Hello and thank you for taking the time to read our new blog post on 'Benefits Of Facials'
Who doesn't love a relaxing Facial !!
Before we delve in to the many wonders of the benefits of having Facials, I am often told 'Facials are just to relax'
Yes Facials are super relaxing, some even fall asleep during the treatment.
Facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent pampering. They have enormous benefits to the health and wellness of your skin, both in the short and long term.
When you consider all of the regular visits you make (dentist, hair, salon, gym) you'll realize you really should be focusing some of that time on your skin. Our skin is put through a lot on a daily basis.
Lets take a further look -
Our skin is our bodies largest organ.
Our body is made up of 70% water.
A professional Facial offers you the opportunity to work with a skincare specialist who will analyze your skin, help you to improve your complexion and show you how to have proper home care for your skin. A Facial provides you with information to help you continue achieving amazing skin, daily - and long term!
A Facial includes deep cleansing, as well as exfoliation, which helps unclog your pores along with extracting (if necessary) to help eliminate blemishes.
A specific mask, suited for your skin can help to detoxify, calm, energise, tone and hydrate the skin.
A Facial helps to increase circulation and stimulate the skin. It can help slow down premature ageing by custom targeting your skincare.
Facials are a great preventative to help beat wrinkles before they occur. Keeping your skin hydrated will help keep the skin moist and stop dehydration and more fine lines and wrinkles
Most people find having a professional facial a pleasant and deeply relaxing and uplifting experience.
Multiple studies have shown that during a relaxing treatment, such as Massage or Facials can lower cortisol levels, increase dopamine and serotonin (our happy feel good hormone)
Also lowering excitatory hormones like norepinephrine and epinephrine.
Having too much norepinephrine or epinephrine can lead to feelings of anxiety.
The Life Cycle Of A Facial -
Immediate results - Your skin is radiant and healthy looking
48 - 72 hours your skin is most hydrated as circulation has been boosted
28 - 48 days Cell Regeneration - Long term results of the Facial start to kick in
4 - 6 Weeks - Recommended in between appointments
Your skin should be treated with care. It serves us for a long time.
As well as a monthly Facial, it is highly recommended you continue home care with prescribed products your skincare therapist has recommended. This will help you achieve those amazing (and long term) results
