What Does a Facial Do for Your Skin?

It’s no secret that we tend to wear stress on our face. Our skin shows signs of what we are going through and if we don’t take care of ourselves, more problems can surface, quite literally. Skincare is self-care and as we shall see, the benefits of giving our skin a refresh can be immeasurable. 

Facials are a great way to rid your skin of impurities, relax, and shed stress (and years). Today, we will talk about the benefits of facials and show just how far they go beyond regular skincare. 

What is a Facial? 

A facial is a spa treatment that leaves your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Facials can help clear clogged pores, hydrate skin and remove dead skin cells.  

Facials include exfoliation scrubs, steam, and massage which aid in blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The steam helps improve clogged pore extraction. Facial massage also helps to relax facial muscles which can ease the signs of small wrinkles and help reduce puffiness or redness as well. 

What Are the Different Types of Facials? 

Rejuvenation Facial 

This is the most common type of facial. This is the best one to go for if you’ve never had a facial before and want to experience the lay of the land. It normally includes skin cleaning, steaming, exfoliation, extraction of impurities and massage.  


This is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and “peach fuzz.” It aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smoother than ever. A tool called a dermatone to achieve these results. 

Chemical Peel 

A chemical peel is a treatment that is used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, hands or neck. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off naturally. The results show brighter, tighter and more even skin.  

Botanical Skin Resurfacing Facial

Using the power of the tourmaline mineral (which is known to aid in detoxification and improve toxin-related ailments), the Botanical Skin resurfacing treatment is able to naturally increase radiance in the skin. This treatment, which is ideal for dull, dehydrated skin, includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, a customized massage, toning, a masque, and moisturization. 

Benefits of Getting a Facial 

Deep Cleaning 

A facial helps your skin to get rid of dirt and oil build-up, as well as unwanted toxins from everyday life. It also rejuvenates your skin by cleansing it of bacteria that causes skin problems like acne. Exfoliation helps skin feel softer, smoother and refreshed. Enhanced exfoliation, such as microdermabrasion, removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and unclogs your pores, giving you a deep cleanse and allowing fresh skin to create beneficial sebum and collagen.  


Facial treatments can help slow down the aging process and prevent unsightly wrinkles from forming. Getting a facial massage with anti-aging products helps blood circulation and oxygen flow, which promotes the production of collagen and improves the elasticity of your skin. This can lead to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles while reducing their appearance as well.  


Facials, with all their different treatments and steps, lead to fresh, renewed skin. Massage, exfoliation, and pore cleaning all work to improve the appearance of your skin, giving it a glow and radiances you didn’t have before. One treatment may not totally change you, but continued treatments can show huge changes and incredible improvements on skin over time. 


Facials are a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Letting someone pamper your skin helps melt away stress and lets you unwind while you do something good for your health and wellbeing. Facials always include a massage and one thing most everyone can agree on: a good massage can change your week for the better.  

Massages help us relax and clear our mind. Just like your body, your facial muscles need a massage every once in a while to stimulate circulation and detox your skin. That boost in circulation detoxifies your skin, making it look healthy and youthful.  

Treats Different Skin Issues 

Regular facial treatment will help to treat a myriad of skin issues, such as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, sun damage, acne, inflammation. It can also help with redness, rosacea, dehydration, wrinkles, acne scarring, loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin. By repeatedly stimulating, cleansing, replacing, and hydrating the skin on your face, you can get healthier skin that makes you glow.
