Thread: facials! the price for vanity

  1. #1

    Default facials! the price for vanity

    i went for my first facial today! it was quite painful (but bearable) considering how many pimples/blackheads/whiteheads those beauticians had to squeeezeee for me. x_x aiyoh. then my face was a bit red after the whole thing but its apparently normal and will stay for about a day or two. the price for vanity. sighsigh!

    the beauticians were trying to psycho my friend and i into signing up for some package of 10 treatments at a discounted price. hums. 50bucks per Pure Oxygen Treatment wahh.

    haha just wondering how effective are these treatments and is it really necessary to do these treatments so regurlarly? i mean, i would think pimples kind of go away as you actually grow up right?

    comments from those who frequent these beauty parlours often? hehe.

    After u sign and pay up for the 10 treatment package, then at your next visit they would hard-sell u some lotions lah, tonics lah, creams lah etc. If u are the type who cannot resist a pretty girl sweet talk and hard-sell, then prepare to spend a lot of money for time to come...

    pimples DO lessen as you grow older. At least mine did... but only after 21 did it really subside to near nothingness. By then, the face already ravaged like war zone...

    I beg to differ. There were reports that even in their 20s or 30s, women (i dunno about men) may still be battling with ache problem. So its not that as one grows older, pimples will become lesser.

    However, 'itchy' may be right. Cos teenagers are more prone to pimples as they are undergoing hormonal changes (puberty),causing the skin to overproduce sebum. So as one grow old, their body hormones are more balanced in a sense, hence less pimple problem.

    If you are going for facials just to maintain your complexion and not for some facial problems, a simple facial treatment package consisting of cleanser, scrub, mask is enough already.

    In addition to that, develop a good skincare regimen at home, buy skincare products that are suitable for your skin type/condition.

    Cheers!

    If you shave often - how to grow?
    Maybe should be trimming?

    you're sad you don't have pimples?!?!! bishhh. everyone's jealous la haha. how do you effectively squeeze pimples anyway? if you don't do it properly then you either get major scarring or it gets infected and your face becomes a mighty warzone.
