But what if you changed your belief around this?
What if you made a monthly facial as big of a priority as buying groceries every month?
Sure, so you need food to survive, there’s no way around it, but you need time out and relaxation just as much!
The effects of stress over the long-term can actually increase your risk of all sorts of physical ailments and may even increase your risk of disease. Why get to that point when you can prevent anything bad from happening, simply through regular self-care rituals?
Facials are wonderful for your skin, and we’ll talk more about that in this article, but they’re just as good for your mental and emotional well-being.

You’ll enjoy an unrivaled, deep down cleanse
Sure, clay masks at home with the girls are fun and certainly help to clean out clogged pores, but nothing quite beats the type of cleanse you’ll enjoy at your local spa.
A professional facial treatment includes steam to open up your pores, a thorough exfoliation to remove dead skin cells (we especially love microdermabrasion!) and even extractions so you can finally kiss those blackheads goodbye!
Your skin will feel like new once your skin therapist is finished and you can bet your at-home products will work like magic now that your pores are open and ready to receive!
Will calm an anxious mind and reduce your stress
Stress is the enemy when it comes to a healthy internal environment, as well as happy, radiant skin but a regular facial treatment will truly help to melt your troubles away, even if just for just that special hour you’ve set aside for yourself.
The massage that comes at the end will boost blood flow for an instant rosy glow and it will help to boost collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Not to mention, it’s absolute bliss and you may even be lucky enough to have your therapist incorporate some soothing, relaxing essential oils!
You’ll learn more about your actual skin type
So many women are still not sure what their real skin type is.
The problem with this is that if you get it wrong, then the products you choose aren’t going to do their job.
For example, if you think you have dry skin, but your skin is actually a combination skin type, then you may exacerbate the issue by using products that are too intense and putting more oil in places you don’t need it.
A good therapist, dermatologist or aesthetician will provide a full face mapping so you know what your skin type really is and then you can start a proper regime at home.
A regular facial will help you to feel beautiful on the inside and the outside and you’ll glow with healthy radiance! Make yourself a priority, you are so worth it!
