Benefits of Getting a Professional Facial

Published October 2, 2015 by Marni Beninger

Facials are one of the most relaxing treatments, but they offer more benefits than just being pampered. Here are a few benefits of getting a facial:

1. Cleansing
For starters, a facial gives your skin a deep cleaning. Think of all the things your skin comes into contact with in a day, everything from pollution, grease and dirt from your environment. From outdoor pollutants to makeup, it can all build up. A facial helps to deep clean the skin removing toxins and dead skin and brings out your natural skin tone. Plus, it keeps your pores from making too much oil. By decreasing the amount of oil on your face, you decrease breakouts. The exfoliation process helps your skin stay firm and tight, keeping those wrinkles at bay.

2. Stress relieving
It’s not a coincidence that you feel refreshed after a facial. Not only do facials exfoliate and moisturize your skin, the treatments also increase blood flow and promote circulation. For many women, taking a few minutes to get a facial is me-time, a time to relax and forget about work, car pools and dinner recipes. The whole treatment is a stress reliever.

3. Increased Circulation Facial treatments help to restore and improve circulation to skin layers increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells.  This is done by using a variety of different masques, including some with spice to give your skin a healthy glow and provide your skin cells with nutrients and water reducing the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin.

4. Age-fighting
Routine facials can help fight wrinkles, but there are certain additions you can do to help your skin stay wrinkle free.  Such as ensuring your skin is receiving adequate hydration and enough blood flow is reaching the skin to provide it with nutrients such as vitamins and minerals.  This will help to develop and maintain new skin cells, which are essential for a youthful and healthy appearance.
