Why you should get a facial with Claire in Winter Park, Florida.
Not only is a facial relaxing due to the quiet environment and the relaxing music, but it is also extremely beneficial for your skin. Our brains generate alpha waves when we are in a state of relaxation or euphoria. These brain waves are beneficial for our emotional and physical health and for our skin, because they enhance our natural healing power. When did you last get a facial to enhance your natural healing power? Maybe it is time for you to take 45 minutes or an hour out of your day and treat yourself. Your skin will thank you for it!
As a skilled professional I will analyze your skin …
and customize the facial according to what YOUR skin needs. By using my hands and excellent products, as well as various machines I will nourish your skin with the love that it needs. The warmth from my hands and the constant massage movements around your face will bring a glow to your face. It makes the skin glow due to the circulation of the blood caused by professional massage movements and is finished with a gentle lymphatic technique that pushes all the waste and toxins into the lymphatic system, so the body can expel the waste naturally.
If a deep exfoliation is what you need then I will focus on using the correct exfoliating products and use the correct exfoliating technique with my hands or with a machine.
If I analyze during your facial that you have an increase in blood flow from the wonderful facial massage to your lovely face, causing redness and you are returning to work shortly afterwards, I will use a cooling device to balance your skin tone and colour. This cooling device will also close down the pores and gently erase puffiness which will inevitably reduce the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a cold one, but it works like magic!
What can a facial do for your skin?
Skin with a good complexion makes a woman look healthy and young, as well as enhancing the effect of makeup. While physical wellness is of course one factor affecting the condition of your skin, many hazards can ruin it’s clarity, such as dead skin cells clinging to the surface and thickening the skin. Dryness caused by UV rays, mental stress and lack of sleep also affect the clarity of the skin. If your skin is dry, this can lead to fine lines and wrinkles making you look older. Who wants to look older than they really are?
What to avoid to maintain a great complexion.
Try to avoid stress as much as possible. If you do have a stressful life try to incorporate exercise and meditation to lower your stress levels or to help you manage your stress better. Instead of grabbing that glass of wine or cigarette, go for a long walk in the fresh air to clear your head and sort your thoughts. Protect your skin by always wearing a sunscreen. Exfoliate at least twice a week and cut back on all the products you are using. Less is best! Give up smoking if you can as smoking leaves your skin dull, resulting in a sallow complexion. If you have any concerns about your lifestyle and how it might be affecting your skin, we can talk about them after your facial.
What can you go home with?
You can go home with some education on how to take care of your skin by buying better products or by me helping you use the products that you already have, but show you how to use them better! Ask yourself this question. When you apply your moisturizer or your cleanser do you apply with love and care, or do you just slap it on and go? Slapping on tells your skin you don’t care …. showing your skin you do care by being nice to it, will look back at you in the mirror with a “thank you glow”. I will show you how to apply your products so you can get the most out of them and I promise you, your skin will thank you for it.
Homework for my facial clients here in Winter Park, Florida.
I want you to go home and take a look at all of your skin care products that you have in your bathroom closet and bring them with you when you come in to see me for a facial. We will set aside some time during your consultation to look at them. If any of them have been in your dusty cabinet for over a year, I suggest you throw them out and still come in and see me for a facial and we can discuss starting afresh.
Your next assignment is to take a mirror and do the mirror test which is below. (sorry the picture is a bit lopsided!) If you don’t like what you see in your mirror when you do the 5 years from now … then you definitely need to come in and see me, so we can start turning that clock back!
Here is your past, your present and your future face!
