Do You Know the Top 5 Health Benefits of a Facial?
February 15, 2013
Voila facials are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your skin, especially because our facials are customized to your skin’s specific needs. Regardless of your treatment type, you’ll leave the spa with a noticeably brighter, smoother, healthier glow.
But did you know that facials do more than help your skin’s appearance? As your skin is your largest organ and the organ most exposed to harmful elements, facials can have a positive impact on your health. In fact, the health benefits extend beyond your skin—as if you needed another reason to drop by the spa!
1. 1. Facials can increase circulation
Your blood carries vital nutrients to your cells, nutrients that help replenish your cells and carry away toxins and waste. Because heat opens blood vessels, facial steam increases circulation to your face and neck. Beyond relaxing your pores, the combination of steam and massage increases bloodflow that helps to maintain your cells.
2. 2. Facials can help improve skin’s elasticity
The facial massage serves several key purposes, including stimulating your skin’s collagen and encouraging collagen repair and growth. This helps to improve your skin’s ability to stretch and connect across the muscles in your face, building up your skin’s elasticity.
3. 3. Facials can help cleanse your lymphatic system
Feel puffy? Another benefit due to the massage, the gentle rubbing of specific areas on your neck will help stimulate your lymphatic system—a vital system of glands that support your immune system and drain excess fluid from external parts of your body. This helps to remove toxins and excess fluid that has built up over time.
4. 4. Facials can reduce congestion
Both skin congestion and sinus congestion benefit from facials. Because your sinus is centrally located across your face, the pressure that causes sinus headache pain can be helped by the heat and muscle stimulated received during a facial. Steam and essential oils such as eucalyptus will help to open your sinuses, relieve pressure and begin to decongest.
5. 5. Facials may reduce blood pressure caused by stress
Stress can wreck havoc on your body. Not only can it help you gain weight, it dulls your skin and hair, encourages aging by using excessive amounts of nutrients, and—among many other ill side effects—it raises your blood pressure. Fortunately, facials are designed to help you relax and let go of whatever is causing you stress. Even an hour completely away from stress can do wonders for your mental and physical well-being.
Regular facials can help your health and your confidence—facials help you look your best, feel your best, and leave the spa ready to go out and be your best. So what are you waiting for? Make a reservation by calling 519-880-8886!
