What is a Facial?

Many people think of a facial as a spa treatment you get when you’re on vacation. Facials are a great way to help you achieve a clear complexion and a nice glow. Therefore, you don’t have to be on vacation to benefit from a facial.

Your facial skin is being subjected to the elements such as the sun and maybe even smoke or pollution. Therefore, it is important for a skin care specialist or aesthetician to analyze your skin to ensure they choose the best ingredients that help you achieve a clear complexion and a nice glow. In fact, most aestheticians will evaluate your skin using a magnifying lamp. They will also ask you for your goals for your skin and make a recommendation for skincare products and treatments to help you reach those goals.

Most facials generally consist of cleansing, exfoliation, steam treatment, massage and mask. Facials can improve the texture, feel and look of your skin and your face will have a smooth refreshed healthy glow. It can be a great preventative treatment for wrinkles. Facials can last from 30 minutes to one hour depending on the type of facial.

Your aesthetician will design facials to the your special needs. Regular monthly facials are recommended to ensure best results. Ensure you follow a skincare regime that includes proper sun protection at home. This is an important step in facial care.

Facials were once considered luxury only for the wealthy but now they are considered as important as going to your doctor.
