In 2017, the cost of a manicure or pedicure can be around $150.
That’s a lot of money to be making, but it’s the kind of money that can be put toward education, says Katie Miller, founder of the nonprofit Beauty Revolution Project, which promotes healthful beauty products.
In addition to educating consumers about the health benefits of beauty products, Miller says, the program is also focusing on how to spend money on cosmetics, makeup and skincare.
She’s been working to get people interested in making the effort to invest in their own health, even though it can take a long time.
“If you want to be a part of this, you have to invest now,” she says.
“And the more people that you have, the sooner you can get there.”
