What is a facial?
At Angelic Beauty, all facials are customized to your skin condition and your skin care concerns. To best serve you, we ask that you fill out a consultation card. This helps us to understand your health, skin care routine, products used and any specific skin care concerns you may have.
Using this client-specific knowledge every step of the way, we can tailor the perfect facial for you.
We begin the facial by cleansing your skin and taking off any make-up. We then perform a thorough skin analysis that helps us to determine the condition of your skin and the products best suited for your skin type.
Next we apply an exfoliating mask customized to your skin condition and your skin care interests. In most cases, steam is used while this mask is on. The benefit of exfoliation and steam is to help the skin shed unwanted dead skin cells, stimulate cell turnover and soften the skin for extractions. Depending on the type and strength of exfoliants used, this process can also help to reduce wrinkles and unwanted sun damage, improve the texture and dryness or oiliness of your skin, and decrease congestion and breakouts in your skin.
For individuals with acne-prone skin or breakout issues, the exfoliation process will help soften the skin so the impactions are more easily removed. Once the exfoliating mask is applied, we help your body to release stress through massage of your shoulders, neck and head.
Once you are relaxed, and the exfoliating mask is removed, your skin is ready for extractions. Extractions are a process that removes blackheads, whiteheads and pustules from the skin. We are as gentle as possible in this process so we don't damage the skin.
The next step is to apply a second mask that is appropriate for your skin condition, unique skin care concerns and how many extractions were needed. This mask can be soothing, hydrating, and beneficial for aging, acne-prone or oily skin. If necessary, we will use different masks to address different parts of your skin, because not all areas of the skin are the same.
Depending on the extent of the service you have requested, we will conduct additional massage at this point to continue the relaxation and soothing of your body and soul.
As a final step to invigorate your skin, we will apply toner, moisturizer, sunscreen and an eye cream. You will leave feeling refreshed and relaxed with healthier more radiant skin.
