But who says your back has to be left out of the fun?
Sure, a back facial may not immediately come to mind for quite as many people. But who says it can’t be just as rejuvenating and beneficial as other forward-facing esthetic treatments? If you’re wondering what exactly a back facial is, or why you should try one, we have all of the answers in one place for you ...
WHAT IS A BACK FACIAL?
A back facial is pretty much exactly what it sounds like — the beauty process of attending to the skin on your back in the same way one would typically attend to their facial skin in a spa setting.
Many estheticians begin a back facial with a steaming session designed to open the pores and enhance the more relaxing components of the session.
From there, back facials involve a process of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin on the back, in addition to applying a mask. Most back facials also include an extraction process to clear out blocked pores and reduce the severity of any present back acne.
WHY SHOULD I GET ONE?

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER A BACK FACIAL?
Similarly to post-facial care, you might find your back skin to be red or mildly irritated following your appointment, depending on the strength of products used to help aid your specific skin type.
In any case, post-care should involve regular moisturization, as well as any other product application as recommended by your esthetician. Additionally, if you have persistent and recurring back acne, it may take several back facial appointments to fully clear your skin.
