Facials can do wonders for your skin. As a crucial element of your beauty regimen, they gently exfoliate dead skin cells and nourish your skin, leaving it soft and supple. As the largest organ in our bodies, it protects our internal tissues and regulates body temperature. Our skin is also a transfer point for minerals and toxins — it can easily absorb substances applied to it.
This is why we should make sure that we only use products with natural, gentle ingredients on our skin. Facials often use skin-safe ingredients such as essential oils, minerals, and plant waters, which are also known as hydrosols. They soothe, cleanse, and nourish the skin encouraging a healthy, radiant complexion.
There are many different types of facials available today. Each one is unique and offers many benefits.
Cleansing and Exfoliation
Also known as the “basic cleanup”, cleansing and exfoliating facials clears the skin of buildup, such as blackheads and whiteheads. You start by cleansing oils and dirt from the surface of your skin, followed by an exfoliant, which scrubs away dead skin and deep seated dirt. After exfoliation, the face is washed and moisturized with an emollient cream. The basic cleanup removes dirt and blackheads and reduces tanning, giving you a glowing complexion.
Steam and Massage
Steam massage facials, or “normal facials” start by steaming the skin, often over a basin of hot water. The steam opens up the pores, allowing you to remove dirt more easily. You massage the skin to remove buildup, with either a washcloth or a facial wash. Normal facials are ideal for people with acne-free skin.
Special facials are perfect for people with acne-prone or sensitive skin. Similar to a normal facial, it uses hypoallergenic creams, as well as specialized cleansing products that match your skin type. Special facials are best for people with sensitive skin.
Aromatherapy facials use fragrant essential oils to relax and distress the mind. It also clears congestion and brightens the skin.
