Facials Aren’t Just For Aesthetics. Here’s 7 Unknown Benefits Of Frequent Facials.

You deserve to wake up, look in the mirror, and see radiant, glowing skin. I mean, we all do, right?!

Your skin could show fatigue or it could reveal a dewy glow with the right facial. Forget harsh chemicals and store-bought skincare. Professional facials pamper your skin— they’re deep cleansing, deeply hydrating, and relaxing. No more wrestling with stubborn blackheads or relying on layers of makeup. 

Facials done by skilled hands remove dullness to reveal your most vibrant complexion.

Facials are beneficial whether you’re battling blemishes, chasing radiant youth, or craving a moment of blissful relaxation.

What’s A Facial?

Facials are a powerful tool in your skincare arsenal that offers benefits for every skin type and concern — from wise, aging skin to acne-prone skin, to hyperpigmentation!

A classic facial begins with a deep double cleanse. It’s followed by an invigorating scrub that whisks away dead skin cells and unclogs pores so your skin can breathe again.

Facial steaming, warm towels, gentle exfoliation, and nourishing masks work in harmony to reveal a smoother, brighter canvas beneath all skin types. Depending on the type of facial, you’ll also receive a facial massage and extractions. 

Estheticians should also apply high-quality skincare before you leave the spa. That way you’re set for the day and won’t need to do your normal skincare routine. 

Seven Benefits Of Facials 

Facials often get mistaken for a purely aesthetic pursuit or a luxurious indulgence. While achieving a radiant glow’s a delightful perk, the magic of facials extends beyond the surface. 

Seven benefits of consistent facials:

1️⃣ Stimulates collagen production 

2️⃣Prevents premature aging

3️⃣Exfoliates dead skin cells

4️⃣Rejuvenates skin texture 

5️⃣Improves circulation 

6️⃣Reduces stress

7️⃣Clears pores 

Facials flush out toxins and impurities that accumulate in your body. Facial massages typically include lymphatic drainage techniques that stimulate circulation and help your body eliminate toxins. 

This internal purge can have a positive impact on your immune system, boosting its ability to fight off invaders and keep you healthy.

Facials Help Reduce Your Stress Levels

In our fast-paced world, stress often appears on our faces — tight muscles, furrowed brows, and a constant undercurrent of tension. 

Facials offer a sanctuary for stress-ridden skin. The soothing touch of an esthetician, essential oils, and a calming atmosphere can work wonders to quiet your mind and relax your body.

The American Institute of Stress says, “Facial tension is usually a sign of physical or emotional stress we are holding. This can result in physical symptoms such as headaches, TMJ problems, and neck stiffness. A well-massaged and relaxed jaw will contribute to the relief of stress-related pain in the face, neck, and even upper back.”

Facials can significantly reduce psychological distress and activate the sympathetic nervous system for a renewed sense of inner peace. 

Find Your Ideal Facial

So many choices, so many ingredients, and so many promises of customized facials! 

How do you find the perfect facial for your skin concerns?

Know your skin! Understanding your skin type is key. Identifying your skin type, along with any existing concerns like acne, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, provides the compass for choosing the right facial.

Here’s the most common skin types:

Normal Skin: Smooth, balanced texture with minimally visible pores. Few to no imperfections, with healthy hydration and glow. 

Dry Skin: Rough, flaky texture that feels tight after cleansing. Visible lines and wrinkles, with dry patches of irritation. May appear dull or lackluster. 

Oily Skin: Shiny and greasy appearance with enlarged noticeable pores. Prone to blackheads or breakouts and may get oily throughout the day. 

Combination Skin: A mixture of oily and dry areas (often T-zone is oily, cheeks are dry). Might experience dryness and breakouts. Requires a targeted approach for different areas. 

Sensitive Skin: Easily reacts to harsh chemicals, sun, and fragrances. Prone to redness, itching, and stinging. May have visible broken capillaries and requires gentle skincare products. 

Find A Qualified Esthetician 

An esthetician’s a trained skincare specialist.

Their trained eye will assess your skin type and concerns during (or before) a facial. They’ll offer personalized recommendations for you and target your unique concerns. Reach out before booking your facial to see what products are used in the treatment room, what you can expect, and aftercare tips. 

We recommend reading reviews, and using your intuition when it’s time to pick the right esthetician for you. 

Lastly, don’t DIY everything just because it’s trending… 

At-home treatments can be wonderful for gentle cleansing, but tackling serious skin concerns often requires the expertise of a professional as improper care can exacerbate skin issues.

How Much Does A Facial Cost?

Facials come in a variety of forms and price points. 

From basic cleansing treatments to luxurious, multi-step facials, it’s essential to choose one that fits your budget. And remember, consistency is key—  so opt for affordable options you can enjoy regularly rather than splurging on a single, high-end treatment.

Facials at Arukah Wellness start at $50 and go up to $150, which’s typical for the industry! Great estheticians pour their hearts into each facial, so don’t forget to show your appreciation with a tip. 

Remember, the holistic benefits of facials are best experienced when paired with a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, a nutrient-dense diet, and adequate sleep lay the foundation for radiant skin.
