Been to a salon for a facial and walked out feeling amazed at how silky smooth and fresh your face feels? You’d be amazed to learn that natural ingredients make up some of the core elements used in effective, soothing and relaxing facial treatments. Indeed, when you know the right ingredients and have the necessary expertise, facial creams can be easy and quick to make.
Here are some of the best ingredients that professionals use to make facials:
Honey has been used for thousands of years as a beauty and skin care product and even medical research has proven its effectiveness as an antimicrobial agent on our skin. Put simply, honey inhibits the growth of certain bacteria, therefore reducing the potential for acne flare-ups and keeping the face smooth by holding in moisture. When coupled with lemon and olive oil, it can really help to hydrate dry skin.
With the rough texture and glycolic acid in sugar, it can make for a great facial scrub. When used in conjunction with other ingredients and chemicals, sugar can become a very effective skin exfoliant.
This natural tree sap is renowned for its skin soothing and healing abilities, which is why you will find it used in many herbal remedies and facial creams. It is sometimes used to help reduce the signs of ageing, hydrate the skin, and to treat various facial rashes like eczema.
Grapes aren’t just great for eating - they’re great for providing nourishment to your skin too! That’s because they contain lots of antioxidants and are renowned for their ability to exfoliate the skin. When used in facials, they will help to leave your skin looking healthy and shiny.
While you may have these ingredients in your fridge or pantry, the most effective facial creams are made using very specific recipes, with unique combinations of ingredients. That’s why it’s usually best to visit a reliable skin and beauty parlour like Glamour Beauté Lounge in Brisbane for your facial treatments.
