People go to the spa for a facial for different reasons. For some people, it forms an effective part of their anti-ageing regime. Other people find facials effective for removing unsightly blackheads. And then there are the people who have a facial simply for the sake of relaxation and pampering. Whatever the reason, choosing the best facial treatment for you will largely depend on your skin type. In general, facials cleanse and exfoliate your skin, nourishing and hydrating it for a younger looking, clearer complexion. The facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that includes steam, face masks, exfoliation, cleansing, a facial massage, and various lotions and creams. It's never too early or too late to start taking good care of your skin and facials work best when they form a regular part of your skincare regime.
Even though it is essential to have a good skin care routine everyday at home, it is important to include regular visits to a spa for a professional facial treatment. These consistent visits for professional care are key to a healthy skin. It is ideal to get a facial every four to six weeks because that's how long it takes for your skin to regenerate. If this is not possible, go at least four times a year, at the change of the seasons. If you are trying to clear up a bout of acne, you may need to go more frequently, but otherwise once a month is plenty because you can overdo it, especially if you have a sensitive skin. Regular facial treatments at the spa will rid your skin of oil build up, toxins, and dirt. It will also remove any bacteria that could cause skin issues. Your circulation will be boosted and the lymphatic system stimulated to detoxify your skin and keep it looking healthy and youthful.
You will notice, after getting a facial, that your make-up goes on more smoothly and evenly, and you may even notice how much less you actually need to apply. Because our aestheticians deeply cleanse and exfoliate your face, you are ensured that your home skincare products will have maximum efficiency. This is because they will be able to fully absorb into your skin and thus do their jobs properly. Facials also offer the best anti-ageing treatment around. They will improve your skin's tone, texture, and elasticity, greatly decreasing the chances of needing to spend money on expensive procedures and injections. The bonus of getting a facial is the facial massage that is often incorporated into the treatment. Facial massages are just as necessary as regular massages, because they promote lymphatic drainage, flushing out toxins and boosting your circulation.
A massage also leaves your skin feeling relaxed and refreshed. The exfoliation you receive during your facial is important for jump-starting healthy skin cell renewal. The best part about getting a facial is that you will see instant, noticeable results. After just one facial you will be able to see and feel an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin.
