Let’s be real. Facials sound indulgent and is usually treated as if it’s a “true pampering activity” when you want to treat yourself. But did you know facials are actually a really amazing way to care for your redhead skin? Just like we visit the dentist and the doctor, visiting a dermatologist/esthetician regularly can help to keep your skin in a healthy condition.
There are a number of different facials you can get, and a trained esthetician can customize your facial treatment to target skin concerns and give you exactly what your skin needs to be happy and healthy. Facials are great for cleaning out pores, exfoliation, combatting dry skin, and relieving facial tension.
Getting a facial can also help you learn about your skin so you can use the right products at home. Most of us use the products we see recommended online or try random ones from the store. For redheads, finding good skincare can be hard because we typically have more sensitive skin. Speaking with a trained professional can help you learn what your skin really needs so you’re spending your money on products that are actually helping combat your specific skin concerns.
Let’s break down some common questions about facials and how they can help redhead skin:
Why every 6 weeks?
The skin will regenerate itself approximately every 28 days. It’s important to exfoliate and clean out the pores. There are some things you could do at home to help with this process but the real tools to effectively exfoliate your skin are available only to a medical esthetician.
What does a facial do?
Consistent facial care by an esthetician can help prevent future skin care concerns that may appear – from monthly breakouts, to seasonal sensitivities, and even the first signs of aging, like fine lines.
Do facials really help with anti-aging?
Yes! Anti-aging is one of the number one reasons you should receive a facial.
Can facials help with acne?
Regular spa facials may be your perfect solution. A good esthetician will know exactly which facial to perform for your skin type, will help with blemishes and provide you with tools and product recommendations to ease future breakouts.
Does it help with skin that is too dry or too oily?
Facials can deliver immediate, visible results and can kick start your skin to function properly. If your skin is too dry, it can give you intense much-need hydration. If your skin is too oily, you might see more of balance.
There are hundreds of facials available and your skin professional will let you know what is best. Think of getting a facial like getting a massage, it feels great and helps you relax, but it’s also a way to care for your body. This is your sign to book a facial appointment.
Rock it like a Redhead!
