Giving Your Skin What it Needs
As a facial and skincare day spa, people ask us all the time what the benefits of a facial are. Every appointment we schedule starts with a personal skin analysis to help people identify exactly which facials and skincare products will be best for their unique skin and needs. Once our professional skincare specialists have assessed your skin, we will make recommendations and customize your facial to fit your needs. Whether you need deep hydration, steam, acne extractions, exfoliation, care for dark spots, attention for fine lines and wrinkles, or any specific attention, we would love to help. We are passionate about helping people love their skin, and we use only the industry’s best researched, most natural, skincare products – from Image Skincare and Eminence Organic Skin Care – to give your skin life and a healthy glow.
Seven Reasons to Get a Winter Facial
Winter air has a way of drying out skin, leaving it raw and red. Even with at-home moisturizers, your skin can still look and feel dry. But, facials offer professional skincare, which penetrates into the layers of your skin, allowing your face to calm down redness and irritation and regain its healthy summer glow. Here are 7 reasons we recommend getting a facial this winter:
1. Deep Hydration
Wind and cold outdoors and heaters pumping indoors mean that everywhere you turn is sucking moisture out of your face. Even if you are drinking enough water, your facial cells need topical hydration. In a facial, your esthetician will treat your face with the best moisturizers and serums for your unique skin, so that, whether you have oily skin or dry skin, your face is appropriately moisturized and happy! This infusion of moisture into your cells will last throughout the month, working in conjunction with the skincare products you use at home (which your esthetician can help you select, if you need), calming down dryness, flakyness, redness, and any of your skin’s other winter woes.
2. Professional Grade Exfoliation
Most facials include some level of exfoliation – from enzymes to acids to microdermabrasion to HydraFacial MD. Each of these exfoliators go beyond what at-home scrubs can do. For example, the HydraFacial MD simultaneously uses water to exfoliate and infuses serums into the skin, leaving the skin both exfoliated and hydrated. It is the dead skin cells sitting on the top layer of your skin that makes your skin look dull. So, when you have had your skin completely exfoliated, the result is beautiful, glowing skin.
3. Increased Circulation
As we age, our circulation slows, making our complexion dull. But, when you get a facial, you will receive steam and massage treatments that both serve to improve the blood flow of your facial skin, creating a healthy, pink-cheeked glow. This improved circulation leaves a youthful glow that even winter can’t steal!
4. Vitamin and Antioxidant Infusion
Your cells need nutrients to thrive. In a facial, your esthetician will place vitamin serums and antioxidants onto your skin, providing anti-aging benefits. These vitamins and antioxidants reduce inflammation, speed up new-cell turnover, and reverse sun damage. Whether you have been hitting the ski slopes or just walking around the mall, the vitamin and antioxidant infusion your skin receives in a facial will help kick the winter windburn and find its happy place.
5. Cleaned Out Pores and Blackheads
Your esthethcian will use the proper techniques to soften and open your pores, preparing them for extractions. Extractions will remove acne, blackheads, and impurities from your pores without harming your skin. At-home products can leave blackheads behind, which is why getting a facial this winter may be beneficial for giving you clear, healthy skin.
6. Expert Insight
At the beginning of every facial, estheticians will perform a skincare analysis, helping you pinpoint your needs and desires, so your facial is as effective as possible. As you enjoy your facial, you may also ask for skincare tips and insights to help you care for your unique skin. This expert insight will help you maintain the healthiest skin possible at home after your facial.
Amidst the busyness of winter, getting a facial can be the perfect escape. One hour to be pampered and cared for can make a world of a difference in how you go forward and face the months ahead. When you take time to care for yourself, you feel confident and ready to tackle whatever life throws at you. Our goal at Facelogic Upland is to make your facial your favorite hour of the month.
So, whether you are traveling to someplace cold this winter or sticking around the Inland Empire, we wish you beautiful, hydrated skin all winter long.
