Having beautiful skin and keeping it beautiful is something every women dreams of. Getting beautiful skin is not easier but it can be done by getting facials on a monthly basis. Just getting a facial is not enough, you have to take care of your skin on a daily basis and this doesn’t mean washing your face with soap and water. Here are some great benefits from getting facials, different types of facials, how to take care of your skin in-between facials, and some of the things your skin need everyday.

Why People Get Facials.

People get facials for the relaxation feeling or for the improvement of the skins overall look. A facial is a great way to be pampered and relax. A facial is used to remove dead skin cell build up that clogs pores, and give skin a more youthful glow.

The Facial Process.

There are many different types of facials in the world. Each facial helps solve a specific skin problem. All facials consist of a cleansing process, exfoliation process, a masking process, and the finishing process. Other facials can include peels, paraffin, foot massages, and extractions. Each are done differently by different aestheticians. The cleansing process is the first process and it is done twice. The 1st cleanse is to remove excess make-up, dirt and oil from your face, neck, and chest. The 2nd cleanse is usually done with steam. It is done with steam because stem opens your pores allowing the cleanser to get deep inside, and bring the dirt out.

Next is the exfoliation process. The exfoliation process is the most important part of the facial. The exfoliation process is done by having the steam still running and adding massaging a scrub on your face, neck, and chest. The exfoliant goes into the pores to remove dead skin cell build-up, and any dry skin on your body. While the scrub is on the skin, a hot towel will gently be wrapped on your face, leaving your mouth and nose exposed, and the steam turned off. After the towel begins to cool, the excess scrub is removed.


The 3rd process is the masking. The masking is done to help tighten up skin, for deep cleansing in the pores, or to help heal and refresh your face. The facial mask normally turns to more of a solid while on your face. The amount of time it is left on is determined by the aesthetician. While the facial mask is on, a neck and shoulder massage is performed. This allows time for the mask to work. A hot towel will be placed on top of the mask, and used to remove the mask. 


After the mask has been removed a toner will be applied to your face. A toner is used to help balance your skins ph levels, and shrink down the size of your pores. After the toner is applied, the final step is to apply a light amount of moisturizer. The moisturizer will help to keep your skin hydrated, and keep it from becoming to dry. Your facial is now complete.


Different Types of Facials.

The most standard form of facials are European and mini facials. A mini facial is shorter version of a European facial except there are no extractions. They are great facials to take care of basic skin needs. If you are looking for something specific you can try an anti-aging facial, or problem skin facial. Both facials are 90 mins and target specific skin needs. The anti-aging facial is great if you want something that is going to give you a more youthful glow. It includes an eye treatment, that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. The problem skin facial is good for people who experience lots of breakouts. It helps target the source of the breakouts, and deeply clean out your pores with multiple cleansing treatments. If you feel like your face isn’t the only place that is breaking out, you can get a back facial. A back facial is a deep cleansing scrub, paired with a purifying mask that will rejuvenate your skin.

How to Take Care of Your Skin at Home.

Two easy things you can do to keep your skin looking good by drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep. By drinking plenty of water, your skin will stay hydrated and will be less likely of becoming dry. Getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night can keep your skin from looking tired and distressed. To get the best looking skin, establish a skin care routine for every morning and every night. Before you touch your face, be sure to wash your hands. Start by damping your face with warm water, and begin cleansing with a mild cleanser. Use your hands to work the cleanser in. Rinse your face with warm water and a gentle sponge. Once a week you should use an exfoliating scrub on your face. It will give your skin the soft, smooth appearance. Let face dry for a few minutes, then spray toner on cotton and gently dab your face. Follow up with a moisturizer for your skin type. By following this routine you will help keep your skin looking great in between spa visits. You should still go get a facial at least once a month. 

Follow these steps and continue to get your facials, to have great looking skin everyday.
