What Causes Wrinkles?
Collagen keeps skin healthy, youthful and resilient. Unfortunately, as we age we begin to produce free radicals which can break down collagen. Add Sun exposure and other harsh environmental factors to the mix and you have the perfect recipe for wrinkles, fine lines and visible skin damage.
What is a Facial?
A facial is a procedure involving a variety of skin treatments, including: steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels and massage.
A facial mask is a creamy paste (or gel) applied to the entire, already-cleansed face. It often contains minerals, vitamins, essential oils and/or fruit extracts(e.g., cactus, cucumber, etc.). There are different kinds of masks for different purposes: deep-cleansing, by penetrating the pores; healing acne scars or hyper-pigmentation; brightening, for a gradual illumination of the skin tone. Some masks are designed to dry or solidify on the face, almost like plaster; others just remain wet. The perceived effects of a facial mask treatment include revitalizing, healing, or refreshing; and, may yield temporary or long-term benefits (depending on environmental, dietary, and other skincare factors). Masks are removed by either rinsing the face with water, wiping if off with a damp cloth, or peeling off of the face by hand. Duration for wearing a mask varies with the type of mask. Masks can vary in consistency and form. These forms include: clay, which is a thicker consistency, and will draw out impurities (and sometimes, natural oils, too) from the pores; a cream, which stays damp to hydrate the skin; sheet-style, in which a paper mask is dampened with liquid to tone and moisturize the skin; and lastly, a hybrid/clay & cream form that includes small beads for removing dead surface skin cells. These different forms are made to suit different skin types (e.g., oily, dry), and different skincare goals or needs (e.g., moisturizing, cleansing, exfoliating). Clay and mud masks suit oily and some “combination” skin types, while cream-based masks tend to suit dry and sensitive skin types.
It’s not enough to get a facial to keep your skin clear and beautiful. You need to have a great home skin-care routine. Here are the everyday habits you need to keep your skin beautiful:
- Eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables and leafy green. Good nutrition is the basic building block of healthy skin.
- Drink plenty of water every day.
- Cut out skin-damaging habits like smoking, excessive drinking, tanning booths and excessive sun exposure.
- Use professional products suitable for your skin type. Our professional estheticians can give you a complete skin analysis and guide you to the correct products.
