Facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent pampering. They have enormous benefits to the health and wellness of your skin, both in the short and long term. When you consider all your regular visits to the dentist, hair salon, or gym, you should also be focusing some of that time on your skin. Here are six reasons why you should get facials regularly.
1 – Expert Skin Analysis
A benefit of getting your skin analyzed during a professional facial is that it will reveal your true skin type and allow our experts to cater to your unique needs with professional treatments and product suggestions for your home care routine.
2 – Professional Strength Exfoliation
Most facials include deep cleansing techniques, advanced exfoliation, or Microdermabrasion. Some of these exfoliating ingredients can be found in your skincare products, but during a facial, you will receive them at professional strength. Whichever exfoliation your aesthetician uses should be specifically catered towards your skin type. This will leave you with results that smooth the skin, increase cellular turnover, soften lines, and break up skin discoloration to promote more even-toned skin.
3 – Clean Out Blackheads and Clogged Pores
With proper preparation and skin softening techniques, your aesthetician will use a skilled method to gently extract clogged pores, blackheads, and impurities without causing harm to your skin. People usually have difficulty eliminating blackheads at home because home care products can only minimally reduce clogged pores. A professional aesthetician must adequately prepare and soften the skin before manual extractions can take place safely and effectively.
4 – Glowing, Youthful Skin
There is no doubt that the skin’s health is impaired when blood circulation slows. Aging leads to slowed circulation, inevitably resulting in dull, tired-looking skin. One important benefit of a facial is the massage. Along with warm steam, both processes help to increase blood flow bringing new nutrients to the skin. This encourages a youthful radiance and brings a glow to the skin’s surface.
5 – Stress Release
Aside from the various skin benefits facials offer, they are extremely relaxing and immediately de-stress you physically and psychologically. Imagine a room with dim lighting, soft music, and a warm, comfy bed. Then add on a face, neck, and shoulder massage. This is the ideal environment in which to relax and unwind completely. Studies show that stress can lead to unhealthy skin, so what better way to eliminate stress and promote healthy skin than a facial? Schedule some “me time” and treat yourself.
6 – You Deserve It!
We spend an exceptional amount of time caring for the other people. While this can be rewarding, at times, it’s just mentally exhausting. Give yourself permission to take a couple of hours to yourself to do something that you’re not required to share with anyone else. A facial is just for you and will give you the time to re-energize and clear your mind.
