Facials can be a great way to help take care of your skin, keeping it fresh, bright and healthy so that it glows. there are so man options out there though that it can be hard to know which one will be beneficial for your skin. Here are a few tips for picking the best facial for you.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GET ONE?
How often you get a facial will primarily depend on your skin type and lifestyle. It is best to consult with an aesthetician to determine what facial is best for you.
The climate strongly influences your skin condition. For example, in summer it is more important for oily skin to get facials and apply a moisturiser with sun block after.
Facials are for everyone and prevent problems for everyone. Most conditions should improve with regular facials, unless it’s a systemic problem. In such cases, you need to see a dermatologist.
WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Facials are usually relaxing and therapeutic, but there can be a few uncomfortable moments in the process. One seemingly unpleasant part – extractions! But don’t worry; they’ll be well worth it in the end.
The facial treatment usually involves the following being done to the face:
• Facial masque
A well-equipped aesthetician usually has a magnifying glass to identify impurities in the face. The skin is properly prepared and softened by facial steaming for successful extraction.
Premature extraction can cause skin scarring, and a good aesthetician will know that. Manual extraction can be painful and it’s possible that redness sometimes follows a facial, especially a deep pore cleanse treatment.
However, this usually goes away in about a day.
MAKE YOUR RESULTS LAST
The first step in making your facial last is getting your facial done by a properly trained and licensed aesthetician. If you are going to invest in a good-quality facial, make sure you get your money’s worth. The line of products used will strongly impact your treatment outcome – a professional line is always best!
When you’ve done a facial, make sure you maintain the results: it’s like going to your doctor and taking your prescription as recommended. You can’t expect the results to last if you go home and do nothing at all. You have to use a cleanser and moisturiser for your skin type and ensure that the aftercare recommended by your aesthetician is done for your own benefit.
