Do I need a facial? 32 reasons you absolutely need one

Do I need a facial? 32 reasons you absolutely need one

Have you ever wondered "do I need a facial?" Chances are, you probably do. Just about every skin concern can benefit from a little TLC at your local spa. Keep reading to see all the reasons you need a spa facial.

1) Prevention

If you're already happy with your skin, why get a facial? The truth is, consistent facial care by an esthetician can help prevent future skin care concerns that may appear – from monthly breakouts, to seasonal sensitivities, and even the first signs of aging, like fine lines. Most skin care experts agree that prevention is a key facial benefit:

"Let's say you're young and have genetically great skin. You don't think you need a facial, but most people don't think about anti-aging until it's too late.

Receiving regular facials is about maintaining healthy skin, just like continuing your exercise program when your body is fit. It's the same thing with your skin. Keeping the skin healthy and fit with regular facials is so much easier than waiting until you are seeing signs of aging – lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and loss of firmness before you begin taking care of your skin with professional treatments." –Teresa Stenzel, Bioelements Director of Education


2) Anti-aging

As we stated above, anti-aging is one of the number one reasons you should receive a facial. Anti-aging facials and skin care should start well before most people think:

"Since the skin chronologically starts slowing down after age 22, and our skin is constantly bombarded with aging atmospheric stressors, it's very important tobegin applying anti-aging skin care products while you are in your early 20's." –Teresa Stenzel

Regardless of when you start, regular anti-aging facials will help keep your skin strong, healthy and more resistant to the toxic effects of intrinsic aging (that's the natural, chronological aging that you can't control). If wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and other age signs start to crop up, anti-aging facials are even more important.



3) Acne

Worried about breakouts? Regular spa facials may be your perfect solution. A good esthetician will know exactly which facial to perform for your skin type, whether you have true acneic skin, or are just prone to the occasional blemish.

Facials for acne can improve existing breakouts, diminish large blemishes, help your skin heal and prevent further breakouts. Your esthetician will know the best way to properly prep your skin and extract clogged pores without causing irritation, damage, or more blemishes.

The number one way to help prevent and heal acne is to combine professional spa facials with the right at-home care.


4) Dry skin

Do you have dry, rough, flaky or "tight" skin? We've all been there (especially in the dead of winter). While finding the right moisturizer for your skin type is a piece of the puzzle, it is only one small aspect of managing dry skin. The most important piece? You guessed it, facials.

Facials for dry skin can deliver immediate, visible results and can kick start your skin to function properly. You can expect to leave the treatment room with skin that is fresh, soft, hydrated, smooth, and glowing.

Even if none of these reasons apply to you, there are still MANY reasons to receive a facial.
