Facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent pampering, facials have fantastic benefits to the health and wellbeing of the skin, both in the short and long term. We lead busy lives, with regular visits to the dentist, hair salon, opticians and gym, but we should in fact be factoring in the same amount of time to focus on our skin – even if it’s just when the seasons change, and your skin is at its most vulnerable.
Here are six reasons why you should be having regular facials Chelmsford to indulge and treat yourself and your skin!
Get the most out of your skincare
Clogged pores and a red complexion can work against the very best efforts to take care of your skin. The highest quality creams and serums won’t even be as effective if your skin is suffering from excessive dryness or uneven tones. Facials can help to maintain smooth skin and refine pores and will ensure your skincare will absorb properly and do what it is meant to do.
Seasonal skin changes
Our skin is very much like nature – it changes with the seasons and has different needs based on the temperature, humidity level and hours of sunlight. There are different types of facials and some are better suited for different seasons. A super hydrating facial in the winter for example will restore lost moisture, whilst a summer facial will work to calm sun-damaged skin. Having a facial in the spring will invigorate and nourish dull post-winter skin, and an autumn facial will help to prep your complexion for the cold months ahead.
Masks and peels for a healthy complexion
It’s good to use masks and peels on a fairly regular basis to achieve a healthy-looking complexion. During a facial, your skin will be steamed to open pores, extracted and then prepared for a mask or two. Depending on your skin’s needs, the mask’s purpose may be to calm, hydrate or decongest the skin.
No matter your skin type, we all need to use a cleanser that digs a little deeper; we could all afford to clean our skin for longer or cleanse it more effectively. A deep-cleansing facial helps to make up for our lazy ways by removing dirt and oil build-up without drying out the skin. Cleansing properly means pores will be refined and your complexion will look and feel rejuvenated.
Life is busy for all of us, especially when it comes to balancing our home, work and social lives. Most of us don’t take enough time out for ourselves to do something that will alleviate stress and help us regain balance and control. Spending an hour in a peaceful, relaxing environment once a month, or even more, can help to restore balance to the mind and skin. Besides, who doesn’t love a little bit of TLC?
If a facial is done right, it can give your skin immediate results. If you have a big event coming up and your complexion needs a boost of radiance or its youthful glow restored, then a facial can provide just what your skin needs. Facials that contain collagen masks or hyaluronic acid treatments provide instant plumping results, so that’s a great one to go for!
