Which type of Facial should you get?

Choosing the correct type of Facial for your skin can be daunting, especially if you’re new to the world of facials. To help you make an informed decision, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Identify your skin type: Before booking a facial, it’s essential to identify your skin type. Is your skin oily, dry, sensitive, or a combination? Knowing your skin type will help you choose a facial designed for your skin’s needs.
  2. Determine your skin concerns: Have acne-prone skin, fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation? Determining your skin concerns will help you choose a facial targeting those issues.
  3. Consider the ingredients: Look for facials that contain ingredients that are beneficial for your skin type and concerns. For example, if you have acne-prone skin, look for facials that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. If you want to brighten your complexion, look for facials that contain vitamin C or antioxidants.
  4. Research the spa: Research where you plan to get your Facial. Read reviews and check their website to see what facials they offer. Choosing a reputable hotel with high-quality products and experienced estheticians is essential.
  5. Consult with an esthetician: Schedule a consultation if you still need to decide which facial to choose. They can assess your skin and recommend the best Facial for your needs.

It’s important to note that not all facials are suitable for everyone. If you have sensitive skin or certain skin conditions, such as rosacea or eczema, it’s best to consult with a dermatologist before getting a facial.

What to Expect During a Facial?

Curious about what to expect is normal if you’ve never had a facial before. Here’s a general overview of what typically happens during a facial:

  1. Consultation: Your esthetician will start by asking you some questions about your skin type, concerns, and any allergies or sensitivities you may have. This is important to ensure the Facial is tailored to your needs.
  2. Cleansing: Your esthetician will cleanse your face using a gentle yet effective cleanser to remove any makeup, dirt, or impurities.
  3. Exfoliation: Depending on your skin type and concerns, your esthetician may use an exfoliating scrub or enzyme peel to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin.
  4. Steam: Your esthetician may use steam to help open up your pores and make it easier to extract
  5. Extractions: This step involves the removal of blackheads, whiteheads, and other clogged pores. Your esthetician will use special tools to extract any impurities from your skin gently. This step can be uncomfortable for some people, but it’s an essential part of the Facial to help prevent future breakouts.
  6. Massage: The next step is a relaxing facial massage, which can help improve circulation and lymphatic drainage. Your esthetician may use various massage techniques to help you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
  7. Mask: After the massage, your esthetician will apply a mask specifically formulated for your skin type and concerns. The show will be left on for a specified time to allow it to work its magic.
  8. Moisturizer: The final step is the application of a moisturizer to hydrate and protect your skin. Your esthetician may also apply an eye cream or lip balm if needed.

Throughout the Facial, your esthetician may also use specialized tools such as a steamer, LED lights, or ultrasonic devices to enhance the benefits of the Facial. The entire process usually takes around 60-90 minutes, depending on the type of Facial and the spa’s protocols.

It’s important to note that while facials can be incredibly beneficial for your skin, they can also be relaxing. Don’t be surprised if you drift off during the massage or feel more relaxed than usual. Many find that facials suit their skin, mental health, and overall well-being.


In conclusion, choosing the proper Facial for your skin type and concerns can help you achieve healthy and glowing skin. With so many facial options available, it can be overwhelming to make the right choice.
