There are a variety of facial exfoliators such as scrubs, chemical peels, enzymes, and facial treatments. However, the best type of exfoliation for you depends on your skin type. For example, scrubs are better for oily skin, while chemical exfoliation is better for dry skin because it helps remove fine lines and wrinkles. For the body, try a full body scrub, shower gel, or dry brushing.

Exfoliating should be done at least once a week, but can be done more often if you do not have sensitive skin. It is important to be gentle in order to prevent damage to the skin, especially when using a scrub.

Skin Care Tips for Fall

Fall season means cooler weather, which affects the skin in different ways from warm weather. So in addition to changing your wardrobe for this season, consider also changing your skin care regimen and products.

Screenshot_87Though sunscreen should be used for every season, skin care for Fall needs an increase in moisturizers to help protect the skin. Other tips include:

  • For dry skin types, it’s a good time to switch to a hydrating option. For more oil-rich skin types, you can likely continue with your summer cleanser in the P.M., but may want to switch to a lighter cleanser in the A.M.
  • Use products with Vitamin C. When applied topically as a serum, it creates a beautiful glow and also helps brighten the skin. Best used in the morning, vitamin C also helps fend off free radicals in the environment that may otherwise cause damage to your skin.
  • One good option would be to put moisture back into the air. A humidifying system can help your skin remain supple. You can buy a system from your local drug store.
  • This will help protect your skin from moisture loss. Choose one that comes in an ointment form as it will contain 80% oil. Creams and lotions may tend to dry out the skin rather than keep it moisturized and soft. I’m not sure what you’re referring to here. When you say This will help protect your skin from moisture loss I’m assuming you are talking about the humidifier but then you mention an ointment.

Benefits of a Facial

_67052030_beauty_treatments_afpFacials are not only a great way to relax and pamper yourself, they also offer may benefits including healthier, more balanced skin, firming and rejuvenation as well as anti-aging and hydration.

There are several versions of the facial treatment that depend on the skin type and need of the client. For examples, there are collagen facials, paraffin facials, and even chocolate facials!  Choosing the correct facial for your skin type should depend on the advice of your aesthetic professional.

Most facial treatments include the following steps:

  • Cleanse:  After an aesthetician analyzes and addresses your skin type she will prep your skin with a double cleanse to create a clean canvas.
  • Exfoliate:  Next, steam will be used to open up the pores. A treatment is then applied to the skin that will exfoliate, release congestion and clarify and brighten the skin. Exfoliating the top layer of skin helps to reveal younger skin, as new skin cells are created in the dermis.
  • Extractions:  Extractions are then made if needed to rid your pores of any impurities and eliminate harmful bacteria which can cause acne.
  • Massage: An aesthetician will give you a facial massage and / or acupressure which stimulates your skin, encouraging blood flow and lymphatic drainage.
  • Mask: Depending on your skin type, an aesthetician will choose from a hydrating mask, clay based pore-minimizing and tightening mask, or a soothing mask to reduce redness.
