Did you know? It takes around 30 days for your skin cells to go through a full life cycle. Technically, you could say that you get a new face every four weeks – how great does that sound?
In the 30 days of your skin cells’ life, you probably put them through a lot. Make-up, environmental toxins and chemicals, dirt and pollution can all build up on your skin if you’re not careful, leading to dull looking skin, clogged pores and more.
Investing in skin care, which includes a professional facial every month to keep your skin in tip top condition, is one thing you can do to look after your new skin cells throughout their life cycle and keep your skin looking fresh, vibrant and clean.
Why do you need a monthly facial?
Getting a facial has some amazing benefits for your skin that you might not even have thought of. This is why women who DO can look so glowing and radiant (without Photoshop)!
The massage which is always involved in a good quality professional facial will give the blood circulation in your face a boost, turbo-charging your skin cell renewal and giving your skin a lovely oxygenated glow.
Get rid of that built up dirt and oil with a professional facial…an esthetician has the tools and the products to really give your pores a deep clean.
A regular facial can give you better results than any over the counter beauty products could. If you have a problem with blackheads or blocked pores, they can extract them for you and leave your skin clean and refreshed.
We all know that we should exfoliate our skin regularly but how often do we honestly do this at home, and how much time do we spend on it? Giving the job to a professional, using products picked just for our skin’s needs means we get a deep cleanse and exfoliation which can smooth the skin, improve hydration and even out skin tone.
Stay looking younger! Massage and exfoliation work together to help reduce the visible signs of aging like fine lines and age spots. Professional skincare products containing antioxidants can help to improve your skin’s condition, leaving skin looking healthier, smoother and more radiant.
In between facial skin care fixes
Although it would be nice to have spa facials three times a week, in reality most of us don’t have that luxury. There are things you can do at home to prolong the benefits of your facial, support your skin and make sure that you’re getting the best return on your skin investment.
Cleanse daily with a PH balanced product that your aesthetician recommends.
Be gentle on your face and don’t be too vigorous – your aesthetician has already given you a deep clean.
If you have had a chemical treatment on your face, your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight so check with your practitioner which products to use or avoid.
What are you waiting for – get your skincare routine in place and your facial booked for your next new face!
