Why We Love Facial Treatments (And You Should, Too!)
While the skin on your face is the most visible, it's also the most delicate, and therefore the most vulnerable to blemishes, discoloration, and aging. That's why regularly receiving facial treatments makes up an important part of a healthful personal care regimen that will literally help you put your best face forward, every single day of the year.
What is a facial treatment?
A facial is actually a series of different treatments that help to clean and nourish the skin. A facial treatment typically begins with exfoliation, to clear away dead cells on the skin's surface that may feed bacteria and block pores. This may be followed with a cleansing to make sure the pores are clear, and a nutrient wash to fortify newly developing skin cells with healthful vitamins. A facial treatment also includes a light massage to encourage circulation and lymphatic flow, which the body uses to clear dead and damaged cells internally. Lastly, most facial treatments also involve a moisturizing agent, useful to replenish the skin's balance in case too many natural oils are lost during the cleansing process.
How do facial treatments improve the health of your skin?
Cleanliness and nourishment are the most obvious benefits to receiving facial treatments, and they will drastically reduce embarrassing blemishes and outbreaks, while proving your skin with that healthy "glow" that helps you radiate confidence in your daily life. Facial treatments may also mitigate sun damage, and delay the effects of aging, helping the skin remain evenly toned and elastic, staving off discoloration and greatly reducing the onset, and the appearance of wrinkles.
How often you should get a facial?
Everyone's skin differs in balance and complexity, so the exact timing for regular facial treatments may vary. However, skin care specialists generally recommend an every three to four week time frame, and with very good reason.
The cells of your skin undergo a three to four week life cycle, beginning with cell growth and ending with exfoliation. Therefore, aligning your facial treatments regimen with this time frame will prevent dead skin cells from sticking around long enough to block or clog your pores, and also ensures new skin growth will receive abundant nourishment so that it remains healthy and balanced.
For those more prone to acne, receiving a facial treatment every two weeks may be recommended until the skin has achieved a more harmonious balance. Weather may also change the ideal timeframe. During hot and humid times of the year, or cold and dry months, more frequent facial treatments may be a beneficial approach.
