It isn’t a reach to say that a simple facial treatment can make your skin healthier and help you look better, but would you believe that a facial can make you healthier in unexpected ways? Here are just a few ways that a trip to our office can have a big impact on your health.
If you have ever had a facial, you may already know they can be very soothing, but did you know that this form of skin care can have long-term benefits in terms of stress management? A relaxing facial and the resulting happiness with your appearance has been shown to lower levels of cortisol in the system. The stress hormone known as cortisol is linked to many diseases ranging from insomnia to heart disease. Lowering cortisol levels can result in better cognitive function, memory, and focus. The sense of calm that results from skin care can make many moments throughout your day easier and less stressful, as well as ensure better sleep at night.
Promote Healing and Circulation
The largest organ in the human body is the epidermis, and it takes a beating throughout the day. More than any other organ, it protects you from diseases, heat, cold, and dozens of environmental exposures that keep it in a constant state of healing. Facials are designed to promote this healing and provide better circulation to help your skin in this constant struggle. Both the products and the temperature management that is used during the process are intended to create a nourishing environment where your skin can work the magic that keeps you not only looking better, but also feeling better.
Facial skin care can help you in more ways. The treatment can wash away stubborn, clinging allergens as well as viruses that are seeking a host. If you are already feeling congested, the nasal passageways can be cleared up significantly by the products and facial massage that accompany the treatment.
