When you begin a regular pattern of facials you'll soon notice healthier skin that is brighter, softer and skin that is less prone to breakouts. However, if you are not readily convince then you either had a bad experience or have not maintained a regular routine. Here is what to expect from a facial. The Spa Facial
The spa facial is designed to not only give you results but its also meant to relax you. You might think that relaxing is just a nicety but combined with skincare elements it adds a punch that is necessary to beautiful skin.
Have you ever seen anyone that is stressed, how does their skin look? Cleansing The Skin
The first step to any facial is to cleanse the skin. This step removes surface impurities, makeup and dirt. This steps preps the skin for all other steps. Cleansing is very important specially if you live in a city and are exposed to pollution at every turn. Exfoliation
Once the skin is prepared the aesthetician, a professional trained in skincare, will get underway a series of steps having to do with exfoliation. Exfoliation softens dry, dead, dull skin and reveals fresh new skin. When regularly done at home you'll see brighter, healthier skin. This is because skin that is properly and frequently exfoliated activates the skin, giving you softer, more even tone skin. This step when paired with nightly face wash is the key in reducing or eliminating breakouts completely. Steam Is Used
In the recent Spring/Summer issue of New Beauty I was quoted in regards the use of steam in facials. "A steam-emitting machine is positioned closed to the skin to "open up" pores and soften oil that has hardened within them. "Steam prepares the skin for extractions," says celebrity aesthetician Joanna Vargas. "But some skin types are too sensitive for it. And if not properly done, it can cause extreme redness and even burn the skin." Facial Massage
Facial massage are done through out the facial. This serves two purposes aside from the stress reliving aspect of it which is fantastic. A facial massage will increase circulation and trigger the lymphatic system. Increased circulation brings oxygen and nutrients to the skin. The lymphatic system does not have its own pump and therefore relies on outside stimulation like exercise to kick in gear. It eliminates waste and toxins from the body. As a skincare professional I have made it my business to know what is the theory and science behind each step of a facial. This has made it easy for me to train my licensed aesthetician and hone each step of the facial for greater results.
