Scheduling an appointment for a professional skin care treatment or facial is essential to the overall health of your skin and its benefits stretch beyond the limits of glowing skin. Let's take a quick peek into the wonderful world of professional facials when executed by a true skin care expert. A trained and licensed esthetician.
1. Skin Analysis
This highly important step reveals your skin type, skin conditions and the best treatment to pursue during your facial and your home care routine. You won't be second guessing what to do anymore! You will have a professional recommendation, routine and access to professional products to take home and use on your face that will help maintain your facial results.
2. Cleansing * Exfoliation * Extractions (=CEE, sounds like some sort of a certification, doesn't it?)
We start with the removal of surface dirt, followed by cellular dirt and finally the impurities from your skin. This includes the removal of excess oils and blockages within your skin. Your skin texture noticeably improves.
3. Specific Skin Treatment
Here the focus is deeper. This is an additional step to a classic facial. Concerns addressed can be the reduction of pigmentation and scarring, cellular nutrition and hydration, maintenance and repair of the skin's lipid barrier for example.
4. Facial Massage
Aaahh! A facial massage is as wonderful as it sounds. In the hands of a professional your muscles and your body begins to relax. Stress and tension is relieved. Your skin's health and radiance awakens through cellular renewal. The increased blood flow and lymph feeds you skin, removes cellular wastes, promotes the production of collagen, relaxes fine line and wrinkles.
5. Masque and Protection
A wonderful way to wrap-up your facial. Think of the masque as a specialty blanket for your skin! The moisturizer and sunscreen offers protection to your skin for the rest of your day. Now you are back to reality with a spring in your step and you are putting your best face forward for the world to see.
A facial is not only essential for your skin. A facial is a much needed stress buster, feel better, health booster routine too!
