A Quick Guide To 6 Glow-Inducing Salon Treatments

It’s that time of the year again when we’re bang in the middle of wedding season. And if you, like me, are running helter-skelter to source your outfits and accessories to match your wedding guest mood board, you must’ve missed out on one not-so-tiny detail. Your skin.

It’s a known fact that winter wreaks havoc on the skin. People who’ve complained about having oily skin all year long are suddenly wondering how to manage dry skin. Either way, the glow is lost and no amount of makeup is going to replicate that dewy glow, the way healthy skin does.

An easy way to get that glow is with the help of a facial from your local salon. No, you won’t have to dig deep into your pockets since these are pretty basic and usually start from Rs. 1500 and then move upwards.

What Does A Facial Entail?

Sure, almost every facial promises glowing skin by the end of the procedure. But do you know what you’re signing up for before getting a facial?

  • Cleansing, makeup removal (if you’re wearing any) and toning.
  • Steaming.
  • Toning.
  • Exfoliating.
  • Massaging.
  • Face pack.
  • Wash and moisturise.

The Best Facials To Get As Per Your Concern

De-Tan Facial

As the name suggests, the de-tan facial helps in getting rid of tan lines on the skin and restoring the skin’s natural tone. The face pack is applied and left on the skin for around 15-20 minutes and then washed off, to reveal the skin’s natural tone. This face pack usually contains ingredients like Vitamin C, that help in instantly brightening and exfoliating. It also targets pigmentation and reduces the appearance of scars and spots.

Hydra Facial

Best for those struggling with dry skin, the hydra facial helps rehydrate and rejuvenate the skin. The mask contains no added scent or colours that can further irritate dry skin and leaves it feeling plump, hydrated, and moisturised after the session.


Chocolate Facial

This is primarily a pore-cleansing facial treatment. The basic ingredients of this face pack are walnut powder and chocolate grains. These ingredients help unclog the pores, remove dead skin cells, and reduce the appearance of pores. Chocolate also contains antioxidants that help reduce visible signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.

Diamond/ Gold Facials

You’re in for a luxurious ride with either of these facials. The diamond and gold facials are rich in antioxidants and help revive the skin from damage caused by free radicals. It leaves the skin feeling and looking much younger, softer and smoother. These massages usually come with complimentary foot or back massages as well, giving you an all-round experience.


Face Peels

One of the most common ways to exfoliate the skin, peels work well to get rid of the topmost layer of the skin which can include everything from dead skin cells to dust, which makes the skin look duller. The procedure helps increase cell turnover to reveal brighter and younger-looking skin. Orange peels are the most common of the lot.

Microdermabrasion Facial

This one doesn’t involve a face pack but a machine instead. This procedure involves minute crystals from a machine being used to smooth out rough skin, remove dead skin cells, reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote collagen. And if you’re wondering if this hurts, let me tell you, you’ll barely feel a thing but step out with better, brighter and younger-looking skin. This procedure is best done by specialists who know what they’re doing as it requires precision and care.


Here Are The Safest Facial Brands Used In Most Salons

Word of caution, it’s best not to step out in direct sunlight for around 24 hours after getting a facial. Your skin is extra sensitive at this point and the sun’s harsh rays won’t do you any good. Also, avoid any makeup or new skincare products in these 24 hours as the pores could get clogged leading to acne.
