Everything You Need to Know About Facials

What Is a Facial?


A facial is a professional way to take 360-degree care of your skin. It is actually a multi-step skin treatment, which is recommended as one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin. It promotes a clear, well-hydrated complexion, helping your skin look younger. You also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin. In fact, you will get the best results in doing facials when you do them as part of an on-going program of skin care.



Why Facials?


If you think facials are merely an hour of lenient pampering, think again! They have enormous benefits to the health and wellness of your skin, both in the short- and long-term. Most of you make regular visits to your dentist, or gym, but you should realize that your skin needs to be taken care of in the same manner. As a matter of fact, nothing can match the feeling you get when you glide your fingers over your face and feel that soft and milky skin.


How Often to Get a Facial?

It varies from person to person as a facial depends on several factors such as the condition and type of your skin, skin care goals, and of course, your budget. Ideally, you can get a facial monthly, because that's how long it takes the skin to regenerate. You need to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes.


Main Benefits of Facials


There are numerous studies that confirm facial massage activates your sympathetic nervous system and reduces your anxiety levels and ultimately uplifts your mood. There are hundreds of pressure points on your face that are connected to various systems in your body. When the esthetician massages these pressure points, your body responds to it. A professional facial massage keeps your skin glowing, while affecting the functioning of the other organs. And it is highly recommended to visit a professional to get a facial massage, since it is not possible for you to know all the pressure points.


2. Cleansing

The first step in an excellent facial is cleansing the face thoroughly. The facialist understands your skin type and knows what needs to be done to keep it in good shape.


3. Promoting Blood Circulation

Everybody knows that massage improves the blood circulation in our body. The same applies to the face. Improved blood circulation in the face means your cells get more oxygen and nutrients carried along with the blood. So, the result will be healthier and efficient cells and a glowing face.


4. Treating Acne And Acne Marks

Usually, acne marks are stubborn, but don't be afraid, because during facials, estheticians use products that help you in treating them.


5. Exfoliating the Skin

Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. The cells die and tend to pile up on the surface, which make your skin rough and dry. Going for a facial is the best way to remove the dead skin cells properly.


6. Preventing Aging

As you get older, the production of collagen diminishes and consequently, your skin loses its elasticity. During facial treatments, our professional estheticians use chemical peels, face packs, masks, lotions, and creams that are enriched with botanical extracts which stimulate the production of collagen and reduce the signs of aging.

Receiving regular facials and face massages will boost cell regeneration and promote collagen development, which give you younger looking skin.
