what is my skin type

What Is Your Skin Type?

Everyone’s skin is unique, of course, but in general, there are five different skin types. You may recognize yourself in one or more of these descriptions:

Normal Skin: Normal skin is neither dry nor oily and has an average pH balance and regular-size pores.

Dry Skin: Dry skin can feel rough, flaky, and tight and you may even experience peeling and cracking.

Oily Skin: The opposite of dry skin, oily skin will have visible oil in one or more areas. Your pores will easily clog with oily skin, and you may experience acne more often.

Sensitive Skin: Sensitive skin may often be red, blotchy, or irritated, and can sting or itch (or even break out in a rash) when skincare products are applied.

Combination Skin: As the name suggests, this type of skin is any combination of the other types listed. You may have an oily forehead but dry cheeks, or you might have a dry forehead and sensitive eye area. Any combo falls under this category.

acne facial

Acne Facial
Who’s it for? Oily, normal, combination  If you’re suffering from frequent breakouts, an acne facial can offer tremendous benefits, especially when you schedule them regularly. While this type of facial probably can’t cure your acne, it can significantly calm your breakouts and soothe inflamed skin. However, you should always ensure a professional aesthetician does your acne facials since the procedures can actually damage your skin if not done correctly.

With an acne facial, you can expect your technician to use a cleanser to remove dirt and oil from your skin and examine you to look for the causes of your acne. From there, they will use techniques like ultrasonic extraction to unclog your pores and remove blackheads and whiteheads, among other treatments.

brightening facial

Brightening Facial
Who’s it for? oily, normal, combination, sensitive, or dry skinLa Belle Vie Brightening facial is for those who want to cleanse, renew, and hydrate their skin. It’s an indulgent treat for those who don’t have too many issues with their complexion and just want to improve the overall look of their appearance. It’s also an ideal treatment to get right before a special occasion or as a way to pamper yourself.

Brightening facials help remove impurities and toxins from the skin with a deep cleaning followed by a gentle exfoliation that leaves your skin bright and glowing. They can also stimulate the production of collagen, which can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. As a result, you’ll leave the spa with a more youthful appearance and a radiant glow.

It’s a multi-step treatment that can help relax tight or stiff facial muscles, clean your pores, brighten your skin tone, and give you a renewed and refreshed look.

Along with cleaning, exfoliating, and an antioxidant mask, you’ll have Led Light Therapy and a Gua Sha Facial Massage. You’ll be in great hands as your aesthetician applies just enough pressure to your facial muscles, kneading your forehead and massaging your jawline and cheekbones. This has the effect of stimulating the lymphatic system and removing toxins and impurities.

Who’s it for? oily, normal, or combination skinThe Signature Facial at Labelle Vie is what you want when your complexion feels toxic and polluted.

Together, you can come up with a goal to help you look your best.

Purifying Facial
Who’s it for? oily, normal, or combination skinOur purifying facial goes a step further when it comes to cleansing your complexion. Of course, for some, our signature cleansing facial is enough. But if you’ve gone years without a deep-cleaning treatment, it might be time to schedule a purifying facial.

With this treatment, we do a deep cleaning that removes excel oil, blackheads, whiteheads, and impurities. We will also unblock your follicles and extract dirt and debris from your pores. If you are feeling puffy or experiencing frequent breakouts, a purifying facial can work remarkably well. When we’re finished, your face will feel fresh, revived, and immaculately clean.

Hydrating Facial

La Belle Vie’s Hydrating Facial offers immediate relief that will help your complexion look dewy and healthy again.

We concentrate on hydrating your skin with this facial by bringing the right amount of water back into it and then locking in the moisture. Depending on your skin type and goals, we may use various skin care products and techniques to treat parched skin and bring back a supple and radiant look.


Who’s it for? normal, combination, or oily skinMicrodermabrasion is a facial treatment that utilizes a minimally abrasive device (think sand-paper but much gentler) to “sand” your skin. The goal is to remove the dull, thick outer layer and reveal the new skin cells underneath.

Our aestheticians can treat discoloration, sun damage, light scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and more with microdermabrasion. This treatment is also ideal for stimulating the growth of collagen. Essentially, microdermabrasion is a strong exfoliating treatment that can rejuvenate even the dullest complexion.

Diamond Glow Facial

Diamond Glow Facial
Who’s it for? normal, combination, or oily skinOur most luxurious facial at LaBelle Vie is the Diamond Glow Facial. You may already be familiar with this treatment that gets its name from the diamond-tipped instrument used during the procedure. For the ultimate in feel-good treatments (both during and after), the Diamond Glow Facial is unmatched.

This is a multi-step treatment that involves three steps: extraction, exfoliation, and infusion. During the first two stages of the treatment, your aesthetician will do a deep cleaning with the diamond-tipped wand, exfoliating the surface of your skin and extracting impurities from your pores. Then, once your pores are open, we will infuse one or more custom serums into your face to bring you your best complexion ever.
