WHAT IS A FACIAL?
A facial is a skin treatment of the face designed to clean, tone and improve the skin’s texture. A Facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A FACIAL?
It varies from person to person. Usually once a month is recommended because that’s how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Try to get a facial at least 4 times a year as the season changes.
WHY IS EXTRACTION IMPORTANT?
Because it helps the removal of blackheads or/and whiteheads. Extraction can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done improperly, these are the reasons why is important to have a professional facial.
How to Prepare for a Facial?
1)Skip cleansers and exfoliators before the treatment. Your facial treatment will have everything included so don’t waste your time and energy on that.
2)Do not experiment with new products
Before your first time facial, avoid using new products. Use the usual ones that you have been using all your life and are sure that they won’t cause any reaction.
3)Don’t face the sun
Stay away from the sun or tanning at least five days before. Sun damage on the skin might not produce effective facial results. Keep your skin hydrated before your planned facial day.
4)Remove your makeup
Remove or avoid makeup on your face before arriving for your facial treatment. This procedure requires your natural clean face surface to work on effectively.
5)Avoid Waxing or threading before your facial appointment
Don’t get bothered by your facial hair at least two days before your first facial appointment. If you want to get them waxed or threaded, get it at least a week before. These removal methods can already cause lots of itchiness that you do not want to experience during your facial.
6. Do not use any alpha-beta hydroxy acids and retinoic acid (Retin-A , Differin ) 5/7 days before your facial
Relax and enjoy the process
1. Visit your esthetician with a clear and relaxed mind. This process is so comforting that you will feel a sense of pleasure after you are done with your first facial. To ensure a great facial experience leave your cell phone away for a while so that you can enjoy the process to the fullest.
