In this day and age, taking care of your mental and physical well-being is crucial for a healthy future. Whether you choose to take a daily walk down on your favourite path, stabilizing a good breathing routine or watching half an hour of your favourite TV, it’s really important to do the things that make you feel like your best and most energized self. Getting a facial treatment is one of the greatest ways of self-care, and if you choose to go with a licensed aesthetician your experience will be enhanced even further.
Which Facial Treatment Is Right for Your Skin Type?
International Beauty Institute offers a comprehensive Spa Therapist Diploma that includes training in proper facial treatment applications, amongst body treatments, nail care and waxing. If you’re curious to know more about facial treatments and the advantages of it, I have compiled 4 different facials to help you choose which one is best for your skin type.
For Lifeless Skin, Clogged Pores and Irritation: Choose the European Facial. The most common type of facial, its non-invasive approach clears your skin of dead bacteria on the surface of your skin. The European Facial combines cleansing, exfoliation, steam and a massage to regenerate a healthy glow and colour to your face. One treatment every 6 weeks is recommended for proper upkeep.
For Acne, Sagging Skin and Fine Lines: Choose LED Light Therapy. The heat-free light affects your deeper dermis to produce elastic for a youthful appearance and kills any incoming acne-bacteria to prevent breakouts. A treatment every month will give you the best results.
For Age Spots, Stretch Marks and Acne Scars: Choose Microdermabrasion. Performed by exfoliating crystals that suck up the dull cells, or also performed by a diamond-covered head that scrubs off the older cells leaving younger cells rise to the surface. Microdermabrasion treatment simply sheds away the first layer of your skin to showcase your fresh pores underneath the gunk, and it increases the saturation of potions and creams. Recommended once a month.
For Sun Damage and Uneven Pigmentation: Choose a Chemical Peel. Similar to Microdermabrasion, a Chemical Peel sheds the first layer of dull skin to pave way for a fresher layer. Using glycolic acid if you have fine lines, lactic acid treats aging and sun spots and salicylic acid targets acne or oily skin. Whatever type of skin you have, there is a right chemical peel for you. Recommended every two months for best effects.
