Facials are a luxurious experience that refresh your whole perspective. They are also important for good health. Here are a few reasons to make facials a regular part of your health routine.

1. Slows aging process — a regular facial will stimulate your facial muscles and strengthen the skin’s tone, making it more resistant to sagging and wrinkling.

 

2. Rehydrates your skin — a facial helps remove dead skin cells, which enables your skin to better absorb products for protection, hydration and nourishment

3. Clean impurities — cleansing the skin of impurities, oily build-up and and debris allows your skin to maintain a healthy PH balance and enhance its ability to fight off disease and aging.

4. Professional evaluation — People define their skin types incorrectly. An esthetician is trained to correctly analyze skin types and suggest appropriate cleansing and hydrating products and, when necessary, refer clients to a dermatologist. By getting frequent facials, your esthetician can evaluate your skin’s condition which can change based on your health, stress or age. This allows the esthetician to recommend appropriate treatments.

5. Alternative to invasive procedures — instead of paying for more expensive and invasive medical procedures, a high-end salon can offer professional strength exfoliation and other treatments that will prevent aging and reduce some damage with less down time and cost.

6. Increase circulation for glowing skin — When blood circulation slows the skin’s health is impaired. Aging leads to slowed circulation, which inevitably results in dull, tired looking skin. A benefit of facial massages and steam is that both processes help to increase blood flow and this increase in circulation brings new nutrients to the skin. The new nutrients in the skin allow and encourage a youthful radiance and glow to surface.

7. Skin cancer screening — Skin cancer is on the rise so it continues to become increasingly important to regularly check your skin for changes to moles and to look out for abnormal skin growths. Estheticians are trained to know exactly what red flags to look out for.
