Nothing feels as good as being pampered at the spa for a day, but sometimes the price tag can be alarming. While we love to splurge on ourselves, there is a balance between taking care of your skin when it needs it and just blowing cold hard cash on excessive treatments.
So how do you know when it’s time to see the esthetician? Your skin speaks to you through different reactions and if you can learn to read those, you’ll know exactly when it’s time for some extra love. Here are a few easy signs that your skin is ready for a trip to the spa!
Your Skin is Dull and Flakey
No matter how hydrating and nourishing your skin care routine is, you can accumulate dead skin cells on the surface of your face causing an overall dullness which can make wrinkles look awful.
If this sounds like your skin, perhaps it’s time to sit in for a hydrating facial treatment and some professional exfoliation. This will allow for the dead skin cells and dull skin to be safely cleared from your face and then provide a surge of hydration and brightening to your complexion!
You’ve Got Clogged Pores and Breakouts
Breakouts can happen at any age and there are so many factors like alcohol, pollution, and diet that can contribute to them. If you are suffering from enlarged pores, it can make those breakouts worse and if they are showing up consistently, it might be time for a facial.
Opt for an extraction facial or one for acne prone skin. The trained professionals will safely extract excess dirt and oil from pores without leaving marks on your face or breaking the skin. They can then treat your skin with oil-controlling products after to make sure your face stays clean and clear.
Your Face Feels Puffy
If the morning puffiness seems to last all day, perhaps it’s time to head to the spa for some professional help. When your skin appears puffy, there are a number of things that can be causing it and relief can be as easy as a few pressure points and a face massage.
Professional estheticians are highly trained in blockage and drainage points within the face. When puffiness is caused by excess toxins or blockages, they use their hands and specialized massage tools to release the tension from those points and release the toxins through drainage points. This will not only leave your face feeling like it’s had a great workout, but you’ll be amazing at what it can do for your complexion and reducing inflammation!
