Facials are often considered a luxury self-care treatment, but they shouldn’t be considered something to “treat yourself” with. Getting facials on a regular basis has some immense benefits. Unfortunately, people are sometimes overwhelmed with choosing a facial, which causes them to not go through with it. To help you figure out which facial is best for your skin, let’s take a look at a few things you should keep in mind.
Why Should You Consider Getting a Facial?
First off, let’s talk about some of the amazing benefits of getting facials on a regular basis (or even just treating yourself to one every once in a while). If you’re looking to get glowing skin that feels soft and rejuvenated, then a facial is exactly what you need. Our faces are exposed to a lot of wear and tear every single day. From walking in cold or hot weather to withstanding the makeup we put on and take off, our faces deserve some TLC.
Facials are the best way to really give a deep clean to your skin. Even if you have a strict skincare regime and use high-quality cleansing products, there’s no clean like the after-a-facial clean. Many facials start with a nice hot steam to open up your pores. This way, the cleanser used has the best opportunity to remove buildup and dirt from deep within your skin.
Getting a facial will also help tighten the skin. Even if you don’t get something like an anti-aging skin resurfacing treatment, all facials will make your skin feel tighter afterward. This is because the massaging during a facial helps promote blood circulation and collagen production, both of which are needed for tight, young-looking skin.
And last but certainly not least, getting a facial is simply relaxing. If you’re looking for a great way to de-stress and treat yourself to some well-deserved self-care, then getting a facial is the way to go. With a relaxing ambiance, great-smelling products, and a much-needed facial massage, you’ll leave your massage appointment feeling like a brand new person.
Factors to Keep in Mind
Due to the wide variety of facial products available today, there’s a facial for everyone. But you should know a few things before booking your appointment at the medical spa. First, if you have a bad skin condition with open sores, it’s important to talk to the facial technician beforehand. This is because some skin conditions can be made worse by certain facials, which you definitely don’t want to happen. But visiting a facial spa can be beneficial if you struggle to get or maintain clear skin. Working with a professional skincare technician allows you to learn more about your skin. Furthermore, the technician will know exactly which products can help your skin and when you visit them regularly, clear skin is absolutely achievable.
Second, you should consider your skin type when choosing which type of facial you want. If you have dry skin, you may want to go for a hydrafacial or a type of facial that focuses on really hydrating the skin. But if you have oily skin, you may want to consider a facial service that focuses on pulling dirt and oil from the pores. Knowing your skin type is important to ensure you choose the best facial for your needs.
Popular Types of Facials
If you visit a full med spa, you’ll have access to several different types of facials. If you’re looking for some intense hydration, consider a hydrafacial. This facial promotes extreme hydration, deep cleanses and fills the skin with plenty of good antioxidants, and helps clients get glowing skin.
If you’re wishing you had younger, more damage-free, tighter skin, then a chemical peel may be just what you need. While a chemical peel can sound a little scary, it’s completely safe and very effective. This treatment essentially removes the outer layers of the skin to reveal the healthier, newer skin underneath. In doing this, the skin improves in both color and tightness. If you have wrinkles, uneven skin colors, or overall blemishes, then you may benefit from chemical peels.
Dermaplane facials are also extremely popular. This treatment involves some major exfoliation, which leaves the skin feeling as soft as possible. In addition to exfoliation, this facial also removes any peach fuzz on the face with a sharp razor. People who are looking to get glowing skin and feel like they have brand new skin should consider dermaplaning.
