Why it is important to get regular facials and microdermabrasion
Your face is the first thing people see when you walk into a room. Why not put your best…. face forward? Unfortunately, getting a facial is commonly seen as a luxury service or something you only do to treat yourself. However, just like getting enough sleep, exercising regularly and eating a well-balanced diet, taking care of your skin is just as important.
A staggering amount of pollution, dirt, grime and dead skin accumulates on the face, and this build up is often inevitable. We do the best to always keep our skin clean, but sometimes it isn’t enough. Although a good daily skin care routine is essential for maintaining healthy looking skin, it is also important to leave it to the professionals, every once in a while, to give you a deeper and more thorough clean.
What is a facial?
A facial is more than just a couple cucumbers on your eyes and some moisturising cream on your face. A good facial should include a mask that deeply cleanses your pores, exfoliates your skin and will leave your skin looking younger and healthier.
The benefits of facials
Skin cell renewal
One of the most important steps of a facial is exfoliation. By having your skin exfoliated, dead skill cells will be removed which activates cell turnover. This encourages the growth of new healthy cells whilst diminishing the appearance of acne scars.
Refreshed and relaxed skin
Every facial entails a facial massage which works wonders on tired, wrinkled skin. Believe it or not, certain areas of the face need to be massaged in different ways. When done correctly, this encourages lymphatic drainage as it flushes out toxins while promoting circulation.
Instant and noticeable results
The best part about a facial is that the results are instant. Just one facial and you will see immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin.
Our favourite kind of facial… Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is the process of using tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin and draw out impurities with a suction. It uses no chemicals and is non-invasive. This facial removes the dead and dry outer layer of the skin’s surface to reveal your fresh, healthy skin underneath.
How often should I get a facial?
We recommend getting a facial once a month – this way, your skin will always be looking its best. When you are in-between facials, it is important to take care of your skin by washing your face and moisturising it daily. Don’t forget to use appropriate sun protection creams – remember, SPF in sunscreen is not enough.
