Perfect Shape facials offer
the ultimate pampering for your face. Facials not only cleanse
your face of all impurities, they also tone it and make it
look radiant. With growing pollution and stressful lives, facials
are no longer a luxury. They have become absolutely essential
to protect your skin and to make you look perfectly groomed.
What are facials?
A healthy, glowing skin is a good indicator
of all round well being. Facials are special beauty treatments
rehydrate and rejuvenate your face. If you face looks lack-luster,
shows signs of wrinkles or has acne and blemishes, a Perfect
Shape facial can really help you. At Perfect Shape, our first
step is to identify your skin type. Specific facials are suited
for specific skin types – dry, normal, oily or combination.
For instance, Aroma facials include aromatic oils that relax
facial muscles, toning and rejuvenating them. You walk out
looking radiant and feeling great!
How long does a facial take?
A good facial treatment takes over an
hour. Many steps are involved in a facial. The first step
is to cleanse the face
thoroughly. Your face is then ready to soak in the goodness
of oils. Trained hands then massage your face, eyes, neck and
back to completely relax the muscles and also improve the blood
circulation in those areas. Pure and natural oils seep through
your skin’s layers to give it a beautiful glow. This
takes the best part of an hour.
The Perfect Shape beautician then steams
your face to further squeeze out hidden layers of dirt. After
dabbing it dry, a
refreshing face pack is applied. This again can be of your
choice – a fruit pack, aroma pack or mud pack. Once the
pack dries, the beautician cleans it up and applies a light
moisturizer on your face and neck. You are now ready to step
out and take on the world! Reshma also advises not to use any
soap on your face for at least 24 hours after a facial.
If you are pressed for time, mini facials compress this process.
They are designed to primarily cleanse your skin and are great
for acne treatment. Perfect Shape beauticians carefully remove
all blackheads and whiteheads that cause acne. Repeated facials
can treat and control acne, improving the texture of your skin.
You can go in for mini facials once a fortnight and see the
difference it makes to breakouts and blemishes.
What types of facials does Perfect Shape offer?
You have a range of facials to choose
from. At Perfect Shape, you will first undergo a personalized
skin assessment conducted
by a trained beautician. You can then decide on the facial
you’d like to go for.
Aromatherapy facials are suitable for most skin types and
have an exhilarating effect on both your body and mind. Naturally
sourced aromatic oils are gently worked into your skin to cleanse
and rejuvenate it. The facemask also contains essential oils
that nourish and balance your skin, giving it a fabulous glow.
Fruit facials use fruit extracts like papaya, lemon and oranges.
Each of these fruits has a specific effect on your skin. Bananas
moisturize dry skin while orange peels are superb for oily
skin. These freshly prepared fruit extracts cleanse, moisturize
and plump up your skin. If you suffer from any skin condition
or have sensitive skin, this is the best kind of facial to
opt for. Fruit and plant extracts are all natural and gentle
on facial skin.
Precious metal facials are great for brightening your skin.
Precious metal extracts are mixed with massage creams to work
on specific skin types. Gold facial is great for oily and dry
skins. Platinum facial works wonders on dehydrated, saggy skin.
Pearl facial brings a pearly glow on to a dull and tired face.
A galvanic device is used to work on the deeper layers of your
skin, helping all the curative properties of precious metals
to penetrate easily.
Antioxidant facials are especially useful to remove toxins
trapped in the top layers of the skin. Creams used for this
facial contain free-radical agents like Vitamin A, Vitamin
E and Beta-carotene. They enhance blood circulation in the
skin layers and flush out harmful built-up substances. Such
facials are very useful in removing tan and smoothening stress
Herbal facials use traditional Indian herbs and roots in their
massage cream. Kaya facials are very famous in India and Shahnaz
Hussein products are used by every beauty conscious Indian.
Perfect Shape ensures that at least one treatment room is dedicated
to this Indian beauty regime. Made with completely natural
ingredients like wheat germ, fruits, berries, milk cream, spices
and herbs, Shahnaz products are unparalleled in quality.
Who are facials
Facials are suitable for everyone, men
and women alike. If you have great skin, you’ll need one to maintain its
glow. If you are young and suffer from acne, regular clean
ups and exfoliation would constitute an appropriate acne
Ideally, in your 20s you should go for facials once every 3
to 4 months. If you are over 30 you should go for more frequent
facials, ideally once a month. This helps keep wrinkles, blemishes,
laugh lines and crow’s feet at bay.
If you are getting married soon or need to dress up for a
special occasion, Perfect Shape facial treatments can start
3 months in advance. You can consult Perfect Shape beauticians
beforehand and plan out your beauty regimen in detail.
