Benefits of Back Facials

Did you know facials aren’t just for your face? Despite the name, there’s another spot on your body that loves a good skin treatment: your back!

Unless you have problems with back acne, you may not think of your back as a priority for skin treatment. With summer winding down, this is the perfect time to give the skin on your back a little extra love and attention. Here us out. Think about what you’ve put your skin through this summer. Sweat. Oily sunscreen. Sun exposure. Chlorinated pool water. Repeat.

All of these factors can take their toll on your skin, causing dehydration, clogged pores and dead skin cells to pile up. A back facial is the perfect remedy for bringing your skin back into harmony. Let’s look at some of the most common questions our clients have about this unique treatment.

What is a back facial anyway?

Quite simply, it’s a facial for your back. At Ella Bliss, the same expert estheticians who care for your face will apply the same knowledge, care and personalization to your back. We use IMAGE Skincare products, which contain proven ingredients and smart botanicals. In particular, we tend to use the Clear Cell line of products on the back, which are specially formulated for oily skin.

Much like a regular facial, we’ll utilize a customized mix of steam treatment, cleansers, exfoliators and moisturizers to clean, stimulate and nourish your skin.

What upgrades are available?

We highly recommend a few extra bits of relaxation while your back is being works on.

Sugar Scrub & Warm Towel – We don’t want the rest of your body feeling left out! With this upgrade, we’ll slather some love on your legs and feet. The sugar scrub is excellent for sloughing away dead skin cells and leaving your legs and feet feeling smooth. We’ll finish by wrapping them in hot towels, which feels incredibly relaxing.

CBD Lotion – We’ve talked about the benefits of CBD lotion in the past, highlighting its ability to ease pain, reduce inflammation and reduce anxiety. With this upgrade, we’ll massage the lotion into your hands and feet.

Anything else?

Much like a regular facial, you’ll want to drink plenty of water afterwards to continue eliminating the toxins and impurities the back facial cleared out. And don’t neglect your back on a daily basis! Treat it to a periodic body scrub so you’re regularly stimulating new skin cell growth, and make sure to moisturize and protect with sunscreen.

Now that you know the benefits of this often-overlooked treatment, it’s time to book a back facial at any of the Ella Bliss Denver-area locations.
