Earlier, I sent you an article on facial myths debunked, and I wanted to expand on something mentioned in the article – facials as an occasional luxury,or as treatment for a skin concern. Both are beneficial, and it’s based on your skin needs and how your skin reacts to treatment.
Facials are certainly a wonderful treat, but if you have specific skin conditions or concerns, consider keeping up with a regular facial schedule. When you have conditions such as acne, rosacea, melasma or exzema, you need to train your skin cells in a way that limits their response to external factors. Regular facials – such as every few weeks or once a month depending on how your skin responds – are the only way to treat these types of conditions. In this way, facials become more preventative. They keep your skin healthy and toxin-free, and, when added in with a treatment plan at home, you can get rid of – or greatly reduce – any of these unwanted conditions.
If you don’t have any skin conditions that concern you, an occasional facial can be a way to return a radiance and youthful glow to your skin, and it also rejuvenates your mind and spirit. The massage that accompanies a facial increases blood circulation, soothing the skin and relaxing the muscles in the face, head and neck. Your mood affects your complexion, so the restorative benefits of a facial cannot be overlooked.
In upcoming emails I’ll go more into the treatments I offer and how we choose your treatment based on your skin goals. If you’re ready to make an appointment, please feel free to call or text me at (480) 221-8111. Thank you again. I hope to see you soon!
