Although achieving healthy skin at home is possible, many people turn to skincare professionals when they feel their skin need some extra help. A facial is a great way of giving your skin that extra boost and keeping it soft and supple. But what is a facial, and how can having one help your skin? This guide from Elements Beauty Spa in Denia will help.
What is a facial?
A basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. It is also a popular spa treatment to pamper and relax, right up there with a massage.
What happens during a facial?
Most basic facials include some version of the following five steps:
Aestheticians massage a cleanser into the face, neck, and décolletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, they remove the cleanser, dry faces, and evaluate skin. This step helps them determine what type of custom mask they will apply later.
Depending on the spa you’re visiting, your aesthetician may buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub and/or open up pores with steam.
This process is done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. Aestheticians will perform the extractions either by hand or with a special metal tool.
A facial typically also includes a massage of the face—and often the upper body, too—that may be used to improve lymphatic drainage.
Masks and more
Aestheticians then apply a custom mask, perhaps a clay-based one to treat oiliness or a hydrating one to combat dryness. The facial concludes with a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen if it’s daytime.
Most basic facials take around 60 minutes to complete.
Facials are designed to revitalise, replenish and hydrate, leaving you with healthy, glowing skin. The specialist treatments provided at Elements Beauty Spa are designed to tighten, tone, refresh tired skin and take years off you.
Each facial treatment begins with a 15 minute skincare consultation which allows you to discuss your current skincare and face care regime, and for us to analyse your skin in order to ensure you receive the best treatment for you.
