The vast range of facial treatments and facial skincare products available in today's marketplace will cater for almost all requirements. From facials, masks and exfoliation through to aromatherapy you don't need to look far to find the key to helping you look and feel your best. With so many facial treatments and skincare products / services available however, it is understandable that you may be overwhelmed in selecting the right treatments.
Visiting your nearest beauty salon and a consultation with a professional beauty therapist will eliminate your worries. Not only will a range of facial skincare treatments be available all in one place, but also by examining your skin to identify its overall condition and to determine your unique skin type, the beauty consultant will be able to tailor the products and services specifically to you.
Natural glowing skin is best complemented by a bright smile, and a healthy head of hair. If your teeth are not at their pearly best, and your hair seemingly unmanageable, opt for a tooth whitening treatment, and a fresh new hairstyle. What better way to complete your facial treatment, than with a make up consultation? Using makeup is a personal choice, but a make up consultant will be able to offer tips on application techniques, and suggest hues and tones that will freshen and update your new look.
To keep your skin looking healthy between treatments, it is essential to pay attention to diet and exercise, and to follow a simple at home routine twice daily. The basic steps for helping your skin look its best are: cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing.
Cleansing is essential to avoid acne and other problems. Using a mild skin cleanser wash your face twice daily. Ensure that makeup is removed prior to sleeping so that the skin is able to breathe overnight. Follow with a non-alcohol based toner that will remove any residue of cleanser, and close any pores that were opened during deep cleansing. Using an exfoliant once a week will remove dead skin cells, and rejuvenate the skin, helping to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Follow with a moisturizer to hydrate the skin. By selecting a moisturizer containing a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher, you will provide the skin with the necessary barrier to protect it from the sun's harmful rays. Finally, one of the best, cheapest and simplest ways to help your skin along is to drink plenty of water every day, get lots of rest and minimise alcohol and nicotine consumption.
