Before your facial starts, be sure to speak to your Beauty Therapist about any concerns you may have, from dry skin to products or ingredients that you’ve had bad reactions to in the past. Tell her if you have allergies and what your current skincare regimen is, including any medications you take (whether internally or applied to the skin) that might cause a reaction or increase your skin’s sensitivity. She will also be able to choose appropriate products for your skin type by doing an analysis at the beginning of your treatment using a magnifying lamp. Additionally, she can educate you on which products to use (and not use) at home that will benefit your needs and concerns.
BENEFITS OF FACIALS
You can expect even a basic facial treatment to deliver these rewards:
A DEEP CLEANSE: your Therapist will begin with an overall cleansing of the skin on your face, neck, and décolletage.
A GLOWING APPEARANCE: Exfoliation is essential to preparing the skin. Whether it’s done with a gentle, grainy scrub or a chemical peel (such as salicylic acid or a fruit enzyme), exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal healthier, more radiant skin underneath. This step, also enables any serums or moisturizers applied later to penetrate the skin more effectively.
SOFTER, SMOOTHER SKIN: A facial should not only help your complexion look better, but it should feel better too. Products applied during your treatment, like serums, moisturizers and masks—and, in particular, collagen masks—help hydrate your skin, making it appear plump and smooth.
Not only will your skin benefit from regular Facials but you will too. Always make time for yourself.
