A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. This special treatment cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion.
How the treatment works:
Step 1: Before a facial treatment you will be asked about your skin concerns, diet, how much water you drink, drugs and supplements you take and product you are currently using.
Step 2: At this point, your treatment starts with a cleansing: your hair may be wrapped in a towel or headband if you ask so and the therapist will proceed to a preliminary cleanse using cotton pads, wipes or sponges. Your skin will be deeply examined to determine your basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and if you have any relevant skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, ageing, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.). This assessment will help the therapist to choose the appropriate products and treatments
Step 3: Next step is the exfoliation of your skin using a mechanical exfoliant with gritty texture that rubs away the surface dead skin cells. If you require so, the therapist will practice the extraction, the removal of blackedheads, whiteheads and other impurities.
Step 4: A gentle and relaxing massage will follow. It stimulates the skin and facial muscles acting as light lymphodrainage.
Step 5: After the massage, a facial mask will be applied targeting your skin type and condition. During the time the mask will stay on your skin, you may receive a neck and/or hands massage helping you to relax.
Step 6: The treatment ends with the removal of the mask, application of toner, eyes serums, moisturisers.
How often should I get a facial?
You should ideally have a facial every four weeks because this is how long it takes for the skin to regenerate. A perfect way to treat your skin would be to have at least four facial a year, at any season changes.
