Benefits of a Facial

A facial is one of the most effective skin care treatments to promote healthy skin. Facials involve cleansing, exfoliation, streaming, and moisturizing.  A facial can be done at a salon by a professional aesthetician or at home by yourself. Both salon facial and at home facial provide several benefits to your skin.

Facials vary depending on your skin type and problem. At a salon, a skin care specialist or esthetician will determine your skin type in order to choose the right ingredients and a type of facial for your skin. At home, you also need to know your skin type in order to choose what facial product your should use and what process you should avoid. More on how to do a facial at home.

Benefits of facialBenefits of Facials 

– Give you a deep cleansing and unclog your pores: When makeup, oil or sebum, dirt, and other impurities are not properly removed from the skin, they can clog your pores and cause skin problems such as blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. Facials give you a deeper cleansing than your regular cleansing so they can remove those impurities that are stuck under the skin surface. Your pores will also appear smaller.

– Improve your skin condition: Knowing your skin type and problem will allow you to do a proper facial. If you have oily skin, you are likely to have clogged and enlarged pores. The skin looks dull due to a buildup of oil. The right facials will help even out your skin tone and neutralize the oily skin.

If you have dry skin, you may experience flaky skin. Facials help get rid of the flaky skin and  then nourish the skin. For acne-prone skin, facials help soften blackheads and whiteheads. Facials also prevent blemishes as they remove dead skin cells that clog the pores.

– Promote a glowing complexion: Facial exfoliation and steaming help increase circulation and stimulates the skin. Circulation facilitates the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin surface and aids in releasing the toxins off the body, leading to glowing skin. Facials also remove dead skin cells that make the skin look dull.

– Prepare the skin to better absorb skin care products: Impurities and excessive oils can cause skin care products to sit on the skin’s surface. Facials get rid of these impurities and oils so skin care products can better penetrate the skin.

– Prevent wrinkles and sagging skin: One of the effective ways to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin is to get a facial massage. Facial massages give the skin a more youthful appearance as they help relax the facial muscles and stimulate blood circulation.

– Relax: Stress can make skin problems such as psoriasis, rosacea, and acne worse. It also dehydrates the skin and weakens skin barrier function. Facials make you feel relaxed and de-stressed. After you apply a facial mask, turn on relaxing music and lie down to wait while your facial mask is working. This helps completely clear your mind.
