The Facts Behind Facials
While you can have healthy skin without regular facials, a facial can provide a deep cleanse – as well as other benefits – you won’t find at your bathroom sink. Here’s what happens with your skin while the rest of you enjoys some deep relaxation.
Facials usually begin with a custom consultation by a trained esthetician who looks at your skin to decide what products and processes will be the most beneficial. Then the esthetician cleanses the skin, exfoliates, performs a facial massage, steams, and moisturizes. The products and processes used will brighten and tighten your skin, help with breakouts, and give you that fresh post-facial glow, but that’s not all they do.
Health Benefits, Step by Step
- Exfoliation brings your skin from looking dull and aged with dead skin cells to looking brighter and healthier by stripping the top skin layer. This also helps unblock pores and prevent breakouts.
- Facial massages actually serve to help your immune system and reduce fluid buildup in your body by draining your lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage via massage not only releases toxins, but also increases blood circulation and reduces puffiness.
- The steam and hot towels hydrate the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles while opening up the pores.
- Ending the facial with a toner and moisturizer, chosen to compliment your skin type, restores your skin’s balance of moisture, oil, and ph which can get thrown off by home skincare regimens.
