Nothing feels more satisfying than gliding your fingers over a soft and smooth skin. You all must follow a self-care routine to maintain your skin but it’s always good to seek the help of a professional every once in a while. Even if you do not have blemishes, hyperpigmentation, severe acne, or any other problems, your face needs to be pampered by a trained professional to keep it healthy and free of skin issues.
The satisfaction you get when you feel a hydrating serum working its way through in numerous layers of your skin is nothing less than pure bliss. Although most people believe the whole process is nothing but a waste of money, a skillful facial actually is a multi-step process that caters to the essential needs of your skin, not to mention it is also a golden opportunity to let your mind and body rest.
The main purpose of basic facials is to thoroughly cleanse your skin, rid it of impurities and feed your starving skin with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E, as well as peptides and hyaluronic acid. Pampering your skin leaves your complexion refreshed and radiant.
And what’s more, is that facial massage activates your sympathetic nervous system. This reduces your anxiety levels and uplifts your mood. A good facial massage not just keeps your skin glowing, but it also affects the functioning of the other organs.
But before getting your facial done you should always consult with the aesthetician. Tell her if you have allergies and what your current skincare regimen is, including any medications you take that might cause a reaction or increase your skin’s sensitivity.
Your aesthetician will then analyze your skin under a magnifying lamp and choose appropriate skin treatment which includes cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, facial massage and the best part that is, advise on home skin care. Facials work best only if you take them regularly aside from your daily skin care routine.
If you think that going to an aesthetician once in every blue moon will leave you with an eternity long supple skin, then please wake up and come back to the land of the living.
Ideally, you should get facials on a monthly basis because that’s how long it takes for your skin to regenerate. Remember, a professional can help you understand your skin better and help rejuvenate your skin and uplift your mood.
