Facials are often thought of as an indulgent luxury, or a special treat while on vacation, but rarely as part of healthy skin maintenance. Over the years, the most recurring question I get when I tell people I am an esthetician is, why should I get facials? So as someone who has seen over and over again with my clients, the transformation from skin issues to a glowing complexion, I wanted to take this opportunity to discuss the benefits of getting professional facials.
If you've shopped for skincare products lately, you may have noticed that facial oils are all the rage. It seems that just about every skin care line out there is launching their own version. Even though this ancient beauty secret has been used for thousands of years, it is making a comeback in the beauty industry, for good reasons. Natural oils from plants and seeds are packed with essential nutrients, fatty acids, and antioxidants that are necessary for healthy skin and a glowing complexion.
Facial oils are beneficial for ALL skin types.
Is it really that important to wash our faces before we go to sleep? If we want to have great skin, the answer is YES! We need to wash off the make-up, dirt, and grime from the day before hitting the hay.
True confession: I used to be really bad at nighttime cleansing. I would fall asleep on the couch and then wake up to go to bed and think of every excuse in the book for not washing my face. Things like, starting tomorrow I will do it every night, or if I wash my face it will wake me up and I won’t be able to fall asleep again, or the best one is, it doesn’t really matter if I don’t wash.
