The Effect

The effects of a facial come from the thorough cleansing of the face, removal of dead skin cells, and moisturizing, which produces beautiful and glowing skin. Facials can treat some facial problems like acne and dark spots, and can also tone the skin and restore skin color. Facials are not only known as a cleansing procedure but also as a pampering and relaxing treatment.

The Procedure

The facial begins with the cleansing of the face using steam followed by a gentle scrub. It is then resumed with another creamy cleanser and a massage by a soft rotating electric brush, and at times, even a face mask. What facials basically do is remove the dirt and dead skin cells on the epidermis or skin surface. Facials are done using steam for two reasons. One, it helps the skin absorb the facial cream better. And second, it softens whiteheads and blackheads for easy removal later on. The facial massage helps in the circulation of blood that aids in the removal of toxins and waste from the body. The massage also helps in relaxing the facial muscles which is important in delaying the appearance of wrinkles. A facemask is then used to tone and clarify the skin, and at times, treat dry and acne-ridden skin.
