Facial treatments can be invigorating, refreshing, and relaxing. If you regularly go for a facial treatment at a spa or salon, it's fun to switch it up every once in a while and try a different kind of facial than the one you usually opt for. A unique type of facial, known as the Hydrafacial, is sure to leave your skin clean, exfoliated, and refreshed. It circulates water and rejuvenating ingredients over your skin for gentle results. Here are three reasons to consider replacing your regular facial with a Hydrafacial this month.
Your skin will be less red.
As wonderful as standard facials can be, they often leave your skin red and puffy for at least a few hours afterwards. This might be an issue if you plan on heading to an event -- or even work -- afterwards. Since the Hydrafacial is so gentle and uses a mixture of antioxidants to soothe the skin, you won't notice much, if any, redness afterwards. It's fine to apply your makeup immediately after your treatment, so you can look your best when going to an event or back to the office.
The facial offers exfoliation, unclogged pores, and more.
Most other facials are designed to treat one problem or another. But the Hydrafacial occurs in several steps, each of which addresses a different skin problem. The first step circulates water over your skin, helping to loosen dead skin cells and exfoliate with a gentle brush-like device. Then, you'll have an extraction, during which a suction-like device gently removes the material that's been clogging your pores. Whether you have dry skin, acne, or a little of both, this multi-step process will address it all.
It hydrates your skin naturally without oils.
Some facial procedures involve applying oil-based moisturizers to your skin. While this works well for some people, it can lead to clogged pores for others -- especially after your pores have just been opened and cleared with the facial. The Hydrafacial procedure moisturizes the face with water-based ingredients and antioxidants like vitamin C and E, so you don't have to worry about re-clogged pores or a slick, oily face the next day.
Hydrafacial treatments are very refreshing and enjoyable, and they're becoming increasingly common in spas and salons. You'll emerge fresh-faced and ready to face the world. Talk to your aesthetician to learn more about this type of facial and whether it's right for you.
