A facial is a multi-step, multi-purpose skin treatment including steam, face masks, exfoliation, cleansing, a face massage and a variety of creams and lotions. There are many types of facial treatments, and choosing the one you need depends on your skin type and skin issues. Some facial treatments are designed to deep-clean the skin, while others offer moisturizing benefits, and still others help to relieve stress, which often causes acne.
No matter the type, all facials have some amazing benefits for your skin:
Facials provide deeper exfoliation than you can achieve at home. Exfoliation smoothes skin, allows for great penetration of products (i.e. moisturizers or serums), unclogs pores, improves skin ability to retain hydration, and evens skin tone to just name a few benefits.
Facials cleanse and hydrate the skin, which offers a great sense of rejuvenation for your face. Many facials include exfoliation, which can remove dead skin and make room for new skin cells to flourish. Plus, the moisturizers used are often rich in nutrients that can promote skin health. If you’re looking to get a facial to moisturize dry skin that’s been exposed to harsh heat or a strong winter, then it’s not a bad idea.
3. Prevent Aging
While there is no way to stop the aging process, a variety of facial treatments may help slow the skin-aging process and offer you more youthful, supple skin. Each can be used to remove dead and damaged skin and increase the production of collagen, which is essential for plump and healthy skin cells. Facials slow the aging process. They allow your skin to feel healthier, smoother and look more radiant. Facials reduce fine lines, age spots, and relieve dehydrated skin. With these benefits, facials make us feel better about our skin. With the use of exfoliation, massage, and the penetration of nutrients and antioxidants, facials also fight to reverse aging. We will all age, but we can do it more slowly with glowing, firm, and hydrated skin.
4. Increase Blood Circulation
A study says that massage improves blood circulation in your body. The same applies to your face. Improved blood circulation in your face means that your cells get lots of oxygen and nutrients that are carried along with the blood. This translates to healthier and efficient cells and a glowing face.
5. Eliminate Under Eye Dark Circles
The skin under your eyes needs special attention because it is way thinner than the skin on the rest of the face. And when you don’t treat it in the right manner, you get under eye bags, dark circles, and crow’s feet. The aestheticians know how to treat the delicate under eye area. The eye creams used by them are specially prepared to treat the sensitive skin around your eyes and have anti-aging benefits. Many use cucumber slices during treatment for soothing your eyes. Cucumber contains vitamin K that rehydrates tired skin and eliminates dark circles and wrinkles.
