The importance getting a facial treatment
Getting someone else to do your skin is one of the most luxurious and pampering treat you can give yourself. We know it’s a special occasion, which is why we go to great lengths to ensure our facial treatments are the ultimate in self-indulgence, targeted at rehydrating and strengthening your skin barrier.

In that process however, there will be a few steps which may cause your skin to freak out for a while.
The scrub mask is one of them, a manual process to remove dead skin cells. Some skins, especially sensitive ones, may not like scrubs very much as it causes irritation. If you exfoliate at home already, a scrub mask may cause over exfoliation which creates tiny cracks in the surface of the skin barrier, leading to moisture loss and those nasty inflammation.
At Béaute Library, we go the extra step in evaluating your skin and customising treatment steps to suit your skin type in order to maximise your experience.
Over time, our pores will get clogged, which leads to blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. The dirt in our pores need to be manually removed in a step aptly called extraction . Some find that the process to be quite painful, and we hardly ever recommend individuals with dry skin to undergo this step. Extracting removes the impacted pore, but it can also bring out sedentary blemishes a lot sooner, known as post-facial breakouts.
A mask will be applied to soothe and calm the skin post-extraction. We believe in the power of flora, which is why our floral masks are so dear to us! We use real (REALLY real) flower petals in our signature floral masks, and we will always customise the mask according to what your skin craves so you’ll hardly ever get one that irritates your skin.
If ever after a treatment you experience an immediate discomfort, do leave a note to our beautician so we can customise future treatments accordingly.
However, if discomfort such as redness, itchiness, or breakouts should occur within 7 days after your initial treatment, then give us a ring! We provide complimentary Beauté Soothing. Treatment to calm and soothe all your skin woes. Just a little boost to keep it looking its best.
