Why Facials Are Important In The Winter

January 7, 2017

The truth is that winters here in Pennsylvania can be brutal. Cold, wind, ice, snow – it all piles up. While many of us love the outdoor adventures we can have in the winter, it can be a hard time for our skin whether we choose to be outside or in. This is where a salon facial comes in.

Even if you were to never set foot outside at all for the entire winter season, your skin would still show the effects of it. Central heating dries out the air indoors, and that in turn dries out your skin. If you do venture outside, cold winter air also has a drying effect on skin and the sun still beats down with those UV rays, especially when they reflect off the snow.

Fortunately, a good salon facial can combat both the indoor and outdoor effects of winter. The basic processes of the treatment – deep cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing – work together to correct any existing issues your skin may have. Deep cleansing will target any specific problems you may be having such as breakouts or fine lines. Exfoliation is especially important in the winter because drier skin doesn’t release its dead skin cells as quickly. And the moisturizing elements of a salon facial go well beyond anything you can duplicate at home. Together these steps will not only correct your skin’s current concerns, but they’ll also form a protective barrier to prevent new issues from arising.

And let’s be honest; a facial is just plain relaxing. After a stressful holiday season, who wouldn’t want a reason to sit back with our eyes closed while a professional aesthetician works some magic? If you feel good, you’ll look that much better too. And having the undivided attention of a skincare technician will help you make better decisions about products and routines for your skin going forward. It’s a win-win situation.
