Everyone cares about the look and feel of their skin, wanting to love, soothe and protect the skin that you’re wrapped in. When it comes to the face, this is particularly true, as your facial skin is one of the first things others will see and notice when they look at you.
One way to help keep your facial skin hydrated, nourished, moisturized, fresh, clean and clear is with facials, cleansers and creams.
A facial is a family of skin care treatments for the face, including steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, cleansers, facial masks, peels and massages. Facials are normally performed in beauty salons and spas, and can be used for general skin health as well as to treat specific skin conditions. Types of facials include the European facial, LED light therapy facials, mini-facials and the face cream moisturizing facial.
Most all facials are performed with some type of face cleansers and creams, or moisturizing creams. A cream is a topical preparation usually for application to the skin. Creams may be considered pharmaceutical products, as even cosmetic creams are based on techniques developed by pharmacies, and unmedicated creams are highly used in a variety of skin conditions.
Uses for Face Cleansers and Moisturizing Creams:
- To protect the skin
- To aid in the retention of moisture
- As a cleansing agent
- For emollient effects
Facial Cream Fun Fact: Although face creams use different ingredients, the four main ingredients in face creams are water, oil, emulsifier and a thickening agent.
Facials, cleansers and creams: your skin’s luxurious dream!
How to Do an At-Home Facial:
- Cleanse (Wash) Your Face: Cleansing removes dirt, oil and makeup and gives your face a clean slate.
- Exfoliate: Exfoliating is imperative for creating a healthier, smoother skin appearance.
- Steam: Steaming is generally the most relaxing and cleansing part of the facial, opening skin follicles/facial pores.
- Extractions: Helps remove blemishes.
- Treatment Mask: This is the heart of any facial. This is when your skin is most ready to receive nutrients, as the skin has been cleansed, exfoliated and steamed.

- Wahlah, a gorgeous you!

Every fashion gal cares about her skin. In addition to facial cleansers and creams, anti-aging creams are a major market seller. Anti-aging creams are predominantly moisturizer based, cosmetic skin care products marketed with the promise of making the consumer look younger by reducing, masking or preventing signs of skin aging. These signs are sagging skin, wrinkles, redness, skin yellowing and poor skin texture and tone. Traditionally, anti-aging creams have been marketed towards women, but products specifically targeting men are growing in popularity.
