5 Reasons to Add a Monthly Facial to Your Skin Care Regimen

By: Mandy Reinhold Ederer, Estheticianfacials

1. Decreases Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Many techniques used during a facial help reduce the signs of premature aging and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion, Fruit Enzyme Peels, Facial Massage, and High Frequency are all very effective techniques. For example, microdermabrasion exfoliates and polishes the skin with fine crystals or a diamond tip wand, which helps remove dead skin around wrinkles, reducing their appearance. Fruit enzyme peels, such as our blueberry and pumpkin peels, tighten and tone the skin to also minimize the appearance of aging with natural fruit extracts.

2. Increases Collagen Production

Collagen is a protein in the skin that gives it strength and resilience. It is what tightens and firms our skin and allows it to maintain its elasticity. As our skin ages, it loses the ability to produce collagen naturally, resulting in wrinkles and saggy skin.  Both Microdermabrasion and Fruit Enzyme Peels help stimulate collagen production in the skin, returning the skin to a more youthful appearance!

3. Exfoliates the Skin

As we age, our skin cells do not turn over as quickly as they used to, so we have to give them a little help.  Microdermabrasion and our Skin Fitness Fruit Enzyme Peels remove those sluggish dead skin cells, leaving behind the new bright, smooth skin underneath. The scrubs used in our facials, such as the Cranberry Purifying Scrub, also detoxifies and gently exfoliates the skin using organic zeolites and jojoba beads, revealing glowing and radiant skin beneath.

4. Improves Skin Tone

Both Microdermabrasion and our Fruit Enzyme Peels diminish the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and acne scars, as well as minimizes pore size and blackheads. Vitamin C is a natural skin lightener, and we can use a Vitamin C Peel in the facial. We also have products available to maintain your skin regimen after your facial, such as the a 20% Vital C serum, Cell-Tex Cream, and our Pigment Lightener Gel.

5. Reduces Stress & Rejuvenates the Mind & Body

Not only will your skin feel amazing and look radiant after your facial, you will be completely relaxed.  Our facials include a relaxing facial, neck, décolleté and hand & arm massage. The aromatherapy of our natural skin care products help calm the mind as well as improve your skin. Stress is a major cause of skin issues and can result in problems such as premature aging and acne. Reducing stress is always an important factor to consider in maintaining healthy skin, as well as improving your overall well-being!

The beauty of starting a new skin care regimen is this…it is better late than never.  It sounds totally cliché, but it’s true — If you feel like you shouldn’t get monthly facials because it feels like a luxury, please think again.  It can be hard to keep up with the day to day stresses that life throws at us, but this practice once a month can make a world of difference — not just for your skin, but for your overall mental and physical well being.  Your skin will be smoother and brighter, and you will also have most of your upper body massaged, leaving you a lighter & more rejuvenated person.  Allowing yourself that time once a month to forget about the outside world is such an important practice.
