    Advice re. facials needed, please. 10th Apr 18 at 8:44 AM
    Hi people!

    For quite some time my skin has become very dry and sad-looking, and is in great need of a facial or three!

    However, looking at the lists in the windows of salons or online at their websites, there seem to be a million types of facials with fancy names and widely-ranging prices, and I am quite bewildered by them all.

    Plus, I haven't had a facial or visited a beauty salon for years.

    Can anyone give me any advice on what the main categories of facials are, and what's involved?

    Many thanks.

    Try your local college, Pyxis. The girls are supervised and you will have advice. Tend to be slow, though.

    Do you have any friends who can recommend a salon?

    Facials are a real treat for me.

    I hadn't thought of a college.

    It's just that every salon seems to have a myriad of different types, with names of facials that vary from salon to salon, and it's so confusing!

    I may not be a huge help but I usually pick the salon and tell them my skin type and then they will tell me which facial they would recommend! Each salon seems to use different products and techniques but they are usually helpful when recommending which facial to get which will suit your skin type!

    If you can find a self-employed small salon they can often be a lot cheaper.

    Iím in Scotland and the woman who does my massage and facial is an awful lot cheaper than other salons. I can recommend Environ facials if available in your town.
