Your skin is your largest organ, and the skin on your face is the first thing people see when they meet you. So, it makes sense to take care of it.
You probably wash your face regularly? Maybe you also add moisturizer and sunscreen to your regimen? These are all good habits and will make a difference in your skin’s health over time. But there are so many benefits that come with adding professional facials to your skincare routine as well. This extra effort definitely pays off in a number of ways.
If you think facials are nothing but a frivolous way to pamper your skin, think again. Even if you do not have blemishes, hyperpigmentation, severe acne, fine lines, oily skin, dry skin, excess hair growth or any other problems, your face needs to be pampered by a trained professional to keep it healthy and free of skin issues.
There are many benefits to facials. Some benefits include reduced stress, cleaning out clogged pores, exfoliating and more. According to a study published in the journal Biomedical Research, facial massage activates your sympathetic nervous system, reducing anxiety levels and uplifting moods. Other benefits of facials include increased blood circulation in the face, decrease the signs of aging and deep cleaning of the skin. Professional facials help rejuvenate the skin, detox the skin, help treat acne and acne scarring, exfoliate and tighten skin, decrease sunspots and increase the skin’s ability to absorb other products effectively.
Facials are not just for women. A lot of men realize the benefits of getting a facial. Men now make up 47% of spa-goers, a significant increase from a decade ago. And it’s no wonder! Men’s skin is coarser, their pores are larger and their risk of sun damage is increased. Men’s facials are formulated to the unique needs of men’s skin. They deal with razor burn and ingrown hair, dullness and sensitivity. Some target skin that’s been damaged by sun and wind, and some target acne or aging.
Facials can also be as important to teens as they are adults. A teen’s skin is more prone to clogged pores, acne and hormonal outbreaks. Other important benefits include learning healthy skin habits. A professional can educate the teen with safe and effective methods, rather than what they learn from social media or their peers. These skills can help your teen properly care for their skin for a lifetime.
Not all facials are created equally. Who you see is also very important. Medical spas are able to use higher concentrated products than day spas due to having a Medical Director on site. Also, medical spas are able to provide medical-grade treatment options. Facials should be individualized for the client’s skin and most professionals agree they should be done monthly. Most comprehensive facials last 60 minutes or more to address all your skin care needs.
