Facials in Southampton
From cleansing to rejuvenating: a quick guide to why facials are your face’s best friend
We all know it is essential to take care of our skin on a daily basis.
We’ve all read how smoking, one drink too many, days out in the sun as well as another multitude of sins which we commit on a regular basis are bad for your skin, its appearance and how quick (or not!) we age…
We know all this. But how many of us actually have a routine that involves making our skin a priority? We all have busy lives, so we may skip what we see as just another demand on our precious time. Sound familiar?
But let me tell you about a super relaxing way to look after your skin, one that has deep reaching benefits: Our YOU Massage Southampton Facials!
First, let’s start with the basics:
A facial is a face treatment delivered by a therapist that can be as quick as 15mn (mini facials) to a full 90mn when specifically targeted.
It involves a series of stages: Cleansing, skin analysis, exfoliating, steaming, massaging, a mask, toning and moisturising, as well as a long list of possible extras: collagen mask, anti-aging style face massage, extraction…etc.
Many of us just don’t do this ourselves, so a facial is a must if you want to see improvement in the overall appearance of your face.
The benefits of a Facial
Your skin will look much brighter and softer
The deep cleansing provided by the facial will removes dead skin cells and other blockages such as blackheads and whiteheads leaving your skin bright and soft. This also helps the skin absorb products much better, during the facial and also in the days that follow.
Your skin issues can be addressed
Whether your skin is dry, saggy, prone to breakouts or over pigmented, a targeted mask and massage will help to redress the balance. Masks can provide added moisture to the skin, help to tighten it, to fade dark spots, to clear break-outs or provide deep nourishment to plump it.
You will look younger
Firstly, the overall effect of deep cleansing the skin that reveal fresh and bright new skin will take years off you. Then the massage will promote blood circulation, stimulate and tighten the muscles. Regular facials can help to minimise the effect of the aging process especially when specifically targeted to do so (rejuvenating facials).
Facials are so much more than an indulgent pampering. They have enormous benefits to the health and wellness of your skin, both in the short and long term.
When you consider all of the regular visits you make (dentist, hair salon, gym), you’ll realize you really should be focusing some of that time on your skin—even if it’s just when seasons change and your skin is at its most vulnerable.
Nowadays they are no longer just for ladies. Plenty of men have them at our Southampton studio too.
Depending on the condition of your skin, your age, skin care goals and budget, regular facial treatments, anywhere from once a season, for normal skin, once a month (for normal to dry skin) to every two weeks (for combination or acne-prone skin) is recommended.
Looking forward to getting to know your skin soon.
