Facials Help Maintain, Regenerate Skin Health
Facials provide an opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who will analyze your skin, hear your concerns and show you how to properly care for your skin based on your personal needs and skin condition. A facial can help promote the overall health of your skin, which includes:
- Stimulating blood flow
- Softening skin
- Removing dead skin
- Encouraging new skin growth
- Restoring skin complexion
- Treating acne
- Relieving stress
- Hydrating chronic dry skin
- Cleansing and detoxification
Choosing the type of facial that you need is the first step. Some facial treatments offer a deep cleanse of the skin, while others provide moisture to skin cells. Some facials can specifically treat acne.
The Key Benefits Of Facials
Cleansing: Facials will deep cleanse your skin. Removing toxins from pollution and our diet is essential for healthy skin. Facials can reduce an overabundance of sebum, which is a natural substance that moisturizes and lubricates our skin. Overproduction of sebum can cause skin problems, including blackheads and acne. Cleansing facials open the pores of the skin, remove dead skin and toxins from the face, and clean the surface of the skin through exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin. Steam treatments raise the temperature of the skin and soften the hardened oil in the pore, making it easier for extraction and deep pore cleansing.
Exfoliation: Exfoliation stimulates regeneration of skin cells, while removing dead, dry skin. Exfoliation also can break down stubborn marks on the skin. Exfoliation also allows the active ingredients in skin care products to absorb deeper within the skin for maximum benefit.
Increased Circulation: A facial massage helps increase microcirculation to bring new nutrients to skin cells. This gives your skin a healthy glow and pumps skin cells full of with vital nutrients and water, which reduces the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin. Nutrition, circulation and hydration are essential for youthful, healthy skin. A facial can help smooth fine lines, while promoting collagen production, which is essential to anti-aging and healthy skin.
Along with all of the skin benefits stated above, facials are incredibly relaxing and stress reducing and should be performed every 4-6 weeks. Facial treatments can help slow the aging process of our skin, while contributing to our overall health. Facials are not the silver-bullet solution, however. While highly beneficial, facials can’t overcome a the negative impacts of poor diet and a lack of exercise. Healthy skin is just part of your overall health.
