A facial is a beauty treatment for the face. There are many styles of facial available, and each brand describe them in a slightly different way. Facials use a variety of products, massage techniques and equipment to give cleaner, healthier, more radiant-looking skin.  Most facials will cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturise the skin. A good facial will leave the skin looking and feeling better, but should also leave the client feeling relaxed and refreshed, and the experience should make them feel totally pampered.

What are the Benefits of a Beauty Facial?

  • to clean and smooth: sloughing away dead skin cells with an exfoliator, and deep-cleaning pores with a cleanser, helps prevent acne and dull skin, and leaves skin feeling smoother and softer
  • to balance and moisturise: hydrating skin with the right facial oil, serum and/or moisturiser for your skin type will nourish your skin and balance over-dry and over-oily patches
  • to target specific skin concerns: healing and brightening products and toning techniques can be used to make your skin look clearer, firmer, fresher and lovelier!
