Facials: how often should I take them?

Facials: how often should I take them?

By Christine Dychiao Regular facials not only keep our skin clean, they also support our skin’s growth and exfoliation process with peels and extractions. Steaming and massages meanwhile help increase circulation and reduce signs of premature aging while nourishing masks keep our skin hydrated and moisturized. In a nutshell, a regular facial is the kind of beauty boost our skin needs to stay glowing and healthy. But how regular should a regular facial be?


There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to how frequent we should go for a facial. Factors such as age, skin type, hormones, skin care goals, even our beauty budget and where we live determine how often we could or should see an aesthetician or skin therapist.

 

For those lucky enough to have dry to normal, and generally healthy skin, many therapists and dermatologists recommend a monthly facial. Our skin takes about 4 to 6 weeks to regenerate, giving ample time for the skin cycle to fully take its course.

However, for those with specific concerns like oily skin, acne, anti-ageing or firming/toning, more frequent as well as a regimented course of treatments are recommended. This could be anywhere from weekly sessions over a course of several weeks, to twice a month facials, done until the skin is deemed healthy enough to go for monthly maintenance sessions.

 

Seek out a highly recommended professional to give your skin an objective assessment, and provide you with a targeted routine to help you reach your skin care goals in no time.
