Choosing the right facial for your skin type

Elemis Superfood Pro-Radiance Facial
The first step to choosing the right facial, is knowing your correct skin type. Have you ever received a facial and gone home feeling like your skin isn’t really improved – or is even worse? Treating oily skin with rich creams tailored to a dry complexion can be a recipe for disaster! Take a look at our handy blog post below, where we list the different skin types and needs, along with our Spa Manager’s recommended facial for each.

Our Spa Team are also brilliant for advising and recommending on the perfect facial for your skin type and will always assess your skin and needs prior to any treatment – so you don’t have to worry about making the wrong choice! For any additional advice, don’t hesitate to give them a call on 01244 572 199.



If your skin often feels like an oil-slick or you’re prone to pesky spots/acne, deep-cleansing and balancing facials are recommended. The aim of this kind of facial is to thoroughly clean the skin, unblock enlarged pores and balance oily patches.

We love: Elemis Touch: Skin Solutions Anti Blemish Mattify and Calm Facial or our CACI Skin Solutions Blemish Fix Facial (this uses LED light therapy to break down the bacteria which causes breakouts!)



Those with this skin type tend to have both oily and dry areas of the face. The oily section is often the T Zone (forehead, nose and chin). Skin can also be dehydrated in areas and will still be prone to blemishes, blackheads and enlarged pores.

We love: Elemis Touch: Anti-Ageing Dynamic Resurfacing Precision Peel (this facial is also fantastic for those who suffer from scarring) or our CACI Skin Solutions Hydrate and Repair Facial.



Dry skin can often feel tight, dull and flaky – this is due to this skin type struggling to maintain natural oils effectively. A nourishing or hydrating facial will be great for dry or dehydrated skin. Those with dry skin are also at greater risk of fine lines and wrinkles, making our anti-ageing selection a fabulous choice.

We love: Elemis Touch: Anti-Ageing Pro-Collagen Age Defy Facial or Elemis Touch: Skin Solutions Superfood Pro-Radiance Facial.



If your skin can become inflamed or irritated easily, then you may have a sensitive skin type. The ideal facial for this will include gentle soothing products to calm fragile skin.

If you’re starting to notice fine lines, wrinkles and sagging, then an anti-ageing facial is perfect to improve the look and feel of skin that has visible signs of ageing, with most of our facials having noticeable results after just one treatment!

We love: Any of our Elemis Touch Anti-Ageing Facials or our CACI Facials!



If you’ve lost your glow and your skin is looking a bit dull and drab, or if you suffer from an uneven skin tone or sun damage.

We love: Elemis Touch: Anti-Ageing White Brightening Pigment Perfector Facial or Elemis Touch: Skin Solutions Superfood Pro-Radiance Facial.
