Your skin after a day at the spa likely feels clean, smooth, and baby-soft. However, it's really hard to keep your skin feeling like that as you go through your day-to-day life. A trip to the spa is nice and rejuvenating, but how do you know what the best procedures are for you skin to stay great the longest?
If you're wanting to maximize the efforts of your spa days and keep your skin fresh even if you won't get to go to the spa for a few weeks, then here's a list of the best spa procedures for your skin.
This intensely moisturizing facial goes under many names (such as "rejuvenating" or "wrinkle-erasing"), but "anti-aging" is the most common moniker, as it gets right to the truth of what the procedure will do: help to erase the marks of aging from your skin.
Generally speaking, an anti-aging facial will involve a steam treatment (to open your pores to remove impurities), followed by a face mask, and finished up with a face massage. The combination of these three procedures softens wrinkles, removes stress marks, and helps your skin look clear and young — perfect for someone feeling weary and tired of fine lines and wrinkles.
Your skin cells are constantly replenishing themselves, but the old skin cells don't always fall off at the same rate. This build-up of skin cells can clog your pores, increase acne spots on both your face and your body, and can dull the overall appearance of your skin.
Think of a microdermabrasion treatment like buffing a car — you're removing excess material in order to reveal your natural shine underneath. This procedure will redden your skin slightly for a few hours, but will also leave you feeling clean and radiant from your head to your toes.
While most (if not all) spa skin treatments will help increase the amount of moisture in your skin, if you live in a dry climate or have naturally dry skin, you may want to choose a purely hydrating spa procedure to breathe new life into dry, dusty skin.
A hydration treatment generally contains at least one (and usually far more than one) humectant element meant to moisturize even the driest and most lotion-resistant of skin (such as your elbows, knees, and heels), turning your skin baby-soft and removing the itching and flaking that can come with intensely dry skin.
