Skin experts have long praised the benefits of exfoliation. Aside from clearing away a dull layer of dead skin (ick) and giving you a smoother, more radiant complexion, regular exfoliation also allows products to seep more easily into the skin.
Enter Aveda’s Tulasara Dual Exfoliation Facial, a non-invasive treatment for softer and more radiant skin. After removing my makeup using Tulasara Professional Cleanser, my aesthetician, Alex at Civella Salon & Spa in Rosedale, Toronto, applied Aveda’s Tourmaline Refiner, a physical exfoliant containing bits of bamboo and finely ground tourmaline to smooth and recharge the skin. The scrubbing sensation was palpable, yet satisfying.
Next up, Aveda’s Professional Plant Peel, a mask that literally warms to the touch to open pores and draw out toxins. After that came the coolest part — literally and figuratively. Alex deeply cleansed and purified my skin by pouring cool water over Dead Sea salt applied directly to the skin. Talk about refreshing!
Then came time to rebalance my complexion using Tulasara Bright Concentrate and Professional Recovery Serum, followed by Aveda’s Tourmaline Radiance Masque, rolled onto the skin with chilled rose-quartz gemstone to boost the mask’s effects. Finally, Alex applied Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics Soft Cream and Energizing Eye Cream to lock in moisture and protect my skin.
I was left feeling relaxed and refreshed, not to mention curious about how my skin would fare after such a thorough treatment. Looking in the mirror, I noticed my complexion looked fresher and brighter on the spot. Better still, the glow lasted for days with zero post-facial peeling or redness.
