Say Hello to a Radiant Face

Who doesn’t love to look radiant and youthful? We spend so much on creams, lipsticks and other cosmetics in an effort to get that glow. In fact, over the years, women have become even more conscious of their looks, taking immense pride in the way they appear. This is evident from the fact that, since the turn of the millennium, the Indian cosmetic industry has been growing at a rate of 15-20% every year, according to the figures released by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII).

While we spend so much on cosmetics, do we really know their effects on our skin? Instead, shouldn’t we be choosing a face therapy that resulted in our skin becoming healthier? So, whether your skin in dull, pigmented or tanned, whether you wish to get rid of acne or wrinkles, or you simply wish to look more beautiful than you already do, here are some things you should know.

Choosing a Face Therapy Can Be Tricky

The harmful UV rays of the sun could have left your skin looking lifeless and darker. Other factors like dehydration and deficiencies in our diet result in dimming the natural glow of our face. While a face therapy can help restore the sheen, it is essential to consult a dermatologist or beauty expert. This is because the treatment needs to be identified only after taking into account your particular skin type and what you wish to achieve.

Peels are rightly believed to be good for your skin. A treatment with peels stimulates the epidermis, balances the oils, deep-cleanses the pores, helps to even out your skin tone and aids in removing wrinkles. However, some of us have oily skin and others have dry skin. This means that the formulations of the peels and the techniques used to apply them need to vary.

If your skin is dry, you could opt for a treatment focusing on intense hydration and nourishment of the skin cells. Such a treatment can help provide your skin with the much-needed Vitamin A, B5, C and E, resulting in a new found radiance.

For your skin is oily, the treatment needs to focus on getting rid of excess oil and shrinking the pores. With a combination of exfoliation, massage and mask, the treatment can repair sun damage, improve blood circulation and lighten skin complexion.

When chosen correctly and done by an expert, a face therapy can even accelerate cell renewal, help repair skin damage, remove aging lines and make your face glow with freshness.
