Why a Professional Facial Is a Must

By Ariane Gagnon

As you may know, the largest organ in your body is your skin. And the skin on your face is more sensitive and delicate than anywhere else. Which makes taking care of it all the more important. Given the external and internal factors that can take their toll on your skin, we recommend you get a professional facial at least twice a year, or with every change of season, in addition to your regular beauty regimen.
What can have an effect on your skin?
Lifestyle: We all know that alcohol can wreak havoc on your face. But what does it do exactly? It's really quite simple: not only does it dry out your epidermis, but it can also cause the small blood vessels to dilate and burst, making your complexion red and blotchy.
Smoking is also a known irritant. Tobacco inhibits blood flow, prevents the absorption of vitamin C and leads to decreased collagen production. The result? Unsightly wrinkles.
And let's not forget the pore-blocking pollution, dust and impurities in the air.
The elements: We're aware of the damaging effects UVA and UVB rays can have and how important the proper sun protection is (insérer article sur la crème solaire). But did you know that wind, cold and heat, along with temperature changes, can also dry out your skin in a flash?
Water intake: It's true! Six glasses of water a day can make all the difference in staying hydrated and having radiant, healthy skin.
Why get a facial from a professional?
Having your skin professionally cleansed is a small luxury that is great for your face –and amazing for your self-esteem! Let a specialist take an up-close look and determine the necessary course of action: from deep moisturizing and removing blackheads to applying an anti-aging treatment. This, coupled with a soothing facial massage, will make your skin more vibrant, supple and youthful-looking.
Plus, you'll get expert advice about the products that complement your complexion so you can enhance your daily beauty routine and reap the long-term rewards.
