A refreshing facial session at the spa is always quite rewarding and relaxing. One of the main highlights in most resorts is the spa, and for good reason! Anyone would love to take a break from their professional and personal lives to feel relaxed and forget all of their worries.
In the spa-goers defence, DIY facials could be done at home with simple ingredients, but nothing beats the effectiveness of a professional facial treatment.
No matter what your age or gender is, your skin needs nourishment. And with healthy and pampered skin, you are bound to look youthful and fresh. In this article, we will tell you about everything good that comes out of a professional facial experience.
1. Cleanse and exfoliate
Your skin goes through a lot of distress day in and day out. Sunburns, pollution, oil, you name it. You could be a guru in skincare using all the cleansers, toners, and sunscreen, but it still might not be enough to truly detoxify and nourish your skin.
Most facials have several steps where different face masks and products are applied to tackle each issue. You can get a deep cleanse and clear out all the residue, blocked pores, oil, and toxins. This step allows your skin to easily absorb the vitamins and retinoids provided via nourishing facials and skincare.
With the use of appropriate scrubs or exfoliators, you can also gently get rid of all the dead skin cells.
If you find yourself outside the house quite often, you're often exposed to smoke, dirt, and other impurities that can take a toll on your skin in the long run. These toxic substances are usually stubborn and cannot be eliminated using your average daily cleanser. These impurities might find a way out of your skin in the form of pimples, blackheads, and dark spots. And the last thing someone wants to see in their mirror on a nice morning is an annoying pimple.
A facial can help detoxify your skin, making you feel toxin-free and fresher than ever.
Facials are offered in many forms, and they target varying skin battles across different skin types. Some examples of issues to tackle include dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, and acne-prone skin.
If your skin-related battles are aging, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots, then an age-defying facial can help.
There is a protein called collagen that is present in our skin, bones, and connective tissues that does the job of holding everything together. It keeps our skin firm and tight. Unfortunately for us, the production of said protein declines with age and other factors. As a result, most anti-aging products contain collagen supplements in order to help repair and strengthen these cells.
If these facials are adopted early, before the onset of aging, the process can be slowed down.
4. Smoother, even-toned skin
Uneven skin, pigmentation, and dark spots are common skin problems many women face. Regular facials and care can help tone your skin and get rid of this harmless skin condition.
Facials also use products to hydrate and moisturize your pores, resulting in smooth skin and eliminating dryness and oiliness. The sebum production on your skin will decrease, in turn reducing the chances of acne or pimples.
5. Stress buster and mood booster
This can be quite an obvious one because getting a gentle face massage by a professional is always a therapeutic experience.
An article published by biomedical research in Tokyo, Japan claims that facial massages can reduce anxiety and elevate your mood. The study was conducted on 32 healthy women who showed signs of sympathetic nervous activity and positive moods after a good facial.
Facials can calm your nerves and relieve muscle tension, making you feel good. You might even sleep better the night after a facial!
6. Improved blood circulation
With a good facial massage, the blood flow in your face is significantly improved. That means your cells are going to get all the oxygen and nourishment they need. With healthy blood flow comes healthy cells, which in turn result in a glowing face. As you can see, the benefits of a facial are clearly not restricted to just your outer health and appearance!
While it is possible for you to have a facial at home with the help of a few YouTube tutorials, you have to admit that a professional will do you way better. You are better off trusting an aesthetician who knows what they are doing. At a salon, you can't miss out on the steam treatment, extractions, and gentle massages.
At Pink Is In Salon, you can choose from many combos and specialized facials, including the Lotus Pearl range and the Shahnaz range. You can also go all natural with the Haldi-Chandan (turmeric-sandalwood) and fruit facial. Book your appointment now and feel the difference!
