The Importance of Facials

By April 29, 2020 Anti-Aging Gracefully, Facials For Beginners, For the Men, Home, My Beauty Tips, Pre-Bridal

Why Should I get a Facial?

For as far back as I can remember, I have been curious about the skin.  I would always wonder WHY I would break out on my back, of all places, and not my face, as much.  A good thing, right?  But that wasn’t enough for me.  I had to investigate further and find out why my back was so prone to breakouts. 

It wasn’t long until after a few years and I was in my thirties when the breakouts started to appear on my FACE!  Now, I was really concerned… So, I decided to seek help from a professional.  I went to get a facial.

I didn’t just get a facial, but the whole works.  I went all out… I got a sugar scrub on my body, a deep tissue massage, and finally a nice relaxing facial. 

The Esthetician was so thorough, she examined my skin (skin assessment), told me my Skin Type (Dry), and began to explain why I was breaking out in my Thirties.  She said I was suffering from Adult Acne, but I had a mild case.  This was due to my hormone changes, and from me using the wrong products for my skin type.  Who knew back then!

Now, as an Esthetician and Makeup Artist, I cannot stress enough, about getting a facial.  They can be a little intimidating at first, but once you understand the process, and experience the treatment, you won’t be able to get them enough.

Here are a few reasons I feel it’s important:

  1. When you get a facial you are getting a massage on the face.  This aids in lymphatic drainage and helps with circulation.  It will also help tighten some facial muscles. This is also very relaxing, which can help with stress.
  2. It removes impurities that get embedded in the pores, that can clog and cause inflamed and irritated pimples, or pore congestion.  You know, the blackheads, white heads, and huge pimples, that you DO NOT want on your face.
  3. You get a customized treatment for you, with a Mask that will restore and nourish your skin, giving you that Hollywood glow.
  4. Who doesn’t like to be pampered!  This will be YOUR time to relax.  Some of my clients go to sleep… this is allowed. 😉

So what are you waiting for get that facial ASAP..

Facials for Beginners

What you should look for in choosing a facial Spa

I’m a professional Skin care specialist and I have facials often.  It’s important to maintain appointments to keep your skin looking and functioning at its absolute best.

In choosing my Spa, I look for these key elements:

  • Cleanliness– You would assume that a facial Spa would be CLEAN, but rest assure some may not be as clean as they appear. Make sure utensils are sterilized with the UV machines and hands are cleansed or gloves are worn during extractions.
  • Certifications– Also look around the Spa for the Certifications of the person performing your Facial. There should be a photo with the license of that individual.  No license.. No Facial!!  This is very important because a licensed Professional has to undertake, many hours mandated by the State, and pass a State regulated exam.
  • The ambiance– I like when the facial spa has an inviting and warm atmosphere. The room is at a comfortable temp and a sensuous aroma is filling the air.  With these combinations, I know my facial will be sweet and relaxing.
  • Lastly, I also like personal attention. I like feeling special when I get a facial… The gentle massage, the enriching treatments… That’s just ME.

What about you?

Have YOU been thinking about a facial lately?  No time like the present. Take some time out of that busy day and get that natural glow….so you can cut down on the makeup and let your Beauty shine through.
