You’ve heard the saying, ‘out of the mouths of babes…’ My little granddaughter recently saw a Christmas card I had received from her Pre-k teacher. She looked over the picture of her teacher with her boys and said ‘she is really pretty’… and then stopped puts her hand to her check and exclaimed “I know! She got a facial!” That little comment brought a giggle and made my day… she is learning about skin care at a very very young age!
As the saying goes you can never have too many facials. I usually schedule one every month and if I plan it right I might have two! I have two estheticians that I just love. Both ladies do facials a little different from the other so I have a variety of modalities in which to indulge.
Facials during this time of the year are so important to our skin. With winter’s harsh conditions coupled with the drying effect of wind and heat on our skin, a facial becomes an oasis for our entire face and décolleté. They work to counteract these effects by improving our circulation, providing deep cleansing, as well as restoring moisture and hydrating our skin.
During the winter months my facials include the use of exfoliants and masks which remove the dead skin cells so that the new skin cells underneath are revealed. Winter is also a great time to get a peel treatment. My Clairsonic does and awesome job of deep cleansing, but a peel really cleans your skin to a whole new layer. After a peel your products will reach a deeper level since it doesn’t have to fight its way through makeup residue or the daily grime that comes with being outside.
Start the New Year off with a facial and celebrate the beginning of 2016 and a new you! And then ready yourself for some amazing new products on the horizon which we can discover together!
