As you ponder your New Year’s resolutions, why not get the year off to a great start by dedicating an hour to a relaxing and rejuvenating facial?

Whether your facial is a one-time event to kick off 2021 or you want to add it to your skin care routine, you can find a facial to fit every type of skin and cosmetic need. 

According to Refinery 29, High-quality facial treatments can improve the texture, tone, and overall health of your skin. Depending on the type of facial you receive, it can also help correct some skin conditions. Your facial treatment should include one or more of the following benefits:

  • Deep cleaning: Removes debris
  • Exfoliation: Smooths and stimulates skin
  • Increased circulation: Promotes healthy skin
  • Detoxification: Draws out impurities that clog pores
  • Anti-aging: Softens the appearance of wrinkles
  • Skin treatment: Uses products to treat dryness, oiliness, and redness

A facial should always be customized to meet your cosmetic needs. You can find various facials in Nairobi that promise to renew and rejuvenate your skin. Here are 5 facials to try out:
