10 reasons to have monthly facials!

Your skin is always on display and often has the power to dictate how good we feel about ourselves.

Investing in proper skincare has a value that can be arguably more important than buying a new dress or going out to a fancy restaurant or even taking an expensive holiday (a facial is a mini-holiday).

Facials are ideal once a month unless you have a specific skin concern you are trying to overcome (acne, hyper-pigmentation, etc), then you may need a series of treatments.

The reason behind getting monthly facials is that your stratum corneum (the outermost layer of visible skin) will completely renew itself approximately every 28 days. In this time your skin cells are constantly being replicated from the treated cells to replace the old cells. If you give your skin a head start (i.e. a great facial) your skin cells will begin to replicate the now healthier cells and thus give you a better complexion.

Also, most skin products can take up to 6-8 weeks to start to treat active skin cells, but by speeding up the renewal process with a facial you can make these products work faster and more effectively.

Aside from just feeling like heaven, here are 10 reasons to have monthly facials:

  1. Facials allow you to relax. They feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products can heal. It's stress relief and beautiful glowing skin all in one go.

  2. Facials increase blood circulation which draws away old waste-filled blood and draws in fresh oxygenated blood creating the optimal conditions to produce new healthy skin cells.
