Facials have been an active part of a healthy skincare routine for hundreds of years. Even the beautiful Cleopatra was known to have used egg white as a face mask. Nowadays, when we talk about facials, we are talking about treatments which include steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage. Unlike our daily skincare routine, a facial performed by an expert can shower you with a number of fabulous results.
Cleansing: the deep cleansing process from a professional facial removes all traces of bacteria that can lead to skin issues (like acne for example). Furthermore, pores will be thoroughly cleansed (often all blackheads removed) and a careful exfoliation will remove dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin.
Rejuvenation: the exfoliation starts the process and the mask and massage will enhance it further, helping the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells to help nourish them and reduce the signs of aging and fatigue. Healthier, more radiant skin is revealed and ensuring you take time for regular facials will help to keep your skin looking it’s best.
Anti-Aging: Speaking of looking younger, facials are a great way to help slow down the aging process. Ask your facial expert for specific anti-aging creams to be used if you are particularly concerned about wrinkles and ensuring you promote collagen production to improve the elasticity of your skin. At Bem Estar we recommend products like The Ageless Collection from Image Skincare.
Skin problems: Facials are a very effective way to treat skin issues like acne, blackheads, sun damage, sun spots, rosacea, wrinkles, scarring, sagging skin/loss of elasticity and many more. Choosing the right facial together with an expert from Bem Estar can help to minimize or completely treat any skin issues you may have.
