ICYMI, Youth To The People recently launched Pros To The People, an exciting new initiative in partnership with seven ultra-talented licensed estheticians across the U.S. and Canada, all of whom will serve as yet another amazing resource to the YTTP community. You’ll get to know these experts on a personal level as they share their diverse stories and how they got to where they are today. That, and they’ll of course be dropping an avalanche of skincare knowledge and sharing their own unique approaches to all things skin.
Expect to see (and learn!) a ton from these talented souls in the coming months. In the meantime, get to know each estie via Meet The People. Without further ado…
The Pro: Scout Garbaczewski
The Place: TikTok + Instagram
Take a quick through Scout Garbaczewski’s TikTok or Instagram—where she’s affectionately known as @theglowscout—and you’ll immediately see that her obsession with (and immense knowledge of) skincare is very real. How did Scout get into skin to begin with, though?
“I had always been into beauty from a young age, but my interest in skincare and curating routines for individuals really developed when I worked at LUSH Cosmetics,” she says. “It was my favorite thing when people would come in looking for skincare help.”
It was Scout’s job to ask customers questions about their skin in order to get to know their routines and goals, and ultimately how she could help them achieve those goals. She relished every minute of it.
“It was awesome being able to help solve the puzzle,” she says. “It allowed me to get really good at recommending products.”
After realizing her passion for skincare and helping people achieve their complexion objectives, Scout felt the need to dive even deeper into the world of skin.
“Once I was at LUSH for a while I wanted to know more and so I enrolled in esthetics school,” she recalls. To make a long story short, it ended up being one of the best decisions she ever made.
“I love helping people relax and I love when I’m educating clients and they have a light bulb moment where something that wasn’t clicking regarding skincare makes sense,” says Scout. “And I love helping people reach their personal skincare goals and making them feel comfortable in their skin.”
Scout was ultra-psyched to become a YTTP Pro because she’s been a fan and avid user of the brand herself for years.
“I was luckily following their socials when they posted about the esthetician opportunity,” she says. “The skincare community on Instagram was really sweet and kept reposting and tagging estheticians on the original post so no estie would miss it!”
And that, folks, is Scout’s story. Now that you have the lowdown on how she fostered a career in skincare, here are some fun facts you should know—including her favorite YTTP product of all time and her personal skincare philosophy.
Skin type: “Definitely dry!”
Must-have YTTP product: “My favorite YTTP product is the Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist.”
Skincare philosophy: “Always treat the skin barrier first!”
Her skin inspiration: “My skin/beauty inspiration is other estheticians. As an esthetician, I love getting facials from and learning from other esties. It helps you so much in developing your skills, knowledge, and techniques as an esthetician.”
