Technology and the Esthetician
I am truly fascinated with the impact technology has made on everyday life. I often think to myself, "What DID I do before cells phones were invented?" Many of us practice Esthetics because we have a desire to connect with other human beings using our hands and providing meaningful or at the very least, useful treatments and services. What about when the server is down or the newest software has a few "bugs"? Technology or the lack thereof can get in the way of our productivity.
There IS an APP for that! Here are a few apps Estheticians may find useful:
This app is a total Home/Business Automation solution. is designed to turn on or turn off computers, appliances and lighting in your home or business. Hmmmm, so you mean I can actually turn my wax pots off and on from an app on my phone? YES! I can turn the crock pot on in the middle of the day for dinner to be prepared by the time I get home? YES! Did I remember to turn off the curling iron/clothing iron/lights or close the garage door? No problem…the WEMO can make sure no appliance is left on in your home or business. Simply purchase a WeMo Switch for any electronic appliance, connect to your WiFi and route to the app on your phone. There are more advanced adapters for the home. Food is meant to be cooked…not wax! There is no excuse for keeping your wax pots on overnight with technology like this!
