And with the festive season in full swing, there is no better excuse (not that you’d need one) to get some much-needed relaxation with a facial. With the late nights and back-to-back parties, your skin will thank you for this beauty ritual. A facial will not only unclog your blocked pores and exfoliate your skin but also help keep it hydrated and give it an extra glow.
A popular treatment, the gold facial includes 24-carat gold cream and/or gold gel. Most salons use both or either of these along with aloevera, wheat germ oil or sandalwood. Gold being a soft metal, it is easily absorbed by the skin and reduces fine lines. Gold facials are also touted to have revitalizing and rejuvenating effects that bring a glow to the skin. They have the ability to repair sun damage and help slow down melanin creation to prevent harmful tanning. Gold facials are good cleansers and can control pigmentation
Ideal for oily and combination skin types, pearl facials help get rid of tans and brighten up the skin. Pearls help nourish rejuvenate and beautify. Studies have shown that pearls allow the transfer of melanin to the skin surface, where it filters harsh UV rays to counteract damage caused by the sun. A pearl facial can give your skin a healthy radiance with an even color tone retaining much-needed moisture and revitalizing the skin.
This procedure leaves the skin firm, thoroughly cleansed, and gently exfoliated of accumulated impurities. This thoroughly relaxing treatment provides long-lasting results and focuses on getting rid of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, dull and congested skin, and other signs of ageing.
Before you rush out and book yourself a festive facial ritual, make sure it’s a good match for your skin type. The last thing you want is treatment that leaves you with unwanted blemishes - or maybe something even worse!
