Safety glasses protect the eyes from a myriad of potential hazards at work, home, and outdoors. However, with the current pandemic of COVID-19, it is essential to protect eyes from various potential contaminants.
A few PPE supplies that are important for spa professionals are safety eyeglasses, face masks, and gloves. When estheticians come in contact with clients, they want to be protected. Safety eyeglasses are apart of PPE supplies. They provide skincare professionals, cosmetologists, nail technicians, and massage therapists the necessary eye protection against contaminants.

We strongly advise workers and their employees not to let their guard down when it comes to eye protection.”
Due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever to remember your eyes may potentially be compromised by germs and infection. Wearing appropriate eye protection is essential on a daily basis.
Spa professionals, nail technicians, and massage therapists work closely with clients and/or patients. Space is sometimes very limited and depending on the surroundings it may be quite limited due to the size of the room.
Not all estheticians and massage therapists are fortunate to have a large space to work in. When reviewing PPE Supplies, definitely add safety eyeglasses to the list for overall protection. It is important to remember regular prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contacts are not adequate safety protection.
Many professionals often fail to protect their eyes. We do not realize how much we rub our eyes or touch our faces.
It is difficult, hands find things to touch constantly. This is why it is important to maintain an inventory of gloves. Another part of being prepared with PPE supplies.
It is also important to remember once you lay hands on a client’s face, your gloves do not need to touch anything else. It is common for estheticians to forget one item or two on their product tray. Be mindful when you get up to go get that forgotten item you might touch a door or desk.
If you do touch other objects that may have been touched by others, the appropriate solution is to remove gloves, wash hands, and glove up again.
It is important to follow your state health regulations, CDC guidelines, and cosmetology board guidelines for proper health safety business etiquette. Keeping you and your clients safe and following new strict guidelines will make everyone comfortable and secure when visiting you for skin treatments.
