What is a Facial?

Women have been conscious of skincare for many centuries. However, the 1940s introduced Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein into the skincare industry. Many salons began to open and the age of the anti-aging treatments began.

In the 1950s, with the advent of movies and Hollywood, women were exposed to the glamour of the silver screen and became more concious of their appearance. It is around this time that many of the popular treatments and facials, still used today, were first introduced.

Facials cleanse, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin. They can also reduce blemishes, acne, dry skin, and wrinkles. The types of facials that will work best for you will depend on your skin type. These days, there are a variety of facial options on offer.

Below is a list of the more popular options:

Standard Facial

A standard facial consists of a cleanse, steam, and massage. It is good for maintaining a healthy skin all year round.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) Facial

Natural Products & Your Skin

Whatever you rub onto your skin will pull through and absorb into your body. There are many dangerous ingredients present in traditional skincare products. This is because there is currently no board that regulates and approves what is deemed as ‘safe’ ingredients.

Natural skincare products stay away from these dangerous hormone altering ingredients (especially phthalates and parabens). Natural products, like those in the Team Dr. Joseph range, will help your skin to look and feel healthy without jeopardising the health and safety of the rest of your body.
