When it comes to skincare, we're all for learning about the latest treatments and wonder products to get our skin looking our best. From carbon laser facials to testing out jade skin rollers - we're all for it.
Sometimes, though, we do like to treat ourselves to a professional facial, especially when our skin feels extra tired and down in the dumps, but we do like to do our research beforehand.
A fire and ice facial is loved by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, but it's a pretty new treatment on the block, so we're done all the research for you. You're welcome.
What is a fire and ice facial?
According to the four seasons spa website (where we imagine Kim K gets her done), the facial treatment is 'an intensive clinical treatment is designed to resurface the skin rapidly and safely.'
Two professional masques are combined (fire and ice) with carefully-selected iS Clinical products to optimise results, the treatment has been hailed by professionals and celebrities alike for its wealth of benefits and zero downtime. The facial uses clinically formulated with the purest pharmaceutical grade ingredients.
Performed in two steps and using two masks with different ingredients, a warm mask is applied followed by an ice mask soon after, perfectly complimenting the benefits of both.
You finish off the facial with a final cleanse and a strong sunscreen are applied to the face before you go.
The facial bridges a gap between a mild facial and an invasive peel. Fire and ice facials are suitable for all skintypes, including those with skin disorders such as Sun Damage and Rosacea.
What is a fire and ice facial also known as?
It is similar to the more known enzyme or chemical peel, which is a facial treatment that helps to rid your complexion of dead skin cells for glowier, more gorgeous skin.

A fire and ice facial is performed by professionals so it's not recommended, no.

As well as helping to revitalise skin, the Fire & Ice Facial can also help to clear acne and improve acne scarring as part of a treatment program, in conjunction with our cosmeceutical skincare products.
The facial helps with exfoliation, skin tone, reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes. It encourages cell renewal, treats problematic skin, and the glow that it leaves is apparently INSANE.
