Why You Need Regular Facials
Unfortunately, getting a facial is commonly seen as something you do only when you want to treat yourself or every once in a while. The truth is that regular facials are important for not only your skin but also your physical and mental well-being.
A staggering amount of pollution, dirt, grime, and dead skin accumulates on the face. This build up is an unavoidable fact of life. We can do the best we can to keep the skin clean, but it is not always enough. Many advocates compare getting a facial to going to the dentist. We brush our teeth, floss when we remember, and still acknowledge the importance of going to the dentist for a regular deep clean. Keeping up with dentist appointments saves us a lot of money down the road. Like our teeth, the skin needs to be evaluated and cleansed by a trained professional every so often to maintain a healthy complexion. Getting facials on a regular basis, will save you from needless spending in the future.
What is a facial?
A facial is more than just a few cucumbers on your eyes and some moisturizing cream on your face. One of the most important steps of a facial is exfoliation. Having your skin exfoliated by a professional helps remove dead skin which helps jump start cell turnover, encouraging the growth of new, healthy cells. Regular exfoliation by a professional will work wonders on those looking to diminish the appearance of acne scars. A good facial will include a mask that deeply cleans pores you can’t see with the naked eye. A facial will also include moisturizers, toners and a facial massage that will leave your skin looking younger and healthier improved self-esteem.
Benefits of having a facial.
Your face is the one area of your body that is almost always exposed to the outside elements including wind, sun, and cold. To keep your face looking young and jubilant, you need to take care of your face. Also, a regular facial has the obvious outward benefits of youth and vitality with psychological effects of improved self-esteem.
Other Benefits of Facials…
Refreshed and Relaxed Skin: With each facial, a facial massage is often incorporated. The massage alone works wonders on tired, wrinkled skin. A beauty therapist is trained on how to appropriately massage the face. Believe or not, certain areas of the face need to be massaged in different ways. If done incorrectly, a massage can do more harm than good, and lead to sagging skin. The massage also encourages lymphatic drainage as it flushes out toxins while promoting circulation.
Noticeable and Instant Results: The best part about getting a facial is that the results are instant. Rarely do you come across a skin treatment or product that lives up to your high expectations. After just one facial, you will see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin.
Anti-aging effects: Regular facials can help your anti-aging products work better. The reason for this is that regular facials help to relax the muscles and tone your face. This helps the anti-aging products you use to absorb into the skin better than they would without regular facials.
How often should I get a facial?
Facials are beneficial at least once every thirty days. Once a month will keep your skin looking its best. Then, when you are at home, or in between facials it is very important to take care of your skin by washing your face and moisturizing it daily. You also need to remember to use sun protection.
