Are there health benefits to having a professional facial? You know the benefits if you’ve had one. You feel them during and following the facial. It is a great way to find out how your skin is reacting to outside and inside elements like pollution, hormones, and stress.
Getting a facial steam can help increase the circulation of blood in the face. It also opens up the pores and cleanses your skin thoroughly.
It can help reduce stress. A facial puts you in a very relaxed state. Until you experience the process of this wonderful feeling, it is unknown as to how wonderful and relaxed you can feel. It relaxes the senses, nerves, and muscles. There are hundreds of pressure points on your face that are connected to various systems in your body.
Getting a deep cleansing of the facial skin increases circulation. A facial can detoxify, exfoliate, and hydrate. It leaves you feeling rejuvenated.
Keeping your skin healthy is a part of anti-aging. You’ll notice a younger look and feel to your face immediately after the facial. Regular facials boost cell regeneration and promote collagen development.
Our skin is exposed to all types of environmental toxins every day. Your face needs a way to recover from these. Even if you cleanse and wash your face every day, you need facials to detoxify it.
Your skin is the largest organ and a direct reflection of internal healthiness.
In addition, you’ll benefit from the massaging of the head and neck area and the arms and hands.
Your skin type (oily, dry, prone to acne, etc), the condition of your skin, your skincare goals, and your budget will determine how often you should get a facial. Consult a Licensed Esthetician. It is important to learn the healthiness of your facial skin. This treatment is very beneficial. Only you’ll know how it feels and looks!
