Facials

 

Facials Santa Barbara

People get facials for different reasons: some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20s to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered.

These are all fine reasons to get facials. But often the facial itself is a bit mysterious. What does the steam do?

Why do they keep putting creams on and taking them off? Why get facials regularly?

A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion and can help your skin look younger. You also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

But the increased interest in luscious lashes has also given rise to a market for unlicensed eyelash aestheticians, who can end up damaging real lashes — the number one concern for prospective clients. “We will have girls who go to a nail salon, or somewhere that’s not as experienced, before coming in to our studio,” says Haylee Harrison, a lash technician and co-owner of Treat Yourself Studios in Los Angeles, about encountering clients with misconceptions about the process. “But if they are done properly and well taken care of, [the natural lashes] won’t be damaged at all.”  Combine your facial with eyelash extensions and body waxing to get a complete new look and feel.

Professional Facial Benefits

Exfoliation

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it is constantly regenerating. But as your body sheds dead skin cells and produces new ones, the dead cells tend to sit on the surface. This can cause clogged pores and other issues. A facial can remove these cells and leave you feeling refreshed.

Blemish Control

Facials can reduce the appearance of acne and acne scars, leaving your skin with a smoother appearance. If this is your main concern, be sure to tell your facialist. This way, they can curate a treatment for your skin.

Stress Relief

As with massages and other spa treatments, facials are simply relaxing. You get to lean back and let your mind drift as someone else pampers you. And then you can carry this feeling with you as you walk out the door.

Anti-Aging

By taking care of your skin, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and other signs of aging. Specific facials can introduce essential nutrients into your skin to keep it feeling young and hydrated.

Facial Circulation

When your skin is experiencing proper blood flow, you look more awake and healthy. A facial can stimulate the blood vessels under your skin, creating this glow. By scheduling regular facials, you can sustain this blood flow.
