There is an “F” word in the beauty world that causes quite a stir. No, not freckles or fake lashes but the holy grail of beauty treatments: the facial. Everyone who has ever had one has an opinion about where to go, what to do and who to consult when it comes to their skin.
But where to start? There are laser beauty treatments, blood creams, LED sessions, hydrafacials, chemical peels, IPL photo rejuvenation, serums and masks, treatments to fight melasma, hyperpigmentation and acne-prone skin, to name but a few options. It can make the process of choosing a facialist, and finding the treatment that best suits our skin, overwhelming and even daunting.
Enter our Vogue staffers to calm your pre-facial nerves. Below, we’ve curated our tried-and-tested favourite facialists and treatments, and our hot tips when it comes to nailing your skincare approach. You’re welcome…
