Sensitive skin can be caused by a variety of factors like environmental damage, rosacea, acne, laser treatments or by natural disposition. Facials for sensitive skin use gentle procedures and hypoallergenic organic products that are appropriate for irritation-prone skin. If you have sensitive skin, your skin will be purified, cleansed and calm after your facial. Facials for sensitive skin can improve complexion, reduce inflammation and boost your skin’s immunity which will help prevent future irritations. For a sensitive skin facial, expect gentle touch and products with soothing ingredients such as natural fruits and plant elements and sea-derived extracts to be used. Light enzyme peels may be used to exfoliate, followed by a soothing serum and mask. Many sensitive skin facials conclude with a moisturizer formulated to reduce redness and calm inflammation. Because your skin is so sensitive, your aesthetician may avoid doing any extractions. Sensitive skin facial treatments require a personalized approach, so clients should consult with their aesthetician ahead of time about concerns.
Rose, chamomile and neroli are great ingredients for sensitive skin facials. Read more about sensitive skin facials in Spafinder’s blog post, What is a Sensitive Skin Facial?
