What is a facial, and what should you expect?
A facial is a luxury add on to your skincare routine. A multi-step skin treatment is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, glowing and well-hydrated complexion. You will also receive expert advice on the best way to take care of your skin.
A basic facial will work to cleanse your pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and treat common skin concerns with a custom mask. Each facial will begin with a consultation from your esthetician (Debbie or Yasmin) to determine the right kinds of products for your skin type.
All natural facials at The Practice Beauty Clinic.
We use the superb Eve Taylor®️ products in our facials. In fact, in the last 50 years, they have never tested any of their products on animals! Their products only contain healthy skin ingredients that are beyond cosmetic, ingredients that work below the surface layer of the skin.
Centred around the Eve Taylor®️ all-natural essential oils, our facials harness the power of nature’s finest ingredients. Essential oils have both an aromatic benefit from the plant but, also the oils have such fantastic therapeutic properties. Apart from a great aroma and incredible sensory triggers, essential oils also have the ability to help restore balance.
What facial should I get?
What facial should I get?
Normal skin types can be treated with moisturisers, toners, and facial masks that you can pick up in your local Boots, without any need to worry about adverse reactions. A typical facial for regular skin types includes exfoliation, moisturising massage, a deep cleansing facial mask (to clean your pores), and the application of a protective serum and under-eye gel to refresh and lift your skin. We recommend our Express Facial if you have normal skin and you’re short for time, but if you have all the time in the world go with our Pamper Me Facial for a little added luxury.
Facials for oily skin
If you have oily skin that is prone to outbreaks of acne, you’ll need a bit more careful about the facial treatments you choose. Traditional facials with oils and intensive moisturisers applied to the skin will clog pores and increase the oiliness of your skin, which could trigger more acne. The above is usually the case with young skin which is why we have designed a speciality Teen Facial. If you are an adult suffering with an oily complexion, our Essentially Beautiful Facial will be perfect for you.
Facials for combination skin
Combination skin has areas of both regular and oily skin types. We have to take care to make sure neither skin type is irritated. Again, we would recommend the Essentially Beautiful Facial – we tailor the treatment to suit your skins specific needs.
Facials to combat fine lines or wrinkles
For anti-ageing properties, facials leave the skin looking refreshed and healthy. More intensive treatments to remove lines, wrinkles, or even minor scarring include microdermabrasion or a chemical peel (which can reduce deeper wrinkles or scars).
