Seven Skincare Sins & how to solve them: Sin 5 – Not having facials

Why having regular facials is important

There are so many products on the market, ranging from tonics and oils to skin wipes and buffing sponges, it can be difficult to find cleansers that are just right. Booking in for a facial will remove this pesky problem. Not only will you be able to have your skin assessed and deep cleansed, the therapist can help you monitor it over a period of months, and give you tips for achieving flawless skin. They will also advise you on what products to take home. Dermalogica Skin Kits contain products for a wide variety of skin types, meaning there will be a kit to suit you.

How to read the Signs
• Your skin may be oily with spots
• Your skin may be dry and crepey due to overexposure
• Open pores and blackheads appear regularly
• Fine lines appear around the eyes and mouth
• Skin starts to sag around the jawline
• Eyelids start to droop
• Skin generally looks dull, lacks vitality and is losing its natural elasticity
• Anxiety about your skin may have set in – which can make the problem worse.

Saintly Solution – your guide to a flawless complexion
Start by booking your first facial. Your skin care therapist will be able to give you a thorough assessment (sometimes these are free!) and recommend a course of treatments. You can discuss how often you ought to be having facials – it all depends on your individual skin.

A prescriptive facial, otherwise known as a classic facial, would normally last anything from 60-90 minutes. The therapist will use high-quality salon products approved by an official beauty institute.
Typical features of a facial include: Cleanse under steam; facial/skin analysis; extractions (blackhead removal); facial massage; masque; tone; moisturise.

Follow the advice of your therapist once you get home, and adopt a daily skin care regime using products that have been recommended especially for you. As you get to know how your skin behaves, you will have a better idea of how to halt and prevent breakouts and other problems away from the beauty salon.
