Customers often ask us: "What is the true value of a facial?"
Our faces are affected by so many elements daily – from environmental stressors to hereditary skin issues to lifestyle – that they require a great deal of our attention. No matter who you are, we all want youthful, healthy skin for years to come, right? But in order to get that skin, we have to put in the work.
Beyond diet, fitness, and sleep, your next savior is the facial.
At-home facials are great for cleansing, and hydrating, but lack the control of a professional facial – ingredients, knowledge of how to apply, and how long to apply. Key facial steps like extractions, massage and peels are those processes that lead to more long-term results.
We live in a world of pollution and we touch our faces too often distributing oils, contaminants, and bacteria. Our pores get clogged and need help with deep cleansing. Extractions help kick these contaminants to the curb. Doing them yourself can break the skin and leave scars, but the professionals get the deepest of grime out in a non-abrasive manner, giving you an overall healthier epidermis. Think less puffiness, fewer breakouts, and clean skin.
Massage is important for increasing circulation which helps the skin heal itself as well as keeping skin taut and an outward glow. It also promotes collagen production, which smooths out fine lines and decreases the likelihood of sagging. Massage also promotes lymphatic drainage that moves toxins and fluids away.
Last but not least, there is exfoliation and the peel process that banishes old dead skin cells and allows for higher turnover of cells and that youthful glow. Spa facials include a much more effective exfoliation process and rids the face of everything the daily wash cannot. Combined, these processes lead to new skin cell growth and allow products to penetrate the skin, improving hydration retention.
Simply put, all steps combined offer a deeper clean, heightened hydration, tighter pores, less puffiness and fewer breakouts. The texture of your skin and the evenness of your complexion all improves for decades if you treat the rest of your body right. Sounds like an all around WIN!
