How to Do Facial Treatments
Facial treatments are not only relaxing for people, but are also great for the skin. Spas and beauty parlors provide professional facial treatment to their clients to help them in reaping its benefits. If people don’t have the time to go to these places or don’t want to spend money, they can perform facial treatments at home as well. The atmosphere and products used in the facial can easily be duplicated. The only difference that might exist is that of technique. They aren’t something that people do on a regular basis, but it is an excellent way to treat and pamper yourself. A facial treatment can be exchanged one with a friend where you do theirs and they will do yours.
The first thing that people need to do is gather the products that will be needed for performing the facial treatment. The products that are usually required are listed as follows:
- Facial cleanser
- Exfoliation gel
- Anti-aging creams
- Clay mask
- Small towels
- Wash cloths
- Scented candles
- Crock pot
You also need to create the right atmosphere in order to achieve the full effect of the facial treatment. This means lighting up a room with scented candles and dimming the lights and also playing easy listening music. Wash cloths and towels should be dampened and then rolled up and placed in the heated crock pot as they will be used later on the face. The order that’s mentioned above should be followed for using the products. This means the face has to be cleansed first with the cleanser.
After it has been cleansed, the face needs to be exfoliated and then should be steamed with towels. Now, it is time to use the anti-aging cream for massing the face. Only the fingertips should be used for massaging the face and they should be used only in gentle and circular upward movements. Hair should be kept clear off the face. The anti-aging cream should then be removed from the face and the mask should then be applied. Some time is required for allowing the mask to dry and then wash cloths are then utilized for removing it.
The skin pores are opened during the facial so the toner is used for closing up them up. After that, a light moisturizer has to be applied on the skin for restoring moisture, relieving any dryness and to easing any tightness that might exist in the skin. Usually these facial treatments are performed on a massage table in spas and parlors. However, a couch or bed will also suffice when these treatments are being performed at home. Flat lying lounge chairs can also be used by people, but foot stools are needed with them. Roll-away beds and cots are also some alternatives that can be used for facial treatments. As long as the products are applied correctly, people will be able to have glowing and healthy faces after the facial treatment has been completed. What’s more is that they will not have to pay for the services.
