When we think of a trip to the spa, our minds are filled with images of fluffy robes,cucumber slices, and faces covered in concoctions of various colours. Just the mere thought of it makes us breathe deeper, and our bodies instantly relax.Ah, facials.
We all love them, and honestly, what’s not to love? Not only do they make you look and feel amazing, but while you slip seamlessly into spa serenity, those facials are providing you with so much more than you might think!
On a daily basis our faces exposed to everything from sun and dust, to bacteria and pollutants, and this often results in anything and everything from a dull complexion, to acne, blemishes, and wrinkles – Eek! Often encouraged to practice and maintain a skincare routine at home, we scour the internet for advice, but where one article says to, the other says fro, and we quickly find ourselves drowning in misunderstood information, with a list of products and methods we don’t fully understand.
All this is to say, sometimes we may need a little help, and aside from the pampering aspect of it, heading to the spa can provide you with the information you need to up your home skincare game, while also administering benefits that the average home skincare routine can’t always deliver. Thus, at least an occasional facial done by a professional is a great idea, plus, it feels a-mazing.
1. Reverse the Effects of Aging
As you age, the production of collagen diminishes, which results in fine lines and wrinkles, and your skin begins to lost elasticity. However, regular facial treatments actually encourage cell regeneration and collagen production, which may help your skin to look and feel younger and more full. Plus, facials also often include some sort of massage, which aids in circulation and can give you that glowy, youthful look!2. Even Out Your Complexion
Sun damage is a real, and serious thing, and while we should, most of us don’t include sunblock in our daily routine – risky business considering where we live.This can take a real toll on the skin and often results in dark patches and freckles (among other things).But have no fear! There are facials that are made specifically to reduce the signs of sun damage.
(No but seriously, wear sunblock.)
3. Get a Deep Cleanse
Try as we might, it’s actually pretty hard to get rid of all the build-up on our faces, whether we realize it or not. A good deep cleansing facial will leave you with a brighter, healthier complexion and more refined pores. It also lessens chances for blackheads and whiteheads to appear. Score!
