. Some ideas for portfolio content are:
- personal reviews of beauty/skincare products
- research on the top skin concerns, potential causes for the concerns, suggestions/recommended products to solve the concerns (remember to include disclaimer)

Hello Rose,

Absolutely, you should definitely consider being a customer at a beauty or skincare salon a few times. While you're there, don't hesitate to express your passion and desire to work in this field. If you get the chance to chat with the owner, that's even better! Let them know just how much you love this line of work and that you're even willing to volunteer for a while to gain some hands-on experience. If they truly care about helping you, they'll definitely keep you on board and you'll quickly accumulate the experience you need.

Major companies like Clarins have representatives working in or visiting large department stores in Los Angeles. Engaging in conversation with these higher-ups in management could be incredibly beneficial. Additionally, a simple Google search for courses in beauty therapy could provide you with some valuable resources.

Now, let's delve a bit into the science behind skincare. Specifically, let's talk about vitamin E. This vitamin is composed of 8 natural isomers. Sometimes, even the first isomer, alpha-tocopherol, is incorrectly synthesized in labs, resulting in the inactive laevo-form along with the active dextro-form. The reason I'm bringing this up is because dextro-gamma-tocopherol, one of the 8 naturally occurring isomers, has shown promising results in skincare, particularly in the treatment of scars and burns. This isomer is found in unrefined fresh palm oil. It's a perfect example of how nature's chemistry often outperforms man's.

I hope you find this information helpful,
Jim.
