Facials for Skin of All Types

By: Rachel Broune

A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin to promote clear, well-hydrated skin. A facial is the second most popular spa service after massage. Ideally, get a facial every four to six weeks because that's how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes. You may need it more frequently if you are trying to clear up a case of acne, especially at the beginning.

Decide for a facial which is noncomedogenic, unscented oil and soap free versatile facial cleanser for the proper cleansing that is the basis of a successful skin care regime. There are different skin types such as:

Normal Skin
Mature Skin
Simple Dry Skin
Oily Skin
All facials begin with an in-depth skin analysis and personalized advice for proper treatment and care.
