Imagine a soothing massage. Now imagine that, but for your face. Usually thought of as a pampering practice, facials are actually a very important aspect of skincare. Here’s why you need a facial, plus wellness benefits associated with a facial.
Jess, licensed and insured esthetician, suggests receiving a facial every 2 weeks (or more, depending on your preferences and skin). Besides achieving relaxation, they provide many benefits to enhance the beauty of your healthy skin, as well as address and correct concerns.
What’s involved? The process includes cleansing the skin, exfoliation and correction, followed by moisturizing and and protection with various products. You can also take the opportunity to ask your esthetician about best practices, or any questions you may have about your skin, including products to buy and ingredients you should look for/stay away from.

For anyone who love massages, you’ll be glad to know facials include a massage! And the FFC Signature Facial actually includes a back massage. The different manipulations during the facial will increase oxygen and blood flow to the skin, reducing the appearance of dark circles around the eyes, relaxing the muscles, and slowing the onset of fine lines and wrinkles while firming the muscles beneath the skin.
Regular facials promote healthy clear, well hydrated complexions leaving us all with young, beautiful skin.
