How to Create an Award-Winning Case Study


Welcome to my blog series designed to help you maximize your chances of success in The Skin Games competition. As the reigning Esthetician of the Year, I’m honored to share my tips and insights with you. Let’s kick off our journey to victory with an essential step: reading the rules!

Thoroughly Read the Rules and Guidelines:

The Skin Games has established rules and guidelines to ensure fair competition and a level playing field for all participants. I’m not saying you must print out the rules and bust out the ole highlighter like I did, but It’s crucial that you take the time to thoroughly read and understand these rules before starting your case studies.

Here’s why:

Compliance: By familiarizing yourself with the rules, you ensure that your entry meets all the necessary criteria and requirements. This includes aspects such as submission deadlines, eligibility criteria, and the specific categories or challenges you’re interested in.

Avoid Disqualification: Failure to adhere to the rules could lead to disqualification. Don’t let a simple oversight or misunderstanding jeopardize your chance of being recognized for your talent and hard work. Reading and understanding the rules will help you avoid any unintentional mistakes.

Strategic Planning: Understanding the rules helps you strategize your approach to the competition. It allows you to align your treatments, techniques, and goals with the judging criteria and specific categories. This strategic planning will give you a competitive edge and help you present your best work.

Take Note of Specific Requirements:

Within the rules, you’ll find specific requirements and guidelines for each category or challenge. The judges are using a point system, so pay close attention to these details as they can make a significant difference in how your work is evaluated. Some aspects to consider include:

Treatment Parameters: Understand the specific parameters for each treatment or service you provide. This may include the duration, techniques, products, or tools allowed. Adhering to these guidelines ensures fairness and consistency in judging.

Documentation and Photography: The Skin Games requires before-and-after photos, eight videos, and written documentation. Capturing clear and detailed evidence of your work is essential to showcase your skills effectively.

Seek Clarification:

If you have any doubts or questions about the rules, don’t hesitate to seek clarification. The Skin Games team is here to assist you and provide the necessary guidance. Utilize their resources and reach out for support if needed. Remember, clarity is key to ensure you’re on the right track.

By starting your Skin Games journey with a thorough understanding of the rules and guidelines, you set a solid foundation for success. It demonstrates your professionalism, attention to detail, and commitment to the competition.
