What Are Facials?

Your skin is made up of millions of tiny pores, which can get clogged in the course of daily activities. In addition, your skin’s cells are going through a constant cycle of change. New cells are born, old cells die, and the process begins again. A facial helps exfoliate and remove dead cells while cleaning and unclogging pores using natural ingredients such as clay and vitamin C.

Benefits of Facials

In addition to improving the tone and texture of skin, a facial can also do the following:

  • Hydrate your skin and prevent future breakouts.
  • Remove dirt, oil, and other impurities that can clog skin and lead to blemishes.
  • Smooth out tired, rough skin, leaving it feeling touchable and soft.

Preparing for a Facial

Before your facial, make sure to adequately cleanse your skin using a gentle cleansing solution. Avoid any harsh scrubbing or exfoliation treatments as these may redden sensitive skin.
