Nowadays, 'life' is busy and hectic. Most of us don't invest the time for ourselves nor skin care goals and concerns. Therefore, spending an hour in a relaxing, peaceful environment can help restore balance to your mind as well as to your skin. Professional monthly facials not only give you a "healthy looking glow" but research has also shown that there are numerous advantages to receiving these.

Monthly scheduled facials stimulate the blood flow to aid in the flow of oxygen and other nutrients to the skin and its underlying tissue. They also assist in the efficient removal of waste products. Facials help aid in the improvement of dull, lifeless and congested skin by maintaining the tone of underlying skin tissues, therefore, slowing down the skin's aging process. A professional-grade facial helps maintain the skin's natural elasticity through refining the texture of the skin. Facials also contribute to cellular regeneration which helps our skin prevent premature aging. Finally, professional-grade facials also aid in the natural protection of one's top layer of skin.

We are getting older each and every day therefore, by getting regular facials, we promote cellular turnover, boost collagen production and maintain a healthy skin balance. Facials performed by an aesthetician provide oneself with an array of benefits. Furthermore, aestheticians are trained to look for and deal with complex skin concerns which can be kept under control through regularly scheduled facials.

Most facials include a certain amount of face, neck, décolletage and shoulder massage. This helps rid the body of toxins and reduces fluid retention. Our bodies naturally flush these toxins out which also helps promote further circulation, thus, leaving our skin glowing and youthful. Facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent pampering. When one considers all of the regular visits you make to a hair salon, gym or dentist, you'll realize why you really should be investing that time on your skin. Professional facials have tremendous short and long-term benefits to the health and wellness of your skin.
