Here Are Few Reasons to Get a Facial
What are the benefits of getting a professional facial from an esthetician? If you’re seeking healthier, clearer and more beautiful skin, a facial can make a dramatic difference. Here are few reasons why.
1. Expert Skin Analysis
Wherever you buy your skin care products (department/beauty stores, medical spas, online, beauty boutiques, pharmacies, etc.), often times, the salespeople see your face with makeup on. A benefit of getting your skin analyzed during a professional facial is that the esthetician will see you without makeup. This reveals your true skin type, allowing the esthetician to cater to your unique needs with professional treatments and product suggestions for your home care routine. In addition to his or her ability to identify and treat your needs, your esthetician also works with your skin for over an hour. This further ensures that he or she can properly analyze your skin type. This is exposure to which a beauty store consultant is likely not privy.
2. Professional Strength Exfoliation
Most facials include a form of exfoliation using ultrasound, bio brasion (a more effective form of microdermabrasion), enzymes, or acids. Some of these exfoliating ingredients can be found in your skin care products, but during a facial, you will receive them at a professional strength. Whichever exfoliation your facialist uses should be specifically catered towards your skin type. This will leave you with results that smooth the skin, increase cellular turnover, soften lines, and break up skin discoloration to promote more even-toned skin.
3. Clean Out Blackheads and Clogged Pores
With proper preparation and skin softening techniques, your esthetician will use a skilled method to gently extract clogged pores, blackheads, and impurities without causing harm to your skin. People usually have a difficult time eliminating blackheads at home because home care products typically only reduce clogged pores. It takes a professional esthetician to properly prepare and soften the skin before manual extractions can take place safely and most effectively. Of course, there’s always the DIY way to remove blackheads if you really must.)
4. Intensive Hydration
Every skin type needs hydration. It does not matter if you have oily, acne-prone skin, or dry and flaky skin. Your skin cells are like fish and need water to survive. Thus, in order to maintain healthy skin, it is imperative to keep it topically hydrated. With oilier skin types, the face tends to produce more oil when moisture is lacking which is the opposite of your intention and need. Oily skin needs moisture, too, but the moisture it’s seeking is water, not oil. Hydrated skin is healthy skin and a facial will help to regulate your skin’s proper moisture level. For home use, serums using hyaluronic acid like Skin Drink Concentrate are most beneficial for hydration.
5. Increase Circulation to Encourage a Glow
There is no doubt that the skin’s health is impaired when blood circulation slows. Aging leads to slowed circulation, which inevitably results in dull, tired looking skin. One important benefit of a facial is the massage. Along with warm steam, both processes help to increase blood flow bringing new nutrients to the skin. This encourages a youthful radiance and brings a glow to the skin’s surface.
Aside from the various skin benefits facials offer, they are also extremely relaxing and immediately de-stress you both physically and psychologically. Imagine a room with dim lighting, soft music, and a warm, comfy bed.Then add on a face, neck, and shoulder massage. This is the ideal environment in which to completely relax and unwind. Studies show that stress can lead to unhealthy skin, so what’s a better way to eliminate stress and promote healthy skin.
