As an esthetician I hear a lot that facials are a “luxury.” While facials are very relaxing they are used to improve the overall wellness of your skin. Why is this important? Your skin is your largest organ. Your skin serves many purposes to protect you such as defend you from antibodies, keeps you warm, cools you off, and list goes on! You need your skin to be at its best health in order to function properly. This means having a good skincare regime and getting regular facials. I recommend seeing an esthetician at least once a month. Here are some of the benefits you will receive when working with a skin care professional.
Who doesn’t pick at their skin? When you pick you are not only causing more breakouts. You are also creating scarring on your skin when you do not extract properly. Extraction is a delicate procedure that must be done hygienically and carefully. Estheticians are trained to properly extract impurities from the skin without damaging your skin. By regularly removing the gunk out of your pores, your skin will serve you better.
Our facials include massage of the face, décolleté, hand and arm, and scalp. Not only does this send us into deep relaxation but it helps get rid of toxins and reduces fluid retention. By getting rid of toxins we also promote circulation, which improves the tone and elasticity.
By seeing an esthetician regularly they can examine your skin and determine and proper skin care regime for your needs. They will also be able to track your progress and edit your routine if your skin needs adjusting.
It is impossible to avoid all environmental damages. Our skin is a sponge just soaking these free radicals up. Getting deep exfoliation with fruit acid peels and deep cleansing can help keep your skin healthy and smooth.
Life can be hectic often times. Our skin can also indicate the stress we are facing. It is quite common to have acne breakouts while going through a crazy time. Spending an hour in a peaceful environment can restore your peace of mind as well as skin.
These are just a few ways in which your skin is constantly working to protect you. It is time you start taking care of your skin while enjoying the relaxing benefits.
