Compassionate Category

Learn more about the Compassionate category of The Skin Games.


We want to highlight you and your efforts. The effect can ripple throughout our community, and across our country, inspiring dozens of estheticians to make a difference! SO…. are YOU ready to be a Game Changing Esthetician? To help a person may not necessarily change the world but it will change the world for that person.


What is the Compassionate Category?

The Skin Games is looking for Beauty Professionals who are making a difference. The Compassionate Category helps to bring awareness to those in our industry who through their leadership are helping their communities and the world as a whole. It is well known that people are much more likely to perform Acts of Compassion when they have witnessed others doing so.

The Skin Games- Compassionate Category is presenting the opportunity to highlight all the great things you and/or your business are doing to make the world a better place. This year we have expanded the Compassionate Category so that the prize money will go directly to those whose Acts of Compassion are changing lives, support them to do more of the good they already do.

How do I compete in the Compassionate Category?

1. Submit a video no more than five minutes in length showing how your Acts of Compassion help to create a better world.
