The Best Facial for Your Skin
Over three decades, we have created a wide and comprehensive range of high-performance and renowned facial treatments to serve the various skin needs and concerns of our discerning clients in Singapore. They may be students, housewives, “tais-tais”, professionals, business executives, celebrities or even royalties. We’re proud to say that some of them has been with us since their twenties and are now grandparents. And one of the common attributes is that they all look at least a decade or more younger for their age. Hence, we are serving a 3-generation clientele, and to some we are the family’s beauty secret.
However, for first-time customers, it may be quite daunting as to which is the best facial for them and to book first. Especially, when there is a gamut of facial services on our spa menu. Well, we hope that this will be a good guide to help you decide the best facial for your skin – at any time and over the years.
First Things First Before You Book That Facial
First, you need to determine your skin type and its needs, and what do you hope to achieve. For example, you may want a natural lift or to critically hydrate your dry and tired skin. Then, you may choose the best facial treatment to target that concern. Of course, if you not know or are unable to decide, we will be most happy to professionally advise you as to what is best for you, both on a short-term and long-term basis.
Now, here are 7 different types of facials that we have decoded to make it easier for you to decide. The facials are in an order as you may need or want to indulge over the years, beginning from the teens and early twenties.
1. Anti-Acne Facial
An anti-acne facial is a treatment that targets specifically against acne, which usually includes facial extractions for a deep cleanse and removal of blackheads. There are many types of anti-acne ingredients and formulations that are used to treat acne. In our case, we use a unique green clay and precious botanical ingredients infused synergistically with curative Swiss Spa water, to balance oil glands and stop bacteria growth. Hence, through its detoxifying and deep-clearing action, it will make the skin smoother and shine-free.

2. Hydrating Facial
A hydrating facial is one of the most-booked facials for those prone to having dehydrated skin as a result of both internal and external factors. For example, you may not be drinking enough water or are working in a environment that tends to dehydrate your skin. Moisturization is the key here with the use of ultra-hydrating masks, lotions and serums. The extra bonus is the soothing effects of the facial due to the deep moisturization, resulting in a softer, refreshed and smoother skin.

3. Brightening Facial
This is a facial to the rescue if your skin always look dull, tired and lifeless. A brightening facial usually employs a combination of masks, enzyme peels and acid treatments to remove dead-skin buildup. Our C-Matrix© Vitamin C Facial, a revered and yet pampering facial that uses Vitamin C as a key ingredient to brighten, firm and energise your face for a radiant and luscious look. It also works to stimulate cell renewal and to revivify lifeless and stressed skin.

4. Clarifying/Deep-Cleansing Facial (for Congested Skin and Maintenance)
A clarifying and usually deep-cleansing facial works to intensively detoxify, clear impurities, reduce blemishes and refine pores. It works exceedingly well to fully restore the balance for a radiant, fresh and clear skin and is perfect as a maintenance facial for beautiful skin. For congested skin, it works to clear out clogged sebum and eliminate blackheads. Extractions do most of the heavy lifting for a deep cleanse. And although they may leave your skin slightly pink immediately after, a good professional facial should never hurt. Gentle peels, like lactic or AHA, also help dissolve the outer layers of skin to resurface it and keep pores clean.
5. Firming and Contouring Facial
This is the facial to go for if you want a firmer and well-contoured look. This may involve the use of a hand-held device to give your face an “uptoning” facial massage for a more lifted appearance. Yes, your face may twitch and vibrate awkwardly. Other contouring facials also incorporate massaging techniques and the use of slimming face masks to firm. Hence, the facial works to restore facial contours, reduce fatty deposits and improve skin natural tone and texture.
6. Anti-Aging Facial
An anti-aging facial may comes under many other different names, such as age-reversing facial, anti-wrinkle facial, age-management facial or even youth-boosting facial. However, all works to let you look beautifully younger for your age and many attack signs of aging on all fronts: with cleansing, resurfacing (often as microdermabrasion), brightening and hydrating effects. We certainly have a whole gamut of anti-aging facials, depending on the need, skin condition and expectations of our clients. But first and foremost, we always advocate natural, safe and non-invasive facial methods for long-term beautiful results with minimal or no side-effects.
7. Microdermabrasion Facial
A microdermabrasion facial is one of the fastest ways to get your face to radiate with a new well-toned, natural and younger look, whatever the age of your skin. This is achieved by buffing away the layers of dead skin that have accumulated from age and sun exposure. In microdermabrasion, which is like a super-scrub, a pressurized jet scours the skin with micronized crystals and then vacuums the dead cells away. Despite a mild stinging sensation immediately after, clients can head right to a cocktail party or business function.
