Summer might be over, but caring for your skin is in style year-round. After a long, sunny summer, here's why you should invest in a deep cleaning facial for your skin.
While summer might be all about getting outside and basking in the warm sunshine, it's not necessarily the best time of year for your skin. In fact, all of that time in the sun can have negative consequences for your skin if you're not careful. UVA and UVB rays have not only been directly linked to skin cancer, but also have been proven to contribute to premature signs of aging. So if you've been out in the sun all summer long, even with some sunscreen on, you may start to notice some hyperpigmentation and fine lines forming where you didn't have them before. But there's good news! A deep cleaning facial can help you deal with some of that sun damaged skin and help reduce signs of aging, including fine lines and hyperpigmentation. This kind of deep healing facial is especially beneficial as we head into colder weather and less moisture in the air. When the air is drier, fine lines are more likely to stay prominent because your skin might not have the oils and lubricants necessary to smooth them out appropriately. But a great facial can help you retain that youthful smoothness and glow to your skin well into winter. In addition, it may help repair some additional damage sustained by your skin during the long summer months.
After a lot of summer sun, your skin could probably use a little bit of rejuvenation. Fortunately, facials are an excellent source of skin rejuvenation. In addition to some much-needed moisture in your skin, you're getting an amazing exfoliating treatment when you invest in a facial. Not only does this provide a silky smooth skin surface, but it can also help encourage new skin cell growth. The exfoliation you're getting with your facial guarantees that your skin will better absorb and retain moisture in the future. All of your favorite skincare products will absorb more easily into your skin and likely have more noticeable effects. A facial can also help increase blood circulation in the face, which can in turn lead to even more new skin cell growth, which means a healthier glow post-facial.
If you struggle with acne during the summer because your skin is producing more oil, an end-of-summer facial is going to help you out. One of the biggest benefits of investing in a facial after those long summer months is that you're ensuring your pores are open and unclogged. Aside from helping your skin look brighter and smoother, clear pores can ensure a glowing complexion. The clearer your pores are, the less likely you are to suffer from breakouts. Steam is typically used to help the pores open before a facial, and your dermatologist may also perform a few extractions if any pores are particularly clogged up.
