Put the glow back into your life with a Facial

There's nothing quite like a luxurious, pampering facial for putting the glow back into skin that's become tired and dull through the effects of modern-day living stresses .

The skin's cells regenerate every 21 days so it makes sense to go for a facial every three or four weeks to remove any build-up of dead cells.

Facials can rejuvenate skin, wake up sluggish circulation, reduce puffiness around the eyes and enrich your complexion with radiant good health. They are also deeply relaxing and anything that allows you time to yourself away from the daily stresses and strains must be good - some believe they can be as good for your mood as they are for your skin.

 

What to expect:

There are six steps to most facials: cleansing, exfoliating, toning, moisturizing massage and mask,. Facials normally last between an hour and 90 minutes, including 10 to 15 minutes during which time you can relax while the mask takes effect. It is a good idea to tell your therapist beforehand about any past troubles you may have had with your skin and also any medication you may be on, so the therapist can take this into account when deciding which products are best for you.

Most facials start with the removal of make-up and deep cleansing to remove the grime of daily living. This is followed by exfoliation which whisks away any build up of dead skin cells, peps up circulation and helps stimulate cell production.

Next comes a gentle, soothing massage with a cream or oil to warm up the skin, making it more receptive to the mask, which comes next. Masks can be deep cleansing or moisturizing depending on your skin type and work by gently activating

the skin, loosening dead surface cells and most importantly boosting circulation.

After the mask comes some toner to refresh your skin and remove any remnants of the cleansing solutions. The final step is a generous application of moisturizer or protective cream to rehydrate the skin.

 

Getting the best from your facial:

Avoid booking a facial around the time of your period, as your skin can be especially sensitive at this time.

Ask what creams and lotions are going to be used. Also inquire if any machinery or instruments are included in the treatment

Find out how much the facial is going to cost, and how long it will take

Ask if you have to leave the skin alone for a certain amount of time afterwards, or if make-up can be applied immediately.

Ask the therapist to talk you through the facial step-by-step so you know what to expect at every stage.
