EL PASO- Facials help us take care of our skin by thoroughly cleansing it, but a salon in East El Paso has a facial that they say can do even more than that.
The Russian facial is supposed to help tighten skin, detoxify your body and relax you. One woman swears by the special technique, which she gets done at Salone Trevizzo in East El Paso every month. Josie Olivas, a great-grandmother, credits the Russian facials she's been getting for the past four years for helping her turn back the hands of time. "It’s really done a lot of wonders for me," said Josie.
Pouran Javaher learned about the Russian facial technique in her native Iran and she's done it for the past 12 years. "It’s just like a body massage. It's physical and spiritual, so it's going to help you," said Pouran.
The Russian facial involves massaging the face to get the circulation going, which Pouran says helps minimize saggy skin, wrinkles and puffy eyes.
Josie says the special facial has helped her with a number of issues. "I used to have an age spot and it's gone away. I have seen that my muscles under my throat are stronger," said Josie.
Pouran says besides diminishing saggy skin and wrinkles, the massage also helps with blood flow and that leads to a number of other benefits. "It firms the muscle. It's detoxing. It's for circulation. It's for wrinkle, minimize the wrinkle," said Pouran.
Pouran uses all-natural ingredients, herbs, vegetables and fruits during the facial. She mixes different ingredients, depending on the person's skin type, to make a mask mixture. "Even some of my ingredients like herbs I grow it in my backyard because I can't find it here," said Pouran.
Josie says the combination of all-natural ingredients plus the facial massage has worked so well, her family and her friends have taken notice. "Sometimes they don't even recognize me. I have to tell them, 'Hi. Remember me? I'm Josie.' 'Oh hi, Josie.' So there is a difference."
Josie has gotten even some of her neighbors to come and try out the Russian facial and see the difference it could make with their skin.
"I hope everybody does try. If they haven't tried it yet, that they do come and experience it," said Josie
