Best Time of Year for a Facial

Maybe you don’t have the time or the cash to have regular facials. For you, a facial might be just a yearly indulgence. If you are going to do it only once a year, the best time of the year to get a facial is the fall. Although the outdoor cold and indoor dry heat in the winter are dehydrating to the skin, the worst time for your skin is the summer. Considering the time spent in the sun, the exposure to chlorine in pools, and the increased time outdoors (which means more contact with air pollution), summertime can be very damaging to the skin. A fall facial might help to repair some of the damage the summer season has caused. It could unclog your pores, get rid of dead skin cells (remember that sunburn?) and moisturize dry skin — all the better to face the trials of the cooler weather ahead.

10 Reasons to Get a Facial with Me!

#10 Free Skin Analysis! Get a thorough skin analysis, with more time taken to learn about your skin,tools available to look deeper into the layers of your skin, and a longer term treatment plan defined.

#9 Extractions in a Breeze! Clearing clogged comedones keeps skin healthy and supple while preventing acne. It is recommended to extract those comedones once a week in a SAFE, gentle manner. Having a trained professional perform extractions allows a variety of angles and techniques. I also have tools and machines that open pores, hydrate the skin to make it flexible, liquefy impacted material, and protect the surrounding skin while comedones literally slide out.

#8 I LOVE What I Do! I am passionate about your skin and love working with it! I love learning more and putting to use the information I have in making your skin look the best it possibly can!
#7 Not Just For Women! Too many men grow up still washing their face with bar soap and water, wishing their skin was different, yet clueless how to solve it. They still neglect their skin and feel ashamed and embarrassed about their appearance. Facials are not“girly” treatments. EVERYONE deserves to feel comfortable and attractive in their own skin. No one thinks to educate teenage boys how to reduce acne or not to pick. Any age group, any gender, any race will benefit from learning to take care of their skin.

#6 Specialized Products! No skin is exactly the same, and no client has the same goals for their skin. That is why a quality esthetician will meet you, talk with you, learn about you before the procedure so the very best choice of products can be chosen. There is a reason why every good product line has choices and ways to adapt products to individuals and their skin care goals. Your skin receives pampering and ingredients applied just for it!

#5 Massage Isn’t Just For Relaxation! Massage techniques have a variety of purposes. Not only does a massage loosen muscles and lower heart rate and blood pressure (that brings you into a deep state of relaxation!), it can actually heal your skin! Massage stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation and boosts your immune system. It delivers more nutrients to your skin and removes more waste. It can stimulate collagen and elastin to form in the dermis and plump the skin back to healthy levels. It can reactivate the microcurrent impulses in the skin to reduce or prevent sagging skin. Even just a facial massage can work acupuncture meridians to relieve tension, blockages, or imbalances in the entire body. It can even help exfoliate dead skin, loosening acneic debris, or it help drive beneficial, moisturizing ingredients deeper. Massage looks good on you!

#4 Because You Can! Many people are afraid of the expense of ‘extras’ like spa treatments, luckily I’m affordable. Especially in a tough economic situation, taking care of our skin is considered an unnecessary expense. Many product lines found in grocery stores feed off of the fear, selling you quick-fixes that don’t actually fix anything. They use cheap fillers that fill your pores with gunk, and ingredients that dry your skin out, insuring you will be back for more soon! They don’t want you to know facials can be the least expensive items on a spa menu! Truly beneficial product lines do not need fillers, and they will last longer than store bought items. Taking care of your skin may cost a little more up front, but it is less than you think and will cost you less in the long term.

#3 Create A Partner! The things we can do in the treatment room are only half of the success of your skin. The other half is a great home-care regime. It is hard to know exactly what to do at home, by yourself, and be the only one celebrating your success! With an esthetician, you have someone as equally excited and invested in your skin as you are! You will have a plan that we can decide together that fits your life, preferences, and skin perfectly! I want to be your partner in creating  healthy skin for you!

#2 A Spiritual Experience! Facials involve a lot of physical touch, which can initiate a bond between esthetician and pamperee. The positioning of an esthetician at the head of the bed puts the esthetician’s solar plexus chakra in alignment with the clients crown chakra, creating a unique flow of energy between each life force. A great esthetician realizes this exchange and utilizes it to benefit each person they work with. I like to bring peace, love, and sulf-fulfillment to my clients, receiving their worries and returning the energy with feelings of confident and peace. There is no greater reward or benefit to my life than to make a new friend and feel them feeling beautiful, powerful, and calm.

#1 YOU DESERVE IT!!! Seriously, when did you last do something to feel good about yourself? That pair of sensible flats you bought to wear to work everyday does NOT count. Taking care of yourself, or more importantly, FEELING good about yourself is VITAL to your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. You cannot hope to lead a healthy life if you do not take a few minutes to breathe. Let someone else pamper you. Give your brain a chance to catch up to you! The first step to healing the world is to take care of yourself first! Hope to hear from you soon!
