Except Facials!

Jul 7 23 Comments

So, I’m going for a regular Facial (to a nearby Spa) tomorrow.

My skin (especially Facial skin) is super unhealthy. It’s tanned, has non-homogeneous colour and what not.
I’m mainly annoyed by the fact that I’m 6-8 shades darker than I used to be.

Looking for genuine advice/recommendations/suggestions on what services/treatments I can go for in addition to Facial.

P.S. No trolls, please.

    • Yeah, this is not a IIT-JEE question. And, thus, is relatively easy.

    Go get a facial once to hear what they say. Otherwise for a lighter skin tone I'd recommend foundation. Seriously :)

      Or accept your skin color and use exfoliants/ antioxidants to smooth/even skintone instead of clogging your pores and making it worse long term.

      You can do both, ofc.

      Using makeup isn't the same as not accepting your appearance...

      Anyways, as long as you clean it off at the end of the day, it's unlikely that you'll make it worse long-term

      Drink a lot of water
      Sleep well at same time for adequate time
      Workout daily
      Apply natural packs made at home or readymade natural packs are good once a week
      Use sunscreen generously everytime while heading out
      Practice mindfulness meditation
      Find irritants in diet (dairy, glutten, etc) with controlled experiments
      Practice gratitude

      Practice radical acceptance of yourself.

      Be comfortable in your skin and skin color.

    Didn't know people still did facials. Try an acid peel if you don't mind having peeling skin for a week. It's not as bad as it sounds. Baby smooth and radiant skin. I haven't done it at a salon but been doing weaker concentrations at home and they work.

    • Hey, thanks a lot. Have facials become obsolete already? 😦

      Not sure! Most people I know have included the treatments into their daily/weekly skincare regimen. More consistent and long lasting results if done more often at home :)

    I was expecting something else when I clicked the title.

    It sounds like you just got a tan because it is summer time?

    • Enticing title, huh? 😬
      Yes, I got tanned because of summer and bad skin-care and eating habits. Now, I’m like 6-8 shades darker than I used to be. And, I’m hating it. Thus, in addition to improving my habits, I’m looking for some treatments/services I can go for to expedite the replenishment.

      Can you please name a few which are the best ones?

    Monthly facials, daily regimen, use sunscreen as your daily moisturizer. There are lots of treatments you can do at home. I use Zo skincare products and really like them. I use the exfoliating cleanser weekly, radical night repair (weekly, you’ll get peeling at first), instant eye cream nightly. I use Dr Alkaitis face wash, soothing gel and toner. Really makes a big difference.

    Lytera works wonders for this. You can get it from a dermatologist or online.

  • Consult an aesthetician. Regular face regimen will help
