A healthy lifestyle management is now required by most, if not all medical aid organisations. Not all people enjoy organized exercise, but the same stress release and improvement of self-esteem may be obtained through regular, effective skin and body-care treatments.

Health and Skincare competency contributes to employment opportunities in the cosmetic industry – one of the largest retail/commercial industries in both relatively developed and developing countries. There is an ever-increasing need for health and skin care therapists in previously disadvantaged communities; thus it is essential to ensure quality qualifications on the NQF.
