A facial is a procedure involving a variety of skin treatments, including: steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, masks, peels, and massage. Normally performed in a beauty salon but it is also a common spa treatment.
The other night I got a chance to visit Bloomingdales at Dubai Mall to try the free facial promo of Este Lauder. A friend of my flatmates is working there and she invited us to try it. It was just a basic facial treatment but still the experience was really great. The last time I had my facial treatment was 2 years ago wherein I hated to go back for any treatment anymore. I remember I went out from the salon with my face almost swollen because the Aesthetician/Beautician (whatever you call a person doing the facial) had extracted all blackheads and whiteheads which had cause broken capillaries and discoloration on my face because it was done improperly.
The other night's experience is awesome that I think would let me consider facial treatment once I a month maybe esp. now that I've been having a problem with pimples and skin blemishes.
