Throughout history we have been looking in the mirror and finding imperfections in our skin. When we see wrinkles, blemishes or other imperfections we tend to reach for products designed for each individual need. Rarely do these products work, and we simply end up shelling out money hand over fist with no results.
When it comes to results, facials have always been the answer. Facials actually trace back to the era of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt through the Victorian Era. One of Queen Cleopatra’s most famed beauty regimes began with a mask of black asphalt mud from the banks of the Dead Sea. She then used a Dead Sea salt scrub and then finished with a massage composed of essential oils. It worked back then (with limited resources) to keep Cleopatra beautiful; it can definitely work to today o keep your skin healthy and vibrant using physician prescribed medications, medical grade compounds and state of the art technologies.
Facials are as important to the skin as exercise is to the body. Facials help to prevent and treat common skin problems. As the seasons change, the weather affects the skin. You put your best face forward on a daily basis. Your face is typically always uncovered; it’s always subject to the elements. During the dry season, you skin can become dehydrated. In the hotter months, oil can build up, causing blemishes and full blown breakouts. Regular facials help to keep these dramatic changes from doing damage to your face.
The skin continually replenishes itself by sloughing off dead skin cells. However, the renewal process can be slowed down by a number of things, such as toxins in the air, toxins in the bloodstream, dry skin, hormones, etc. Getting a monthly facial can train the system to function more efficiently, and your regeneration process will be stimulated (keeping away premature wrinkles and fine lines).
Other benefits of a monthly facial include fewer breakouts, more even skin tone, and even decreased stress. Facials also help to release the buildup of toxins in the lymphatic system. During a facial, the toxins are released via the lymph nodes. This prompts a rejuvenation of cell turnover; this helps decrease inflammation of the skin and it helps to increase collagen production which, again, can help prevent wrinkles. This also gives you a wonderful glow!
No matter your age, facials are a beneficial part of your health regimen. It is essential to take care of the largest organ of your body (and the one that is always subject to the elements) UV rays, pollution, chemicals and hormones as well as the wrong products can wreak havoc with your face. You can improve or fix the damage with a monthly facial, while also preventing any further damage by having a monthly facial.
