FROM THE EDITORS 10 ASCP Skin Deep Autumn 2022 Jen Anderson, Editor @j3nand3rson @ascpskincare @ascpskincare Follow us online! Hello. Goodbye. N ew beginnings can be tough. But they're also a time of excitement, wonder, and hope. As I begin my journey with ASCP Skin Deep as the new editor, I am lled with all of these emotions. Yes, it's daunting to ll the large shoes Mary Abel left behind, but I'm also excited for the future of this publication and the endless possibilities in front of me. I rmly believe this is how you should approach the fall season. Rather than letting it be a time of hunkering down and feeling sorrow about the end of summer, let this season be your opportunity to face the mysterious future head-on. We'll get you started with a few ideas. On page 58, you'll nd Lisa Bakewell's feature "What Sustainable Beauty Means for You and Your Business," where she unpacks the complicated issue of sustainability in the beauty industry and how we can look forward while repairing some of the damage done. To give your business a fresh start, I encourage checking out page 78 for Patti Biro's article "Pay Raise" on why, when, and how you should raise your service prices. It might be nerve-wracking at rst, but with Biro's advice, you'll be well-equipped to bring home the paycheck you deserve. As for your clients' skin? There is so much innovation to get excited about this fall, such as trendy ingredients like plant stem cells (page 44) and refreshing information on pH and its importance in skin care (page 68). From my new beginning at ASCP to your new adventures this season, may we all nd the thrill in the unknown. I 've never been great at saying goodbye, but just as the changing seasons are inevitable, so are changes in life. And so, I leave ASCP Skin Deep in the capable hands of Jen Anderson, who I know is excited to keep bringing you the news and articles you've come to expect from your member magazine. I'm so grateful for these past seven years, during which I've learned so much about the wonderful world of esthetics, met so many of you at trade shows and conferences, and—hopefully—helped every ASCP member move their career forward. I wish you every success. JEN ANDERSON MARY ABEL
