When people say a face lights up the room, they most are referring to a well cared for and properly moisturized skin. Your face needs the same and even more care as the rest of your body, so facials are essential.
Unfortunately, many people consider facials to be a form of luxury set aside for days they want to treat themselves. The truth, however, is that facials are an essential part of every skin regimen and should be gotten regularly. Facials help in delaying signs of ageing, eliminating blackheads, increasing collagen production and improving skin elasticity, leaving your skin with a radiant, healthy glow.

Here are 6 reasons why you should get a facial done regularly:


It Helps With Skin Cell Renewal
Exfoliation is one crucial step when getting a facial. While you can exfoliate your skin at home, getting facials is a way to get rid of dead skin cells properly.
During facials, you either get microdermabrasion, or a fruit acid peel, which helps remove dead skin cells. Exfoliations during facials are specifically catered to your skin type and would leave you with smooth skin, increase cellular turn over, and break up skin discolouration. The exfoliation process helps fastens cell turnover, allowing for the growth of new, healthy cells.

It Cleans Out Blackhead And Clogged Pores
Another vital step when getting a facial is extraction. With proper preparation and skin softening techniques, an esthetician uses an extraction tool to extract all the whiteheads and blackheads without hurting your skin.
These blackheads and whiteheads clog your skin pores making your skin look dull. Facials get past surface cleansing, refine your pores, and leave your skin looking and feeling rejuvenated. Facials give your face the deep cleaning it needs, and this is why you must get facials done regularly.

It Is Relaxing
Massages are great for relaxing and balancing your mind. Your face is often the first part of your body to show signs of stress. Facials relieve your face of all signs of stress. Facial treatments relax your face muscles and provide that stress relief you need.
Facials stimulate your lymphatic vessels and detoxify your skin, making it young and youthful. The great smell of face masks is also an added addition to this soothing, relaxing experience.

It Has Anti-aging Effects
Facial treatments help slow down the face’s ageing process and prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
Anti-ageing creams used during facial treatments immediately increase blood circulation, oxygen flow, thus promoting collagen production and improving skin elasticity.
After facial treatment, there is a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and in turn, it keeps them at bay in the long run. In layman’s terms, facials help slow down the ageing clock.

It Helps You Know Your Skin Better
During facials, a good aesthetician analyses your skin condition and helps you in deciding the best facial treatment for your skin type. Estheticians get up close personal with the skin during facial treatments allowing them to analyse the skin and choosing a face treatment best for you.
The specialist also diagnoses skin disorders, if any. Each product used is customised to your skin’s unique needs, and facial sessions also come with free recommendations on the best products and routines to use at home to keep your skin in peak condition.

It Is A Great Way To Treat Yourself
A day at the spa is one great way to improve your mood and works as a great confidence booster. A little time to pamper yourself is, no doubt, going to uplift your spirit and clear your mind. So it would help if you opted for a facial date once in a while to treat yourself.

Getting a facial is essential to understand how your skin works, reacts to stress and hormones. It would help if you planned facials regularly every four to six weeks as a part of your skincare regimen. A great face lights up the room and gives you more confidence making you comfortable in your skin.
At a spa, you would find your happy place and leave even more relaxed than you came in.
