If lockdown has taught us anything, it’s the importance of self-care. We’ve noticed an increase in demand for our beginners facial course.

Why a Beginners Facial Courses?

By undertaking a beginners facial course, you will learn everything about the skin! From the theory of skin to understanding how to analyse and treat different skin types.

There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all when it comes to facial treatments. Everyone wants a healthy, glow and, knowing what your skin requires will help. 

The Different Skin Types Learnt about on a Beginners Facial Course

Skin Types Learnt about on a Beginners Facial Course

Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, then you know the difficulties of keeping it moisturised. This skin type is lacking in natural lipids and oils, which leads to dehydration and flaky skin.

Exfoliation is key to removing flaky skin! A facial that incorporates gentle exfoliation will benefit you immensely, with increased circulation and smoother skin. Exfoliate gently though, to not irritate your skin!

Once you’ve exfoliated, hydrate your skin with essential oils that penetrate deep. Once your facial is complete, say hello to smooth skin.

Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you probably read the dry skin part and thought I wish. Oily skin produces more oil than needed, which can block pores leading to acne. 

A facial that incorporates a chemical exfoliant such as glycolic acid will help penetrate the pores, removing excess oil. Deep cleanse are needed every so often with oily skin but not too often that you strip your skin of natural oils. Stripping your skins of oils will cause you to have oilier skin.

Combination Skin

When you have skin that is both oily and dry, others might think you have it all! In reality, it’s harder to treat. 

Microdermabrasion facials work great to gently remove excess dirt and oil across the t-zone. Finish the facial off with a hydrating mask to balance the skin’s natural PH. By the end, you should have a face that feels smooth and hydrated all around.

Sensitive Skin

People with sensitive skin like to stay away with facials as they can aggravate the skin. However, it doesn’t have to be so! You can still enjoy a facial whilst being gentle on the skin. Facial products that have enzymes are a great choice for exfoliation, without irritating the skin. Avoid products that have fragrances, opting for natural and organic ingredients instead! 

Mature Skin

Maturer skin types can be all of the above. As skin ages, cell production slows down and, the skin begins to lose elasticity. The lack of elasticity leads to wrinkles and fine lines. Those with mature skin should opt for treatments enriched with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to brighten the complexion. Vitamin E and collagen are brilliant ingredients for anti-ageing facials and help tighten the skin resulting in younger-looking skin. Those with mature skin may want to concentrate on areas such as the forehead, the eyes and mouth area.
