While you are browsing for the luxurious facial treatment that is suitable for you online, how much do you really know about facial treatment?

A Brief History of Facial Treatments

The origin of facial treatments and the use of natural ingredients to help rejuvenate the skin can be dated back to 1500s - 1600s. At that time, women would do everything to maintain a pale skin, which was a symbol of power and wealth. For instance, it is believed that Queen Elizabeth I, along with other members of the upper class, used Ceruse, a substance made of vinegar and white lead to help bleach the skin. However, this substance is, in fact, toxic and dangerous. Doing more harm than good, Ceruse has undoubtedly created many cases of illness, even people at that time were not aware of what was causing their illness.

The trend for pursuing glowing and rejuvenating skin has further inspired other new facial treatments in the following years. In 1875, a new overnight sleeping beauty mask is known as Toilet Mask, which was invented by Madame Rowley to keep your complexion smooth and healthy.  There were more facial skin care products introduced in the 1990s. Apart from the Kemolite Radio-Active Beauty Plasma, a volcanic clay mud product, women visited a beauty salon regularly for a radium-infused mask treatment, which was later proven to be harmful and ineffective.

Today, the facial treatments provided by the best spa in London become more advanced and safe. Using natural materials, such as plants and mud, the chances of any harmful side effects and allergic reaction have been greatly reduced. The facial skin care products available in the market are not only limited to providing you with a youth-looking and glowing complexion but also include pore tightening and anti-ageing effects etc.
