Skin care applied during a spa facial or visit can do wonders for your skin. But why? What makes spa skin care so effective? And can you mimic the spa skin care effect at home?
What makes spa skin care so effective?
The short answer is potency. Typical “back bar” skin care products are manufactured exclusively for use by day spa and salons. They often contain higher levels (and potency) of ingredients. You’ll find higher levels of glycolic acid and salicylic acids in spa scrubs and exfoliants. And you’ll find high concentrations of emollients and beneficial ingredients such as aloe vera, olive oil, lanolin, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and Retina A.
Proper and deep application also helps
Spa therapists are also trained to get the most benefits from the skin care treatments they apply. They carefully exfoliate, cleanse, tone, and balance your skin before applying skin care intended to correct or prevent damage. They know that applying skin care treatments to a dirty, clogged surface will inhibit absorption and limit the results. It’s why a spa facial takes a minimum of a half hour. You have to cleanse and open the pores in the face before applying the skin care ingredients to insure good penetration. Steam is often used to open pores due to it’s gentle warming effect that naturally coerces skin to flush with blood and prepare to receive additional skin care.
Bel Mondo Masks offer professional grade skin care at home
Yes it is possible to achieve spa like skin care results at home today. But often it requires a laborious regimen of steps similar to your trip to the spa. But when you’re doing it to yourself it’s not as relaxing. Until now! Bel Mondo Bio Cellulose Masks take the effort out of at home spa therapy.
