Enjoy a Facial and Help Your Skin
For some, facials may feel like a luxury. However, facials are an important part of your skin’s health. It’s important to know your skin type so that you know the best type of facial to get and products to use on your face. You may have breakouts, dry skin, or be experiencing signs of aging. Facials can help all of these issues. It’s a matter of finding the right one to get.
A typical facial consists of cleansing and exfoliating the skin and removing blackheads or whiteheads that clog pores.
After that, the esthetician will analyze your skin under a bright light. How she continues will depend on the diagnosis. Your expert will use the proper mask and moisturizer for your skin type. Steam is usually included to open pores.
Here are some of the most common types of facials, what they consist of, and how they can help your skin:
Anti-Aging Facial: This type uses products and techniques designed to slow the aging process, brighten skin, and reduce wrinkles. You can choose from a variety of anti-aging facial treatments that can include vitamin-infused serums, light therapy, or microdermabrasion.
Acne Facial: These are recommended for patients prone to oily skin acne breakouts, or for those with uneven complexions. They combine thorough steaming, deep cleansing, facial extractions to remove pore-clogging pimples, and a variation of healing masks and moisturizers. We will often use products containing salicylic and glycolic acids to help prevent acne flare-ups.
Fruit Acid Facial: These are wonderful for those with oily skin. They use acids derived from fruit because they stimulate collagen levels and improve tone and texture of the skin. They also are known to reduce wrinkles, age spots, scars, and hyperpigmentation and to treat conditions relating to sensitive skin.
Common fruit acids are taken from sugar cane, milk, lemons, apples, pears, oranges, and grapes. They may also be listed as peels on some spa menus.
Men’s Facial: Facials aren’t just for women. Men can have facials that are designed to their needs, such as razor burn, skin sensitivity, and dullness.
Oxygen Facials: These work on visible signs of aging that occur because oxygen hasn’t made its way from capillaries under the skin to the surface of the skin.
Rosacea Facials: Rosacea is a red rash-like condition of the skin. Facials for patients with rosacea use products designed to calm irritation and decrease the redness associated with this skin condition. Facials for rosacea help protect, correct, and boost the skin by strengthening capillaries and evening skin tone.
Sensitive Skin Facial: There is any number of reasons your skin can become sensitive. These include environmental damage, rosacea, peels, or laser treatments or by natural changes due to age. Facials for sensitive skin use gentle procedures and hypoallergenic products that are appropriate for sensitive skin.
