Now that you know what a facial is, you're probably wondering how often I should be getting one.
You should be getting a facial from a professional every 4-6 weeks. 💆🏻♀️
With that being said, you should still be doing your skincare routine at home between facial treatments from your aesthetician. It's crucial to have a skincare regime at home to rake in all the benefits you're getting from your professional facial.
The recommended time is every 4-6 weeks because on average, it takes 28 days for our cells to completely regenerate themselves. This process is called the cell turnover process and it happens to all of us. Our cells are always renewing themselves and it takes about a month to have completely new cells.
By getting regular facials, you're not allowing dead skin cells to buildup on the surface of your skin. You're also encouraging more healthy cells by using certain skincare products. For example, Vitamin C is going to help fight off free radicals and by wearing sunscreen daily, you're helping to prevent sun spots (hyperpigmentation).
We as aestheticians can't make a miracle happen. We won't be able to "fix" your skin in one treatment therefore booking regular facials every 4-6 weeks and being consistent at home with your skincare products, is how you're going to achieve your skincare goals.
