Did you know that one in three Americans struggles with skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema?
Add in other everyday factors like stress, dry air, and sun exposure, and it’s no wonder our skin is such a mess!
Aside from upping your daily skincare routine, what else can you do to get back that healthy, glowing complexion you deserve?
Here’s a quick overview of 10 facial benefits you might not have heard of before.
1. Removes Pollutants
No matter how much you scrub and rinse, your DIY efforts can only remove so much dirt, oil, and grime from your skin. A professional facial cleans and detoxifies your skin in ways you simply can’t achieve at home.
2. Improves Your Mood
It’s not just your imagination when you feel amazing walking out of the spa. Studies show that facial massage activates your sympathetic nervous system, which reduces anxiety and boosts those feel-good hormones!
3. Tones Your Skin
Cleansing is only one (albeit very important) step of the facial process. Facial massage actually helps to tone and tighten your skin, strengthening your facial and throat muscles while reducing wrinkles and sagging.
4. Reduce Signs of Stress
Stress takes its toll on your skin, especially after the age of 30. Regular facial treatments boost your skin’s production of collagen and accelerate cell regeneration, helping you maintain that youthful glow.
5. Promotes Circulation
You likely know that massage improves blood flow throughout the body, and it’s no different with a facial. As your esthetician massages your face, throat, and decolletage, you’ll receive a healthy boost of oxygen and nutrients in those areas.
6. Reduces Puffy Eyes
If the skin under your eyes often looks dark, saggy, or puffy, facials could quickly become your new best friend. Specialized serums and creams brighten and tighten that sensitive area, leaving you with a healthier, more youthful complexion.
7. Deep Hydration
Colorado’s dry air is great for outdoor activities, but it can be brutal on your skin — especially during the winter months! Facials bring moisture into the deepest layers of your skin, nourishing and “plumping” your entire complexion.
8. Removes Dead Skin
Another DIY challenge is removing enough dead skin cells without damaging or drying your skin. The steam treatment you receive during a facial opens those pores and prepares them for scrubbing, which removes even the tiniest dead cells along with blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum.
9. Treats Acne
Dealing with acne on your own is frustrating at best, and doing it incorrectly can leave you with unsightly scars. Estheticians have the skills, tools, and products to effectively detox your skin and keep those breakouts at bay.
10. Reduces Pigmentation
Sun exposure, age, and other factors can lead to dark, tan, or red spots on your skin. Regular facial treatments help to reduce hyperpigmentation and give you a more even skin tone.
