I highly recommend getting a regularly scheduled facial 1-2 a month. Why, you say?
#1 Powerful and Deep Cleansing
The first 2 steps in a facial is a cleanse. Each cleanse is meant to remove dirt, debris and other material from the surface of the skin in preparation for a deep cleaning. Another step in a typical facial is a mask. Masks contain deep-cleaning ingredients that aid your skin in detoxifying itself. These ingredients remove dirt, oil, bacteria and toxins from your skin's follicles. This process gives you healthier skin and can prevent pimples, blackheads and other forms of acne from plaguing your skin. A regular facial routine means that your skin becomes less prone to acne and infections over time.
#2 Increase Blood Circulation
When doing a facial, massaging your skin with your hands or having your face massaged by a professional helps to improve blood circulation in your skin. The better the blood circulation in your skin, the more nutrients your skin receives from this increased blood flow. Stimulate the blood and flow of oxygen. It also aids the skin and its underlying tissue and help with the removal of waste products.
#3 Increase Cell Turnover and Regeneration.
Healing and regeneration of your skin cells, preventing dark marks and dry skin from becoming prevalent. Increased cell turnover helps get rid of dull, lifeless and congested skin.
#4 Relieve Stress
A good facial comes with a built in nap. It relieves stress by relaxing you completely. The sensation and smells of the different products and the soothing feeling of being pampered do wonders to lower your stress levels. When done regularly, facials help you to feel less stressed over time, even possibly resulting in a lower blood pressure.
#5 Keep Skin Ageless
Many of the masks used in facials contain collagen, the building-block protein of the skin. Having one facial every year might not give you the amazing benefits of collagen, but regular facials mean that your skin receives a healthy dose of collagen every now and then. Your skin will be elastic, plumper and more hydrated, meaning that it wrinkles much more slowly, allowing you to remain younger-looking for a longer period of time.
#6 Smooth Skin
Most facial masks include exfoliating ingredients that remove dead skin cells and other impurities from the surface of the skin. Frequent exfoliation removes blackheads, whiteheads, acne and other blemishes from the skin to keep it looking and feeling soft and smooth. Who doesn't want smooth skin?
#7 Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Regular facial massages have the ability to smooth fine lines and premature wrinkles over time. Clear, clean and hydrated skin can be yours soon.
