If you are like the rest of us, you want to look younger and have that porcelain-like skin. The average woman spends $313 per month on their skin care products. Whether you have blemishes, acne, or hyperpigmentation, you have probably tried various skin care products or even a facial. An excellent facial will cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This is usually done by performing extraction and steaming the skin. Afterward, a mask and some moisturizer are applied to help give the surface a soft look and feel.
Facials are great for most people but not for everyone. If you are pregnant, you should ensure you know the products that will be used on your skin. This way you can ensure you aren’t allergic or if your doctor advises you to avoid certain ingredients.
Anyone thinking about getting a facial should do a patch test beforehand. This test will help to see if you will have any reactions to the products. Just ask your esthetician to find out what is best for you. Viva Day in Austin, Texas offers organic facial treatments as an upgrade. Organic means that the ingredients occur naturally in nature usually from fruits and vegetable or herbs and oils.
Cleansing the Skin
The first step is to cleanse the skin. Most spas have multiple products that can be used for this process. It is best to work with your esthetician to see what products they recommend based on the skin and blemishes you have.
Almost all of us have blackheads and whiteheads, and the extraction process helps remove them. A trained esthetician can remove these safely and more comfortable than most of us can. Never pick at them yourself as these can leave horrible imperfections on your skin.
You can’t look younger unless you remove the old dead skins first. During the exfoliation process, your esthetician will take off the top layer of dead skin cells. Exfoliation helps brighten the skin and lets the skin care products penetrate the skin better. It’s important to note that there are two types of exfoliation chemical and manual exfoliation. Depending on the spa you go to you may even have a choice.
At some spas like the Body Centre Day Spa, a microdermabrasion treatment may be added to the service. During microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are used to help exfoliate the skin in a non-invasive process.
Every good facial comes with a facial massage. The massage servers several purposes including good blood circulation and make you feel amazing. Besides looking goof after your facial, the massage is the best part. You will want to relax and enjoy this experience.
Tighten That Skin Up
During a good facial you will get a mask towards the end of your treatment. The mask will have several purposes, but the main benefit is to tighten up that skin. This is one of the most vital aspects of a facial as it can make you look younger by tightening up all the loose skin. Also, many of these masks contain essential vitamins and minerals for your skin.
Tips for Better Skin
Outside of getting a facial every couple of weeks, there are things you can do to have better-looking skin. The first and most important thing is to drink plenty of water. It is recommended that you drink 2-3 liters of water per day.
Always use sunscreen even if you are going to be outside for just 20-minutes. It doesn’t take long to get a burn or to tan that skin, especially on hotter days.
Ensure you always remove your makeup before bed. Wearing makeup longer than you have to clogs your pores and is not good for the skin.
