4 Magical Factors of Facials
We already know facials are great for your face. They nourish, cleanse, hydrate, and exfoliate your skin leaving you looking revived and refreshed. But did you know the benefits are beyond skin deep? It’s true, just as massages offer both physical and emotional benefits, so do facials.
There are four aspects to a facial that impact your body, from head to toe… literally!
- The facial
- The massage
- The environment
- The self-care factor
Let’s break these down so that we can understand what these 4 magical factors of facials do for you.
The Facial Factor
There are many types of facials and each has a different focus, but all on have one common goal: to cleanse your skin. Some facials focus of deep cleaning, some on moisturizing and some on relieving tension and stress (both of which can cause breakouts). Whether you’re looking to get to the root of an acne issue or merely enjoy the pampering and relaxation, talk to the spa’s aesthetician to find the facial treatment that is right for you.
The Massage Factor
Massages help to improve and restore the body which is what makes them sooooo relaxing! This rule holds true for facial massage as well, which are a part of most facial treatments. The massage factor is key for reaping the full benefits of a facial. In fact according to the famed facialists, Georgia Louise, a facial massage is the way to get a natural face-lift.
How’s that? By circulating the layers of skin, oxygen flow is increased. This rush of blood plumps skin cells with vital nutrients and creates new skin cells giving your skin a healthy glow. Combine this method with proper hydration and you’ll be on your way to a healthy and glowing appearance.
The Environment Factor
Lying flat on your back, turning your phone off and being in the moment isn’t easy, yet it’s essential to emotional well-being. When you book a treatment you’re setting yourself up for time to be in an environment that promotes peace of mind. Now add the soothing scent of a spa, delicate music and a bit of pampering to that setting and voilà… you’re halfway to reaping the benefits of booking your facial already!
The Self-care Factor
Doing something proactive to take care of yourself is one of those things that often gets pushed to the bottom of to-do list, not to mention the many excuses we come up with to procrastinate self-care. But deep down we know it’s something that we should do, and the time to do it is now. Once you’re booked the self-care factor will already start — by looking forward to fresher looking skin and a relaxed state of mind. Contact us today to schedule a facial.
