There are many benefits of having a facial from a licensed Esthetician. Most importantly, facials promote healthy skin. You may think of a facial as a luxury, but this is not true if you have acne, or oily skin, these skin types require more maintenance as does skin with visible sun damage, you know those pesky brown spots that start to appear in your late 30’s or 40’s if you are lucky. Your skin will be cleansed and then exfoliated with a professional strength enzyme or peel to remove the dead surface cells. After your skin is steamed, your Esthetician will extract blackheads, milia (those annoying white bumps you can’t remove on your own) and pustules or pimples in layman’s terms. If you don’t have acne, you will experience a relaxing massage of the face neck and shoulders which stimulates blood flow to nourish the tissues, then a serum and mask for your skin type will be brushed onto your face and neck. When the mask is removed a toner is applies to rebalance the skin then a moisturizer with sunscreen for daytime or the appropriate moisturizer for night. Your Esthetician will also recommend the best products to use at home to maintain your skin in between facials. It’s all about improving the appearance of your skin and reducing stress.
