In today’s cosmetic land of facial products and non-invasive facial rejuvenation the appeal of an “old-fashioned” facial begins to fade. For whatever reason the wow factor has diminished and the facial has become greatly misunderstood. Over time, we have forgotten the importance of the skin’s functions and the basic yet beneficial steps we can take to achieve healthy skin. Don’t underestimate the power of a great facial. Each step in a facial plays an intricate part in the overall benefits it can have.
- Cleansing: Deeper cleanse than you get at home, because we as estheticians are taking our time and gently massaging while cleansing away excess dirt and oils.
- Exfoliation: Is another important step in a deep cleanse, by buffing off dead skin cells that have been left behind.
- Extraction: This process literally removes oil (sebum), dirt, sweat and bacteria that’s been sitting in your pores making them larger and larger, all that is removed.
Then to the fun stuff, a relaxing massage. Massage not only feels good but it increases blood flow which promotes healing and gives your skin a healthy glow. The mask also is an important step in the facial process. A mask acts as a treatment within the facial which can treat problematic skin issues such as: redness, acne/congestion, dehydration, and laxity. And finally after we have cleansed the skin, exfoliated, extracted and treated skin issues we can also apply other products such as serums and moisturizers to continue to treat a specific problem. After a facial your skin is able to absorb the products you apply at home better because all the barriers have been removed allowing your products to be more effective such as Super 3 booster, Intense Defense Serum, Vitamin C+E, Lytic and even your Renewal Facial products. Your skin will also look and feel great similar to how your teeth feel after leaving the dentist. Facials are something that can be beneficial to anyone once a month or once every three months, whatever fits your schedule best.
