Dating back to pre-historic times, facial rejuvenation is one of the most effective treatments that both stimulates circulation and improves skin tone. In fact, the soothing balance of deep meditation and detoxification breathes new life into your skin. With pollution, erratic work hours and hectic lifestyle taking a toll on your health, maintaining a healthy and radiant skin at all times can be difficult but not impossible. “Well, youngsters today lead sedentary and unhealthy lives. And, this invariably has an adverse effect on their bodies. Lifeless skin is a result of fatigue and poor nutrition. Most of the facial treatments today have been customised for different skin types. By following some simple procedures everyday, you can retain that glow in your skin,” said a chirpy Shobha, trainer at Green Trends Salon, J P Nagar.

A complete stress buster —  facial treatments indeed open up the gateway to heaven. Aside from providing deep nourishment; these intensely hydrating techniques also energise the skin. The Divine Glow facial makes use of natural lightening and glow enhancing agents that will make your skin light and supple. This treatment has been carefully designed with ingredients like Kokum butter and olive oil extracts to reduce hyper pigmentation, lighten spots and restores the glow in your skin. And, like all facial treatments, this too begins with cleansing, where you rid the skin off grime and makeup. “The effects of facial sessions result in a more vibrant skin tone. Here, first the lotion is applied all over the face and neck. The product is then left on the skin for a while so that it dissolves all the dirt and oils. After about two minutes, a clean cloth or facial tissue is used to wipe the face,” said Shobha.

A facial toner is then applied on areas prone to acne and blemishes. This is one of the most important steps in any skin care regiment as it also assists in the complete absorption of nutrients. Not only does this purify the pores but it also balances and hydrates the tissues. The next step makes use of an enzyme mask. “The mask is rich in healing enzymes and plays an active role in exfoliating the skin. It is left for about ten minutes after which a skin whitening complex is applied. This is equipped with antioxidants and revitalising properties that will restore balance in the skin. Using an ultrasonic machine, all the elements are then allowed to penetrate the skin layers thereby retaining the moisture content. A massage cream that offers both hydration and aromatherapy is then applied on the face for about fifteen minutes followed by a peel off mask and serum,”  she further added.

While most of these treatments will rejuvenate and transform your skin; it is also important to maintain a regular routine for skin care. Besides, what better way to pamper yourself on a lazy afternoon than indulge in a luxurious

facial massage.

The facial session lasts for 60 minutes and is priced at `1,500.
