Chantel has worked in the beauty industry since 2013. Providing and personalizing skincare treatments as an esthetician.

Not very many people hear about the benefits of paprika. They assume its another beauty fad, forget about it until the next best thing. Paprika facials have been around for centuries in the middle east. The beauty treatment can be used for aging skin concerns such as wrinkles, sagging, age spots. It is very beneficial for younger skin as well, such as oily skin with a lot of blackheads. Acne and post acne marks can be cleared up. It is not advised to do this treatment if you have sensitive skin.

The magic behind this ingredient is all about stimulation. When you stimulate the skin and bring blood flow to the surface, you are allowing the oil and the blackheads to loosen up. Making it easier to extract. With aging skin the paprika is beneficial by signaling the skins response to repair. The paprika mimics a sign of damage to the skin. The cells respond by bringing in more cells. Therefore you are increasing your cell turnover rate, increasing your collagen and elastin production. By stimulating the skin and allowing the blood to come to the surface, this allows your serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeper. You will be increasing the effectiveness of your products.

Now that we know how great paprika can be for the skin. You can determine how often you do this treatment and if you would rather go to a professional or do it at home. For my clients in the treatment room, I will use Eminences AHA fruit pulp treatment as an exfoliant. This is a 20% natural AHA that will gently and effectively exfoliate the skin. After applying a quarter sized amount of that on the face and neck, I will apply Eminences Paprika treatment. This is applied on top bringing on a deeper exfoliation. If I have a client who has thicker and oily skin I will use Eminences Blueberry detox peel instead. This is a 20% peel formulated with paprika in it. You will get more pink with this product and it really helps to tighten pores.

For anyone who cannot find a spa with authorized Eminence skincare, you can mix your own concoction up. You can do paprika mixed with honey. you can mix 1 part paprika 1 part turmeric and 1 part honey. That would be great if you have pigmented skin. Allow the paprika treatment to penetrate the skin for 15 minutes. EXPECT to be pink or red after this treatment for up to an hour afterwards. You can apply this mask to the undereye area. you really want this to be on the orbital bone and not past it. You do not want to apply this on the lids, as the skin on the eyes is very sensitive. After you remove your facial, the most beneficial thing you can do is apply your vitamin c serum, treatment serum, recovery oil product, and finish with eye cream and moisturizer. Leave a comment below regarding how your skin feels and looks afterwards!
