Most people wouldn’t get a pedicure only every month or wash their face only every month. So why do we not get facials as often as we should?? Until a couple weeks ago, I actually hadn’t had a facial in over a decade. And even then, that was my first facial! And now I can especially see why I should be getting facials more often.
How Often Should You Get A Facial?
When I was younger, like most people, my skin was oily. I got used to this and very rarely moisturized or used any creams or oils on my skin because it was so oily already. The last thing I wanted to do was add to a breakout. But just because our skin was one way doesn’t mean it will stay the same way.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really noticed how dry my skin has become. And when your skin is dry, first of all, it makes you look older. Your makeup may crease or not look smooth or natural because it’s sitting on top of dry, dead skin. Your skin needs moisture. And you can moisturize all day long, but unless you exfoliate, your skin will only retain so much of that moisture because you’re putting creams on top of more dry, dead skin.
Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells and makes your skin look and feel so much better. It makes your skin look softer, more youthful and even more hydrated. This is what a facial does. A facial is a multi step skin treatment that helps to rejuvenate and nourish your skin, making it appear healthier and younger.
The facial I got at Spa Therapies involved steam, exfoliation, a peel, hydration and a massage. It was even better than I thought it would be. And it left me saying why don’t I get these more often? I couldn’t believe how moisturized my skin looked and felt afterwards. It looked more hydrated, smooth, dewy and youthful. And it felt that way too.
Facials can help prevent clogged pores, increase collagen production, promotes skin elasticity and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. So why aren’t we doing them more often?? I recommend exfoliating 2-4 times a week and getting a facial every few months. I honestly think it will change the way your skin looks and feels. Have you had a facial before? How often do you get them?

I totally agree with you that one every few months is a must. I fell of the wagon and my skin was horrible and just started going back and immediately started seeing results!
I rely on facials, they are lifesavers and not to mention just heavenly.
I’m definitely going to get one now!
I love facials!! This one sounds amazing, especially because my skin also gets so dry!
cute & little
What a fun post! I love getting facials! I try to get them every season change, but honestly I could go every few weeks if I had the time.
Loving this post and it’s reminding me i need to schedule a facial soon!
Your skin is glowing! I hate to say it, but I’ve never gotten a facial..I’ve been wanting to, but just get nervous about how my skin will react afterwards.
I wish I could afford to have facials more often. They’re incredibly relaxing and I always see a positive difference in my skin!
I love a good facial! They make all the difference.
I would love it if I could get facials, or even pedicures every month, a little pampering goes a long way, and I’m sure your skin really feels the benefits!

I always thought I could just do masks and stuff at home but this looks way better!
