If you’ve ever had a facial you know that not only are they incredibly relaxing, but when received often they can take years off of your appearance. Not many people understand how beneficial a good professional facial can be. Generally, facials are booked when someone starts to notice skin issues like dry skin, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne. What most people don’t realize is that many of those skin issues could have easily been prevented by receiving frequent facials. Here are some reasons you should book a facial:
- A good facial massage increases circulation and promotes collagen production to prevent premature aging.
- Facials cleanse pores on a deeper level. With proper exfoliation your skin is smoother, you unclog pores, and you allow for better penetration of products. Also, estheticians perform extractions correctly which aids in stopping acne formation and keeping skin clear. Do not attempt to extract on your own because you risk damaging skin which could result in scarring and infection.
- Facials brighten skin and reduce the appearance of age spots. Age spots and dullness significantly age our complexion. Treatments like Vitamin C and Glycolic help to brighten and lighten which gives you that “glow”.
- Best of all, facials help you to relax! They feel great and help you to unwind and reduce stress. A quality facial will include a nice face, neck, and shoulder massage. So not only do you get the skin benefits of a facial, you also get the healing benefits of massage.
Ultimately, facials slow the aging process. I like to think that having a monthly facial membership is similar to having a gym membership. We use our gym membership to take care of our bodies and look better so consider caring for your skin the same way!
Monthly facials and proper skin care are essential to a youthful appearance. Investing in your health is important so don’t forget that includes your skin too!
