Does Your Skin Need a Deep Cleansing?

There are a variety of facial treatments out there, but which ones do you really need? Something simple like a light exfoliating mask is usually helpful for everyone’s skin, but something like a chemical peel should be reserved only for those with certain skin issues and skin types. This posts focuses on deep cleansing treatments and how to know when/if you need one and what a deep cleansing may entail.

What is a deep cleansing treatment?

A deep cleansing treatment, which may sometimes be referred to as a deep cleansing facial at some spas, is a treatment performed by skincare experts to give your skin a deep cleaning by going beyond the skin’s outermost layers to clean your skin and eliminate blackheads and prevent acne.

How do I know if I need a deep cleansing treatment?

People who could use a deep cleansing treatment include those with very oily or acne-prone skin. If traditional methods of extracting blackheads and dirt don’t work on you (such as exfoliating products or blackhead-eliminating products), then a deep cleansing may be useful. If you have uneven skin texture or color, this treatment could be of great help as well. Be sure to tell the person performing the facial of your skin concerns and skin type so they can cater to your needs.

Why should I get a deep cleansing treatment?

These professional facial treatments get beneath the surface- something which regular products can’t always do. Deep cleansing facials will help kill bacteria beneath your skin, where your everyday cleanser can’t reach. These treatments will give you clearer, brighter and healthier-looking skin.

How can I give myself a deep cleansing treatment?

You can give yourself a simpler version of the spa’s facials with a few products. First off, use a gentle cleanser to wipe away makeup and bacteria and start with a clean slate. Then, exfoliate to get rid of dead skin. Open up your pores with a bowl of steaming hot water and let your face hang over it for 15 minutes. Then, apply a deep cleaning mask by following the directions on the tube/bottle. Remove the mask and apply a light toner to your skin. Add a serum (if needed), eye cream and then a moisturizer.
