No matter how good your skin care routine is at home, you will still enjoy the benefits of going to a professional. Because I do not have any skin issues that require me to go to my dermatologist often, I instead turn to skin care therapists for regular facials. Thanks to the expertise and experience of the therapists at my favorite facial clinic in Doncaster, I am very satisfied with how my face feels and looks.
In fact, I have made it a part of my monthly ritual to come by. This means that my skin gets checked by experts regularly and they remove the dirt as well as the oil that has accumulated in the pores. In the end, the skin gets massaged and deeply moisturized. These procedures do much more than just keep my face clean; it has also made me look much younger.
Here are some benefits of frequent facial treatments I can attest to.
1. Understanding My Skin And Its Changes
Just like me, very few people have knowledge of their own skin. The skin undergoes a lot of changes, partly due to the season and the weather. Your expert facial technician will know how to tailor-fit a solution to your problem. This means, during the drier days in winter, you can expect a hydrating facial to prevent your face and skin from becoming too dry and older-looking.
2. Deep-cleaning The Pores
Making sure that you clean deep down into the pores is no easy task, even if you have a rigorous skincare routine. This is one of the most obvious reasons why facial treatments are beneficial, as the aesthetician can remove any blackheads on the skin. Dirt-free pores also lead to beautiful and glowing skin and fewer breakouts.
3. Being Massaged
A massage is always relaxing and it is the same case when you get a massage during your facial. The expert hands feel great on your shoulders, neck, and face, making you feel (and look) renewed after a long day or week at work. This is clearly the best part of the day for me.
4. Personalized Care
Skin care is not as simple and clear-cut, because different people have different types of skin. It might also have other needs depending on the weather conditions. My best takeaway from facial treatment is understanding my own skin. This is because the aesthetician will take time to study your skin under a super magnifier and/or intense light. Having this knowledge can also help you pick the best skin care products that are sure to work. For example, very dry winter skin still needs proper hydration.
5. Quick Results
Facials have a really instantaneous result, like a switch has been turned on, on your face. While some people tend to be a little bit red after their first time, most people just look like they are glowing. If you are, however, planning a facial before going to an event, then you should not have it done on the same day. Otherwise, you just need to try out other brands with different ingredients so you can figure out what is good for your sin.
What To Expect Before Your Appointment
A facial is not a permanent solution nor is it meant to solve other skin issues. The main purpose is to thoroughly clean the face and the pores and to apply creams that will moisturize your face.
Your first visit will give you a chance to ask important skin questions to find out whether your regular regimen and home products are effective. During my first appointment, I learned so much about my biggest organ, the skin, and how well my skincare routine was at maintaining my face.
It is certainly important for me to maintain my smooth skin, which is why I invested in pricier but better quality facials. This is not in vain because my face and my skin are happy and glowing, thanks to the gentle love and care of my aesthetician.
