Faces Tell The Truth: The Benefits of Facials
Women are givers by nature. We give to our children, our spouse, our community, our kids’ school, their sports teams, our church. Far too often, we tend to be the last in line of receiving energy and being gifted rest, relaxation, rejuvenation. One of the first places that shows up? In our faces. Our faces tell the truth of where we are at in our own well being. It’s a reflection of what’s going on inside of our body as well. Finding a healthy balance can be a challenge with today’s pressures. Beginning with a relaxing yet rejuvenating facial can start you on that journey of caring for yourself inside and out.
You Can’t Give What You Don’t Have: Self-Care is All-Important
The global beauty and spa industry continue to grow exponentially each year. Having come through the pandemic, women especially are realizing that it’s time to take some time for themselves. You can’t give what you have don’t have. So as givers, giving to yourself first is a vital aspect of feeding our very nature so that we can continue to thrive alongside our family.
There’s a reason people turn to self-care and pampering: a stressful job, fast-paced lifestyle, and unhealthy diet all contribute to craving more self-care activities.
Facials and skin treatments are one of the ways to treat yourself, feel less stressed, and give your skin a healthy glow. Facials can solve skin problems, reverse the aging process, and restore your skin’s natural elasticity.
Keep reading to learn about 7 amazing benefits of facials that’ll make your skin smoother, clearer, and more radiant than ever.
Facials Are So Good For You!
1. Remove Dead Skin Cells
One of the most important facial benefits of skin treatments is cleansing the skin and removing dead skin cells. Our skin regenerates every 27 days or so, and as new skin cells take over, the dead ones stay on the top layer.
This is why exfoliation and peeling treatments are so helpful. They help remove these dead cells to give way to healthy, radiant skin. In beauty salons and spas, you’ll receive high-quality professional exfoliating treatments that’ll give your skin a boost of energy and glow.
We have a special Dermaplaning facial whose main purpose is removing dead skin cells and “peach fuzz”. An aesthetician will use a small, gentle sterile blade to remove the dead skin cells, and once your face is smooth and clean, you’ll receive a regular facial to moisturize it.
2. Cleanse and Rejuvenate with a Facial
As we age, the skin naturally loses its elasticity, flexibility, and ability to produce collagen. Facial treatments can help restore this balance and hydrate the skin on the inside.
At the same time, the ingredients of facials penetrate deep into the skin pores to remove toxins, oil, dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria. Store-bought cosmetic products and cleansers aren’t as effective, so we recommend regular facials for clear, youthful skin.
We recommend our Hydro-Facial Deluxe for this purpose. This is an aqua-dermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection. Your skin will be clearer, more radiant, moisturized, and smoother right after the first treatment.
3. Slow Down the Aging Process with a Facial
No matter your age, it’s never too early to establish an anti-aging skin care routine. With aging, the skin slowly loses its ability to produce collagen, but eating healthy food, hydration, and quality facial treatments can slow down the aging process.
For example, microdermabrasion and microneedling are two of the most effective anti-aging facial treatments. They help the skin produce more collagen on a cellular level, and may even help heal scar tissue. This will help the skin restore its glow and elasticity, and create new healthy cells.
Our best facial for reversing the aging process is our Rejuvenation Facial. We created it specifically with mature skin in mind to help decrease signs of aging. We clean, brighten, hydrate, and moisturize the skin and make it luminescent and feeling youthful.
4. Establish a Skincare Routine
Each skin type is different and requires specialized care and treatment. What works for oily or combination skin will not work for dry skin, so choosing the right facial is crucial. Ideally, you should get facials at least four times a year, but we recommend once a month for visible results.
If you don’t have a good skin care routine yet or want professional advice, our estheticians will recommend the best routine for your type. They’ll examine your skin closely, and based on their observations, they’ll give you tips on how to cleanse and hydrate your face at home. You’ll also learn how to choose the best sunscreen, read the labels on products, and give your skin a makeover that’ll last until the next facial.
5. Set Aside ‘Me-Time’ with a Facial
Leading a dynamic lifestyle, chronic stress, and air pollution can take a toll on the skin. These issues will reflect on the skin as dullness, wrinkles, acne, and dehydration. It’s important to find time for yourself and tend to your needs, both internally and externally.
An hour at the spa for a facial will help your mind and body relax. Setting aside ‘me time’ isn’t selfish and isn’t a luxury. It’s necessary if you want to lead a balanced, happy, stress-free life.
Our recommended facial for de-stressing and decompressing is our Luminating Facial. Its exfoliating active ingredients, enzyme peels, and acid treatments make it the perfect facial for dull and tired skin.
6. Improve Circulation using a Facial
Just like a body massage improves circulation in the muscles and joints, a facial can improve circulation in your skin. If you have poor circulation in the body, your face will be the first to show the symptoms. Your skin will look pale, dull, and lifeless because it’s not getting enough oxygen.
A facial will revive the skin and help cells be more efficient in carrying important nutrients to your face. The oxygen boost will make the skin more elastic, radiant, and healthy, giving you a youthful look.
7. Resolve Skin Issues by starting with a Facial
If you have ongoing skin issues, the right facial can help reduce or eliminate these symptoms. Whether you’re struggling with oily skin, acne, dry skin, irritation, age spots, sun damage, or scarring, there’s a facial for everything.
Regular treatment will help soothe inflammation and regenerate the skin from the inside out. You’ll also get professional skincare tips for your skin type and recommendations on the best skin products for you.
Our top facial for acne-prone skin is the Decongesting Facial. This is especially suitable for treating hormonal acne in both teens and adults. It helps clear acne, excess oil, and blackheads with the help of extractions, gentle cleansers, and acid peels. Your skin will feel clean, fresh, and rejuvenated.
