European facial is the basic skin regime. It is recommended for people who do not have any significant problems with their skin, like excessive oil production, breakouts or aging skin. It starts with a brief examination. You will be asked what products you are currently using and what your expectations are. It is also a good time to mention if you are under any type of medication, or suffer from some sort of condition, which might affect your skin. If you are allergic to specific ingredients, or you don't feel comfortable with having your eyes covered, please let us know, so that your experience at Grace's Day Spa will be most comfortable and effective.

Here are the basic steps of our European Facial:

  • Your skin will be cleansed with a gentle milky cleanser in order to remove make up, excess of oils and impurities.
  • After the skin has been cleaned it is ready for exfoliation. Such products, like Gommage Exfoliant, which has gentle grains, help to slough off the dead skin cell layer leaving the skin remarkably smooth and promoting cellular regeneration.
  • After exfoliation the skin is ready for the steam, which will help to open up pores, soften and hydrate the skin so that the extraction of blackheads won't be too invasive. The manual extraction is done in a conservative manner in order to not to irritate the skin.
  • At this moment your esthetician will tell you if you need to change your at-home skin regime (etc. consider a different moisturizer) or that you might have to come back again in a few days for a follow-up treatment.
  • The last step involves application of a mask. Any type of mask is like a concentrate of a cream and it helps to calm down the skin after the treatment. Afterwards, when the mask has been removed a moisturizer is applied and you are ready to go and enjoy the rest of the day!

Special remarks: You should consider this type of a facial as a part of your skin regime and have it done at least four times a year, provided your skin doesn't require any special care. By seeing your esthetician regularly you will have your skin under professional supervision to prevent premature aging and any damages done by the environment. You will be always alarmed at the right time, when the negative effects can be slowed down or stopped, but most preferably reversed.
