Facials have become all the rave of recent and they have earned their place.

The problem?

We just do not know how to do them right and if we have to book them, those strange names are usually daunting and confusing at best.

Most know next to nothing about them.

Here are the 5 ultimate type of facials, to make your choice come more easily.

Lymphatic facial massage

Kneading targeted points on the face can unlock strain and even help temporarily reduce puffiness.

Some spas call out the service specifically, usually including the word 'lymphatic' somewhere in the name.

Otherwise, you can ask which facial includes the treatment when booking.

Microdermabrasion Facial

The fastest way to get a healthy, youthful glow is to buff away the layers of dead skin that have accumulated from age and sun exposure.

In microdermabrasion, a pressurized jet scours the skin with micronized crystals (usually aluminum oxide) and then vacuums the dead cells away.

Make sure the spa uses a device on which they can adjust the grit so that it is appropriate for your skin type.

Don't book this service the day of an event, since your cheeks may be a little sore immediately afterward.

Acupuncture facial

During this procedure, about 30 needles are pushed approximately 1 millimeter into your frown lines, forehead, and crow's-feet.

It actually doesn't hurt as much as you'd think, some people barely even feel the pricks.

The needles are plucked out after about 15 minutes, and an hour later, skin looks radiant and eyes are brighter.

LED facials

This facial harnesses the specific wavelengths in LED light to calm breakouts and inflammation, making it ideal for those with acne-prone skin and redness.

A single treatment can improve both, but for severe breakouts, it may take closer to three sessions to notice a dramatic reduction.

Diamond file facials

This is the Elizabeth Taylor of facials, practically the best of the best.

Actual crushed diamonds are filed over the skin and although the service's claims of completely resurfaced skin are lofty, this one really does fade dark spots.

Your decision just became that much easier.
