Why You Should Be Getting Regular Massage and Facial Treatments
How long has it been since you had a facial treatment? This is the first question I ask clients at the start of their appointment. More common than you’d think, a typical reply is “Well...I had one on my birthday last year and I really meant to come back in 6 weeks but I just never had the chance.” If I had a dollar for every time I heard that, I would be writing this while drinking a Piña Colada on a white sandy beach and wearing a hat and sunscreen (of course).
Americans are the last to realize the importance of taking time out for themselves and experiencing regular visits to a spa for facials and/or massage. You make regular appointments with the hairdresser to cut and color the grey, the gym to stay in shape, and the dentist to perfect your smile, but what about your esthetician? Taking care of your skin and body with regular treatments is just as important.
Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you and the last thing you see in the mirror at night. As you age, your skin does not exfoliate at the same level so it can become dull and lackluster as the years pass. Getting professional exfoliation on a regular basis will give you cleaner pores, less breakouts, promote cell turnover, boost collagen production and will give you a healthy skin balance. Just by implementing regular 4, 6 or 8 week visits, you can make a huge difference and limit the signs of aging and skin issues. Think of facials as preventive rather than corrective. Establish a relationship with your esthetician; they can be sure the home care products you are using are right for your skin condition. Your skin changes with the season and so should your products; the moisturizer you used in January could cause breakouts in May.
Getting in touch with the needs of your body is so important and isn’t thought of until you physically feel strain, pain and soreness. Monthly massage can decrease anxiety and depression as well as blood pressure, ease pain, improve sleep, curb headaches and increase disease fighting white blood cells. Many countries have acknowledged the healing powers of spa visits for years and don’t see them as a luxury, but rather a natural part of one’s life.
Fitting regular spa treatments into your routine is easier than you think! Reserve your next appointment after completing a treatment or take advantage of a membership program. Spa memberships are designed to make it easier to implement regular spa visits into your life. Discounts on the treatments and products along with other perks are part of the benefits of having a spa membership. Plus, with regular treatments, your therapist will get to know your skin and body, which will ensure the perfect customized treatment with each visit.
