What Kind of Facial is Best For Your Skin Type?

Facials are often considered a luxury experience meant for special occasions, but in reality, they are an essential component of a healthy skincare routine. Like anything else, regular treatments can help you maintain clear, beautiful, healthy skin all year round and combat some of the early signs of aging.

However, facials are not a one-size-fits-all deal. Getting a facial that isn’t right for your skin type can have the opposite effect of what you’re after, so it’s best to choose a facial that’s designed for your specific skin type. Despite the staggering number of products and treatments available, you can be confident the expert skincare specialists at Faces PLLC  in Jackson, Mississippi will guide you through the process of acquiring and maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. In celebration of National Skincare Month they’ve outlined the different skin types and recommendations on which facial is best for which type.

What if I’m not sure what type of skin I have?

Sometimes the products we’re using or our lifestyle play a huge role in the skin issues we’re experiencing. A comprehensive facial is always a great place to start, as it allows our aestheticians to examine your skin, discuss your current skincare habits, and suggest corrective at-home measures and clinical treatments that will make you love your skin again! Every comprehensive facial includes a thorough cleanse and skin evaluation, dermaplane, mask and/or corrective treatment specific to your skin’s specific needs, hydration and SPF, as well as recommendations for future treatments and suggestions for your at-home regimen. Again, the world of skincare treatments and products can be overwhelming, but that’s why we’re here!

Different Skin Types

Skin types are often broken down into the following categories:

Combination Skin

Typically oily in some areas and dry in others, you’ll see enlarged pores around the nose and smaller pores elsewhere with this skin type. You may also notice dry patches on the forehead, cheeks, and chin.

Dry Skin

Dry skin usually feels tight and rough, or it may include issues such as cracking and peeling.

Oily Skin

Oily skin tends to be overly shiny with clogged and enlarged pores, as well as blackheads, whiteheads, and cystic acne.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is often red and irritated and may itch or sting when certain products are applied.

Normal Skin

Normal skin has a balanced pH, meaning it’s neither oily or dry, and the pores are normal in size.

Best Facials For Combination Skin

Because combination skin has oily and dry areas and may have acne, the different areas of the face need to be treated differently. Our Comprehensive Facial, Chemical Peel, or SkinPen Microneedling treatments are effective at providing moisture where your skin needs it while exfoliating dead skin cells revealing new, healthy, vibrant-looking skin.

Best Facial For Dry Skin

Dry skin has less oil, making it more susceptible to dehydration and premature signs of aging. A Hydrafacial is a great option to combat these issues. The HydraFacial  is an effective and refreshing treatment for patients who want to smooth, plump, and rejuvenate distressed, dehydrated skin.

Best Facial for Oily Skin

Oily skin produces more oil than it needs, which can lead to enlarged pores and severe cases of acne. Our Diamond Glow Treatment is an innovative 3-1 technology that exfoliates, extracts, and infuses the skin with our specialized serums. This treatment is excellent for anyone with congested skin, enlarged pores, or acne.

Best Facials For Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin requires a gentle facial that includes products free of harsh chemicals and fragrance. A Comprehensive Facial is customized to address your skin’s specific needs, whereas our gentle OxyGeneo Super Facial works on all skin types to help remove dead skin cells with the power of oxygenation.

Best Facial For Normal Skin

If your skin is normal, lucky you! With the expert skincare specialists at Faces, PLLC on hand to provide advice, you can pick any facial that sounds best for you.
