Top 10 Reasons to get a facial From Relax! Massage Therapy & Skin Care

  1. Lowers Stress Levels
    Stress can be a factor in many skin and overall health issues. Studies show that facials significantly reduce anxiety and negative feelings by activating the parasympathetic nervous system which helps us to feel calmer and also treat the causes of stress activated skin issues.
  2. Improve Blood Circulation
    When the blood vessels under your skin have poor circulation, it shows on your skin because nutrients are prevented from reaching your skin tissues. Facials increase this circulation, allowing blood to reach the surface of your skin, delivering nutrients and aiding in the development of collagen and elastin which keep your skin firm, plump and young looking.
  3. Prevents Skin Aging
    Our all natural, cruelty free products include anti-oxidants which fight free radical damage, and cell regulators which have been shown to increase college and elastin and slow the development of sagging, dullness, fine lines and wrinkles and more. They can also reverse the damage done by the sun over the years, which is significant on most of us, especially here at the beach!
  4. Exfoliation
    All of our facials include a deep exfoliation process which means getting rid of the dead skin cells on the outer surface of your skin. Because your skin is always regenerating, the old cells eventually rise to the surface and die. If you don't have them removed, they will cause your skin to look, dull, dry, rough, and can increase the depth of wrinkles as well as cause acne and blemishes.
  5. Tighten Up
    As we grow older, the skin on our face begins to appear looser and less defined. It is common to lose elasticity as the synthesis of collagen slows down with age. Facials will increase your cellular turnover, as well as increase your production of collagen and elastin which will help to firm and tighten your skin.
  1. Detoxify
    Our facials include manual lymphatic drainage which helps to remove toxins and help purify and regenerate tissues. It is imperative that this system remains healthy and well functioning for good health and beautiful skin.
  2. Increased Absorption Abilities
    Monthly facials prep your skin to absorb other products more evenly and effectively. Exfoliation, steam and warm towels have all been shown to increase the absorption rate of skincare products. Facials are the first and most necessary step to getting the most out of your home care routine.
  3. Hydration
    Lack of hydration can cause a multitude of skin and health problems. Aging causes dryness and many people with skin issues such as acne are afraid to moisturize which actually causes more skin and health problems. Our estheticians are trained to discern the root cause of your particular skin issue and to recommend a protocol which is personalized for you.
  4. Treating Eye Areas
    Many of us have concerns with dark circles, puffiness and crows feet. The area around your eyes will thank you for getting monthly facials. These areas will be treated with expert care by a trained professional, using quality products making you look younger, less tired and ready to conquer the world!
