Facials. Some people swear by them, some people have never thought of getting them. Aren’t they just those mud pack things I can buy from Tesco?
Yes and no. If a mask is what you’re after, you can buy masks from Tesco. But a facial isn’t just a mud pack. A facial is a collection of skin care treatments for the face. These treatments include steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, masks, peels, and massage.
So this one’s for all the facial first-timers. What a facial is, what they can do and why you should think about them.
1. Facials can slow down the ageing process
Facials aren’t just a bunch of creams, there is a science behind it. For example, if you can get active forms of Vitamin A, C and Anti-Oxidants into the lower layers of the skin, this stimulates Collagen. What Collagen does is soften lines and improve elasticity of the skin, making it look more radiant!
In order to reach these deeper layers, you need more than just your fingers. Soundwaves and small electrical pulses help push the active vitamins into the layers of your skin.
This kind of facial (an Active Vitamin facial) is particularly effective at addressing sun-damage, pigmentation, premature ageing, dryness, uneven skin tone, and scarring with measurable differences in just one session.
2. Facials can pump more moisture into the skin, reducing wrinkles
Did you know that dehydration can cause the fine lines and wrinkles in your skin? It makes sense, when you think about it. When you fill a balloon with water, it’s smooth. Your skin is similar, when it’s dehydrated it will appear less firm and plump.
Try a facial based on Hyaluronic Acid. This holds 1000 times its own weight in water, and it helps to reduce fine lines caused by dehydration. It also helps increase the plumpness of the lower layers of skin, resulting in moisturised, glowing skin!
The perfect antidote to dry, lackluster skin, this intensive Hydraboost treatment deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin.
3. Facials can help with dermatological problems, such as rough skin
Facials aren’t just to help your skin feel silky smooth - they are serious business. Facials can help with dermatological problems, too. For example, for people with rough or problem skin, sun damage and Rosacea, a cool peel facial can achieve incredible results without damaging the skin.
Low strength Lactic Acid is used to reduce the skin’s PH and trigger the release of growth proteins, which creates tighter, smoother skin.
Not only this, but it destroys bacteria, boosts hydration and removes the build-up of dead skin cells, helping to decongest the surface and smooth its texture. Perfect for people with problem skin.
4. They can get rid of those pesky frown lines
We’ve all seen a photo of ourselves where our eyes go straight to our forehead. But did you know there’s a facial you can get that actually prevents these lines from forming in the first place?
Penta-peptide serum target frown lines specifically - and achieves dramatic results! The unique combination of active ingredients is driven deep into the skin not only to soften lines but also to reduce muscle tension in the forehead helping to prevent new lines forming.
The treatment targets the same chemical complexes as injectables without the associated risks (and no scary needles!)
