We all want our skin to look perfect and flawless. But pollution, dirt and stressful lifestyles can take a toll on our skin which leads to dull, dry and damaged skin. Therefore, it becomes imperative to pamper our skin by putting some extra efforts. Like we detox our body similarly we need to detox our facial skin too to keep it in good perfect health. And one of the best ways to do so is by indulging oneself in relaxing and rejuvenating facials.


Facials are skincare treatments for the face which involves steaming, exfoliating, massaging, masking, and moisturizing to correct the skin tone and make it radiant and beautiful.

All these steps mentioned here leads to removal of dry and dull skin, helps in deep cleansing of pores, and improvement in the skin texture. It also fights acne causing bacteria too. In other words, Facials are a great and relaxing way to keep the skin clean and hydrated and bring back the natural radiance of the skin. Facials make your skin rejuvenated and radiant and are a great way to make your skin bright, young, and firmer.

There are two types of Facials : Natural and Chemical

Natural Facials are those which involves the use of natural ingredients or products whereas Chemical facials involve microdermabrasion and glycolic peels

Are facials good for your skin?

Yes Facials are good for the skin because of the following reasons

Skin Cleansing

Facials help in thorough cleansing of skin. We regularly cleanse our face with soap, and water but despite that certain impurities remain stuck deep within the pores. But a facial helps to clean the skin effectively and helps to get rid of the excess build-up, dirt and toxins. Facials are also effective in removing acne causing bacterias from the skin.


The exfoliation step in facial helps in removing the bad skin cells from the skin surface and thereby helps in unclogging the pores. This, inturn, will allow better absorption of skincare products into the skin. As a result, your skin will look and feel softer and smoother. And, the makeup will blend easier and look better too.


The Steaming process involved in facials help in removing blackheads, blemishes and pimples. Steam makes the skin to sweat, open up the pores, which in turn releases toxins faster. It also helps the skin to easily get rid of blackheads and whiteheads which are one of the main reasons of acne formation. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, then facials are very good for your skin.


Face mask is another imperative step in facial process. Just sit back, and relax while you have your face mask on. Masks have nourishing and hydrating properties that replenish your skin pores, and the ingredients in it provides the necessary nutrients. 

Relaxes mind and body

Facials helps in relaxing mind and body. Stress is the main cause of dry and dull looking skin. The massage involved in Facials helps the facial skin cells to relax, and balances the mind. Massage also boosts up the circulation of blood, and thereby helps in detoxification of skin and makes the skin healthy, young, and beautiful.


Anti-ageing benefits

Facials has anti-ageing properties and helps in slowing down the ageing process and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Massaging the face using an anti-ageing cream during the facial helps increase blood circulation and oxygen flow, which promotes collagen production and enhances the elasticity of your skin. This leads to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Rejuvenates your skin

A good facial involves steaming, exfoliating, massaging, masking, and moisturising. All these facial steps combined together help lift away the dull skin layer and reveal skin that’s extremely soft, supple and rejuvenated. This is a great way to improve the appearance of the skin, giving it a healthy, radiant glow and balanced complexion. It may be difficult to see instant results, but with time, your skin is going to feel restored! Hence, it is vital to be consistent and regular with your facials.

How frequently should you go for facial?

Once a month if you have oily, acne-prone, dry or combination skin and Once in every two months if you have sensitive skin.

Overall, I would say facials are good for your skin for they help in treating dehydrated and dry skin. I would recommend you go for facials atleast once in a month to maintain your skin’s health.
