Move over acupuncture and massages, for there's another self-care ritual that's loaded with benefits. Instead of completing face masks from home, treat yourself to a facial by a professional every once in a while. Believe it or not, there's many benefits of getting a facial which you're probably unaware of.
Deep Face Cleansing
The first benefit is better and deeper cleansing from a facial that you can get from home. This will help your skin get rid of oil buildup, bacteria, dirt, and toxins that cause skin issues every day. Professionals can exfoliate and use techniques such as microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, unclog your pores, and allow the absorption of other products. With this your skin will look and feel smoother and softer, as it will make your makeup look better and blend easier!
Anti-Aging & Skin Rejuvenation
Being regular and consistent with your facials is key to keep your skin looking younger (along with eating for a beauty boost as well). The exfoliation, extraction, massage, steam, and mask application that takes place during a facial treatment leads to skin rejuvenation. This essentially improves the appearance of your skin with a fresh, renewed look that's healthy, radiant, and of balanced complexion. Your skin will be left glowing and restored, while also slowing down the aging process and preventing the appearance of fine lines wrinkles. It's never too early to take good care of your skin! The use of anti-aging cream in your facial will immediately increase blood circulation and oxygen flow, which promotes collagen production and enhances the elasticity of your skin.
Improving Skin Conditions
First and foremost, a good aesthetician will analyze your skin during a facial and help your choose the best facial treatment for your skin type. They can help you improve your home skin routine, and most importantly diagnose any skin disorders or suspicious skin problems they find. After being diagnosed with a skin condition, getting a regular facial treatment can then help treat it and heal your skin. Issues that can be treated and minimized with the right facial treatment include: blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, sunspots and sun damage, acne, inflammation and redness, rosacea, dehydration, wrinkles, acne scarring, loss of firmness, and elasticity.
Treating Yourself & Relaxing
Facial massages are great for relaxing, relieving stress, and balancing your mind. Just like your body, your face muscles need and deserve a massage as well. Boosting circulation in your face will stimulate the lymphatic vessels and detoxify your skin, making it look healthier and more youthful. Not to mention, the nice smell of face masks and serums only add to the soothing and relaxing experience. Treating yourself with a day to the spa or beauty salon will boost your mood and even make you feel more beautiful. Having a little time for pampering yourself in a peaceful environment will definitely uplift your spirit and clear your mind, so consider doing this once a month. It's about time you take some time off and treat yourself!
