Contrary to popular belief, facials are more than a pampering indulgence for special occasions – they are actually good for your health, too! Here are 5 reasons why you should have a facial:

  1. Exfoliation: During a facial, the top layers of the skin are removed, so that the newer, younger cells may reach the surface. As we age, this naturally-occurring "sloughing off” process becomes slower and slower. Monthly facials and a weekly routine of exfoliation can keep the skin clean and smooth. 
  2. Fights aging: A regular facial will also increase circulation and stimulate your facial muscles and strengthen the skin’s tone, making it more resistant to sagging and wrinkling. Discolorations fade and often disappear and the skin looks and acts like younger skin.  
  3. Detoxification: The face is always subject to the elements such as the sun and pollution. Pollutants rests on the skin, not only clogging pores, but also being absorbed into the skin's cells. These toxins are going directly through the skin into our bloodstream. Facials help to remove these toxins from your skin.
  4. Education: Most people are using the wrong products for their skin type, which causes the skin to become sensitized. During a facial, an esthetician will help you understand the proper skin care products for your skin and choose the ingredients to help your skin type maintain the proper PH balance. A good home care regime should be both easy to use and work with your individual skin type.
  5. Relaxation: Finally, a facial will relax you. Most facials include a neck, shoulder, arm, and hand massage as well. Between the facial, massage, and serene environment of the spa, you should feel your stress melting away by the end of your appointment.

So, now that you know the many health benefits of facials, it’s time to block off a little “me time” on your schedule. Still unsure if facials are for you? Stop by Falling Waters Spa and we’d be happy to answer your questions.
