You need two things to get a great facial in Ottawa: a skilled esthetician and the right products. When you put your face into the hands of a professional massage and skin care specialist, you’ll be amazed at how great you feel both during and after your Ottawa facial experience.
Personally, the face massage is the best part. You’ll feel incredibly relaxed and content; like a mini-getaway where you can turn off your brain and focus on nothing but the soothing sounds of the spa music, delicious smells of the creams, and the tingly waves of stress leaving your body. Many people get facials for no other reason than the great feeling they get from being pampered.
Of course, there are many other benefits to getting a facial in Ottawa. You’d be surprised (and possibly disgusted) by how much pollution, dirt and grease is absorbed by your skin every day. Our harsh Ottawa winters also wreak havoc on our skin, causing irritation, dryness and redness.
A facial helps keep your skin moisturized and gives you a deep cleanse by opening up your pores and allowing for the removal of dead skin and toxins. In addition, expanding your pores makes it a breeze (in most cases) to pop those pesky blackheads and whiteheads, and reduce acne. The whole process also improves blood circulation, which makes your skin cells very happy – so much so that your face will glow!
As I mentioned, the second thing you need for a good facial is the right products. The last thing you want is to counter the benefits of a facial by using second-rate products that irritate your skin or clog your pores. When looking for the right spa, ask about their products and keep an eye out for brands like Aveda salon products.
Aveda salon products are based on flower and plant essences, which are safer for your skin and enable your skin to absorb and process the products more naturally. Another benefit of Aveda salon products is that they are developed through green practices that respect the environment. In today’s world, heightened awareness is steering people towards more environmentally responsible consumerism. So, using products from the Aveda salon collection or other ‘green’ products allows you to indulge and pamper yourself without compromising your desire to contribute to a better planet.
If you’re looking to improve the look of your skin, remember to consider what type of product will be used and especially, that there are different treatments available so you should consult with an Ottawa facials expert to discuss the best one for your skin type.
