Facials allow you to relax. They also feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products can heal. Think of a facial as “relaxing with benefits”.
Facials increase circulation of the blood under the skin allowing the skin optimal health to facilitate the renewal skin cells.
Facials decrease waste underneath the skin that can cause puffiness, ruddiness, and fluid accumulation by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies just under the skin. Facials also aids in detoxification.
A good facial (with facial massage) can help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production, which is the building block of the skin (to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, and sagging).
A facial will cleanse the pores on a much deeper level. Similar to a good dental cleaning, this is what a facial can do for the skin/pores. Even non-acneic skin can use a good deep cleanse. Extractions/cleaning out the pores can help to maintain clear skin, stop acne formation, as well as can help to change the pore’s size. Often if left unchecked, pores can start to stretch and widen with the accumulation of oil and debris.
Facials provide a deep(er) exfoliation than you can achieve at home. Exfoliation smoothes skin, which allows for great penetration of products (i.e. moisturizers or serums), unclogs pores, improves skin ability to retain hydration, and evens skin tone.
Facials can help even skin tone and lighten dark spots. Dark spots age our skins’ appearance visibly.
Facials can also slow the aging process. It allows your skin to feel healthier, smoother, and look more radiant. Facials reduce fine lines, age spots, and relieve dehydrated skin. With these benefits, facials make us feel better about our skin. When used with the use of exfoliation, massage, and the penetration of nutrients and antioxidants, facials also fight to reverse aging.
Facials are not a miracle cure but they do give you a fresh start to a healthier and balanced complexion. Regular facials will help you maintain optimal skin health.
