Here the knowledge of the beautician plays an integral role as they educate the clients about their own skin type and its needs.
Can you elaborate on the steps during this facial?
There are five steps in this facial. Powered with a blend of active ingredients, this facial instantly reduces melanin on the upper layers of the epidermis. It starts with Cleansing that helps in removing oil, dirt and makeup from the skin. This is followed by deep cleaning to remove dead skin cells with the help of natural enzymes from superficial layer. The next step is toning to constrict skin pores and maintain the pH balance and hydration level which diminishes during the exfoliation process. We also recommend our clients to add skin lightening ampoules for better results. Our experts then massage the clients skin using an energising cream. This step relaxes facial muscles, improves blood circulation and nourishes skin imparting glow. Cheryl’s uses scientific massage technique, as it is important to follow correct massage technique for skin rejuvenation. Finally, a mask is applied that contains Vitamin C which helps to lighten and tighten the skin, leaving a fresh appearance on the skin.
Which home care products do you recommend your clients post this facial?
We always recommend our clients to follow a complete home care regime that keeps the skin healthy and nourished throughout the day. We suggest our clients to start with cleansing using the Cheryl’s DermaLite Face Wash that has a moisturizing and lightening effect which improves skin moisture barrier. This step must be followed with a moisturizer using the Cheryl’s HydraMoist Moisturizer which is known to be easily absorbed by the skin and gives it a soft, velvety feel. Post this, we ask our clients step out of the house using the DermaShade Sunblock that has a photo stable formula that provides the highest protection against UV induced burning and ageing. In the night we recommend our clients to use the O2C2 Radiance Lotion for skin repair. This lotion is formulated to draw out and enhance the natural radiance and shine of the skin that is more associated with young, youthful and glowing skin.
