Acne, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, oily skin, blemishes, signs of aging – when you look in the mirror, what do you see? If you’re like most women, you don’t see perfection. Though I’m 100% certain you are beautiful just the way you are, most women don’t see that in themselves, and a lot of the things that they hate most about themselves come down to battles with their skin. But if you are facing such battles, chances are you are doing something wrong with your skin care routine. Whether you aren’t cleansing enough, over cleansing, need to moisturize more – the causes could go on and on, but a good facial could help you fix your skin and discover what it is that you are doing wrong.
If you are having problems with your skin, it is highly recommended that you speak to a professional beautician who can not only give you a facial, but who can also give you advice on how to maintain proper skin care at home. While there are many at home facials that you can provide for yourself, we recommend that you get started in a salon first – deal with the concerns at hand and learn from a professional how to target them before setting out on your own.
During your initial visit to a salon or clinic, a good beautician will take the time to talk to you about your skin care concerns and provide a detailed analysis on your skin type and skin needs. From there, they can develop the perfect facial routine to help you target the issues at hand. Some facials, for example, are simply targeted at cleansing the skin, while others may be targeted at things like anti-aging, hydration, or brightening. And depending on your needs and budget, facials can take many different forms. They can be as simple as a hydrating mask, or can go as far as using special machinery like oxygen machines and ozone steamers.
Once you start noticing a difference in your skin, you can simply go for maintenance facials and continue the rest at home. There are many at home-facial kits that you can buy nowadays that allow you to complete your own facials right from home. Again, we advise that you ask your beautician for suggestions before going ahead and buying such kits because they can be quite expensive. You will also want to combine them with a good skin care routine including cleansing, moisturizing, and exfoliating – with all natural products if possible.
Where should you start? We advise starting small. Go to your local clinic or spa and ask for a simple facial – don’t worry about all of the latest high tech machinery – just go small. There is no strong evidence to suggest that the latest high tech ozone steamer works any better than an ordinary facial, so just save your money, start with the basics, and remember that you can always work your way up from there if you aren’t getting the results you want.
