Put your best face forward

Having been teased with a taste of summer, it’s time to start thinking about your summer skin.

Isn’t it every girl’s dream to have beautiful skin? A professional facial could be just the answer to clearer, healthier, beautiful skin to take you into the warmer months. So, in this week’s blog we are going to talk to you about the benefits of taking time out now and again for a professional facial.



One to one skin consultation

This is one hour where you can completely talk over all your skincare concerns with an expert, resulting in a lifetime of happiness. The therapist will analyse your skin, giving you their professional advice. During the consultation your individual skin needs are identified, your skin type determined and suggestions are made for the best products to use for your home skincare routine. This is your opportunity to ask plenty of questions that you have been curious about.



After your skin has been assessed, exfoliation is the next important part of a facial. The exfoliation will be specifically tailored towards your individual skin type. It is important as it smooths the skin, increases cellular turnover and softens aging lines, resulting in all-over, even-toned skin.


Cleansing of blackheads and clogged pores

Your therapist will begin a skilled method to gently extract black heads and clogged pores, without causing damage to your skin. It is usually difficult to eliminate blackheads at home as the majority of home care products only help to reduce clogged pores. It takes a professional therapist to properly prepare and soften the skin before manual extractions can take place in a safe and effective way.


Intensive hydration

All skin types need lots of hydration to survive. It does not matter if you have oily, dry or sensitive skin. It is imperative that you keep your skin hydrated in order to achieve healthy skin. Every skin type is different. Hydrated skin is healthy skin and a facial will help to regulate the correct moisture level for whatever skin type you may be.


Increasing blood flow

Skin becomes more damaged and unhealthy when the blood circulation slows down. Slow blood circulation leads to aging, resulting in dull, tired-looking skin. One important factor of a facial is to massage the face. This, along with the warm steam, helps increase the blood flow bringing new nutrients to the skin and resulting in a young, radiant glow on the surface of the skin.



Stress release and time out

We all need to take time out now and again for ourselves. We tend to spend a lot of time caring for others but it is important to take a couple of hours to yourself now and again. When seeking time that you don’t have to share with anyone, a facial is a great choice. It’s time just for you and gives you time to re-energise and clear your mind. Facials provide loads of benefits for your skin but they are also extremely relaxing and give you time to unwind physically and psychologically. Research has proved that stress can lead to unhealthy skin, so why take the risk? What better way to eliminate stress and promote healthy skin than treating yourself to a facial?



The exciting news is that VOYA facials will soon be available in New Zealand!
