5 Reasons you really should go get a Facial.

Whether you are one of the people who enjoy splurging on the latest skincare products, or if you are still using the trusted skincare brand that your mom bought you when you were 12 - everyone loves having beautiful skin.

Facials are one of the most misunderstood beauty rituals out there, but this seemingly unnecessary and ineffective “indulgence” is essential to your glowing skincare regimen. Here are 5 facts about facials that will turn you into a facial fanatic quicker than you can say “blackhead.”

1. Expert Skin Analysis

Your beautician sees the real you and by that I mean, you without any makeup.
A professional beauty therapist will examine, cleanse, treat and assess your true skin type in order to cater to your specific needs and provide you with personalized skin recommendations, products and a regimen perfect for you!

2. Professional Advice

Even though you think you’ve got it (your skin) covered – don’t skip out on seeking some professional help.
Not treating serious skin conditions can lead to long-term damage. Having an expert to answer your questions, identify changes and educate you can make all the difference in the world.

3. Clean out Blackheads and Clear your Pores

You shouldn’t be popping pimples yourself – leave it to the professionals.
Blackhead extraction is an important part of your skincare routine, but if it isn’t done properly it can lead to skin irritation, blackhead buildup, bigger pores, scarring and dark marks. Regular and professional extraction will prevent damage and keep your skin clear. Facialists often use a gentle steam to open your pores and allow them to breathe. A professional and focused facial will cleanse your skin in ways you simply can’t at home.

4. Stress Release

Happy self = Happy skin.
As we all know stress can cause skin issues and breakouts. The more you take care of yourself emotionally and physically, the better you feel, and the better your complexion will be. What is one of the key elements of a great facial? An excellent massage that improves blood circulation and draining effects to ensure a super radiant complexion.

5. Because you Deserve it!

Find your happy place.
Life is stressful, and sometimes it can feel like you are taking care of everyone, but yourself. Take a few hours to relax and clear your mind, because nothing feels as good as being pampered by a professional every now and then! And if going for a facial every few weeks is the key to perfect skin – then that’s a price I’m willing to pay. Go on – take a few deep, cleansing breaths and enjoy.
