How do you keep your skin looking young, fresh and clean? Skin needs to produce new healthy layers to replace the old ones. Facials promote new skin layers to generate!

facials promote new skin


Facials are often viewed as a luxury item, a way to relax. Well, that may be true, but as you age your skin, like the rest of you, has more difficulty recovering. In order for your skin to recover it needs to produce new skin cells. Facials promote new skin cell production by stimulating the epidermis (skin) in different ways to tell it to get to work!

The Non-Professional View:

You want to look younger, but you’ve done so much damage over the years. Sun exposure, smoking, drinking, pollution, stress, even laughing.  These all have caused your skin to look aged, maybe beyond your years.  I can say, every time I look in the mirror, I think “Youth is wasted on the young.”

So what I’m saying is this:  The research shows, facials promote new skin generation which will help counteract the years of negative impact from life. Oh, and of course it is relaxing, so that’s a plus.  🙂 

The Professional View:

There are several benefits of facial treatments to promote new skin production and regeneration. 

Deep-Cleansing:  Remove toxins, grease and dirt. It also reduces an overabundance of sebum (which is a natural substance moisturizes and lubricates the skin which may cause acne problems.) Deep-cleansing facials also open the pores of the skin, remove dead skin and toxins from the face, and clean the surface of the skin through exfoliation. Each of these benefits will promote new skin production.

Increase Circulation:  As you know, circulation is important for any organ, muscle or body function to work properly. Your skin is an organ. Facials increase the circulation to your facial skin. This is often why your skin turns red after a facial. You have more blood flow. This is good! The skin on your face is receiving the extra circulation of blood it needs to produce new, fresh, vibrant skin to allow you to look younger or maybe even just your age.   

Relaxation:  A facial is literally a massage for your face. Remember how good it feels for someone to massage your shoulders or your feet. Imagine how much muscular stress you put your face through every day. Even if a facial only relaxes that little stress crease in between your eyebrows it’s worth it.
