How Often Should You Get a Facial Done?

While getting a facial done is a routine matter among most skin-health conscious people, the question is what routine to follow. It depends on a lot of factors like season, skin type, age et al; and it also varies from person to person. Read this piece for some tips about how to decide when you are due for your next facial appointment. The skin rejuvenation cycle The skin cells go through a life cycle of their own. Our body follows an ongoing process of generating new skin cells. Gradually new skin cells get pushed up as the older layers live out their life span and get exfoliated either on their own or with help. This whole process takes about three to four weeks when aided along with timely facials. That’s why beauticians recommend that you get a facial done once every three to four weeks. Getting a facial done way too frequently would be of no use and delaying for too long would only result in dull skin. However, that is only a textbook figure, since the skin rejuvenation cycle varies from person to person. It depends on several factors like age, skin type, environment, food habits, sleeping patterns and more.

If your skin is sensitive, try to find a good facial that suits you fine, and you will probably not need to go for a facial more than once in two months. Skin condition Your skin condition also plays an important factor. No matter your skin type, if your skin is acne, blackheads or infection-prone, sometimes more than one facial a month is recommended. You need to understand your skin condition and map a facial routine according to that. Skin age Body metabolizes food faster at younger age; therefore, the skin rejuvenation cycle is shorter. New cells are generated faster and replace older cells faster too. So, gaps between facials can be stretched out more than you need to when you are younger. At a young age, facials can be replaced by good skin care regimes which helps in keeping skin clean, clear and healthy. Why is it important...
