Getting professional facials regularly is a great way to take some time off just to relax and be pampered. Along with relaxation, a facial will also improve the appearance of your skin. Facial skin is very delicate and requires regular care to look its best. The natural processes of the body may dull facial skin because it is constantly sloughing off dead cells that may clog pores and make the skin look dull and aged.
There are many different types of facials because there are many different types of skin and skin issues. However, all facials aim to restore a clear, healthy complexion. Most treatments begin with a thorough cleaning to remove dead cells and dirt and unblock pores.
During a consultation, our expert can help you decide what type of facial you need. This could vary according to the weather, time of year and your lifestyle. For example, if you spend a lot of time in the sun, you may require certain treatments. If you have acne, you may require other treatments.
The main benefits of facials are:
• Cleansing involves more that wiping away dirt. It involves deep cleaning with massage and facial packs to remove toxins that are present because of pollution in the air and water. Cleansing involves exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin, and also removes an overproduction of sebum, which is a natural oil that may cause acne and blackheads.
• Facials may restore blood circulation that brings oxygen-rich blood to the skin cells and also hydrates and improves the appearance of dry and wrinkled skin. The blood also contains vitamins and minerals that help to create new skin cells.
• Facials may help slow the aging process. When the skin is exfoliated, the deeper layers that produce collagen and elastin start to produce new skin cells to replace the ones removed. The new cells are plump and fresh-looking, which makes the face look more youthful.
• The emotional benefits cannot be ignored. When your face looks younger, you feel better and have more confidence. Facials with massage will help you relax, but when the facial is complete, the good feelings continue because of your fresh appearance.
