8 Amazing Benefits of Facials
Nothing beats the feeling of a soft, clean, and fresh face. A daily skincare routine is important for maintenance, but every once in a while your skin needs a deep, nourishing clean that can only be achieved by professionals. If you’re looking for a reason to get facials more regularly, this is it! Far from being a frivolous, superficial skin treatment, facials cleanse deep within your pores and provide nourishment and moisture. Facials clear out toxins and pollutants, treat blemishes and pigmentation, and in general keep your skin healthy and free of impurities. The professional aesthetician can also give you personalized skincare tips and products and help you understand your own skincare needs. So we know that facials clean out your pores, but did you know about all these other great benefits?
- Reduce Stress
According to a study published in the journal Biomedical Research, facial massage activates your sympathetic nervous system, which reduces your anxiety levels and uplifts your mood. There are hundreds of pressure points on your face that connect to various systems in your body. A good facial massage not only keeps your skin radiant, but it also benefits the functioning of other organs.
- Prevent Aging
Proper skincare is the most important way to slow down the signs of aging. Regular facials and facial massages boost collagen production and promotes cell regeneration, giving you tighter, fuller, brighter looking skin.
- Promotes Blood Circulation
Facials improve blood circulation within the face, which means cells are receiving oxygen and nutrients that are carried in the blood. This leads to healthier and more efficient skin cells and facial tissue.
- Detoxify the Skin
Oils, pollutants, toxins, and waste accumulate on your skin on a regular basis, which if left untreated leads to breakouts. Washing and cleansing your face can only do so much— you need to detoxify your skin. Facials use ingredients such as anti-oxidant rich creams, sea salt, herbal extracts, and oils to make your face fresh and glowing.
- Treat acne scars, and pigmentation
Sometimes it’s hard to resist popping a pimple, but the resulting acne scars can be a stubborn issue to deal with. Sun spots also increase pigmentation in the face and can dull your complexion. Aestheticians commonly use salicylic acid during facials to treat acne and reduce the appearance of acne scars and pigmentation. And if that’s your primary goal, opt for the Hollywood Laser Peel, which uses laser technology to penetrate deep within the surface of the skin to reduce the appearance of pigmentation.
- Eliminate Whiteheads and Blackheads
Extraction is one of the most important parts of the facial. The aesthetician uses specialized tools to extract whiteheads and blackheads without hurting your skin, which is not possible to do yourself at home. These blemishes clog your pores, create bumps and discoloration, and facials are incredibly effective at removing them. The Hydrafacial is the best option for this goal, as it pumps water and nutrients into your pores and sucks out whiteheads, blackheads, dirt and debris.
- Eliminate Under Eye Bags and Dark Circles
The skin under our eyes is particularly thin, so without the proper care you are prone to dark circles, under eye bags, and crow’s feet. The aesthetician knows how to treat this delicate area, and use anti-aging creams to sooth and rehydrate around your eyes/
