What are Back Facials and Why would I want to get one? To Answer those Questions we pulled some tidbits from one of Victoria’s blogs called Back Facials ARE a thing you can read this full article below!

Who benefits from it?
Back facials are for anyone who is looking to keep healthy looking skin, but here is a list of people they would be very beneficial for.

  • Those who want to feel deeply relaxed
  • Those who experience breakouts on their back, neck, and shoulders
  • Those with scarring from burns (or other more intense scarring)
  • Those with dry, itchy skin
  • Those with inflammation
  • Even those who want to keep healthy skin

What does a back facial consist of?
Back facials are very similar to face facials in the way that they follow a very similar protocol.

The service includes:

Dry brushing to remove those dead, dry skin cells
Cleanser that is specifically for you skin type
An exfoliation to get rid of pore clogging debris
A lovely back massage (everyone loves a back rub, don’t they?)
A treatment mask to help your skin receive the maximum benefit
Healing and restoring cream to hold in the skin’s moisture
This service also includes extractions (if needed), a steamer to help open the pores and make the service even more relaxing; and a scalp, neck, and arm massage.

Why you should get a Chocolate Facial!

Facials are great for your skin as they help to clear the skin of impurities and give your skin a fresh new look! Many people look past the fact that their skin needs quite a bit of attention. It’s time to let your skin receive the feeling of being renewed.

The Chocolate facial is great for the month of Valentine’s. I mean who doesn’t like getting chocolate for Valentine’s day? The difference with this chocolate compared to the lovely and tasty Dove chocolates your lover might be getting you is that this is ALL FOR YOUR SKIN! Finally! Your skin gets to absorb the smooth and tastiness of the chocolate that you love!

This facial starts off with a cleanse that then leads into the exfoliation process. This is where the smells of the delicious chocolate start to come into play. The Chocolate facial scrub gently exfoliates the skin to create a healthy glow to the skin by removing dead skin cells and debris from pores. As you take in the great smells you get to relax as you receive a scalp massage. Once the exfoliant is removed, you receive a facial massage with a delicious smells of lemon meringue pie (Mmmm) just to add to your “sweet” experience.

Next is the best part! Hopefully you don’t get too hungry as the chocolate mask sits on for 10 minutes and you take in the yummy smells of chocolate, not to mention the added pleasureful smells of the lemon oil. The chocolate mask brings all the uncontrolled stomach growls as it provides a rosy glow and softens the skin. It contains Tamarind which is a natural exfoliant that contains tartaric acid. This helps to give a little extra oomph to the exfoliation to help you shine bright with your healthy skin and then chocolate (the tasty part) increases microcirculation so that the skin can absorb the fruit acids. After the facial is complete you will leave with the smell of sweetness still lingering.

I, Victoria, am giving these facials at an unbeatable price of only $40! Book your appointment and you’ll understand what all the fuss is about. You’ll get to be the tasty treat instead of the yummy chocolates taking all the credit! Hurry and book today before this unpassable deal is over!

Skin Fact Quiz – The truth may surprise you!

As part of my apprenticeship I get quizzed all the time.  I read facts, myths, and theories all day.  Today, I thought I would put together one of my own for you!  Here are several facts and myths that I found interesting.  One of the four statements below is true; the others are false.  Take a guess, which one is true?

  1. Shaving makes hair grow back thicker.
  2. Eating chocolate causes acne.
  3. The higher the SPF, the better the protection.
  4. Your skin makes up 16% of your body weight, up to 20 pounds.

 

ANSWERS:

If you guessed that shaving makes hair grow back thicker, you are…incorrect. After shaving the blunt hair growing back looks thicker, but it’s the same size as it was before. If you decide to try waxing, the entire follicle is removed. The hair coming back grows in different cycles, making it appear thinner. Your hair will also take longer to grow back than shaving.

Now, if you guessed that chocolate causes acne you are, wrong again. Sebum getting clogged in the pores of your skin is what actually causes acne, not chocolate so you don’t have to give up chocolate completely for clear skin. Eating dark chocolate is actually beneficial for your skin because it contains antioxidants.

The higher the SPF the better the protection, that’s gotta be it right? Nope sorry! The SPF refers to the amount of protection the product offers from only UVB rays. An SPF of 15 screens out 93% of UVB light. An SPF of 30 screens out 97%. Anything higher than that doesn’t really do anything more. You need protection from both UVA and UVB rays; you should look for a broad spectrum sunscreen which protects from both UVA and UVB rays.

Hard to believe that skin weighs 20 pounds isn’t it? But that is the correct answer! Skin makes up about 16% of your total body weight and is about 22 square feet, which is about the size of a standard doorway. Skin is the largest organ in your body which is why we need to take care of it.

 

Were you just as surprised as I was?  There are so many interesting things about skin, which is why I decided to become an esthetician. It’s always good to do your research so you can decide what to believe and what not to!
