Facials are skin treatments for the face that maintain and improve the quality of the skin. Facials, usually performed by trained estheticians, tend to include an analysis of the skin, followed by a series of cleansing methods of the skin, exfoliation, a series of face massage, steam and a cream and a moisturizer.
A facial deeply cleanses and maintains the skin by exfoliating dead skin cells ultimately leading to a smooth, clear and well-hydrated skin. While facials have a variety of benefits for the skin appearance on the face, there are also many health benefits as well. A facial is more than what is being seen by the eye. Facials regulate the body immune system, aid in detoxification, reduce the amount of fluid that has built up in the body. Facials also aid in stress relief when it includes aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage, exfoliation treatments and acupuncture. It also helps in the release of the toxin that has been built in the body.
Keeping in mind the various health benefits of facials, one should go for the facial treatments once every month or at least once every six weeks. This is how long it takes to regenerate new skin cells. However, one should have facials a minimum of four times in a year to fit with the different seasonal variations.
