How often should you get facials?
This is a question that many people ask but one that doesn’t have an easy answer. Simply put, your personal skincare needs depend on a variety of factors. The first thing to consider is why you’re getting a facial. If you’re going through a rough time with your skin, struggling with acne or other issues, then frequent facials provide the deep cleaning you need. With proper exfoliation, extraction, and non-clogging moisturizing, you’ll be on your way to clearer skin in no time.
However, if you’re looking to maintain that fresh-faced, youthful glow, the focus changes. To understand that, you need to understand how the skin is constructed. Human skin has 3 main layers: the subcutaneous layer, the dermis, and the epidermis. Cells are “born” deep in the dermis and work their way to the surface, or the epidermis. A facial helps the epidermis shed the dead, dry skin to reveal the softer, healthier skin below.
But remember your epidermis changes as your body changes. When you’re in your teens, the epidermis sheds and renews itself about every 16 days. As you get older, however, the renewal cycle lengthens. Therefore, getting a facial every 4-6 weeks can help you maintain that fresh-faced look all year long.
In the end, the best way to determine how often you need a facial is to find an esthetician you trust and work together to determine your skin care needs. She’ll help you find the balance that will help you keep your skin in baby-soft shape and your look fresh.
