I have been thinking lately about facials....mostly about how much I like them...well more like adore them. What is a facial? Well, that is a very simple question a facial cleans, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin. Why should we do them? I get asked that question a lot. The true answer is....many reasons. Here are just a few:
1. Treatment for problematic skin, acne, sun damage, inflammation, etc.
2. Anti- Aging....yup...I hit it didn't I, start to repair what we may have not been to smart about when we were younger.
3. Take yourself into your parasympathic state...this is a component of our nervous system, when we get into this state, our body has a chance to heal and recharge. When we are in this state, it feels like a light peaceful sleep, which in most of our daily lives, we rarely experience. When we get into this state, our immune system has a chance to recharge, and in the end that helps our skin. Our skin is the largest organ in/on our body, and when our immune system is down it shows on the skin, thorugh inflammation, break outs, and sometimes sallow skin. A great place to look would be under your eyes..do you have dark circles...that is a sign that the immune system could be taxed.
4. Pamper yourself...there is massage in a facial. Not only do we work your face, but we work the hands and the feet too. The lymphatic massage to the face will increase your circulation which in the end brings you brighter skin, and it also reduces swelling and inflammation...so those bags and dark circles under the eyes..yup we can help those out!
Have you ever had a facial? This could be the time for you to try it, see how it feels...you may just find it is the perfect way for you to rejuvenate and prepare for summer!
