7 Benefits of Facials You Must Know - Award Winning Spa in Singapore - Healing Touch Spa

Facial treatments may seem like a luxury and not a necessity for many people. However, in reality, facials offer numerous benefits that not only improve the appearance of your skin but also boost its overall health and integrity. Facial treatments are formulated with ingredients that have been scientifically proven for their health-boosting effects on the skin.

We list here the top 7 benefits of facials that will make you want to have that nourishing experience ASAP.

  1. Deep cleansing
  2. Facial treatments provide thorough cleansing and detoxification of your skin. You might think, “I wash my face daily, do I really need a deep cleansing facial?” The answer is a resounding yes. Even if you wash your face daily, you should still include having facials in your skincare regimen. Facials thoroughly wash and clean your skin, even reaching areas that are not reached by your daily skincare routine. Deep cleansing removes clogged oil and dirt from your pores. Through this method, you can get rid of white heads and black heads.

  3. Exfoliation
  4. Exfoliating is one of the steps done during facial treatments. It is important to exfoliate your skin once in a while to eliminate dead skin cells, dirt, and other impurities that are left on your skin even with daily cleansing. Exfoliating prevents clogging of pores and consequently, prevents acne breakouts. Regular exfoliation also promotes healthy skin by enhancing cell regeneration and collagen production. While you can do exfoliation at home by using facial scrubs, having a facial treatment is safer and more effective because a trained skin professional does the exfoliation for you.

  5. Enhanced skin absorption
  6. When the skin is rough and dry, it loses its ability to absorb skincare products. The hydrating, repairing, and detoxifying effects of facials make the skin moist and smooth. Hence, facial treatments enhance your skin’s capacity to absorb facial products effectively.

  7. Brighter and heathier complexion
  8. Facial treatments are infused with nourishing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 that can give you a fresher, brighter, and younger-looking complexion. One good example of such nourishing facial is the SkinCeuticals Glow Facial treatment, which features the Hydrating B5 masque. The Hydrating B5 Masque contains high amounts of hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 that promotes skin repair and enhances skin hydration.

  9. Anti-aging
  10. Facial treatments are also formulated with effective anti-aging components. For example, the SkinCeuticals Glow Facial Treatment also features the Vitamin C Firming Masque with Phloretin CF, which is an antioxidant-rich treatment that prevents skin aging. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can reverse the appearance of wrinkles. Phloretin CF is another antioxidizing substance that eliminates free radicals from skin cells to prevent cell damage and aging. Overall, the SkinCeuticals Glow Facial gives you a bright, young-looking glow.

  11. Promote lymphatic flow
  12. Facial treatments are usually accompanied by short facial and scalp massage sessions. Facial massage, even for just a short period of time, can help in promoting lymphatic flow. Good lymphatic flow prevents water retention and ensures that metabolic wastes and toxins are eliminated from cells. It also promotes efficient blood circulation that can give you a radiant and healthy complexion.

  13. Reduce inflammation and improve skin texture
  14. Some facial treatments can also relieve inflammation in people with sensitive skin. Known triggers of flare-ups include allergens, sun exposure, temperature changes, and even increased sugar intake. Facials such as the SkinCeuticals Calming Facial Treatment provide calming and rejuvenating effects on the skin. The SkinCeuticals Calming Facial is formulated with Phyto Corrective Gel and Hydrating B5 Gel that ease inflammation and repair the damaged areas of the skin.
