"Shine bright like a diamond”
When Rihanna said this in her chartbuster ‘Diamonds’, we could not get enough of the groovy tune. But we also had a question, we know we want to shine, but how do we do it? Well, we think the answer lies in plain sight, a diamond facial!
Yep, you heard that right. An actual diamond facial with all the minerals and goodness of the precious and expensive stone intact. And why not? You are worth it! Let us tell you all about this facial so you can get it done the next time you visit a salon.
What are the benefits of a diamond facial
First of all, know that a diamond facial is very different from a diamond microabrasion. The two are not the same, as the latter involves a surgical cosmetic procedure using diamonds whereas the former is a facial, using products with diamond dust and extracts. The two are very different, so know what you are signing up for, and do not use the two interchangeably. Many salons and brands offer a diamond facial that can truly transform your skin with all the benefits it has to offer. Let’s take a look at all of them.
Diamond is a good exfoliating product. It boosts the regeneration of cells and removes dead ones to reveal the radiant skin beneath. It also increases the metabolic function of your skin that makes it shine bright like a diamond, truly.
2. Prevents ageing
Who wouldn’t like a miracle product that can not only impart a diamond-like glow, but also prevent the early and unwanted signs of ageing? Fortunately, a diamond facial ticks both the boxes. Diamond facials include many facial massages using creams and scrubs that stimulate blood circulation, thus delaying the early signs of ageing such as fine lines and crow’s feet.
3. Treats the skin
Whether you have dry skin or are suffering from severe tanning, a diamond facial is your one-stop solution for all your skin woes. It effectively treats all the concerns and gives your skin the glow it deserves. It even takes care of the pesky blackheads and whiteheads that form on your skin, especially if you have oily or combination skin. With regular sessions, a diamond facial can even get rid of the blackheads and whiteheads completely.
Are you someone who is out in the sun and pollution on a regular basis? Then you need a protective layer and a treatment that can reverse the damages. A diamond facial is good in that aspect. A diamond facial ensures that all the dirt and grime is removed from your face with its thorough process of cleansing, scrubbing, massaging and masking. It also opens up and cleans the clogged pores.
5. Controls breakouts
Suffering from acne, pimple or any other form of a breakout? Again, a diamond facial is your best friend. It helps unclog the pores that get choked due to external dust and pollution. A diamond facial helps clear the pores, works on blackheads and also clears the acne, thus making the face squeaky clean. It gives your skin some much needed glow.
6. Firms up the skin
A diamond facial in itself is a good anti-ageing procedure. As a result, it is also good for tightening and firming up the skin. It helps make up for the skin’s lost collagen and elasticity, making it look younger and tighter in appearance. It is also rich in natural ingredients that help improve the skin’s elasticity in a flawless manner.
7. Improves absorption
A diamond facial makes your skin more receptive to your current skincare regimen. Often when your pores are clogged and your skin is not clean, the products that you are using may not have positive effects as they are unable to penetrate further. A diamond facial gets rid of that issue. It increases the skin’s permeability and makes its absorption capabilities better.
Dry skin is low on sebum and needs constant hydration. A diamond facial is a healthy boost of the same, in one go. It keeps your skin hydrated, soft and supple for a long time with its nourishing qualities. By unclogging the pores, it also helps improve sebum production.
Dull skin? Again, a diamond facial will help rejuvenate it. It will help perk up the skin by getting rid of the dirt and grime and by giving the right glow. It also adds the right amount of moisture, shine and radiance to the skin and keeps it soft.
Of course, diamonds are known for their quintessential shine. A diamond facial too is known for the same. Apart from treating various concerns and imparting numerous benefits, a diamond facial brightens and evens out the complexion, adding a special radiance to it.
How to do a diamond facial at home
What if we tell you that you can do a diamond facial in the comfort of your home, you just need the right products! It is possible if you just follow the given steps!
Step 1: Diamond cleanser
The first step is to cleanse your face by using the diamond cleanser. Just pour some in your hands, lather it up and apply on the face. Massage for a few minutes and then rinse it off. Pat your face dry.
Step 2: Diamond scrub
This scrub has a gel-like texture with fine diamond granules inside to exfoliate. Take a coin-sized amount and massage on your wet face and neck in small circular motions. Do that for around three minutes and then wash it off.
Step 3: Diamond massage gel
Massage gel helps improve circulation and relaxes your skin after the cleansing and scrubbing process. Keep massaging the gel for around 10 minutes.
Step 4: Diamond massage cream
Use this immediately after the massage gel. Massage your face and neck for around 10 minutes with this cream.
Step 5: Diamond face pack
Once all the cleansing, exfoliating and massaging is done, now is the time to seal the deal with a diamond face pack. Mix it as per the instructions, apply and let it dry. Wipe it off with a wet cloth. Voilà! You have a skin that sparkles beautifully.
As a bonus step, some diamond facial kits also give a diamond serum. Once you are done with the facial, take the serum in your palms, rub them together and dab on the skin.
FAQs on diamond facials
Q. Can lactating or pregnant mothers get it done?
A. If you are a pregnant woman or even a lactating one, we’d advise against a diamond facial. However, the last word should be your doctor’s. If the doctor feels you can get a simple diamond facial done, go for it.
Q. Can I thread my eyebrows after the facial?
A. No. Do not go for any other procedure or service once you are done with the diamond facial. Your skin is sensitive due to the last procedure. Give it at least a day or two before you go for a threading session.
Q. Can I apply makeup after the diamond facial?
A. Again, don’t apply makeup. Your skin is sensitive and more prone to getting damaged. Thus, do not apply any makeup after the facial.
