People get facials for different reasons: some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20s to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-ageing regimens. And then there are people who just want to relax and be pampered.
These are all fine reasons to get facials. But often the facial itself is a bit mysterious. What does the steam do?
Why do they keep putting creams on and taking them off? Why get facials regularly?
A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well- hydrated complexion and can help your skin look younger. You also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.
It is best to find an experienced, knowledgeable licensed esthetician who has special training in skin care and is knowledgeable, fastidious, and passionate about her work. A facial is the second most popular spa treatment after a massage.
