Gold, Oxy Or Fruit? Here's The BEST Facial For Your Skin Type!

Mumbai is a lovely city, but it does not spare my skin. The dust, pollution and humidity in the air clog my pores and makes my complexion look dull and haggard. Which is why I get a basic facial done once every month. Nothing too fancy though, just the regular - cleansing, exfoliation, removing blackheads, massaging and masking. The reason why I choose a basic facial is not that it’s inexpensive, but the fact that less product is used. I have sensitive skin and if a product does not agree with it, I get rashes, bumps and swollen pores. Hence, my advice to you is, don’t just choose any facial blindly. You have to pick one that benefits your skin type the most. Here’s how to choose a facial depending on your skin’s needs.

The dirt and pollution in the air can create a greasy and mucky coat on your face. A gold facial is exactly what you need to bring back instant radiance to your skin. While it helps promote healthy and supple skin, it also makes it glow in the process too. It’s slightly expensive, but if you want to pamper your skin, this facial will grant you the wish of happy skin!


2. Oily Skin: Pearl Facial


Does your skin feel greasy and sticky most of the time? Your skin type is oily then. You need a pearl facial to sort your life out. A pearl cream and a pearl mask are used on your face to moisturise and revitalize your skin. Not to mention that this facial also aims at absorbing excess sebum, brightening skin and improving its texture. You’ve got to try it to believe it.

3. Dry Skin: Plant Stem Cell Facial

All products used in this facial are plant-based. They contain no chemicals or toxins that can be dangerous for the skin. On the contrary, plant stem cell facials heal damaged skin cells and reduce any signs of ageing. If you do land up trying this facial, here’s what to expect - under-eye gel, serum, cream, exfoliator and mask. Hello there, happy skin!


4. Sensitive Skin: Oxygen Facial


I have yet to try an oxygen facial, but I will for sure. I heard many creams and masks are used and this helps to keep skin hydrated and nourished. Plus, this facial clears skin out by removing the gunk from the pores and making your complexion look squeaky clean.


5. Ageing Skin: Aromatherapy Facial

Another luxurious way to pamper your skin is to opt for an aromatherapy facial. This one is super relaxing for both, mind and body. It keeps your skin moist, nourished and hydrated. Aromatherapy oil is used to make skin glow and reduce any early signs of ageing. Plus, the scent of these oils acts as an instant mood-lifter.

6. Rough Skin: Silver Facial


Your skin gets rough because you haven’t looked after it. Too many toxins and lack of moisture makes the surface of your skin dry and super rough. Hence, I would recommend that you try the silver facial out. Get it done once every month to get clear, soft and supple skin.

7. Combination Skin: Fruit Facial

If you have sensitive skin, don’t get a fruit facial done. I tried a pomegranate facial once and after a while I experienced breakouts. The active enzymes in the facial caused my skin to itch and puff up. However, combination skin is tougher. The citric, tartaric and malic acid and vitamins in the facial can hydrate the skin and brighten skin naturally like a pro!
