Facials are more than a way to pamper yourself. Facials are an essential part of good skincare. They keep skin clean, hydrated, and looking fresh. And yes, they are also a relaxing moment of self-care.
What Is a Facial?
A professional facial helps to improve your skin. Customization allows you to address specific skin problems such as blemishes or dull skin for the best experience. Facials also achieve the following benefits:
- Remove dead skin cells
- Clear pores
- Diminish the look of fine lines
- Clear blemishes
- Boost collagen production
Whichever type of facial you choose, the result will be skin that looks and feels rejuvenated.
How to Prepare for a Facial
You can take certain measures to help maximize the effects of your facial and extend the benefits of the treatment.
First, avoid using any type of harsh exfoliant or at-home peel products at least four days before your appointment. While these products may be recommended in normal circumstances, they can irritate the skin and make it sensitive to the products or techniques used during the facial treatment.
Be sure to tell your technician about any skin sensitivities or other concerns you may have.
If you’re planning a beach day before the appointment, you may want to reconsider. There are treatments to help soothe a sunburn, but receiving a facial when your skin is compromised is not ideal.
Men should not shave on the day of their facial appointment.
What to Expect
Your facial will be a relaxing, pain-free experience. The clinician might use tools such as a facial steamer or microdermabrasion wand during the treatment. Feel free to ask questions about the process if it makes you more comfortable. But it’s best to get the questions out of the way before the facial begins so that you can fully relax during the appointment.
