Truly, anyone can benefit from a facial, no matter what the condition of your skin. Although styles of treatment vary from place to place, I have listed some of the many benefits you can enjoy from the facials I offer at Carolyn Ash Skin Care.
Facials are deep cleansing. Initially the face is washed with gentle surface cleansers before it is analyzed to determine the course of treatment for your particular skin. Then, toward the end of the facial, a clay mask is placed on the face along with a compress presoaked in a special emulsion of diluted essential oils. This mask helps to draw impurities to itself to further cleanse the pores. Clay also stimulates, therefore bringing in oxygen to feed and nourish the cells. Clay is also a very calming element. It can help soothe irritations and temporarily flush out redness in the skin.
Facials are exfoliating. This is especially true of my facial at Carolyn Ash Skin Care. First I use the Yonka Gommage. This gel will slough off or remove much of the outer, dead epidermal cells, leaving the texture of your skin smoother and more refined. Then comes the Micropeel. This causes a slight dilation in the capillaries, the blood network to the skin on the face, which brings in more oxygen to nourish the cells. The Micropeel also decomposes another layer of skin, so it too is exfoliating.
Facials are hydrating. Throughout the treatment, many nourishing and moisturizing ampoules and cremes are massaged into the skin. Even problem/oily skins need to be well hydrated with high-quality vegetal oils and essential oils, which are contained in the Yonka products.
Finally, facials are relaxing. All of us encounter stress in our lives and we need to balance this with what I call "anti-stress activities." Whether it be a relaxing tub full of bubbles or finding quiet time to read a book, balance is the key to health and well-being. A facial offers you fantastic relaxation benefits. When you leave the treatment room, your skin should be very clean, well-exfoliated, super-hydrated, smooth to the touch with a healthy, well-nourished glow.
