Which Facial Is Right For You?

“I’ll have what she’s having”

Wouldn’t it be great if I had one product line that suited every skin type and fixed every skin condition, how easy life would be if we could all use the same products with no reaction or side effects and everything we disliked about I skin disappeared! Unfortunately, with all the different skin type and skin conditions, you will never find a product line that will be for all skin types and concerns.

For example, if I have pigmentation and dry skin, and you have diffused redness and dry skin, you would assume that we could both use the same product for dry skin, right? Wrong! While it would make sense, due to both skins being dry in natural oil flow, if we both used a product designed for dry skin, it will help my dry skin but not necessary my pigmentation, and if you have diffused redness you will most likely have a reaction to the product as it will be to strong for your skin. Or if both our concerns were to do with pigmentation but you had dry skin and I had oily skin, again a single product range may help both skins with pigmentation but is it going to be too reduce oil flow for a dry skin type or increase oil flow for an oily skin type?

Because skin types are not the same, we still need to focus on treating your skin type, and then skin conditions, however with technology getting better, we now have product that targets specific skin conditions that can be used along side products for varying skin types.

Facial Landscaping…

It is also important to note that not all treatments on offer are going to suit your skin right now, meaning your therapist isn’t convinced that your skin can handle the treatment today, but after a few months on your prescribed skincare and a couple of re-balancing facials it is something you can have. Take Lactic Peels and Microdermabrasion for example; if you have never used highly active skincare before and have dehydrated skin and you book in for a Lactic Peel, you run the risk of causing more damage to the skin like chemical burns (trust me I have had this and it’s no fun), and if you are getting one in Summer (not recommended) you leave yourself open to more pigmentation and premature aging. I will recommend products and treatments that will re-build your skin’s protective barrier and hydrate your skin first.

As for Microdermabrasion, this is the perfect treatment for reducing scars and evening out skin tone, but if you have active acne this can cause irritation and could cause the bacteria to spread which would be a huge bummer. I will recommend products and treatments that will help re-balance, absorb and gently cleans away the skin’s bacteria without stripping the skins natural oil, once the skin is in a good state we can move to scar reducing treatments.

While most beauty clinics will have a base range of facial treatments on offer, more often than not they will tailor a plan to suite your skin’s needs, which can mean you are on one set product line and facial type or you are on a combination of products from different lines and your facial is a mash up of other facials, or you are alternating between facials and product lines.

The most important thing to remember when it comes to skin care and achieving your desired result is; it takes planning, time (I recommend looking at it like a 3 month journey) and commitment (your skin can ‘purge’ and appear worse before it improves), so in the words of Rachael Hunter “It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen.”
