Back & Body Facials before Bikini Season

Our largest organ is our skin.  We need to take care of it just like we do the rest of our body.  Sleeping, eating well, and exercising helps with your overall health, and especially your skin.  While a back facial may seem silly and pointless, it is not only helpful to those who like exposing their back with their swimsuits or garments, it can contribute greatly to good skin health. Skin care should not be limited to your face and neck. Your back deserves some pampering too!

Summer is only a few short months away, you are likely getting ready to show off some more skin at the beach, pool, or lake.  Our backs can be an area of skin distress like acne, dryness, and irritation.

Facials are obviously designed to address the skin on the face, helping to eliminate and prevent acne and skin blemishes.  As helpful and important as facials are, back facials are even more important – mainly because the back is very difficult to reach and properly clean.  Some scrubbing tools can be helpful to unclog pores and help to prevent skin problems, but we are just not able to properly moisturize the back in the way that is needed to handle dry skin or other skin problems.  In a back facial, the aesthetician can give the back the thorough and deep cleaning and moisturizing it desperately needs.

Many estheticians begin a back facial with a steaming session designed to open the pores and enhance the more relaxing components of the session. From there, back facials involve a process of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin on the back.  Most back facials will include an extraction process to clear out blocked pores and reduce the severity of any present back acne.

Post back facial, you might find your back skin to be red or mildly irritated.  This is normal.  Post care should involve regular moisturization.
