How Often Should You Get Facials?
Upon booking your session for a facial, you’re already thinking about the nice, relaxing time you will have along with the treat your skin will be receiving. But often, you may be wondering how frequent you should treat yourself to this treatment. We will be going into the details on what will be the best solution for you.
The golden rule is to have a facial every 4-6 weeks. This recommended timeframe is due to the fact that your skin’s life cycle of growth and exfoliation takes around this approximate time. Upon finishing your facial, your skin will be hydrated as circulation on the skin has been boosted. In the long run, cells will regenerate and the long-term benefits of the facial will kick in and help your skin clean, clear and toned.
However, as each person has different types of skin there are some conditions that may require you to come back more or less often. For example, if you have problematic skin i.e. acne prone, blackheads, whiteheads, etc., you may have to do a course of treatments close together to heal the issue and once your skin heals, you will be able to go back to the golden rule of facials.
Now, if there are issues concerning budget (as facials can be a little costly), the specialists do recommend to come at least every season. This is if you live in a 4-season country, so that the treatment is able to allow your skin to adjust to the changing weather. Otherwise if not, then to aim for once every 3 months.
On another note, if budget is not the issue it doesn’t mean that you should choose to do a facial too often. This may cause more harm to your skin and you should follow the recommended frequency the esthethician has given you. In between your treatments, you should maintain your skin with the skincare regime that is suitable for you.
