Winter is the best time to try a facial and that’s a fact! Going from warm interiors to cold air and icy winds is detrimental to your skin, so getting the right treatment will ensure your skin will look rejuvenated and glowing whatever the weather. Take a look at all the benefits from a winter facial:

The facial technique
Helping to counteract the effects of winter is the main reason to indulge in a winter facial. Your treatment will comprise of:

Dead skin cells can clog pores and leave skin feeling rough. Exfoliating is a means of stimulating your skins natural renewal process as it removes the dry skin. Depending on your skin condition and type your therapist will choose either a mechanical or chemical exfoliant. Mechanical methods rub away dead skin cells using a slightly abrasive scrub or cream cleanser, whilst the chemical way uses enzymes to unstick the bonds between the skin cells, allowing them to fall away.

Deep Cleansing
A deep cleanse will target any specific problems such as fine lines and dehydration, and can be undertaken with steam, extractions, facial massage and facial masks.

The last stage of your facial will be the application of a moisturiser often containing sun cream that’s suitable for your skin type and that will keep your skin protected during the cold months.

Types of facial
There are many types of winter facial specials available during the festive season which will keep your skin toned, moisturised, and rejuvenated from the effects of cold temperatures and harsh winds. These include:
