The Best Facials to De-Stress

Benefits of a Facial

Facials do more than just leave you with glowing, soft and clean skin, they are a great way to decompress, unwind and focus on your mental health. A facial appointment is a great opportunity to clear your mind and focus on self-care while giving you time away from your phone and laptop screens. Not only will you leave your facial with refreshed and renewed skin, but you will feel a sense of calm and relaxation come over you. This is especially helpful as you prepare for a busy holiday season.


What to Expect During Your Facial

Facial treatments are good for any type of skin, including oily, dry, or combination skin. Treatments are tailored to the type of skin you have so you get the most benefit out of the facial. They are often performed monthly and can cost up to $100 depending on the type of facial you get.

In preparation for your facial, make sure to not have any makeup or other lotions on your face. When you arrive at your appointment, you will change into a comfortable robe and lay down face up on the table under the blankets. You should feel an overwhelming sense of peace and calm from the ambiance of the room and the light spa music. After discussing your skin type with the dermatologist, they can begin.

First, a dermatologist will put a headband on you to keep your hair out of your face during the treatment. Next, they will cleanse your face of any makeup or creams you may have missed removing to ensure they are working on a clean slate. Then they will begin the exfoliation process. It begins with extractions of blackheads and whiteheads that will help to unclog your pores. Using a tweezer-like instrument, each blackhead and/or whitehead is squeezed. It feels like a pinching sensation, but is not too painful for most patients. After the extraction process, dead skin cells will have been removed resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin. Next, a mask is applied based on your skin type. For oily skin, a clay mask will be applied to help remove excess oils. For dry skin, a hydrating mask is applied to add moisture to the skin. The mask will stay on for up to 15 minutes. Once it is washed off, the facial ends with a combination of toners and moisturizers. After the facial, you will see glowing skin that feels smooth to the touch. You will also feel more relaxed than ever and ready for this upcoming holiday season.
