What is a “facial” treatment?
A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion and can help your skin look younger. You also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.
What are the steps of a facial?
The steps depend on the skin type, skin problem and type of the facial. General steps are:
- Consultation & skin analysis
- Steaming (depending on the skin type)
- Exfoliation (mechanical or chemical)
- Extraction (if needed)
- Facial massage using oil or serum
- Facial mask
- Final application
- Home care
What are the benefits of facial treatments?
The pampering experience of a beautifying facial can provide multiple health and beauty benefits.
A regular facial is ideal for maintaining good skin health and can leave you with a radiant complexion. There are many types of facials to choose from. For example, some aid skin elasticity, preventing sagging, wrinkles and other ageing signs, while others help to combat dry skin ailments or acne.
Even the lucky few of you with perfect skin will enjoy the indulgent pleasure of a facial, which utilizes gentle massage techniques. Facial massages are not only relaxing; they also boost circulation and blood flow, helping the skin on your face to self-heal while re-energizing your mind.
How often is best to get a Facial?
It varies from person to person. Ideally, get a facial monthly because that’s how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes. You may need it more frequently if you are trying to clear up a case of acne, especially at the beginning. Otherwise, once a month is plenty. But, you can overdo it, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Are skin breakouts common after undergoing a facial?
Some people report the appearance of new spots within 48 hours after a facial. This can be a fairly common reaction – it simply indicates your skin is detoxifying itself, and a glowing complexion should soon follow. While spots are unlikely, you may want to schedule your facial a minimum of four to five days before any important event in order to allow your skin plenty of time to recover.
