At Urban Spa salon in Bishop’s Stortford, we offer the best professional facial treatments to suit your individual skin needs, all performed by our team of highly experienced beauty therapists.

Every day our skin faces pollution, dirt, grime, and dead skin cells accumulating on the face, and unfortunately there is no way to avoid it. We can do our best to keep it clean but often this isn’t enough and the skin doesn’t get the thorough attention it needs. This means we can end up spending a lot of money of skin products that go to waste when in the long run, regular facials are often more affordable and effective.

What happens to your skin during a facial?

You will notice that after a facial your make-up goes on more smoothly and evenly. During a facial your therapist deeply cleanses and exfoliates the face, this allows all your products to fully absorb and do their jobs properly. You will definitely find less product goes a long way, making your product last longer and saving you money. Facial’s will also improve your skins tone, texture and elasticity caused by air pollution and sun exposure, this will save you money on expensive anti-aging products and procedures.

One of the most important steps in a facial is exfoliation. This step helps to jump start cell turnover, encouraging the growth of new healthy cells. This is great news for all skin types, particularly those wanting to improve the appearance of acne scars. Unlike the hundreds of thousands of skin care products that are on the market, the results are instant. After just one facial, you are sure to see immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin, which is why your Urban Spa therapist will recommend appropriate homecare products to ensure those improvements remain.

How often should I have a facial and how to I make the results last?

It is recommended that you have a facial every 30 days to keep your skin looking its best. In between your facials you should look after your skin by washing your face a moisturizing daily. The most important thing to apply to your skin daily is some form of sun protection. Even in the winter, this is essential to prevent the damage that the sun causes to our skin, the easiest way is to use moisturizers or foundations that contain SPF.

Let’s be honest, we are all guilty of trying to squeeze our spots, but by doing this you are risking acne scaring and dark marks. A professional will carry out professional extractions during your facial, this will prevent any long-term damage that you might be causing to your skin at home. It is likely that you will find that by having regular facials you need no longer need to pick and pop your spots yourself.

Most of all, having regular facials will mean you will get to know your therapist and they will get to know your skin. They will quickly become your saviour when it comes to your skin, and will be able to answer any question you may have. Be sure to book in with one of our professionals at Urban Spa to start your journey to flawless and fabulous skin.
