While you’re looking after your skin by eating healthy foods, staying out of the sun as much as possible and moisturizing daily, remember to book in a regular facial. It’s an important part of your complexion perfection.
Getting a facial done by a professional allows the aesthetician to gauge the state of your skin when it’s not covered in makeup so that the best treatment can be given depending on your needs. Think of facials as skin treatments that figure out your problem areas and then fix them. For instance, if your skin suffers from areas of discoloration, you can have a facial that will help to brighten up your skin; on the other hand, if your skin has a tendency to become very dry, a facial that helps it lock in moisture will be recommended.
There are various types of facials with different benefits available to you. Some of the best facials include:
Suitable for all types of skin, an anti-aging facial contains ingredients that boost the youthfulness of your skin, such as antioxidants that help to regenerate skin and make it look fresher. Getting anti-aging facials before your skin starts showing signs of wear and tear is a great way to slow down time’s effect on your skin.
Oxygenated facials work well for preventing or treating aging skin because they protect the skin against pollution that can be damaging, while giving it extra radiance. During an oxygenated facial, pressurised oxygen is applied to skin to strengthen it against factors such as pollution and free radicals, also helping serums that are applied to the skin to get absorbed faster.
A glycolic peel can also be great for tackling signs of aging skin because it makes use of glycolic acid. This evens out your skin tone and exfoliates it in the process, which definitely makes skin look years younger.
This kind of facial cleanses the skin but is mainly focused on exfoliation, such as with the use of a face scrub, so that the skin is encouraged to produce new skin cells. This gives you that refreshed and glowing appearance.
The European facial is a great treatment for acne-prone skin because it can involve the extraction of blackheads and whiteheads should these be required. This can be done with a facial peel or vacuum device, for instance.
Pampering comes into the mix with the use of a face mask and a massage for your neck, shoulders and even your hands if you like. This brings a calming effect to the facial so that you can relax and unwind after which your skin will be treated with a moisturizer to keep it smooth.
Beauty in a Flash
Sometimes a little pick-me-up is just what your skin needs and the flash facial helps to brighten your skin fast, thanks to its Vitamin C content. Vitamin C works to make your skin glow because it has both anti-pigmentation and antioxidant properties. The result is a lighter, even skin tone that fights off free radicals and looks healthy. The flash facial is a must to have before a special occasion when you want your skin to look its best.
Vegetable Peel Facials
Vegetable peel facials are treatments that are especially beneficial if your skin has suffered from sun damage. Plant and vegetable extracts help to protect and repair the skin as they often contain many antioxidants and vitamins to improve skin’s appearance and health. It’s no wonder they’re finding their way into your skincare treatments, offering you a great way to achieve naturally-based skin care.
If you suffer from pigmentation that you desperately wish to erase, an intensive anti-pigmentation facial can help your skin recover from dark spots or discoloration. Some of these facials contain natural ingredients such as white tea and chamomile to treat your dark spots while nourishing the skin.
Chamomile has many benefits for skin that complement its natural skin bleaching properties. It moisturizes the skin while increasing its healing, making it an effective treatment for sunburns as well as various skin irritations.
White tea could be just as powerful as green tea, perhaps even more so! This is because it has antioxidants to neutralize free radicals and it prevents metalloproteinases (MMPs), enzymes that destroy important proteins of the skin such as elastin.
