Why Are Facials Important For Healthy Skin?

Regualr Facials at Top Beauty Salon in CheltenhamEvery day our skin faces issues including pollution, dirt, grime, and dead skin cells building up, and unfortunately there isn’t much we can do to avoid this. We can do our best to keep our face clean but this isn’t usually enough and our skin often doesn’t get the thorough attention that it needs.

We can also end up spending a small fortune on skin products that go to waste, don’t work or aren’t used on conjunction with correct skin care routines.

In the long run, regular facials are often more affordable and effective for healthy looking skin.

What Happens During a Facial Treatment?

During a facial your Martin & Phelps beauty therapist deeply cleanses and exfoliates your skin, this allows your skincare products to fully absorb and do their jobs effectively.

One of the most important steps in a facial is exfoliation. This step helps to encourage the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This is great news for all skin types, particularly those wanting to improve the appearance of acne scars. The results can be seen instantly.

After just one facial, you are sure to see immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin, which is why your Martin & Phelps therapist will recommend appropriate homecare products to ensure those improvements continue in between your facial appointments.

Aren’t Facials Expensive?

You will find that you need to use less of your usual products after your facial, making them last longer and saving you money in the long run. You will notice that after having a facial your make-up glides on more easily and looks smoother and you could use less as many women use a lot of products to “cover up” bad skin. 

Facials will also improve the tone, texture and elasticity of your skin which can be caused by air pollution and sun exposure, further saving you money on expensive anti-aging products and procedures.


How Regularly Should I Book in For a Facial?

It is recommended that to keep your skin in great condition, you should have a facial between 4-6 weeks apart. In between your facials you should ensure thorough cleaning and daily moisturising. The most important thing to apply to your skin daily is some form of sun protection, even in the winter. This is essential to prevent the damage that the sun causes to our skin, an easy way to do this is to ensure that your moisturisers and foundations contain SPF.

The Environ skin experts will carry out extractions during your facial, applying gentle pressure to your pores to “extract” the content. This will prevent any long-term damage that you might be causing to your skin at home by picking or squeezing spots. It is likely that you will find that by having regular facials at our Cheltenham beauty salon you will no longer feel the need to pick and pop your spots yourself.

Be sure to book in with one of our Martin & Phelps skin experts to start your journey to flawless and fabulous skin.
