Anti-aging

Facials are not a miracle in an hour but they do give you a fresh start to a healthier and balanced complexion. Regular facials will help you maintain optimal skin health.

How often should I get facials?

It varies from person to person. Ideally, get a facial monthly to stimulate your skin’s cellular turnover and assist with exfoliation. At the minimum, have a facial four times a year ideally with the season changes.

The reason behind getting monthly facials is that your outermost layer of visible skin will completely renew itself approximately every 30 days.  Most skin products can take up to 6-8 weeks to start to treat active skin cells, but by speeding up the renewal process with regular facial you can make these products work faster and more effectively.

Besides relaxation what are some benefits of the facial massage?

Facial massaging is a natural facelift by stimulating the facial muscles.  Gentle facial massage increases circulation and blood flow to the face which helps to soften lines around the mouth, eyes and brows which is a natural form of anti-aging skin care.  More blood flow to the area increases collagen production which plumps the skin and gives a healthy and natural glow to the complexion.

 

Why is exfoliation important step in anti-aging skin care?

Exfoliation is perhaps the easiest method to rapidly restore a youthful appearance to the skin. As skin matures, it becomes drab, dull and lifeless.  Excessive build-up of dead skin cells and a hormonally driven loss of skin moisture prematurely ages one’s face. Years of sun damage creates an uneven, blotchy skin tone.  Exfoliation revitalizes and restores vibrancy and evens tone and texture. Within days, skin looks healthier and more youthful.  Microdermabrasion is a successful approach to professional exfoliation.  Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a great homecare exfoliant. 

 

What are the top five reasons everyone should wear sunscreen?

  1. Skin cancer rates are on the rise and sunscreen usage has been proven to decrease the risks of skin cancer.
  2. The ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding from harmful rays.
  3. Sunscreen usage helps to prevent brown spots and skin discolorations.
  4. Sunscreen usage reduces sunburns; sunburns can lead to long term skin damage.
  5. Sunscreen usage slows down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin.
