Living with spot-prone oily skin, or dry, peeling and flaky skin on your face can not only make you self-conscious, it can have an impact on your mental wellbeing too. It can be frustrating not knowing what treatment out there will actually benefit you without having to pay thousands of dollars. However, we’ve found the top three beauty treatments of 2020 for your face.
1. Facial Massage
While this isn’t a new technique, since facial massages have been around for centuries, many people are unaware of the benefits to your skin that this ancient practice can have! You can simply use your fingers to sweep across your acupuncture pressure points on the face in one direction, which helps to encourage the blood flow towards your muscles and provide them with oxygen for recovery. This not only helps to strengthen your cheekbones by working the muscles, but you can keep your skin looking smooth too by encouraging the collagen production in your face.
There are a number of tools that can aid you in facial massages at home, like jade rollers, which can help you to drain your lymphatic system in the face by running the roller along your acupuncture and energy lines. This helps your face appear less bloated, and firmer. Ensure that your face is well-oiled or cleansed before massaging your face with clean hands, so that you don’t pull on your skin too hard. Of course, if you really want to treat yourself, you can have a professional face massage to let the experts do it for you! The Buccal Massage is renowned for being an ‘instant’ face-lift amongst celebrity circles.
2. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a solution that is applied to the skin on your face to get rid of the old, dead skin cells, and help to encourage your skin to grow new, healthier cells. Chemical peels come in three different intensities, known as ‘superficial’, ‘medium’ and ‘deep’. You’d be right in assuming that if your face has acne-scarring, a deeper treatment is more suitable. However, it can take some time to recover from deep chemical peels. Yet, if you combine a lighter chemical peel with another technique known as dermaplaning technology, you can complement and boost the effects of the chemical peel on your skin.
3. Light and Vibration Therapy
There are plenty of at-home technologies which can encourage the collagen production and improve your skin’s elasticity. This makes your face appear smoother and lifted, which is great if you suffer from melasma, hyperpigmentation, or wrinkles. These techniques are also extremely useful for targeting breakouts and smoothing acne scarred skin. Light therapy comes in the form of blue or red light devices, which trigger the target reactions in your skin. Alternatively, you can use a vibrating device designed to pass small electronic microcurrents through your skin to tighten and lift the face.
Now that you’ve read through 2020’s top three beauty treatments for your face, we’ve undoubtedly piqued your interest in the potential ways that you can resolve your skin problems – which techniques or treatments are you going to start using?
