An effective daily skin care routine is essential for maintaining fresh, young and healthy looking skin, but getting professional treatment by someone who understands your unique skin type should be something you implement regularly throughout the course of the year.
A facial is a multi-purpose skin treatment including face masks, exfoliation, cleansing, steam, a face massage and a combination of organic creams and lotions. Your esthetician will examine your skin and help determine the best method of treatment, as well as the best products to use.
Benefits of a facial include:
Professional strength exfoliation to smooth the skin, lighten discoloration from sun and manage breakouts.
Manual extraction of blackheads and clogged pores to create smoother and clearer skin.
Intensive hydration to repair the skin’s moisture barrier to keep skin looking plump and moist.
Expert skin analysis from someone who truly understands your unique skin type and how to best care for it.
Facial massage to increase circulation to encourage brighter, glowing skin.
Help for maintaining youthful and healthy-looking skin. (If you want to have younger-looking skin, there are many additional treatments that can be added on to a facial to encourage this.)
Professional guidance for your home care routine. (This includes seasonal, environmental, and age-related changes with the skin.)
Time for you and only you.
A facial will help your skin get rid of oil buildup, toxins and dirt from your everyday environment, and thoroughly remove bacteria that leads to skin issues. A good exfoliation like microdermabrasion will remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and unclog your pores, allowing the absorption of other products. This will also make your skin look and feel softer and smoother, making your makeup blend easier and look better.
But How Often Do I Really NEED A Facial?
It takes 30 days for skin cells to move through a full life cycle of cell growth and make their way from the dermis to the surface of the skin where they naturally flake off. Giving it a boost every 4-6 weeks is exactly what the skin needs to look its best.
A professional facial stimulates that exfoliation process, keeping the skin more toned and youthful-looking, while also understanding what products and techniques are best for your individual skin type.
