Ladies, we can’t deny the fact that we care a lot about our appearance. Between fashion, beauty, fitness…. the list goes on. The one thing we tend to miss is getting regular facials. We understand that getting a facial can be expensive, but it is worth the money when considering the long-term effects. Think about it, most of us tend to smother our face with makeup for work or the occasional night out. While we think our faces are being cleaned thoroughly from a shower or by using facial wipes and cleansers, the truth is that there’s much more dirt, oil and makeup trapped deep inside pores that we physically can’t see. Facials help to thoroughly cleanse deep into your skin, effectively removing this build-up that can cause breakouts and irritation. Here are ten reasons why you should get regular facials.
SQUEAKY CLEAN PORES
Who doesn’t love to extract their pores, blackheads, and pimples? It’s even become a sensation to watch people extract all kinds of grotesque things with social media accounts like Dr. Pimple Popper, Sandra Lee who is a certified dermatologist with over two million followers on her Instagram. Unfortunately, poorly extracting your skin can lead to long term detrimental effects like facial scarring and acne flare ups, making it essential to get regular facials. While we know it may feel satisfying to pop your own pimples, it’s best to see a certified professional because extraction in itself is a very delicate process. By cleaning out your pores and getting regular facials, your skin can breathe better, look healthier and suffer less from unwanted breakouts.
Having a healthy complexion is key when it comes to overall skin glow, and regular facials can help you achieve this through mask treatments. Usually during a facial, your skin will be steamed to open the pores for extraction. Then a mask will be applied. Depending on your skin type and needs, getting a mask that compliments your skin can help hydrate your skin, remove excess oil and improve the overall balance of your pores. While it’s always recommended to see a professional, masking is something you can do in your own home also. Whether it is store bought or homemade, you can incorporate masking in your daily routine to help rejuvenate your skin.
Regular facials can help with lymphatic drainage and promote overall detoxing for healthier skin. And while there are many lymphatic drainage movements to cleanse your system, it is best to seek a professional that can offer this medical procedure. Having stubborn lymph nodes can cause swelling, water retention and discomfort. Nobody wants to deal with that! Getting regular facials is important because they will help get rid of unnecessary toxins and promotes circulation.
INCREASED BLOOD CIRCULATION
There are many ways you can increase your blood circulation. This can be accomplished through exercise. By increasing your heart rate through aerobic exercises, your blood will begin to circulate more efficiently! If you prefer a more relaxing route, getting a facial can also increase your blood circulation and help promote overall well-being. When you get a facial, your face is massaged, which helps promote blood and lymph circulation. By doing this, it enhances the oxygen levels and nutrients delivered to the cells, thus promoting healthier skin. While exercising daily is an important lifestyle habit for healthy skin, getting facials is an alternative when trying to achieve the same effects, but in a more relaxing manner.
While makeup wipes and pharmacy-bought cleansers like Neutrogena can get the job done to an extent, they mostly only clean off the surface. Whereas deep cleansing facials dig much little deeper to really clear out clogged pores. This thoroughly removes the dirt and the oil build-up without overly drying the skin and helps to rejuvenate pores by letting them breathe.
ALLEVIATE STRESS LEVELS
Isn’t it everyone’s dream to be stressed free? Being overly stressed can lead you to turn to skin havoc-wreaking culprits, such as chocolate and sugar. Instead of indulging in that chocolate bar or that pint of ice cream, which is not healthy for your skin or your waistline, opt for a more relaxing option. Getting a good facial promotes beauty benefits that can help you relieve stress and feel refreshed again.
Who doesn’t like to look a little younger? While some may change their style or haircut, many women are taking it to an extreme level by getting plastic surgery to regain their youthful appearance. However, there’s no denying the fact that we are getting older each day, but when it comes to anti-aging techniques, going under the knife isn’t the only option. Regular facials can help slow down the skin-aging process and provide you with more youthful, vibrant skin. By getting regular facials, you can maintain a healthy skin balance and promote cell turn-over that is essential for boosting collagen levels and keeping skin from thinning and drying out.
LEAVE IT TO THE PROFESSIONALS
You make think you know what’s best for your skin, but it never hurts to seek professional help. Aestheticians and dermatologists specialize in skin care. They will be able to assess your skin on a professional level and suggest what would work best for you and your skin type. Whether you’re suffering from conditions like eczema or excessively oily skin, these professionals will be the ones to get to the core matter.
HIGH TECH TREATMENTS
While there are many ways to promote healthy skin, there are some treatments that can only be performed by a certified professional at a spa. One of the booming treatments right now is the LED Light Therapy. It is a non-surgical procedure that soothes and rejuvenates the skin by treating acne breakouts, wrinkles, and scarring. It is also known to reduce redness and inflammation. The different colored lights is used to tackle different skin issues and it can kill bacteria that is deep within our pores.
Let’s be honest… when you look good you feel good! Having a natural glow to your face can brighten anyone’s day. It’s truly one of the best feelings in the world when you feel good about yourself and the way you look. A true confidence booster!
It’s never too early to start caring for your skin. Invest in a healthy skin care routine and incorporate regular facials into your monthly schedule. Your skin will thank you!
