Would it surprise you to learn that 59% of Americans feel uncomfortable in their own skin?
If you’ve ever struggled with acne, eczema, or other common conditions, perhaps you can relate. Skin issues (particularly when you’re younger) can have a lasting impact on your self-esteem.
While there’s no magical cure that will guarantee you have perfect skin every day, there are steps you can take to improve your skin’s appearance. If your DIY skincare routine isn’t giving you the results you want, it’s time to consider a spa facial.
More than just a relaxing experience, facials can do wonders for your looks — and your confidence! Here are four benefits of facials you may not have heard before.
1. Cleanse & Detoxify Your Skin
No matter how great your home skincare routine might be, you’ll never achieve the cleansing and detoxifying power of a professional facial.
Your esthetician will examine your skin and recommend the perfect products and treatment methods for your needs. They’ll use steam to open up your pores and treat your skin using products rich in antioxidants. As a result, you’ll have noticeably smooth, glowing skin.
2. Reduce Stress & Anxiety
You probably know that massages are great for stress relief, but what about facial treatments? You guessed it: Stress reduction is one of the more surprising benefits of facials.
During your session, your esthetician will include some relaxing facial massage techniques. This doesn’t just feel good. It also activates your sympathetic nervous system, which helps to reduce anxiety and boost your mood.
3. Reverse Signs of Aging
Let’s face it — none of us are getting any younger! Especially after the age of 30, you’ll start to notice signs of “wear and tear” on your face in the form of crow’s feet, eye bags, and sagging skin.
You may not be able to change your age, but you can shave a few years off your appearance. Age-defying facial treatments stimulate collagen production and boost cell reproduction. In turn, you get to keep your youthful appearance for longer.
4. Eliminate Acne & Acne Marks
Do you struggle with acne, whiteheads, or blackheads? It’s tempting to squeeze them and try to get rid of them yourself, but you run a major risk of scarring with DIY efforts.
A better option is to visit an esthetician for professional treatment. They’ll use products that remove contaminants and excess oil from your skin, reducing your chances of future breakouts. Facials can also help to reduce any acne marks or scars you already have.
Experience These Benefits of Facials for Yourself
As we’ve discussed, spa facials aren’t just something to do occasionally or while you’re on vacation. The truth is that facials come with an array of physical and emotional benefits (plus they feel great too).
