Typically, when the topic of facials comes up, it’s in the context of luxury pampering and women being the ones to do it. But if there’s one thing that everyone—men, women and teens alike—should be open to, it’s getting a professional facial, at least once every 6-8 weeks.

There’s no question that it’s one of the best ways to treat yourself because it’s super-soothing and relaxing. But there are also tons of science-based benefits that come from having them too.

Facials can reduce acne and even out your skin tone. A product that you may want to try is Sircuit Skin’s Double Trouble 5% L-Lactic Pomegranate Acai Peel. The antioxidants in the pomegranate and acai will help gently remove dead skin cells while reenergizing new ones. It will make your skin feel amazingly soft after just one application.

Facials can slow down the signs of aging. As we get older, we start to produce less collagen. Internally, you can fight this by eating collagen-rich foods such as salmon, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, berries and garlic. Externally, Sircuit Skin’s SWELL Oceanic Cooling Mask may be just what you’re looking for. It contains algae and caviar extract, pearl powder and yes, collagen (among other things). All of these ingredients work together to give you anti-aging benefits while immediately tightening up your skin as well.

Facials can detoxify your skin. Your face is filled with millions of tiny pores; ones that can easily fill up with debris, dirt, dead cells and sebum. Over time, that can lead to breakouts and dull-looking skin. Having a facial can remove all of the toxins so that your face can look clean and fresh. Washing your face with a product like SAVIOR Problem Skin Cleanser which contains 2% Salicylic Acid and 5% L-Lactic Acid can double-up as both a cleanser and an exfoliant. Got sensitive skin? No worries. There’s the SUPERMILD Sensitive Cleansing Crème that will be just perfect for you!

Facials are able to hydrate your skin. We’re made up of 60 percent water and we can only go 3-4 days without any kind of fluids in our system. But did you know that 75 percent of Americans are dehydrated? You need to replenish your body from the inside out first by drinking no less than 8-10 glasses of water a day (maybe some homemade infused water). But also give your skin the hydration it needs on the outside too. One way you can do this is by applying a mist directly onto your skin. There are all sorts of DIY recipes that you can try. One of Sircuit Skin’s that we think you will absolutely LOVE is IMMACULATE MIST Hydrating Mist for Problem Skin. It keeps your skin nice and moist (for that dewy look with a natural glow) while also “block” the harsh environmental elements from damaging your skin.

Facials can rejuvenate your eyes. Have your eyes been looking weary and worn lately? It could be due to a lack of sleep (you need to get no less than 6-8 hours, on average). It also could be because you’re not caring for the delicate skin that’s around them as much as you should. Give your eyes the boost that they need and you deserve with a dab or two of EYE TECH Anti-Wrinkle Eye Emulsion. It comes in a handy tube that looks a lot like lip balm and thanks to the Borage Oil, Vitamin A and Echinacea Stem Cells that are in it, you can reduce fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes as you rejuvenate them too!

Like we said these are just a handful of reasons why getting a facial on a consistent basis is one of the best things that you can do for both your health and appearance. At the very least, give yourself one at home. But for an ultra pampering experience, consider booking an appointment with our Aesthetician, Heather at our studio.

After one visit, we think you—and your face’s skin—will be hooked!
