        1. yes…provided u get it done by expert hands….!!! the best part is that the accumulated dust within the pores are cleaned so well….!! the best time is when a soothing mask is applied and ur eyes are covered with wet cotton pads 🙂

  2. Nice info somreeta. Thanks a lot! I didnt knw that facial is so beneficial. I used to get facials done jst twice a year or so. Wil surely get it done more often.

    1. yes Payal…esp because we lead a hectic life and the dirt and pollution dat our skin suffers from…..its really great to combat that! :makeup: :makeup:

  3. :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: I had no idea that a facial has sooo many benefits!!!

    1. oh Pragnyadeepta :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: thank u and i hope u find it really useful as u start following the regime!!

  4. I would love to get a natural facial without the chemicals but it’s hard to find and spas are also very expensive for massages and all . I don’t know how to look for affordable spas in my area . :bowl:

  5. never got one myself! :-/ :-/ a friend of mine insists that facials make people look older n more mature…so i never bothered. :nababana:

    1. thats a myth Tinkerbell!! facials to look people mature and older? :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: i dont think so!!!

  6. Thanks for this..I always have a tough time deciding which facial to do when I go to the parlour (btw, i do tend to get bored at the end of it ‘cos i just can’t lie there doing nothing with a face pack on my face..ya ya its supposed to be relaxing but i just get so bored :jalwa: :jalwa: )

    for Combi/oily skin would you folks recommend the fruit facial? I am a little skeptical when i go becos I think they are trying to sell me the most expensive ones 🙂 :whistle:

    1. Hmm.. you probably have the workaholic bug or ‘too much thinking’ bug 😛

      For me, it would be a nice time to catch on the sleep that I keep on missing.. Aadhe ghante araam se so jaao O:)

      1. wohi tho..restless bug is more like it. its like a chore I have to get done with 🙂 the music is too loud sometimes with telugu songs (no offence meant but i dont understand the language) or the a/C is too much or those women are talking really loudly..for me its getting over with the facial..

        1. LOL Aruna…..that was so funny :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: facial is like a chore???? 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

  7. I did a Skin Brightening Facial last month, thats around 1600, that parlour lady convinced me enough to choose that one.. she told its advanced this that…
    But it was not that much effective at all, it was like normal facial only, my face got cleaned up thats it 😐

    :thanks: for your article, next time i will go for Fruit Facial :snicker:

    1. yes Shami…it is equally important that u dont get carried away coz ultimately, spending so much is not worth it!!! give fruit facial a try 🙂

  8. There’s a new kind of facial called bio whitening…has anyone tried it? Claims to treat every face area differently so as to give the face a uniform color… any reviews? ?:)
