Many women and men see facials as a treat—something they do once in a while to feel refreshed and brighten up their skin. But getting a facial once a month is a great supplement to your skincare routine.
Just like any part of your skincare regimen, facials are best when they’re done consistently and regularly. Facials allow your skin to look and feel its best!
There are numerous benefits of monthly facials, both external and internal. Here are a few reasons your skin will benefit from regular facials that are done by a licensed esthetician or dermatologist!
Combat Skin Issues
Many people get facials because they have skin issues they want to improve:
Facials can be targeted to relieve, improve, and prevent these common skin concerns. Your esthetician will be able to create a custom facial experience. With monthly facial treatments, you’ll begin to see improvements!
Minimize and Prevent the Effects of Aging
Whether you’re looking to maintain your youthful skin or minimize your wisdom lines (we’ve all got ‘em!), monthly facials can do both. Gua Sha, a form of traditional Chinese medicine, can improve circulation in your skin. Make sure your facialist is certified in Gua Sha—it requires a certain level of expertise to be done correctly!
Cleanse and Exfoliate
One of the main reasons people get facials is to deeply cleanse and exfoliate their skin. Removing dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin is a necessity for clear, healthy skin.
Receiving regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, which promotes new skin cell growth. This typically results in reduced scarring and a more even skin tone.
Improve and Maintain Skin
Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, monthly facials can improve your skin and maintain the results you’ve gotten from other procedures, such as microdermabrasion or a peel. Facials are definitely recommended before a big event, like your wedding day, but receiving them monthly ensures that your skin will be healthy for years to come, not just for one day.
While facials provide many tangible benefits, like all those listed above, one of the intangible benefits of facials is feeling relaxed and peaceful. Your esthetician will gently massage your face to relieve tension, and soothing essential oils can be used as well.
When your days are packed full with early-morning spin classes, all-day meetings, and late-night dinners, life can feel rushed and hectic. Taking a peaceful moment for yourself once a month can reduce stress and help you find mental peace.
When you look good, you feel good—it’s that simple. Because facials can alleviate common skin issues, your skin will look its best so you can feel your best. Your confidence will be boosted and your attitude will improve!
