Are Facials Really Beneficial for Our Skin?

Astique Clinic | 22 Nov 2018

It is important to have a good skincare regime to ensure that your skin is well taken care of daily. But on top of that, getting a professional facial done at a spa or a salon once a month is also an essential step to paving the way for a healthy and glowing skin.

When it comes to facials, don't expect magic to happen overnight. Facials are more like a long-term investment for our skin. Think of it like a car - If you send your car for regular servicing, it will be in good condition and last you a longer time than if you just left it alone.

However, do make sure that you do your research and go to a trusted spa or salon for your facials, because we know that not every spa is the same. Try Astique Clinic's signature facials if you haven't for a skin pampering session.

Here are some of the reasons why facials are beneficial to our skin.


1. Deep cleansing

Our everyday home cleansing can only do so much. A good facial can remove dirt and clogs on our skin to prevent skin issues. A facial that comes with an exfoliation process will also remove all the dead skin cells and allow all the goodness of the mask and skin care products to be easily absorbed by your skin.


2. Deep hydration

Hydration is the key to great skin. From simple masking to using high-tech equipment to give your skin the hydration boost it requires, most facials deeply hydrate and moisturise your skin. When our skin is well hydrated, fine lines will be minimised, our skin will also look healthy and rejuvenated, and skin aging will be kept at bay.


3. Improves circulation

Facial massages that are included in most facial sessions can improve your blood circulation. Better blood circulation will stimulate collagen production and improves our skin elasticity, and this in turns helps to prevent skin aging.
