Think about it: you’re lying down on a soft blanket, the lights are dimmed and soft, soothing music surrounds you. Perhaps the scent of your favorite aromatherapy is wafting through the air as your beauty technician sits down and begins an hour of luxurious pampering in the form of a facial. You’re there because you know facials help to soften the skin and give you a confidence boost every time you look in the mirror. There are many types of facial services to choose from, and each offers different results. The skin specialists at Bellava will help you select the facial service that’s best for your skin.
One thing is for certain, the reasons to get a facial go far beyond relaxation.
What is a Facial?
If you’ve never experienced a facial before, you are in for a treat. As previously suggested, the calming environment at Bellava provides the perfect backdrop to experience a facial—whether it’s your first or 21st.
A facial includes facial massage and steam. The skilled professional giving you the facial will follow a multi-step routine which includes cleansing, of course, as well as exfoliation of the skin, application of some topical creams chosen specifically for your skin type and possibly a relaxing face mask.
Your technician will speak with you about the type of facial best for your skin type. They will consider any skin conditions you may have, such as acne, oily or very dry skin. No worries. At Bellava, there are many types of facials to choose from, and they will all leave you relaxed and refreshed.
There are many reasons to not only have one facial but to schedule monthly services. When you get facials once a month, for example, the significant benefits will be visible to all. You’ll probably even get compliments about how radiant you look. (Shhh…no one has to know why you are glowing!)
Whether your skin needs to be firmed up, restored or moisturized, a facial may be a great way to achieve your goals. By the way, facials are great for men and women, and age is not a factor for most facials. In fact, some facials are designed to help clear acne breakouts, so teenagers might truly benefit from a facial at Bellava.
The Many Benefits of Facials Exfoliation & Detoxification
Have you noticed that your pores are rather large? One way to manage large pores is exfoliation, a big part of any facial. When your skin is exfoliated during a facial, the treatment deeply cleans out your pores. You may be thinking, “Isn’t that what face washing is for?” Yes, but a facial goes deeper than anything you can do by yourself at home.
At home, the products you use may leave your skin rough and dry. If this describes you, a facial will soften your skin and make absorption of the products you use in your daily skin routine work more efficiently.
Further, once the pores are unclogged, the various products used during the facial can penetrate deep into your skin. When you get regular facials, you’ll notice that your pores get smaller. The result is smoothing, younger-looking skin.
Every day, our faces are exposed to countless toxins in the air—no matter where we live. These toxins settle into your skin, producing acne and puffiness in all the wrong places. So, even when you wash your face daily and use moisturizer, you aren’t really getting at the root of the problem: toxins.
A facial usually involves various skincare products with antioxidants and other healthy ingredients aimed at detoxifying the skin, so your face won’t only feel clean and soft. It will be very clean, and you’ll look and feel refreshed.
Reduction of Acne
Acne is a fact of life for almost everyone. Whether acne in your younger years left you with scars or severely compromised skin or you are experiencing adult acne, a facial is a fix you are looking for!
Products used during a facial will contain salicylic acid, the main ingredient in products designed to reduce acne and the visibility of scars.
Further, your facial technician has special tools to remove whiteheads and blackheads that are clogging your pores. The result will be brighter skin with less visible acne!
