Skin congestion is a common problem many of us face, regardless of our age or skin types. Resulting in blocked pores, blackheads, unevenness and dullness, it’s important that you tackle these issues right away. Here’s one way you can banish blocked pores and skin congestion to reveal bright, new skin.
For healthy skin, it’s always advisable to have a regular facial, tailored to your skin needs. Not only does it keep everything in check, it’s a good way to get a professional deep clean to prevent any future skin problems. The Dr. Murad facial at Blush and Blow in London’s Parsons Green is one way to cleanse and polish the skin to reduce the risk of breakouts.
Founded 25 years ago as a holistic skincare brand, focusing on internal as well as external skin health, the products are a combination of science that actually works and gentle ingredients that make your skin glow. The facial treatment at Blush + Blow is one of three non-invasive facials on the salon’s menu. Alongside the Sönd and Environ services, the Dr Murad with Vitamin C mask and extractions is ideal for normal or combination skin.
Blush + Blow Facial
Before your facial, the therapist will thoroughly asses your skin and ask lifestyle questions to gauge the objective of your treatment. Pollution from living in the city, as well as build up of dirt and excess sebum can result in spots, dullness and dryness.
Starting off with a deep double cleanse to remove makeup and dirt, a gentle glycolic peel will be applied as a mask. Instead of invasive treatments such as microdermabrasion, glycolic peels work to revive the skin by gently removing the topmost layer. It deeply exfoliates and brightens your complexion immediately without being harsh on the skin.
Facial steaming and extractions are the best way to get rid of blackheads and excess oils and if done by a professional, the results are really noticeable. The Murad facial also includes a super relaxing massage to lift and tone the skin leaving you feeling plump and sparkly by the end.
Keep the Effects of your Facial
To keep the results of your facial for longer between treatments, be sure to gently exfoliate once a week with either a flannel, a gentle exfoliant or a sonic cleansing brush. Toning your skin after cleansing will help to clarify the pores and will optimize the effects of your moisturizer.
