How Often Do You Actual Need a Facial?

Keep your skin healthy, balanced and youthful.

A Flawless Face All Year Round

Most people start paying attention to their skin only when it comes to attending a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary, birthday or reuinion. Women especially go out of their way in their beauty regime to look their best, addressing every little beauty issue to be able to flaunt a flawless face. But, what happens to our skin for the rest of the year? Most often, due to lack of time, we tend to ignore the basic skin care practices and think it is alright to do so.

Facials should not be treated as something you do once in a while or during special occasions. They should be a regular part of your beauty regime. 

The Routine Facial

Getting a professional facial isn’t just for you to unwind, relax, or splurge once in a blue moon. Facials play a big role in keeping your skin healthy, balanced and youthful. While practicing good skin care at home is key, you should also visit your aesthetician every 4-6 weeks for that hands-on deep cleaning. It takes that amount of time for the skin cells to move through a full life cycle of cell growth and make their way from the dermis to the surface of the skin where they are naturally sloughed off.

Everyone can benefit from a professional facial, but those with acne, clogged pores or brown spots, consistent care is required to always stay on top of the condition to get the skin looking clear. Facials offer many skin benefits!

The Benefits

Benefits of a facial include:
  • Expert skin analysis from one of our Aestheticians who understand your skin type and how to care for it.
  • Professional strength exfoliation to smooth the skin, lighten discoloration from sun and breakouts.
  • Both manual and mechanical extractions of blackheads and clogged pores to give you smooth, balanced skin.
  • Intensive hydration to repair the skin’s moisture barrier to keep skin looking plump and dewy.
  • Increased circulation for brighter and glowing skin.
  • Professional guidance for your morning and nighttime at-home regimen.
  • Time for yourself. Who doesn't want to lay back and be pampered for an hour?!

How to Make the Most of Your Facials

  •  Let your skin breathe after a facial treatment.
  •  Never start to apply makeup after a facial. Your pores have just been cleaned and require oxygen, so do not clog them.
  • Try to take a nap after your facial. Avoid rushing back to work or taking up stressful activities. The facial tissues have been relaxed so let them be that way for some time.
  • Above all else, be kind to yourself. You deserve it!
