One of the best things about the recent self-care craze is the totally awesome skin care. I mean, what’s not to love about doing things to care for yourself? Especially if those things result in glowing, radiant skin! We’re taking a look at some of the hottest trends making faces look fabulous and feel good!
We all know hydrating is essential for healthy glowing skin. But the Hydra-Facial delivers skin-loving hydration from the outside in. This 4-step facial begins with cleansing your face with a special wand that opens your pores and gets rid of dead skin cells at the surface. An acid peel is applied next to exfoliate to a deeper level (a gentle peel that doesn’t burn). The 3rd step involves removing all that face-waste with a suction tube, before the final step — infusing a rich serum full of collagen and antioxidants back into your skin. The result – supple, radiant skin!
IPL / Photofacial
Ahh, the power of light! This facial uses intense but gentle, pulsed light to treat brown spots, broken blood vessels and other pigmentation issues. Some patients compare the treatment to the sensation of snapping a small rubber band against the skin. Treatments are often done in multiple sessions for the best results and take around 20 minutes each.
Vitamin C Facial
If you thought Vitamin C was just to keep the sniffles at bay, think again. This 60-minute treatment starts with cleansing the face and neck and applying a steam treatment to open the pores. A high-frequency wand kills bacteria and a Vitamin C mask is applied that also contains collagen and other skin-boosting ingredients. The facial finishes with a polishing and soothing application with a liquid nitrogen wand leaving skin rejuvenated and glowing.
Himalayan Salt Facial
Another puzzling facial trend that seems to defy logic is the new salt facial. Most of us would never consider treating our faces with salt to replenish the skin. But the salt facial incorporates ultrasonic massage to infuse skin with powerful nutrients and finishes with LED light therapy and minimizes acne scarring, fine lines and uneven skin tone. Finely processed Himalayan salt is gently rubbed over the face first for a pure detoxifying exfoliation.
Let’s face it, doing things that feel good and make your skin look great are just plain awesome!
