When DIY Doesn’t Do The Trick: Why Professional Facials Are A Necessity
When we decide to pinch our pennies and be smarter with our money, often times it means foregoing expensive facials and beauty treatments and instead attempting DIY fixes. However, spending more to visit an esthetician or doctor could have a greater payoff, as there are a variety of important benefits that come along with seeing a trained professional versus attempting treatments yourself. Here are just some of the reasons you should put down that drugstore face mask and consult a skin expert:
A recent university study shows that more than 60 percent of people define their skin types and home care incorrectly. What if the reason your skin isn’t improving is because you are buying the extra-strength product when you really need the bottle with the sensitive skin label? A skin care professional is trained in skin analysis and in providing this information to you correctly.
An esthetician will also complete a thorough consultation before they begin. This consultation will include questions about your lifestyle, eating habits, products you’re using at home, and other treatments you’ve tried. It has been reported that a lot of this relates to problems with your skin and often an adjustment to your routine can alleviate many skin problems like bumps, breakouts, redness and premature aging.
Professionals can also perform a much deeper cleansing of the skin than at home. Cleansing the skin of dirt, debris and environmental factors can allow your skin to maintain a healthy balance and enhance its ability to fight off disease and aging. It can also enable the skin to better utilize the products that you apply for nourishment, protection and exfoliation.
Another benefit of facials is the massaging of the skin, which opens the pores to allow deeper penetration of products. Warmth resulting from professional facial massage also dilates the vascular system, encouraging it to bring nutrients and moisture to the deeper layers of the skin and to remove toxins produced during normal metabolism. This stimulation brings a healthy glow to the skin that only a professional facial massage can produce.
