Facials for teens are often designed to specifically address breakouts that frequently are associated with adolescent skin.
Teen facials typically begin with a deep cleansing, followed by gentle extractions. A healing mask will then help to rehydrate dry, flaky skin, or eliminate oily particles.
Why get a teen facial?
It’s a fact that most teenagers will experience clogged pores, acne and breakouts at some point during their teen years. Despite being busy with school, their social life and sports, it’s very important for them to make time to pay attention to their skin and to realize the importance of good skin care. Now is the time to mend the effects of the summer sun and to clear and prevent hormonal acne and breakouts to get their skin looking its best.
Created with the teen’s complexion needs in mind, these facials can help with persisting teen skincare troubles or prevent them before the problem starts. An added bonus—they teach teens the importance of preemptive skincare.
What are the benefits of a teen facial?
There are many benefits of facials, but for teens in particular, facials will help clean out blackheads and clogged pores caused by oil production. Skin care products used at home can only help reduce clogged pores. It takes a professional esthetician to properly prepare and soften the skin before manual extractions can take place in a safe and effective way.
Part of getting a facial is receiving a lesson from experts on how to care for the skin properly. This information includes which products will work best for each person based on his or her skin type and the client will learn how to care for his or her skin at home to maintain the results of a facial.
What age is best for a teen facial?
During the teenage years, hormones can really start to fluctuate which can aggravate the skin and cause blemishes and breakouts. Those who produce a lot of oil and/or have weak follicular walls will experience more severe breakouts, including stubborn cystic acne. That being said, age 13 is a good time for teens to start coming in for facials. Even if problem skin isn’t yet an issue, it’s a good time to start teaching teenagers how to care for their skin.
What does a teen facial include?
A teen facial at Pure Natural Salon includes a thorough skin analysis to determine the teen’s skin type and needs of his or her skin. The skin is gently exfoliated to loosen surface dry cells to prepare the skin for a deep pore cleansing. Steam is also included to soften the pores, which will allow for manual extractions done safely so as not to harm the integrity of the skin. A massage and a customized mask appropriate for the skin type is then applied and the facial is finished with an oil-free lotion. During the facial, the ways in which diet and lifestyle can affect the skin are also discussed, as well as suggestions about how to care for the skin at home with simple, but effective routines.
How often should teens have facials?
This truly depends on the skin issues of each teen. Depending on the severity of problem skin, we recommend every 2 weeks for those who have plenty of issues with acne and every 6-8 weeks for maintaining healthy, clear skin.Teaching teens the importance of caring for their skin with regular facials is a great gift that not only affects their appearance, but also their self-esteem.
