Facials are an incredibly popular treatment, and for a good reason. There are many benefits to facials for your skin, but there are also a lot of other benefits that you may not know about.

Here are some of the benefits you can get from a facial:

Facials & Stress Reduction – Did you know that there are hundreds of pressure points on your face? The act of getting a facial will massage these pressure points, which reduces stress. You should come away from your facial feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Blood Circulation – Blood circulation is essential for your skin. Improved blood circulation can speed up cell regeneration, which means cells will be replaced more quickly – and overall, you’ll notice an improvement in the condition of your skin if you get regular facials.

Acne Improvement – Acne is a complex problem to deal with. There are so many causes, including environmental factors like air quality. Facials can be beneficial for acne, helping to remove oils on the skin surface and helping to improve acne scarring with regular treatment.

Exfoliation – Exfoliation is essential for your skin. While it’s important not to overdo exfoliation, it’s still important to remove dead skin cells to make room for fresh new ones. A good facial will involve exfoliation, and any products applied will penetrate more deeply into the skin.

Spot Removal – Blackheads and whiteheads can be a pain to remove. Done incorrectly, it can lead to scarring, so it’s important to do this right. Your facial can include extraction, which if you have a collection of blackheads and whiteheads, you can have them taken care of in one swoop.

Reduce Signs of Tiredness – Many of us suffer from under-eye bags. The cause may be tiredness, or it could be genetic. Either way, it’s a pain to deal with. Regular facials can help to deal with under-eye bags, as well as fine lines around your eyes.

It’s important to take care of this area properly. The skin under your eyes is very delicate, so you’ll have to go gently. Regular facials can help to ‘treat’ the area with the care and sensitivity it needs.

Anti-Ageing – Facials are a beneficial treatment for anti-ageing. As we age, the elasticity in our skin begins to reduce. This causes the skin to sag. To combat this, there are treatments to boost collagen production. Collagen under the skin can help our skin to stay firm.

Improve Skin Tone – Many of us suffer from redness, dark patches, and uneven skin in general. This can be down to sun damage and hormonal changes. Facials can brighten up your skin, providing you with a more even skin tone. If you find yourself reaching for foundation or concealer every day, you may want to try a regular facial to help combat this.

Relaxation – Facials offer you a chance to truly switch off. With so many of us multitasking and juggling many responsibilities at once, it can be hard to let go of our stresses and worries. A facial can give you a chance to switch off your phone, close your eyes, and have some much needed ‘me time’.
