More and more people are getting facial treatments as part of their regular beauty and skin rejuvenation regimen. And if you think that it is clearly a girl thing, there has been a growing trend of men seeking facial treatment for themselves. No longer are facials an exclusive womanly affair, it has transcended gender boundaries that everyone now benefits from a well-conceived facial skin rejuvenation plan.
But how does facial treatment work its magic that even stone-faced men of the biker gang type have begun flocking towards spas and other health and wellness clinics for that life-changing facial? Here are some of the well-known benefits of facial treatments.
1. Cleanses the Skin
The skin of the face is one of the dirtiest parts of the body. It is one of a few parts of the body that is constantly exposed to dust and dirt including pollution and toxic chemicals. Not to mention the makeup and other chemicals that women put on their faces can all create a chemical and biological hodge-podge that can only be rivaled by the muddy terrain of a rain-drenched Amazon forest basin. Facial treatments effectively remove these dirt and dust so the skin can breathe again.
2. Moisturizes the Skin
The human skin is very susceptible to dehydration especially if you are going to stay under the sun without adequate protection. Sometimes, even if you were in the shade, other forms of heat transfers can effectively draw out moisture from the skin’s cells leading to dehydration. This leads to the appearance of fine lines and even wrinkles. Getting a facial treatment replenishes the moisture lost in the everyday grind while at the same time locking in the moisture inside the different cells of the skin.
3. Improves Superficial Circulation
Did you know that underneath the skin is a network of very small blood vessels that serve to bring much needed nutrients and oxygen to the different cells of the skin? Also part of this network of blood vessels are lymphatic organs that serve to move toxins away from the skin and for elimination through the body’s excretory organs namely the kidneys and the digestive tract. The massaging motion involved in many facial spa treatment regimens are known to improve the circulation of both blood and lymph thereby aiding in the maintenance of healthier cells and tissues.
4. Reverses Many of the Visible Signs of Aging
Many spa treatments utilize a variety of essential oils that are largely known to have antioxidant properties. One of the most sought after skin rejuvenation treatments, Retinol, is a well-known antioxidant that has been largely attributed for its age-reversal properties. While technically it does not reverse the aging process in a way that you will feel and look young again, it does mitigates the harmful effects of oxidative stress leading to a better functioning cellular and tissue states. These lead to a reduction in some of the visible signs of aging such as age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines.
5. Enhances the Tone and Texture of the Skin
A sagging skin doesn’t necessarily look good especially if you are someone who is largely dependent on the tonicity of your skin to earn a living. That is why there are a lot of individuals who request neuromodulator injections like Botox to help them firm up their skin; albeit often with disastrous consequences. Facial spa treatments exercise the different cells and tissues of the face so they retain their elasticity and their tonicity. This allows them to firm up naturally.
6. Alleviates Skin Sensitivity and Redness
There are certain individuals who have naturally sensitive skin. Sometimes, this is one reason why they don’t want to seek facials simply because they fear that it will only exacerbate their conditions. The good news is that, when done correctly, the facial might as well be the treatment that they are looking for as different mild ingredients can be used to help mitigate skin sensitivity reactions.
7. Reduces Skin Breakouts and Blemishes
Acnes and other inflammatory skin conditions are often attributed to clogged skin pores. Cleansing the face and then toning it up with essential oils can help manage skin breakouts and other dermatological issues. You clearly don’t have to live with acnes all your life. Having it seen by someone who knows how to put the treatment in a facial might as well save you from expensive anti-acne medications.
8. Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Akin to the antioxidant properties of many essential oils used in a variety of facial spa treatments, wouldn’t you be glad to know that not only will you have a fairer and much healthier skin after the facial, you will also feel and look naturally younger as well?
