5 reasons you need a facial

Facials offer a variety of benefits to the skin and your overall well-being. We explore five reasons why you need to book a facial.

You don’t need to tell us twice to book a facial! Cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, masking and moisturizing—no matter what facial is on the menu, it’s sure to offer a variety of benefits to your skin and soul.

If you’re still on the fence, here are five reasons you need a facial:

1.   You can experience a deeper clean.

Our faces, well, face pollutants, oil and sweat on the daily—not to mention makeup if you wear it! All of those can contribute to skin issues like congestion and acne. A professional facial will deeply cleanse the skin and unclog pores, removing impurities that are hard to eliminate with your everyday cleanser. It will also open up the skin so products can better penetrate it and work their magic!

2.   A personalized approach will pay off.

Everyone’s skin is different. The beauty of a facial is it will address your unique skincare needs, whether that’s dryness, aging, acne, etc. Your esthetician will begin each facial by assessing your skin and tailoring the treatment accordingly. Once treated for its own needs and issues, your skin will never be happier!

3.   Think of it as a tune-up for your skin.

Building off #2, a facial will provide what your skin needs, tackling dull skin and removing build-up along the way. Facial massage stimulates blood circulation, bringing essential nutrients and oxygen to the skin, and can also promote collagen production, which minimizes signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.

4.   You’ll have the opportunity to chat with an expert.

Shopping for skincare products can be overwhelming, with thousands of products available, all with different claims. During your facial, our experts will offer insights into your skin, identifying potential issues and recommending suitable products and treatments to help maintain your skin’s health and reach your long-term goals. (And don’t forget to check out our blog post on how to care for your skin after a facial for even more tips!)

5.   Did someone say stress relief?

Not only do facials improve the health and appearance of your skin, but they can also reduce your stress levels! The therapeutic touch of your esthetician’s hands, along with the tranquil atmosphere at our spas, will help you relax, restore and rejuvenate. Bonus: Stress can contribute to some skin issues, so reducing it may improve your skin even more!
