Whether it’s UV damage, weather exposure, lack of daily skin care, or any other reason, dry facial skin can take the joy out of your day. It can be uncomfortable or embarrassing, but there are great options available to fight back. Facials are one of the best ways to deal with the effects by stimulating and rejuvenating your skin. A facial can give your skin that extra moisturizing push it needs to get back to its regular self-cleansing, self-healing, and self-regenerating cycle. Your aesthetician can select the combination of exfoliation, moisturization, and massage techniques unique to your skin type.
So what, exactly, is involved in a rehydrating facial?
Cleaning and exfoliating
Exfoliating removes dead skin and softens resistive tissue and hair follicles. Which eliminates dirt, toxins, and other cellular debris clogging up your pores. A hydrating cleanser is then used to help jump start your skin’s moisturizing capability. These gentle cleansers should be selected based upon your skin type with a focus on current sensitivities.
Nutrient rich masks are necessary to invigorate your dehydrated skin. They work to lift your skin to a new level, repairing damage and soothing the post-exfoliation process. There are many types of masks, from heated to cold creams. We offer some unique options as well. Age defying facials will incorporate age defying products and massage to lift and plump the skin while an acne facial can reduce inflammation, redness, and pimples. A particular favorite is the heated bamboo facial massage which utilizes heated bamboo implements that glide smoothly over the face to deliver a luxurious sense of relaxation.
Massage is a wonderful way to stimulate healing in the mind and body. Its effects have been proven time and again. By using focused facial massages to target dry areas, your skin can absorb the rich oils and other moisturizing treatments available while gaining the added benefit of de-stressing.
This three-part combination creates a relaxing and rejuvenating experience that transcends your normal daily skin care routine. There are other things you can do to help maintain that glow between facials.
Make sure you use a sunscreen to protect your skin, even on cloudy days. Use moisturizers and cleansing products that are right for your skin type. Limit your exposure to the elements where you can. Your face is the first thing the world sees. Give it the love and care it deserves. Get a facial today and you’ll see immediate results.
