Facial therapy is a necessity in every skincare routine. There are so many beauty benefits of getting facial therapy for yourself.

What is facial therapy?

Facial therapy is the exfoliating, moisturizing, toning, massaging, and treatment of the face. The procedure is done by a beautician or a dermatologist. The treatment is a part of the full skincare and therapy package.

Are facial therapy and facials the same?

Facials are a part of facial therapy. Massaging the face has a lot of processes because the skin is sensitive and thin. Before the massage, you are first given a nice facial consisting of exfoliation, is the gentle scrubbing away of dead skin cells dirt and excess oil produced by the sebaceous glands, moisturization using serums and creams, and finally, the massage. However, the therapy will vary depending on the facial therapy package.

The best for last, the massage. The skin on the face is sensitive, but it too needs some tender, love, and care.

Imagine laying down with calming music playing in the background with soft incense burning and a well-trained beautician giving you a facial therapy for an hour.

Relaxing, right?

Benefits of a facial therapy

Improves pigmentation and blood flow

The facial skin is prone to hyper-pigmentation. Hyper-pigmentation happens when there is more melanin produced in the skin making it darker. Sun damage can also be a cause. Facial therapy could gradually remove the hyper-pigmentation and improve the overall complexion of the skin. 

Reduces stress

Massages engage the sympathetic nervous system, which relaxes the body. Stress is an innate part of life. But we still need relief for the betterment of our health.

Slows down the visible signs of ageing

Age spots, wrinkles, lines, etc., are all signs of ageing. Ageing is a normal process. However, it is good to keep our skin healthy and nourished.

Detoxifies the skin

You may not know this but when the body detoxifies itself (pushes out toxins), some of it comes through the skin. And sometimes, the toxins get trapped under the skin which causes unusual breakouts or pimples. Facial therapy will speed up the detoxifying process riding your skin of the toxins at one go. Say goodbye to pesky pimples!
