Most of us who go for regular facials are under the guidance of our specific therapists, but sometimes, especially when you are visiting a new salon, it is difficult to choose which facial you need. The therapist doesn’t yet know your skin or how you may react to certain product and more so if it is a product range you have never tried.
The safest choice when it comes to choosing the right facial is usually a deep cleanse or hydration facial. Anyone can, at any point do with a cleansing of the pores, which may or may not include extractions. In most cases it is optional, so do tell your therapist if you would like extractions. The facial is usually very basic, and includes the following steps:
- Steam, followed by extractions
- Massage using either a specialized serum or a massage cream/oil
- Mask – determined by what your skin is needing at that moment, be it hydration, desensitizing etc
- Application of day cream suited to your skin type. Do ask if it contains a broad-spectrum SPF of minimum 15, to protect your skin against damaging UV exposure.
Do ask your therapists to do a consultation with you before your facial, so that you can both decide on which route to follow. Consultations are also a good idea to have regularly, even if you have been with your therapist for a while. Changes happen that affect our skins daily, such as ageing, hormonal changes, sudden breakouts, stress, and dietary changes that may lack certain food groups etc.
