Because your face is exposed to harsh elements like sun, wind, cosmetics, and possibly smoke, the deep cleansing of a facial can unclog your pores and create healthier and better-looking skin. The process of a facial can involve using extraction or masks to unclog your pores and steam or hot moist towels to sooth skin. The specific ingredients and procedures will be chosen by your esthetician to perfectly match your skin type.
Additionally, a good esthetician will help you create a home care regime tailored to your specific skin type. Skin type is generally determined by pore size, tone, and texture, in addition to oil production. Make sure to tell your esthetician about any special areas of concern (wrinkles, acne, etc) and any allergies you may have.
Every facial experience should allow you to feel pampered and comfortable with glowing skin. To get the maximum benefit from your facial, commit to a good skin care routine between facials; don’t forget to cleanse, moisturize, and apply sunscreen everyday.
