A facial cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin to promote clear well-hydrated skin.
The Basic Steps of a Facial:
A facial involves a few basic steps:
· exfoliation, usually while a steam vapor is directed at your face.
· facial massage to relax you and stimulate blood circulation
· extraction: where any blemishes, blackheads and/or whiteheads
· a mask targeted to your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature.)
· application of toners and protective creams
· advice on home skin care
Who Gives A Facial?
How Often Should I Get A Facial?
It varies from person to person. Ideally, you should get a facial every four to six weeks 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.
