Benefits of facial

    * Aging can be slowed down - By facial massage and mask, you can maintain youthful, healthy looking skin.
    * Removes deeply embedded dirt - Dirty particles embedded in the skin which cause acne and rash cannot be removed by washing alone. By facial massage and mask, the skin temperature increases, opening the pores and removing these particles.
    * Maintain a Healthy Epidermis and Dermis - With aging, blood circulation becomes worse. When blood circulation is improved with facial massage and mask, sufficient oxygen and nutrients are transported to create a healthy epidermis and dermis.
