We all desire smooth skin, and this can be hard to achieve with our busy lifestyles. In between the stresses of work, maintaining a family and a social life, and balancing everything else life has to offer, we can lose sight of our skin.
One thing that helps our skin incredibly and is underrated are skin treatments and facials. There are many on the market and it can be hard to see which ones are right for you.
Facial treatments are great way to unclog pores and rejuvenate your skin by making it appear smoother. By deeply cleansing your skin, the facial can reach deeper layers of your skin clearing toxins, oil build up and dirt that may be trapped underneath your skin.
Facial treatments are also great for preventing premature ageing. Facials can help to repair damage to the skin and the treatments can enhance the production of collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Going through the process of skin treatments requires massaging of the face. This will stimulate the muscles across your face and relax you in the process, which is overall for a youthful look to your visage.
A skin treatment that we would highly recommend is the Ozmedica Dermasweep skin rejuvenation treatment. This treatment provides an even coloured, glow to your skin and gets rid of any black, white, or yellow heads you may have! This is a bit of a process treatment but worth it. It starts off with a microdermabrasion exfoliation followed by a circulation treatment and then hydrating infusion and massage. You can also get certain targeted processes in between this routine such as extractions for any congestions or any other issues that the beautician may perceive. The treatment feels like a vacuum system that sucks the skin removing the dead layers and then hydrating the skin with hyaluronic acid.
The microdermabrasion helps to renew your skin tone and texture. It improves the appearance of sun damage winkles, fine lines and spots due to sun or acne. The applicator has an abrasive surface which gently exfoliates the skin removing the dead cells. It is extremely safe and can be used on most skin types and colours.
Massages are also great for the skin, and in particular a lymphatic massage. Although some people think this is for certain skin conditions or after cosmetic surgery, a lymphatic massage can be great for the regular skin as well. The technique uses light pressure and specific motions to gently drain excess fluid. It mirrors the circulatory system and defends it from infection. Because the lymphatic massage plays a role in the immunity and healing in general, it can help your skin from puffiness, acne, dryness, dullness and even skin sensitivity. Lymphatic massage is a good way to end a facial treatment and to restore the wellness to the skin.
A big part of smooth skin as well is hydration. One ingredient that we consider as godsend is hyaluronic acid. This is a sugar that is already found in our skin that holds water to keep our skin looking hydrated and plump. As we get older however, the amount of the acid that our body holds decreases. There are ways we can stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid in our bodies including eating fruits and vegetables with a lot of antioxidants and protect the skin from inflammation. Another way is to use a hyaluronic acid product to restore the acid in our body. By using this on your skin, it brings the moisture to the surface of the skin and can keep your skin moisturised for the entire day. It also improves the skin’s elasticity. Other ingredients it could be paired with are retinols, vitamins and other acids. Picking the right product however can be hard. The molecule is often times too large to effectively deliver hydration deep into skin layers, so maybe consult reviews first before purchasing a product.
These treatments, both in clinic and at home are pain free and will leave your skin feeling squeaky clean and smooth. Having a good skin regime along with some good diet and healthy exercise regimen, you will be glowing in no time!
