What is a hydrating facial?
Hydrating Facials are packed with water-rich properties. Our signature hydration treatments are aimed to restore water and PH levels in your skin. Changing weather conditions may affect your skin in many ways, such as lower humidity and promote dryness. The effects of dry skin are visible, making your skin less radiant, rough and sensitive.
Treatments used during our hydrating facial are formulated to help the skin retain as much moisture as possible. We use gentle exfoliation if needed and water-based ingredients to improve moisture retention in your skin. In addition, various sets of procedures such as algae masks, fruit jelly masks, hydra dermabrasion and classic facials are selected and personalized for your skin.
In addition to your daily skincare routine, you can opt for a classic facial to get a professional skincare analysis and superior results. You can also get it whenever you feel like pampering yourself. A Classic Facial is good for maintaining healthy skin and addressing specific skin conditions with your aesthetician.
Why does my skin get dehydrated?
In Canada, the climate pushes us to develop irritating skin habits. In winter, heaters are turned on, windows closed, and winter clothes are thick and rough. During the summer, sun exposure, excessive sweating and lack of water intake will dry out your skin even more. Factors such as these will contribute to dry and itchy skin, which is why you should maintain proper moisture levels with a hydrating facial. Please note that oily skin can also be a sign of dehydration.
What does a hydrating facial do?
The name says it all. A hydrating facial is intended to increase your skin’s ability to retain water and reduce the risk of water loss. If you are prone to dry skin, itchiness, flaky skin and a feeling of tightness, this is the facial you want. Hydrating facials are suitable for all skin types and are made to Cleanse, Tone, Exfoliate, hydrate, Massage, and Protect.
How does it work?
Hydrating facials typically have lengths of 30 minutes, 60 minutes or even 90 minutes, depending on your level of dryness. In addition, our Skincare Specialist will go over a selection of beauty treatments designed specifically for you during skin consultation.
In general, all facials begin with cleansing the skin to remove impurities, oil and dirt. A toner is then used to wipe off any leftover oils and prepare your skin for the facial treatment. Next, depending on your level of sensitivity, you will experience a process of exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and reveal a younger and healthier skin layer underneath.
Following that is a cocktail of hyaluronic acid serums that will nourish, hydrate your pores. Thus, increasing your skin’s water retention capabilities. Then, depending on which hydration facial, you choose different technologies that may be used as well.
What can you expect from a hydrating facial?
The hyaluronic acid-focused treatment will make your skin appear brighter and more radiant. Vitamins and nutrients contained in the formula will also make your skin healthier, allowing it to function correctly and regulate moisture levels. As a result, your skin tone will appear even, and dry patches or uneven texture will fade away. Also, hydrated skin is visibly smooth and soft to the touch. Benefits from hydrating facials include less oil production, fewer acne breakouts and less itchiness or dryness.
What professional skincare brand do we use?
