To paraphrase Shakespeare, “How do I pamper thee? Let me count the ways.”
As any spa aficionado knows, there are countless ways in which we can indulge ourselves. From massages and body treatments to manicures and pedicures, each has its own special way of letting us relax and unwind – and feel more confident and attractive when we head home or back to the office.
But facials seem to be in a class of their own. Anyone who has ever had a facial can attest to their therapeutic properties – after all, where else can you address your skin’s unique challenges and concerns while letting someone, literally, stroke away the worries of the day? Facials offer a unique combination of cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturizing to effectively deep clean clogged pores and remove layers of dead skin cells. By so doing, they help maintain healthy skin, and make our faces look younger and feel fresher to boot!
At Ecobeautica Wellness Center in Brooklyn, trained aestheticians work their magic fingers to deliver unparalleled relaxation and pampering. After taking the time to speak with you and determine the root cause of your particular skin situation, they address your concerns with a customized, invigorating treatment. Facials range from their Classic European, Oxygen and signature Ecobeautica Facials to those especially geared for men and those suffering from acne.
But what about a yoga facial? Yes, you heard that correctly – a yoga facial. The skilled technicians at Eurobeautica like to refer to it as a “relaxing, rejuvenating yoga retreat for your face.” And that pretty much sums it up right there – like a traditional facial, it involves cleansing to remove any dirt or makeup, toning to rebalance the skin and make it a neutral base to work with, exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and reveal the new ones beneath, moisturizing to replenish the skin’s hydration, and repairing the skin with vitamins and nutrients.
But where the yoga facial differs is in the additional touches. In addition to the steps mentioned above, your aesthetician will use a combination of facial massage, stretches and breathing along with deep cleansing, warm stones and aromatherapy. The result? Like a therapeutic yoga class, you’ll leave feeling more centered, balanced and calm.
Again, it all starts with determining any underlying conditions that might be contributing to your particular skin’s condition. For example, if your skin is dry or oily, dull or pigmented, or has a predominance of acne pustules or pimples, it just might be due to something else other than your skincare regimen. Let Ecobeautica’s holistic philosophy help find the root cause of your skin concerns so they can customize the perfect treatment for you.
