A facial is the perfect way to get your holiday edge this season. No matter what your skin concerns might be, the right facial can clear up skin issues and give you a healthy glow. With many options in facials on the market today, how do you know which treatment is the right one for you?

How do Facials Work?

Facials are aesthetic treatments that typically include cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, treatment and hydration. The procedure can be appropriate for all skin types and tones, depending on the specific products used during the treatment. Choosing the right facial for your specific needs will make all the difference in the successful outcome of your procedure.

Know Your Skin Type

The first step in selecting the right facial for you is to identify your specific skin type. Basic skin types are as follows:

  • Normal Skin – not too oily, not too dry, but still prone to losing its luster if it is not properly cared for
  • Dry Skin – dry, taut and prone to flakiness, dry skin needs a potent dose of hydration as well as an exfoliation to restore its smooth, supple appearance
  • Oily Skin – may feel greasy even soon after a thorough cleansing, apt to look shiny midway through the day and predisposed to frequent breakouts
  • Combination Skin – with some areas dry and some areas oily, this skin type requires specialized care to address the wide variety of issues
  • Sensitive Skin – with a propensity toward reacting to the slightest irritation, this skin type needs the gentlest ingredients to treat without damaging the outer dermal layer
  • Aging Skin – can be dry, oily or sensitive, but aging skin has unique concerns to address like fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity and pigmentation irregularities

The good news is there are appropriate facial options for all of these different skin types to target specific issues and give the skin a healthy, radiant glow.

When facials are performed by certified aestheticians, these treatments are both pampering and powerful.
