Facials require not only a commitment of funds but also of time, and so a lot of people are wary of getting them before they sign away 3 hours of their afternoon. Should you get a facial?
The short answer: it depends.
Personally, I agree with many of you in that it’s hard to relax for a whole afternoon and just get a facial when there is so much else to do in one’s day. I would rather get a half-hour quicky massage and do more in my afternoon. I would rather go to the gym for 2 hours than sit in a facialist’s chair. But hey, that’s just me.
The truth is that facials can be good but only if you can commit to getting them on a regular basis. They can definitely alleviate severe dryness and can be quite relaxing. I once had a facial so great, that I felt asleep in the chair!
Furthermore, if you have a lot of blocked pores, a facialist can help clear those for you.
I would say that the best thing about getting a facial is that you’re seeing a skincare expert on a regular basis and so they can make sure that you’re taking care of your skin and using the right products for your skin conditions. If you have ongoing skin problems, a facialist can be a huge help for you. I love Dermalogica facials.
