Our Facial course is taught intensively over 1 day, in which we will provide you with all of the information and techniques to perform a comprehensive and highly marketable professional deep cleansing facial treatment, incorporating a double cleanse, toning, skin analysis, exfoliation, skin warming (hot towels and steaming), facial massage including the decollete, neck and shoulders, mask and moisturise.

On the course you will have the opportunity to not only learn how to do a professional facial, but to receive one also.
