Facials are a great addition to your skincare routine and can provide you with a clear and well-hydrated complexion, along with a more youthful appearance. They are incredibly popular and a lot of people enjoy them because facials are relaxing and can improve your skin.
If you’re not familiar with the process, it is natural to wonder what facials actually do and it is important to know that they are designed to do more than just help you relax. Facials are essentially customized treatments for the face and neck that can help treat and prevent a number of problems. A smooth and glowing complexion is only part of the equation and facials can also remove dead skin cells, boost the production of collagen, improve the appearance of fine lines and clear away pores. Facials can also help with blemishes and will moisturize and hydrate your skin as well. The goal is to provide you with healthier and younger-looking skin and facials are known to produce results.
One of the most important aspects of a facial is that they are done by a professional esthetician at a dermatologist’s office or spa. Only a certified individual should complete your facial; otherwise, you run the risk of damaging your skin. It’s also important that you determine the type of facial that would be most beneficial to you as there are different types. You can choose from deep cleansing facials, acne prevention facials, anti-ageing facials, rejuvenation facials, chemical peels, vampire facials and microdermabrasion, just to name a few. Brightening and rejuvenation facials are very popular during the summer months.
Harsh exfoliating products should not be used four days before your treatment and you should know all of the products you are currently using so that you can discuss them and determine whether or not they are contributing to your skin concerns. If you have a big event like a wedding or a work function, you should not get a facial the night before just in case you experience side effects. Post-treatment breakouts and irritation can occur as can redness and blemishes. Booking a facial at least a few days before your event is ideal because your skin will look flawless and you will be able to see the full results.
Generally, facials last about 60 minutes, although this will vary based on your skin type and type of facial you want. Different tools will be used depending on the facial you are having done and the esthetician will also provide you with information regarding your skin type and the different ways you can maintain a proper home care routine. This knowledge will allow you to take better care of your skin to maintain its healthy glow between your facial treatments.
