Salon treatments do vary hugely, so think about what you want to gain out of the treatment first and then ask the advice of the salon, who will offer you their best solution.
The first main difference is whether the treatment uses electrical equipment or a ‘hands on’ facial. Using just the hands and products generally means a more relaxing treatment, which relies on more massage technique and the action of the products on the skin.
An electrical facial will give a more intense treatment, sometimes not as comfortable, but can treat specific problems.
At this time of year, as the weather gets colder, your face gets constant exposure to cold winds and then to central heating, and air conditioning, which dries the skin, causing it to feel tight and sometimes sore and rough to touch. Lips especially need added protection, as the skin can easily peel. A good moisturiser and lip balms are essential and must be applied before you go outside, to avoid putting the skin under stress. If you do find your face needs some extra help, a facial is ideal.
Our ‘Spa Fabulous Organics ’ facials here at Queen Bee in the Woods focus on deep cleansing, deep moisturisation & hydration, and deep relaxation. If you want facial treatments to have an effect on the skin, you should have a treatment once a month, as the skin takes 28 days to grow from the bottom layer to the top.
Our unique facials use a combination of Spa Fabulous Organics and Beeutiful products; local organic products, free from artificial and harmful chemicals, and using techniques from 20 years’ experience using top spa brands. Your skin will be treated to a double cleanse; a very different, intensive but gentle, exfoliation treatment using Beeutiful balm and muslin; a heavenly facial and decolette massage and then the masque treatment is applied. A masque treatment is chosen out of a choice of 4. These masques are meant to be stimulating to improve circulation, and encourage cell renewal so don’t be alarmed if you look at bit pink after removal. That’s what we want to see! While the masque does its work, you will be treated to a stress relieving head and neck massage. A hot towel is then used to remove the masque, ‘A Little pot of Heaven’ eye cream, moisturiser and Beeutiful honey lip balm is then applied, and a gentle rose water mist is sprayed to bring you out of your duvet cocoon on the warm treatment couch!
As well as the obvious skin treatment benefits, our Spa Fabulous Facials are incredibly stress busting and relaxing, so great for preparing yourself for the stress of the Christmas holidays or to perk yourself up in January! And don’t forget - guys enjoy facials just as much as girls!
