There are different kind of facials for different purposes and skin types. While de-tan facial helps remove sun tan mostly for oily skin, gold radiance facial suits all skin types, say experts.
Bharti Taneja, director of Alps Beauty Clinic and Academy, and Richa Singh, CEO at Bigstylist, an online portal which provides at-home beauty and grooming services, lists types of facials that you may try according to your skin type.
» De-tan facial: De-tan facials suit oily skin that gets sun-tanned. The creams used for this facial cut the melanin on the skin, rendering immediate de-tan results.
» Diamond facial: This facial is ideal for special occasions, and suits dry, oily as well as combination skin types. This facial is mostly chosen for wedding, parties or festivals. The fine dust massage cream used for this facial reduces signs of aging, acne as well as lends a whitening effect to the skin.
» Aromatherapy facial: The aromatic oils used in aroma therapy facial have potent curative and permeating ability. Experts analyze skin type and accordingly suggest an oil which when blended with base oils show unique set of beneficial properties.
Aroma of these oils when inhaled work positively on emotions and cause physical and psychological responses like stress relieving, overcoming depression, energizing and enhancing mood.
» Collagen facial: Collagen is a natural protein which has the ability to get absorbed and hold moisture in skin. This vital protein makes 70 percent of the skin but is lost as we age, thus causing wrinkles. A Collagen facial replenishes this important protein to provide texture and resilience to skin.
» Photo facial: This kind of facial is the latest, safe, non-invasive and comprehensive treatment which uses light and treats various skin disorders like wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, coarse skin, large pores and blemishes.
» Gold radiance facial: This facial suits all skin types. The end result of this facial is a yellowish gold glow that is ideal for brides as well as women who have to face strong lights that are usually warm white in color.
» Skin lightening facial: This facial is the most effective one for visibly lightening the skin tone. It is mostly preferred for dry skin, as the creams and masks used for this facial are all herbal in nature.
» Wine facial: Red wine acts as an anti-oxidant which is twenty times more effective than vitamin C and fifty times more than vitamin E. Application of red wine improves moisture content, skin elasticity, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
It increases levels of vitamin C within the cells which has an anti-wrinkle effect. Red wine acid also dilutes the pigment and promote skin metabolism.
» Ultra hydrating watermelon facial: Beat the summer heat with this ultra-hydrating watermelon facial especially created for the heat fatigued skin. Enriched with water infused extracts it will magically sink into your skin leaving it with revived and refreshed feel.
» Sensiglow facial: This type of facial is recommended for sensitive skin, the reason being the cream used for the facial does not include granules that harm the epidermis, as a regular exfoliator used for other facials ruptures the epidermis and visibly harms those with sensitive skin.
» Anti-ageing facial: This facial is a great choice for women in the age group of 35-50 years. Mostly for combination and normal skin types, the mask used for this facial helps in lifting the skin, reduce traces of wrinkles and skin sagging as well.
