Everyone loves a good facial. Who could say no to being pampered by expert hands while sitting back and relaxing? Not only is it nurturing, but afterwards the skin will appear rejuvenated and improved.
What is a skincare facial treatment?
A facial is a series of different treatments that help to clean cleanse and nourish the skin. A facial treatment typically begins with a cleanse and exfoliation, to clear away impurities and dead cells on the skin’s surface that could feed bacteria and block pores or contribute to the skin feeling dry and dull. Once the skin has been prepared, a light massage is performed to encourage circulation and lymphatic flow, which the body uses to clear dead and damaged cells internally. Lastly, most facial treatments also involve the use of masks and replenishing products to purify, balance and moisturise, leaving the skin feeling rejuvenated.
Facial skincare treatments are the most sought-after treatment these days. They are popular with a diverse range of clients, all looking to improve the condition and appearance of their skin.

This is very much a hands-on course therefore allowing sufficient time to practice and perform the techniques under the guidance of the tutor. During the course, you will partner up with another therapist and will get the chance to perform the techniques taught as well as being the recipient.
