There’s no doubt about it. Winter is tough on your skin, your back included. Being a difficult place to reach for many people, your back may not always get the care that it needs. The results can range from dry, itchy skin to breakouts. A back-cial can combat the dryness and leave you feeling refreshed.
What is a Back-cial?
It’s actually quite simple. A back-cial is like a facial, but for your back. It is a multi-step skin treatment that will cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize one of your hardest-to-reach places.
What Can I Expect?
Your back-cial will be an incredibly relaxing experience. Your back will get a deep cleansing and exfoliation with a blueberry and coffee scrub. You will be treated to a pore cleansing and muscle-relaxing steam, as well as extractions for any problem areas. A high-frequency treatment will help to improve the condition of your skin, and a mask will moisturize and draw out impurities. You also have the option of adding a chemical peel for additional exfoliation.
What Are the Benefits?
Relaxing skin treatments like a back-cial reduce stress leaving you feeling rejuvenated. You will immediately notice softer, smoother skin on your back. Freshly exfoliated skin will be better able to absorb moisturizers to keep it soft and supple. In the weeks following your back-cial you may see a decrease in breakouts as well as healing of dry skin.
What About Aftercare?
Your esthetician will recommend skin care products to use between treatments that are well suited for your skin type. The products recommended will also target your specific skin issues as needed. A monthly back-cail will give you the best long term results.
