hygiene & exercise for the skin. Facials offer you the

& show you how to have proper homecare for your
Facial is a very general term for skin treatments usually performed by a licensed aesthetician. As the name implies, it is skin treatment for the face, though you may be lucky and get some neck or shoulder massage (and sometimes even a foot massage) too. There are a variety of types of facials, different types of products used, and there can be some variation in length. The typical extensive facial generally lasts about an hour or even longer, and other treatments called “mini-facials” may only take about 15-30 minutes.
The basic goals of facials are the same regardless of treatment, and you can expect the following things to occur when you have one:
The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and dead skin cells will be exfoliated.
The aesthetician will evaluate your skin type and find treatments that are best suited for your specific skin issues and concerns.
You may have extraction of blackheads, whiteheads, and blemishes. .
You will likely have a skin mask treatment. You will also have some degree of facial massage with applications of various serums, creams and moisturizers.
* A facial will give you a deep cleansing. Just like a professional cleaning at the dentist, it’s deeper and more thorough than you can get at home.
* A skin care specialist or esthetician will choose the ingredients to help your skin type.
* A facial helps increase circulation and stimulates the skin. It can also help slow down premature aging by custom-targeting your skin care.
*Professional facials can ‘reset’ your skin’s natural balance so a solid foundation can be built for a positive skin care routine. Regular visits with your esthetician will ensure you not only maintain your skin’s healthy balance but continue to improve the quality of your skin as well.
*Most importantly a facial will relax you. A spa offers a serene environment that encourages stress reduction. Facials not only help your skin, but can be soothing.
With all of that being said, we recommend you get regular facials every 4-6 weeks. At SKin Care by Donna we have facial packages to make it more affordable. You will be amazed by what a difference this will make in your skin.
