Skincare is often an afterthought in your teens/early 20s, but as you age it’s important to make taking care of your skin a priority. Truthfully, you should start taking care of your skin as early as possible, but now is as good a time as any.  Let’s examine the key reasons why you should start incorporating facials into your skin care routine.

1. Expert Skin Analysis

When you go for a skin analysis, you’ll be asked to remove all of your makeup upon arrival (big step, I know!). By seeing your skin without makeup, your expert skin care consultant can identify targets problem areas with your skin, such as large pores, dehydration, or hyperpigmentation. Your consultant will then create an advanced treatment plan that suggests products for you to buy and use at home also.

2. One on One Advice

A facial consultation usually takes one hour and during this time your consultant will provide you with skin care tips and tricks alongside answering any questions that you have, Learning how to care for your skin yourself is a big part of getting a facial and you’ll find out which products to use for your skin type once you’ve left the clinic.

3. Expert Exfoliation Technique

Your facial will usually include an expert form of exfoliation that uses microdermabrasion crystals, ultrasound, acids, or enzymes. This treatment will smooth out your skin, encourage cellular turnover, break up skin discoloration and soften those pesky fine lines.

4. Get Rid Of Blackheads And Clogged Pores

Blackheads are the absolute worst to get rid of, and those drugstore strips can do more harm than good to your fragile skin. Using skin softening techniques, you skincare consultant will gently remove clogged pores and blackheads without harming your skin at all. You may experience some (or a lot) of redness following a professional extraction but you won’t have any long-term marks or scarring on your skin.

5. Long-term Skincare Solutions

Whatever your skin problems; whether it’s dry skin, redness, acne, or irritation, a professional facial will focus on exactly what your skin needs to solve those problems. If discolouration or brown spots is an issue for you, your skincare technician will use treatments to brighten and lighten your skin. Or if your skin is prone to dryness, you can reduce it with lipid-increasing ingredients that repair your skin’s protective barrier. With the right mix of ingredients and professional tools, your skin care expert can improve the appearance of your skin and give you the clear complexion you desire.

6. Checking For Skin Cancer

7,200 Canadians were diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer in 2017, so it’s extremely important to monitor your skin for any changes to moles or abnormal skin growths. These are the kind of subtle changes that will take a while to even notice, but having a regular skin care professional work with your skin means that they can assess for these abnormalities more in-depth and advise whether you need to see a doctor.
