The Amazing Benefits of a Facial

If you think that facials are nothing but a frivolous way to pamper your skin, you are wrong. If you think that facials are nothing but a day wasted in the salon, think again. Facials done at a professional spa are the best way to find out if your skin needs anything or how it is reacting to hormonal changes, pollution, stress, makeup, and other elements. Everyone has their own routine they follow at home, but a licensed esthetician can help you truly understand your skin and give advice to correct it. Not to mention, that amazing facial massage not only makes your skin glow but also destresses you and leaves you rejuvenated. Facial massages have actually been found to activate your sympathetic nervous system. This reduces your anxiety levels and uplifts your mood. Don’t miss out on something that’s good for you and your skin.

Prevents aging

Are you noticing fine lines and wrinkles appearing around your eyes, nose and mouth? Anti-aging facials that include glycolic acid treatments, collagen-infused serums, and hyaluronic acid can restore the skin’s firmness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Getting these facials regularly can help to keep your skin looking fresh, supple, smooth and young.

If your anti-aging facial includes light therapy treatments, you may be able to say goodbye to age spots and broken capillaries for good. Light therapy treatments can help to restore your skin at a deeper level, and will help to rejuvenate and strengthen your skin from inside out. You will need to undergo a series of these treatments to see results. Plan to get a facial at least once per month for optimal benefits.

Helps with problem skin

When a professional facial for acne is combined with the proper at-home skin care routine it works together to treat and prevent acne. This is especially crucial if you have an acne prone skin type or stubborn acne. If you want faster, more permanent results make sure you’re tackling your acne with both at-home care and professional care.

When you squeeze a pimple yourself (extraction), you run the risk of scarring. Acne marks can be stubborn, but facials can help you in treating them. Estheticians often use products containing salicylic acid to treat acne. A study shows that salicylic acid peels help reduce acne and the resulting scars.

Extraction done by a professional is a crucial part of the facial. A skilled person uses the extraction tool to extract all the whiteheads and blackheads without hurting your skin. This is not possible at home. Blackheads and whiteheads clog the pores and make your skin dull. So, if your skin looks a bit bumpy, it’s time to go for a facial.

Eliminates dark circles under the eyes

The most common reason for dark circles under the eye area is because the skin is thinner. When the skin thins out, the blood vessels underneath become more visible, and that blood beneath the skin is what creates the appearance of dark circles. This can happen because of genetics, aging, or long-term overuse of prescription retinoids. Additionally, not getting enough sleep can lead to dark circles because your body’s circulatory system is compromised, and you get stagnant blood in the vessels under the eyes because they haven’t properly drained.

Estheticians know how to treat the delicate area under eye. The eye creams used by them are specially prepared to treat the sensitive skin around your eyes and have anti-aging benefits. Many use cucumber slices during treatment for soothing your eyes. Cucumber contains vitamin K that can help rehydrate tired skin and eliminates dark circles and wrinkles.

Helps eliminate age spots

Age spots are a result of the body producing excess melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin its color. When the skin is exposed to sunlight, the body produces extra melanin to protect the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, and the melanin in the skin becomes clumped together. Exfoliation can help to even out skin tone by removing dead skin cells. A regular exfoliation routine can create a more homogeneous complexion, as it keeps your complexion fresh and smooth by allowing all the potent ingredients packed in your skincare to penetrate into the skin. A facial evens out those dark spots, giving you a brighter, fresher, skin tone.

The beauty of a professional facial

By getting a proper analysis of your skin by a licensed esthetician, you will learn your skin type so as to properly address your skin’s needs. Most people are using the wrong products for their skin type and that can cause the skin to age prematurely and not look it’s best. Estheticians also have available to them a wide variety of skin-care products that are professional-only products and they know how to use these products properly.
