Four Reasons to Get a Facial

Facials are synonymous with self-care, but did you know that routine treatments can also provide important health benefits for your skin? Keep reading to learn four reasons to schedule a facial treatment from the providers experts at SomaSou.

What is a Facial?

A facial is a popular and noninvasive skincare treatment that rids your skin of dead cells and impurities. It’s essential to always schedule a facial with a licensed esthetician who has been properly trained and certified to perform a facial. While every esthetician performs a facial differently, almost all treatments include some form of exfoliation, removing impurities, cleansing, and hydration.

Who should get a Facial?

A facial is an ideal treatment for any adult who wants to remove dead skin and impurities from their face and neck area. Your facial treatment should leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed with lasting results. Make sure that when you show up for your appointment, you do not have any makeup or lotions on your face. You will want to gently cleanse your skin and arrive with a clean face.

What are the benefits of Facials?

Now that you understand how a typical treatment works, here are four reasons why you should schedule routine facials:

  1. Skin Analysis: An expert esthetician will be able to perform a full analysis of your skin during a facial treatment. You should arrive at your appointment with a clean and make-up-free face, so your esthetician will be able to truly see the condition of your skin. Over the course of your facial, your esthetician will be able to analyze your skin type and any areas of concern, while providing custom recommendations for professional treatments or products to try on your skin type.
  2. Remove Dead Skin: One of the biggest benefits of a facial is your esthetician’s ability to remove any dead skin cells or impurities from your face that you otherwise could not scrub away. This allows for your skincare to penetrate deeper into your skin’s layers and target your treatment areas faster. During your facial, you will have exfoliants and other products applied safely to your skin to help clear away impurities. The end result will be smoother and more even-toned skin on your face and neck.
  3. Extraction: If you have any stubborn pimples, blackheads, or clogged pores on your face, a facial will allow your esthetician to extract these in a safe way that will not cause long-term damage to your skin. When you try to extract these clogged pores at home, you can cause damage to the surface of your skin that may result in scarring.
  4. Hydrate: Our skin could always use more hydration, especially when it’s exposed to harmful environmental factors in the air. A facial will include the application of topical creams and hydrating products to have your skin looking and feeling as refreshed as possible.
