Many people think of facials as an indulgence or a treat for special occasions. If this is the case, then it’s time to rethink facials.
8 reasons to get a facial.
- Facials should be done regularly.
Great skin requires looking after it. Being proactive will slow down the signs of aging and keep it clear and healthy. “It’s like going to the gym,” says Tina Griffin, Director of Blitz Facial Bars. “You’ll see the best results if you visit regularly.”
- Expert skin analysis.
A professional skin analysis can give you valuable insight into the health of your skin. “Your esthetician can put you on a great regimen to help you achieve the results you’re looking for,” says Tina. Think of it as your own personal skin concierge who will check and update your skin care regime.
- Extractions should be done by a professional
We’re all guilty of picking our faces in front of a mirror but the only person who should be doing extractions is an esthetician. Regular, professional extractions can help keep your skin clear and prevent long-term damage you might be causing at home.
- Professional strength exfoliation
Most facials include a form of exfoliation using enzyme or fruit acid peels. The products estheticians use on your face are professional strength and more effective than your at-home products and are customized for your skin.
- Problem Solving
Most facials are geared toward problem solving. “Whether it’s dry skin, brown spots, rosacea, irritation or inflamed acne, a good facial is always customized to focus on what your skin needs,” says Tina. By using the right combination of ingredients, your esthetician can create change in the skin and improve its appearance over time
- Facial massage
The massage you receive in your facial is not only relaxing it also stimulates the lymphatic system. Fatigue and stress can overload the lymph system resulting in dull, tired skin. Lymphatic massage flushes out toxins, promotes circulation and increases oxygen to the cells, resulting in glowing, more youthful looking skin.
- Our changing skin. Your skin changes over time depending on age, weather, hormones and many other factors. Knowledgeable estheticians can address these changes, identify skin conditions, and educate you on how to treat them.
- Best face forward
Our faces are what we put forward to the world and it can sometimes dictate how we feel about ourselves. Healthy skin is beautiful skin and it can make us feel confident and good about ourselves.
