The one thing I always struggle with each winter (besides the freezing temps and snow) is dry skin. It seems that no matter how much moisturizer I use, my skin just can’t get enough hydration, leaving me with dry patches and redness. Last month I decided that enough was enough; I needed to do something about it.
I’ve gotten facials in the past and thought maybe this would be the route to take since it can help to revitalize your skin. I started researching and came across the HydraFacial™. This treatment targets skin issues such as fine lines, congested skin, uneven skin tone and most important, dryness. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extractions and hydration to deliver antioxidants, peptides and other essential nutrients back into the skin. Basically, everything I needed in one visit, so I booked my appointment right away.
I’ve had facials before, but this one was definitely next-level. The esthetician uses a handheld device with vacuum technology to remove impurities from the skin while simultaneously infusing the skin with different solutions like serums and hyaluronic acid. It just feels like someone is suctioning your skin with water. Yes, it may sound intense, but the treatment is actually pain-free, effective for all skin types and doesn’t require any downtime. Instead, you see immediate results.
I was amazed to see how different my skin looked and felt after this 30-minute treatment. My pores were noticeably smaller, my dry patches and redness were gone and I had a sunkissed glow as if I just returned from the beach.
