A facial is a professional cleansing, purifying, and beautifying of the skin on the face and neck. There are several variations of facials, including mini facials, detoxifying facials, anti-aging facials, facials that highlight special ingredients, like herbs or antioxidants, moisturizing facials, pore-refining facials, aromatherapy facials, and many more. A typical facial deeply cleanses and freshens the skin by exfoliating away dead skin cells. The objective of a classic European facial is to maintain soft, unblemished, well-hydrated skin.
Who Can Benefit From a Facial?
No matter how sensitive or hard to treat your skin is, you can still benefit from a facial because any facial can be suited to fit your individual skin care needs. If you have sensitive skin, only gentle cleansing and moisturizing products will be used. If your goal is to clear up your acne, your esthetician can guide you toward a facial that will help you achieve that goal. Be sure to communicate clearly with your skin care professional exactly what you want to get out of your facial, so your therapist can do his or her best to accommodate you.
