A good daily skin care routine is essential for maintaining healthy looking skin, but you should also be getting a facial, performed by a professional, to keep skin looking its best. More precisely, you should really be getting them once a month or every 6 weeks for maximum skincare and maintenance. By making it a regular habit you are investing in you.
A facial is a multi-step, multi-purpose skin treatment including steam, face masks, exfoliation, cleansing, a face massage and a variety of creams and lotions. There are many types of facial treatments and choosing the one you need depends on your skin type and skin issues. Some are highly moisturizing, others are firming and restoring, while some focus on problem areas and certain skin conditions
A FEW benefits include:
Deeply Cleans and Exfoliate Skin (in one shot)
Minimizes and Prevents Aging
Boosts cell regeneration
Detoifys your skin

They hooked me from the moment I saw their post about Hydrojelly Masks. It’s a peel off that’s infused with electrolytes and made primarily from algae. The mask works to create a seal that pushes the nutrients back into your skin and helps all the previous steps of the facial work more effectively. A perfect add on to a traditional facial.

Good circulation is important in that it brings oxygen, proteins and nutrition to the skin, while ridding our skin of toxins.
