I’m sure you’ve heard about me talk about my facials, but do you know what they are? Do you know how often you should get one? Do you know what to do after one? Do you know what type of facial to get? Well, I’m here to help you! Here are 5 Things You Should Know About Facials.

 

 

1. What is a Facial?

A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion and can help your skin look younger. Let’s not forget about the extractions!

 

2.  How long does it take?

A full facial takes between 60-90 minutes.

 

3. What types of facials are there?

A great esthetician will determine which facial is right for you based on your skin type and needs. Here a few that I’ve received:

Classic

Microdermal Abrasion/Chemical Peels

LED

Hydrofacial

 

4.  How often should you get a facial?

Based on your skin type, once a month is usually best. I have sensitive skin and sometimes stretch out to 6 – 8 weeks. This timeframe also depends on your at home skin care routine.

 

5. What should you do after a facial?

After care is also important! You should definitely clean any items that will touch your face (i.e. cell phones, makeup brushes). Make sure you apply sunscreen and avoid long exposure in the sun. Stay hydrated. Here’s your excuse to skip the workout!
