Having healthy, beautiful skin starts with good skincare, and facials are essential in every skincare routine. There are many facial treatments you can choose from. Most of them will thoroughly clean your skin and leave your complexion feeling and looking radiant and rejuvenated.

 The best part about facials is that you can customize the treatment to your skin type, concerns, and goals. Before each facial session, you should always speak to your aesthetician about any concerns you may have, for example, dry patches or under-eye circles. You should also mention ingredients that you’ve had bad reactions to in the past, allergies, and any medications you’re taking. They may also ask you about your current skincare regimen at home and give product suggestions to prolong the benefits of your facial.

 Wondering what these benefits are? You can expect the following results even with the most basic facial treatments:

Deep Cleaning

Your facialist will begin with a facial cleanser on cotton pads or wipes to remove any surface-level dirt, oil and skin cell debris on your face, neck and decolletage. After that, they will exfoliate your skin to prepare it for extraction. Warm steam will soften the skin, open up the pores, and allow deep-level dirt, bacteria and toxins to escape. These are often the culprits for unwanted skin issues such as acne and premature ageing. Steam also encourages blood vessels underneath your skin to dilate, which improves circulation and fluid drainage to restore the glow in your complexion.

Unclog Pores

Clogged pores result from sebum, a natural oily liquid secreted to keep our skin lubricated, mixing with dead skin and bacteria. They can appear larger and darker, appearing like black dots on your face. Your facialist will help you remove blackheads and whiteheads with sterilized tools and chemical exfoliants.

Radiant Complexion

Exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal the healthier, more glowy skin underneath. It also helps any serum or creams applied afterwards to penetrate the skin more deeply. Your skin will also feel softer, smoother, and plumper.

Some popular specialty facials include:

Anti-Acne Facial

This facial is designed to treat and prevent breakouts. In general, you can expect more potent chemical exfoliants, such as salicylic acid peels, more extended extractions, and serums with active anti-acne enzymes.

Anti-ageing Facial

Anti-aging facials include similar steps to a basic facial, but with ingredients targeted for aging skin, such as collagen, vitamin C, and retinol products.
