Looking after your skin with facials
Dal Dhaliwal, The Training Room ambassador has been investigating the benefits of facial treatments and gives us a snapshot of the best ways to look after our skin.
Life can be hectic and due to our busy lifestyles often we forget about our skin. A skincare beauty routine may not feature high on our list of priories as it should. However, it is important to look after our skin.
There are many factors that determine how our skin looks; these include smoking, sun exposure, genes, diet and water intake. Many women over clean the skins by using different products to exfoliate and cleanse. This can do more harm than good by stripping the skin of its essential nutrients and natural defences - which can lead to dry, sensitive dull skin. It is difficult to know how to best look after our skins and it can be confusing to know where to start because there are so many products available.
Our skins need deep cleansing regularly. It is recommended that regular facials be included into your beauty routine. A beauty professional will be able to look at your skin and recommend the best products to use for your particular skin type. For example, a beauty professional will be able to establish if you have oily, dry or normal skin. They will be able to offer advice specific to your skin type – and recommend what products will best suit your skin and an appropriate skincare routine. They will also be able to recommend specific facial treatments and a home skincare routine.
What is a Facial and what are the benefits?
A facial is a beauty treatment which can help to restore the skins clear completion, giving you healthier, radiant and youthful looking skin. A facial will often involve a cleansing routine to remove dead skin cells and impurities. A toner will be used as part of the facial treatment to help unblock pores by cleaning away dirt and impurities. The skin will be then moisturised to restore balance – rehydrate and to give a clearer brighter skin complexion.
Types of facials include: Basic Clean-up, Regular Facial, Acne Reduction Facial, Electric Current Facial, Galvanic Facial, Fruit Facial, Paraffin Facial, Antioxidant Facial, Gold Facial, Anti-Aging Facials, Collagen Facial, Vampire Facial, Microdermabrasion, Glycolic Acid Facial and many more. These facials all vary in price and each facial treatment uses different methods within the treatment routine and plan.
Many Spa facials will also involve a massage which will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and revitalised – a real feeling of being pampered. There are many types of facials and masks and these treatments involve a variety of creams, lotions, oils and gels. Facials are generally very safe and thought to not have any side effects. However, it is recommended you discuss the facial treatment beforehand with your beauty professional. Many beauty professionals will offer a consultation to assess your skin type and condition, so that they can tailor a treatment plan to meet your skins individual needs.
It is advisable to let the Beauty Professional know if you have any allergies, if you are pregnant, or if you are uncomfortable during a treatment e.g. feel pain or discomfort. This will help them to decide if a particular product or a treatment is suitable for you.
A facial treatment can leave your skin feeling brighter and restore glow, a clearer complexion and a more youthful appearance. It is also important to continue a good skincare routine at home. Every woman loves to be pampered, and what better way than indulging in regular facials!
