Deep Cleanse Facial

Oily skin can be an absolute nightmare, especially if it is not controlled, because the excess oils on your skin can clog up your pores, causing black and whiteheads, and while the oils are lingering, it can leave your face looking shiny and feeling horrible.

The key to tackling oily skin is by understanding what causes it. So, what does cause skin to be oily?

The simplest way of explaining it is that it is basically what happens when your body produces too much sebum. Sebum is necessary in order to keep your skin nourished, hydrated and looking healthy.

But, why does the body create too much of the stuff? Well, there are a range of possibilities that vary from person-to-person. The most common reasons being: Hormones (especially during teenage years, menstruation and pregnancy), Genetics, Stress, even some forms of medication.

Whatever the reason, all you really need to know is that an excess of it can turn into an oil slick. Therefore, the key really is a matter of learning how to control it.

There are a huge variety of products saturating the markets that can help to regulate the amounts of oil your skin produces, however, when your skin is already covered in black and whitehead, regulating the sebum isn’t enough. First you need to give your skin a thorough and deep cleanse.

The best way to get a good deep cleanse, is by visiting Lowena in St. Ives for a Deep Cleansing that will set your skin back on the path you want it to go in, and Lowena can advise you on which products you should be using, and which you should definitely avoid. Everyone’s needs are different, so what works for your oily-skinned friend, might not be so perfect for your skin.

A Deep Cleanse Facial plus extractions lasts around 45 minutes, and costs $60 and consists of several treatments:

Double Cleanse. When you have oily skin, a double cleanse is even more crucial, because cleansing the skin twice ensures that all of the excess oils are removed from the surface of the face. The oils need to be removed in order to ensure that your skin doesn’t get clogged up anytime soon.

Exfoliation. Exfoliation has two purposes in this facial, because not only does it remove the dead skin cells that otherwise would leave your face looking tired, but exfoliating can also help rid dirt from your pores.

Note: Having “dirt” in your pores does not necessarily mean that you are not cleaning your face properly. Everyday occurrences - such as pollution - will get into your skin, no matter how clean you are. Also, remember that over cleaning can also be harmful to your skin, because you could be stripping away the oil that your skin does need.

Extractions. If you have blackheads, then these will be removed using an Extraction procedure. This isn’t as scary is it might sound, but if you have sensitive skin, you may find it a little uncomfortable.

Treatment Masks. A Deep Cleansing Mask is applied to draw about any impurities that might still be remaining within your skin. The mask will also help to rebalance the levels of sebum.

Finally Serum, Eye Cream and Moisturiser will be applied to your skin to ensure that your face is hydrated, especially in the areas that tend to need a little more attention, such as around the delicate eye area.
