The Benefits Of Getting A Monthly Facial Treatment

Let's face it, no one is getting any younger. Every day people continue to age, and this is most noticeable by the skin's appearance. Fortunately, by taking proper care of your skin, it is possible to continue having softer, younger looking skin longer than expected. One way to do this is by getting a professional facial every month. These are some of the benefits of getting a monthly facial treatment.

Helping You De-Stress

Those who have especially stressful lives or careers often begin noticing the tiny lines of aging earlier than others. Having a facial performed is one of the most calming and relaxing services offered in a salon. A facial helps to destress the mind, body, and skin. This is because the face has many different pressure points that are massaged during a facial treatment. The massaging activates the sympathetic nervous system which then enhances your mood and reduces stress and anxiety.

Cleansing And Detoxifying The Skin

Before the facial massage begins, the facialist will use warm steam to open up the pores of your skin. Then your skin will be cleansed and detoxified with special cleansing and detoxifying products that get deep into the pores to remove dirt and oil. If you have blackheads, whiteheads or other signs of acne, the facialist may use special tools to remove them and then apply a medication that contains salicylic acid that absorbs excess oil and helps clear up acne-prone skin.

Exfoliating The Skin 

Getting a facial also exfoliates the skin. Dead skin cells are removed during the cleansing step of the facial and this leaves the skin feeling much softer and smoother. With the dry, flaky skin removed, your face will now feel rejuvenated.

Making The Skin Look Younger 

Having a monthly facial treatment performed also helps keep the skin looking and feeling younger. The massage step of the facial helps improve blood circulation throughout the body, and this gives the cells of the skin extra oxygen and nutrients through the blood flow. The massage also improves cell regeneration and increases the development of collagen which results in younger, healthier looking skin.

Getting a monthly facial treatment is a great way to treat yourself while also helping to ensure your skin is in the best condition possible. You will have something to look forward to every month and may even meet a few new friends at the salon in the process. To learn more about facials, speak with a professional who offers them.
