Back Facial–What is it and why should you do it?

back-facial1

When you are in the shower, do you pay much attention to the cleansing of your back?

Do you have any idea if your pores are congested and in need of extractions?

How often do you really look at your back?


You may try to give your back a good once over in the shower, however nothing compares to having a professional treat the hardest area on the body to reach with a deep cleanse entailing exfoliation, extractions and rehydrating your skin with a nutrient mask.  Not only do Back Facials help prepare your skin for a summer season full of bathing suits and strapless dresses, this service also targets annoying conditions that can happen year-round like back acne.  Back Facials are a great service to have at least twice a year or if you have problem skin, every three months. #skincare #backfacial #majolie

To TONE or not to TONE


images (1)So many of my clients tell me they DO NOT use a toner/astringent.  Once I tell them the reason for using it, they realize it is a MUST within their cleansing regimen.  I even get emails telling me they can’t believe how much dirt and oil still shows on the cotton pad after they have just cleansed.  The purpose of a toner/astringent?  It can help remove excess dirt and oil from your face, prepare your skin for improved absorption of skin care products that are applied to the face instantly after the toner;  but most importantly, it’s to restore the skin’s pH balance. 

Toner normally comes in a liquid form, however, some toners are formulated as gels or sprays.  A toner can be used as part of a multistep skin care routine; right after cleansing or exfoliating the face.

What kind of Toner should you purchase?

I highly recommend Dickenson Witch Hazel.  It’s inexpensive and does the job.  If you notice most professional toners carry Witch Hazel within it’s product.  You can order this product online or your local CVS should have it. 

After you CLEANSE YOUR SKIN  

1.  Applying the Toner – Pour a small amount of liquid toner onto a cotton ball or pad. Take care not to soak the cotton but do put a sufficient amount on it so that it slips easily over the face.  Once cotton is ready with toner then gently move the cotton gently in small circles all over your face, paying special attention to forehead, nose and chin as this area, often referred to as the “T-zone,” which tends to produce more oil.  Avoid eye area as this area is very sensitive.

Reapplying the Toner - Repeat the process (if required) using a fresh cotton ball or pad until you no longer see dirt and excess oil on the cotton. This step is optional; sometimes you clearly have swiped away all excess oil and dirt the first time.

ATTN MEN:  Toning is important for you too.  But the question is, will you take the additional step?   If you choose to do so, a cotton pad or ball isn’t going to work for a man with facial hair or even stubble.  Best thing to use is a spray toner.

2.  Apply Moisturizer or Cream - After applying toner on the skin, leave alone at least for 1-2 minutes for the toner to dry on your face. Toner is not intended to be washed off your face.  Then  apply moisturizer or cream to your face.  If during the day, don’t forget to apply sunscreen.

BASIC SKIN CARE TIPS FOR MEN


mensfacial

Attention all men…..  Just do it…… Take care of your skin!  Here are some easy steps for you to follow:

tea-tree-oil-giftCLEANSE

MORNING & EVENING:  Add to this bowl two-three drops of tea tree oil.  Fill it with warm water and let the sponge emerge.  Gently squeeze out the water and wipe away the days debris from your face and neck.  What does Tea Tree Oil do for your skin.  1) It kills bacteria  2) It’s a natural alternative to Benzoyl Peroxide    Another option is cleansing wipes.  The Tea Tree bowls are available at Ma Jolie Salon & Spa. 

EXFOLIATE

EVENING TWICE A WEEK.  Exfoliate/scrub can make you see and feel a huge difference in your skin. It is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface and making your face feel fresh, clean and smooth.   It’s the one thing you have to do twice a week in the evening.

It is agreeable that exfoliating is automatically done with their shaving process, however, that is not enough. It doesn't cover your full face and it’s just limited to the area you shave.

TONE:  

Toning is important for you too.  But the question is, will you take the additional step?   Learn more about toner/astringent here

MOISTURIZE

MORNING & EVENING:  When you shave, you remove moisturizing oils from your face; and then to cool down those burns you splash after shave lotion which is almost always alcohol based and further dehydrates your skin.  Moisturizer is a MUST for men.
