There are a wide variety of facial treatments to choose from, but which one suits you? Continue reading about the tips for choosing the facial treatment you need!
What Do Facials Entail?
Have you ever wondered what the process of a facial entails? No matter which facial you pick, all follow essentially the same fundamental steps.
First, the esthetician cleanses the skin, removing excess oils and bacteria. Next, most facials include exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. The last step is applying hydrating serums and moisturizers to replenish your skin!
Understand Your Skin Type
While all facials are foundationally similar, the differences among facials cater to different skin types and issues. So to choose the facial treatment you need, you should understand your skin type.
Oily or Acne-Prone Skin
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, treatments that focus on exfoliation are ideal.
Microdermabrasion is one such treatment that uses intense exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and oils to bring back your once-luminous skin. This mechanical exfoliation process uses a machine that scrubs the skin, then uses suction to vacuum up the dead skin cells.
A hydrafacial is another treatment ideal for oily or acne-prone skin. It is a rejuvenating facial that exfoliates, removing extra oil and dirt from your pores. Afterward, an esthetician uses salicylic acid to remove blackheads and replenishes your skin with hyaluronic acid.
Individuals with dry skin should focus on hydrating treatments. You’ll want to get rid of that top layer of dry skin, then maximize moisture through hydrating serums and lotions.
If you have dry skin, you might consider choosing a silk facial. Silk facials make your skin feel bright and silky smooth by reducing fine lines and reviving the skin’s optimal pH balance. The exfoliation process is similar to microdermabrasion facials, but silk facials use various serums and moisturizers to hydrate the skin following the procedure. Not only will a silk facial give you instant results, but it will also improve the production of collagen and promote healthy skin cells!
Wrinkles and Anti-Aging Remedies
While wrinkles and other features of aging are natural and do not affect the health of your skin, many people want to minimize the results of aging that show on the face.
Because of this, some facials aim to reduce fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. These anti-aging facials revolve around nourishing and improving the elasticity of the skin. They boost your skin’s production of collagen, a protein that helps new skin cells grow and makes the skin firm.
The Results You Want
Once you understand your skin type, you’ll have a better understanding of the type of facial that will get you the results you need. Whether hydrating or removing excess oils, there’s a facial to suit your needs.
