We talk often about how Bel Mondo Bio Cellulose Facial Masks can give you the skin rejuvenating benefits, as well as the pampering, of a professional spa facial. Of course, in a perfect world, you would use Bel Mondo masks to supplement the treatments you get from your aesthetician.
Two of the most important parts of any professional spa facial are the consultation and the analysis. These help the aesthetician (and you) determine the best treatments and regimens for your skin. And it’s important that these steps occur at each facial appointment, even if you have a longstanding relationship with your aesthetician. After all, our skin changes as we age, and factors such as stress, illness, etc. can affect our skin.
Before you even enter the treatment room, your aesthetician should consult with you. She/he might even have you fill out a form that will address your skin concerns, your diet, your water intake, any medications and/or supplements you take, and skin care products you are currently using. The more information you can provide, the better equipped your aesthetician will be to provide the most effective skin care treatment. You may also get recommendations about how to adjust your lifestyle and habits to help improve your skin.
During skin analysis, the aesthetician looks at your skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. Often, skin care consultants at high end department stores will use these when consulting with you about what products are best suited for your skin type. The aesthetician/consultant is determining your basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) This analysis allows them to choose appropriate products and treatments. In addition, it allows them to educate you so that you can work together to find the best products. It can also alert you to problems that may require a consultation with a dermatologist.
Make sure that these steps are included in any professional spa facial you receive. If they’re not, find a different aesthetician (or a different spa) next time.
