A facial is like massage therapy for your face. Who wouldn’t enjoy having their face gently exfoliated, cleansed, massaged and moisturized?! Whether you’ve never experienced a luxurious facial spa service before or have only gotten one to celebrate a special occasion (who doesn’t love a facial gift certificate for their birthday?!), facials should be part of your regular self-care and beauty routine.
While everyone’s facial service needs and skin type varies, our recommendation is to get a facial once a month for glowing skin all year round.
Your skin’s life cycle is 28 days on average, hence the recommendation to get a facial once a month. After three or four weeks, your skin cells rejuvenate and start to surface. It’s important to note that everyone’s skin is unique and requires different amounts of TLC and recommended products to achieve an optimal glow. How well you keep up with your at-home skincare routine and your skin type directly impacts the frequency of your facial needs. Oily and acne-prone skin benefits from facials more frequently, while sensitive skin might only need facials closer to every two months. If it’s difficult for you to receive the number of recommended facials annually, aim to minimally schedule a facial for each season. Warmer seasons can lead to more acne and colder weather can leave your skin very dry. Scheduling a facial for each season will help your skin combat pesky weather changes.
But Who Should Get Facials?
In a nutshell, everyone should get facials! Regular facials are not only indulgently relaxing, but also can help with healing acne, clogged pores, hyperpigmentation, dullness, puffiness and more. To start, an esthetician will deep clean your skin, followed by toning, exfoliation, extraction and then completed with a relaxing facial massage. These steps are altered and products are tailored to treat your specific skin needs.
While facials are enjoyed by people of all ages, generally speaking, the older you are, the more facials your skin could benefit from. Teenagers and people in their low-twenties have naturally resilient skin. As long as they regularly wash their face and follow a quality at-home skin regimen, facials are not needed as regularly as someone a bit older. Monthly facials are highly recommended for anyone 30 years old and above. When your face ages, it becomes more susceptible to dirt, grime and environmental toxin build-up. Part of a facial service is exfoliation, where dead skin cells are removed to reveal smoother and brighter skin. Monthly facials help to remove harmful build-up and combat signs of aging.
