Many people think of a facial as some sort of luxury. But we all know we’re not getting any younger and signs of age will begin appearing around our eyes, mouth and neckline before we even realize it. Wouldn’t it be great if we could delay this for as long as possible? You can actually turn back the clock and have smoother, softer, more evenly toned skin, with fewer lines with regular facials. Here are ten amazing benefits of having a monthly facial.
The outermost layer of your skin fully renews itself every 28 days. By having a facial you give your skin can replicate new healthy cells, creating a much healthier and better looking complexion. By speeding up the skin renewal process with a monthly facial, your skin-care products will work more quickly and effectively to maintain healthier, younger looking skin.
A good facial will result in thoroughly cleansed pores by extracting the built up oil. Extraction is a very delicate procedure that should be done regularly, carefully and hygienically to avoid scarring or additional breakouts. Steam is used to open the pores and using her fingers or a special tool, the aesthetician will unclog them. This is all done under a bright light with a magnifying glass. With regular extractions you can maintain clear skin, stop the formation of acne and reduce pore size.
A facial provides a much deeper exfoliation than you can do at home. Smooth exfoliated skin allows your skin-care products to penetrate more deeply, making them more beneficial. You will also have more evenly toned skin, better able to retain hydration and a youthful glow.
If you have acne or chicken pox scars they will disappear within two years of regular microdermabrasion treatments. There are two types of microdermabrasion, the more gentle process is done with a diamond-tip device to slough or scrub away the outer layers of skin. Crystal microdermabrasion is a little more aggressive, using a delicate spray of crystals to exfoliate the skin.
Lightens Dark Spots
Regular facials can lighten dark spots and even out varying skin tones. Dark spots typically come with age and by diminishing these, we look visibly younger. We should still use sunscreen several times a day no matter what time of year!
The purpose of a mask is to calm, decongest or hydrate the skin, all vital to maintain a youthful glow. Ideally you should apply a mask at home once a week, but at minimum, during a regular monthly facial.
A thorough facial will include a massage of the face, neck, décolletage and scalp. This allows us to fall into a state of relaxation while promoting lymphatic drainage by flushing out unhealthy toxins and fluids. This should be done monthly to maintain healthy circulation.
Life is way too busy for many of us these days. By spending an hour away from the hustle of the day, in a relaxing, peaceful environment, we can rejuvenate and restore some balance to our minds.
Expert Skincare Advice
By having monthly facials, your aesthetician can regularly assess your skin for problems. The products you may be using could be causing an allergic reaction or irritation. Any changes in moles or scales, can be brought to your attention so you can see a dermatologist.
Regular monthly facials will slow the aging process. Your skin will be healthier, more resilient, smoother, and more radiant. Age spots and fine lines diminish with cell turnover and collagen production increased. The aging process is reversed with regular exfoliation and the effective penetration of vital skin nutrients. We can look younger with radiant, firm, well-nourished and hydrated skin.
