So, I got a facial. To be honest, this was only my second facial ever and I think i’m hooked.
The first facial I ever got was about 5 months ago and it hurt so bad that it left me thinking, “maybe this whole fancy skin care routine isn’t for me.” I mean, imagine course sandpaper being rubbed all over your face for 45 minutes.
However, the hydrafacial was a completely different experience.
It was completely painless and I left GLOWING! You may be wondering, “What even is a hydrafacial?”
A hydrafacial consists of 3 steps and only takes 30 minutes.
- Cleanse and Peel : gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing
- Extract and Hydrate : Removes debris from pores with suction and nourish with hydration
- Fuse and Protect : Saturates the surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow
The cost varies depending on location but to me, it was worth every penny. I really struggle during the cooler months to maintain smooth skin. My t-zone will dry out and peel regardless of how much sugar scrubbing I do. This facial technique really infused my skin with a hydration unlike anything i’ve ever experienced.
The best and worst part?
The esthetician showing me how much oil and other disgusting stuff she got out of my face. I literally wanted to vomit. I had no idea that even though my skin looked clean, it really wasn’t.
Now, as a blogger i’m sure you want to see some before and after pictures. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any because my skin is so broke out from hormones right now that it honestly would not have done it justice. I also should have taken a picture of the horrid mixture which she extracted from my face but talk about embarrasinggggg. Maybe next time, friends.
I’m pretty sure I will be gifting tons of hydrafacials to friends and family alike because I truly loved it so much. Also, who wants to feel like they have to wear make-up everyday? Not me.
