Get a professional facial done in a beauty salon

A salon facial can last from 10 minutes to 1 hour and includes professional facial massage techniques.

You may even have 2 masks or a hot steam as well.

A professional facial really leaves your skin feeling good.

It's worth it and saves you time.

There are all kinds of facials you can have and your beautician will recommend the best skincare program for your skin.

You can have facials for anti fatigue and to brighten up the skin.

Or you can have purifying and detoxing face masks, or oxygenating masks which cleanse and tone your skin plus help the circulation around your face, release toxins and improve skin condition.

You can also have anti aging and rejuvenating facials which help tighten skin, improve skin tone, smooth out wrinkles and prevent further wrinkles.

What Kind Of Facials Can You Get?

Different types of facials

Anti aging facials

Moisturizing facials

Deep cleansing facials

Pore closing and skin refining facials

Resurfacing facials

There are so many different types of facials:

Have a facial for anti stress and fatigue, dark circles, anti wrinkles, moisturizing, cleansing, rejuvenating, relaxing and so on.

Face Steamers

The old tradition of sitting over a bowl of steaming water with a towel over your head are gone! You can get your own mini or portable face steaming gadget which does the same thing without the effort. Add a few drops of your favorite sented oil like lavendar, rose or tea tree to cleanse your skin and moisturize your skin.

The steamer helps to open pores and draw out impurities. Once you've finished the treatment you use a toner and then pat dry. Your pores appear smaller and you skin refreshed and younger looking.

How About Skin Resurfacing Or Microdermabrasion

Skin resurfacing and/or Microdermabrasion are when you exfoliate the outer layers of your skin, repairing the inner layers for younger looking wrinkle free skin. It is also good for acne scars and uneven skin tone.

Gentle Microdermabrasion masks aim to do the same thing but if you have a course done in a Beauty salon you can see the improvement in your skin after just 2 sessions. You usually have a course of 6 sessions. The result? More youthful looking skin. Skin is repaired from the inside out, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced and pores closed.

You have to be careful as professional skin resurfacing has to be done properly so that your skin does not have a bad reaction or go too red.

There are also Microdermabrasion face machines which do the same thing as the masks. Using this machine once a month for 6 months will help to repair your skin, give it an oxygen boost to revitalize it and smooth out uneven skin tone.

But it is a well known and effective facial treatment for a lot of problem skin types.

Homemade Clay Face Mask Treatment

Doing your own facial once a week at home can really benefit your skin if you are not going to get one done in a professional beauty salon. Some say home facials can be just as good as ones done by a beautician but I think you have to use the right products to get the same effect.

For example for a really good home made mask use green, red and white clays.

Either just mix with water or more commonly done is to add a couple of drops of essential oil. You can use rose, lavender, orange and so on.

Make a thick paste with any of the green, red or white clays.

Green clay deep cleanses and moisturizes at the same time.

Red clay cleanses your skin and also conditions and helps the skin to repair. Your skin will feel refreshed, soft and toned. Red clay also helps to close your pores and smooth out imperfections.

White clay deep cleanses your skin and conditions it as well leaving you with tighter and firmer skin.

Green, red and white clays are good for anti aging purposes as well. Using a clay mask regularly either once a week or once every 2 weeks will help to keep your skin moisturized and also act as an anti aging mask at the same time.
