Dull, dry and spotty skin – we've had it all. Staying indoors hasn't been kind to our visage – at least no one outside of our household saw! – but with the UK opening up, it's a high time to whip it back into shape. And the most enjoyable way of doing so? Getting a facial.

As well as rejuvenating and cleansing your skin, facials can help you destress, as they activate the sympathetic nervous system which reduces anxiety and uplifts your mood. If you weren't convinced by their detoxing, anti-ageing, acne eliminating capabilities, think of it as an opportunity to fully relax from the stress-inducing lives we live. Find our picks of our favourite treatments below.

Skinworks Signature Facial
Skinworks zen ambience within their newly opened Soho clinic – they were previously based in Alex Eagle – can also be felt through their facials. Their 70 minute Signature facial will have you feeling calm and collected, as well as giving your skin a glow boost from the Antioxidant and Galvanic infusion, a deep cleanse from the anti-bac pore extraction and tension-releasing neck, shoulder and arm massage. If you're in need of some beneficial 'me time', this is the spot to go to.

Their Signature facial is a force to be reckoned with; consisting of microdermabrasion, an enzyme treatment – which smells delightfully of chocolate brownies coming out the oven – Oxygen RX, a cooling face mask and a plasma shower, your skin will look tighter, brighter and a whole lot healthier.
