How do facials delay the signs of ageing How do facials delay the signs of ageing?

There is no denying that facials should be an important part of our monthly beauty ritual. But before heading to the salon it is essential to understand which facial suits your skin and the weather. We are here to tell you just that and more. Yes, a day at the spa and salon is the best treat one can give to oneself for that much needed pampering and rejuvenation. There are two reasons one should get regular facials, one is the aesthetic benefits that are external and the other one is the physiological and psychological. So these treatments not only improve the beauty of your skin but also take the stress off your face, neck and shoulders.

Benefits of a facial in winter:

As a part of your facial ritual, a professional cleanses, exfoliates and tones your skin thus helps in protecting and preserve youthfulness of your skin. As a facial nourishes the skin by locking in moisture, the signs of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles and under eye bags are reduced and delayed which makes the skin soft, supple and healthier. Moisturizing is done in different steps of cleansing, massaging, hydrating face packs, and nourishing masks. So the skin and muscles get toned, which preserves firmness and elasticity. It also improves blood circulation, strengthens the supportive tissues and improves the skin’s resilience. It induces relaxation and helps reduce stress and fatigue.

Cleansing and exfoliation:

Your makeup is removed first and then a creamy hydrating cleanser is used to remove dirt, toxins and cellular debris and to renew the skin.


A cream massage product is then used to nourish the dehydrated and dry skin. Aromatherapy oils can also be combined in this step that will help stimulate circulation and soften the signs of aging that are common in dry skin.

The Power Mask:

The Mask that is applied in this step acts as a seal, which pushes in all the ingredients from the treatment into your skin and seal the moisture and nutrients into the skin. The ultra-rich moisture and the other ingredients will nourish, and transform dry and unhealthy skin.

Keep in mind
  • Get a facial done every 5-6 weeks
  • The facial you choose should have hydrating ingredients at all steps of the facial.
  • Hydrating cleanser, exfoliation, moisture mask, steaming and lastly moisturization.
  • Certain dry skin triggers to avoid, like hot baths and showers.
  • If you happen to have oily skin, see to it that beta hydroxyl acid or alpha hydroxyl acid is used so that excess oil flow problem is tackled.
  • Those with sensitive skin should stay away from fragrance-based ingredients which can lead to eruptions.

A facial in between winter and summer also will help ease your skin into the hot summer weather.
