Facials, as you know help treat problems by toning and tightening the skin, treating dark patches and acne, cleansing, rehydrating and rejuvenating the skin. They also reduce blemishes, dry skin and wrinkles. So facials are the first step towards maintaining beautiful skin.
But in order to get that, you need a professionally trained beauty therapist who analyses your skin first and accordingly suggests you the best facial for your oily, dry or combination skin. Mentioned below are the different types of facial.
These types of facials are simple and basic. Their job is to cleanse, steam and massage. Naturally, they are least expensive. But yes a normal facial is tailor made for normal skin, not the one that is acne-prone.
This is one-step ahead of the normal facial. What make it special are the specially designed hypoallergenic creams that further moisturise the skin. It is meant for ladies who have sensitive skins. A special facial uses face packs that have special cleansing and rejuvenation abilities.
Teenagers and adults bugged down with acne have reason to smile. Acne facial is a formulation that uses glycolic acid exfoliation. This is followed by a warm vapour mist and deep pore extractions done manually and skin-calming anti-bacterial mask. Considering the acne-prone skin, this facial should be performed after every 2 weeks until the time acne begins to fade away.
This type of facial involves many steps – exfoliation, deep pore cleansing, lymphatic drainage massage, and a paraffin masque over a collagen sheet to give you the best hydrating effect. In this facial, liquid nutrients are given through ampoules or vials which lead to faster absorption of nutrients in the skin. Collagen Facial is good for all skin types.
