The daily tension and stresses of life can cause us to not only feel tired but cause us to look tired as well-especially when it comes to our skin. Every once in a while it’s important to step back from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and treat ourselves to something that calms our nerves and helps us to unwind from the demands of work, family, and other obligations. A rejuvenating facial will calm your anxiety while pampering your skin to make you feel recharged and ready to take on the rest of the day.

There are many types of facial treatments, all with their own benefits. Microdermabrasion treatments, chemical and paraffin peels, photo facials, antioxidant treatment options and much more give you plenty of options when it comes to bringing your mind and your skin back to life.

Not convinced yet? Here are 5 benefits to receiving a facial treatment in your near future. After your first appointment, the results will speak for themselves. For now, let the facts speak instead:

1). Facials cleanse the skin unlike anything you’ve used at home.

You can consider a facial to be similar to a detoxification or a body cleanse, as a facial removes environmental toxins like dirt and pollution from deep within your skin. It diminishes the amount of sebum in your skin, opens your pores, sloughs away dead skin and cleans the surface of it, helping you to look rejuvenated and refreshed.

2). The anti-aging benefits are incredible with a professional facial.

Anti-aging treatments can be incredibly expensive, and they aren’t as natural as a facial is. If you are looking for a method that can combat the signs of aging, consider intense pulsed light, or IPL, laser treatments. This treatment method removes dead skin and increases cell growth and collagen development.

3). Facials improve circulation.

Our bodies need adequate circulation to look and function at their very best, including our skin. Facials help to improve, enhance and restore circulation to the layers of skin on our faces, causing a healthy glow and radiant skin that you don’t need makeup to produce.

4). Surprisingly, a facial can actually ease congestion.

If you suffer from clogged nasal passages, such as from seasonal allergies, a facial can relieve the pressure that causes so much discomfort. The steam in a spa, combined with the massaging of specific points on the sinuses, can lessen pressure and make it easier to breathe. Essential oils can also be used to fight minor congestion, aiding in the effectiveness of the facial to improve the way your sinuses feel.

5). Sometimes, you just need to relax.

A facial is incredibly relaxing, the perfect remedy for melting away the stresses of a busy life. By partaking in a facial treatment every once in a while, you can reduce your stress in both your mind and body. This is essential to creating the healthiest you possible.
