You’ve likely heard that rhetorical expression, “lipstick on a pig”, meaning an attempt to dress something up, right? We often spend our attention – and money – on a fabulous new wardrobe piece or an awesome accessory, but we neglect the one thing that everyone notices, and looks directly at in any interaction: our face, or more specifically, our skin.

 

No “lipstick”, i.e. cute new dress, fab earrings, or lush new makeup technique will ever do as much for flawless beautiful skin, as good consistent skin care will. And as one’s skin become healthier, you’ll find you rely less and less on cosmetics. A step towards that stunning skin is to make it a priority in your schedule and budget to get regular facials. It’s one of the best investments you can make for your skin.

Another step towards great skin is to maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it is also the last to get any nutrients from the foods you eat. So make sure the nutrients it does get are healthy ones.

Lastly, we’ve all become accustomed to a higher-stress, faster paced way of life, but we also pay a price for it. It’s important to engage in relaxing activities to reduce the stressor hormones in the body. When you come to Health and Style Institute for a facial, you get a double benefit: great skin care, and some relaxing “me-time”.

And through September 30, 2014, SAVE 50% off our Signature Spa Facial – as well as 50% off Full Color Services… Oooo-la-lah!! Call us today to schedule some time for yourself to relax and take that first step towards naturally beautiful skin! 336.885.3452, and see our full salon services menu here.

Facials are more than simply a bit of indulgence at the salon or spa. Sure, it’s great to be pampered, but getting a facial provides real benefits many aren’t aware of.

Relaxation
Almost every facial provides relaxation. Fruity smells, invigorating salts, enchanting music, and a variety of other components makes a facial one of the most relaxing things a person can do in a half hour. Depending on your taste, some facials may be more or less relaxing than others, but they all tend to get the job done. You will likely leave the salon feeling a bit less stress; less stress equals better health.

Appearance
A deeper benefit of facials is that they tend to change the look of the skin for the better. Your body’s skin cells are constantly dying and being replaced, and most people retain a layer of dead skin for most of the day. That extra skin is not only really gross, it’s also a source of clogged pores and acne.

 

A facial clears all that skin away, and actually takes the extra step of cleaning the living cells that you want at the forefront. Oxygen facials are said to help boost the growth of new skin cells, reducing any fine lines that might have emerged. Facials also stimulate the muscles of your face, making them tighten up, producing a younger, firmer look.

Advice
When you get a professional facial, you have the benefit of talking to someone who is an expert on skin and is devoting a considerable amount of time to your face. He or she can explain what skin type you have and how to best treat it. Some people ought to use oil-free makeup, others need an extra strong moisturizer. Only by talking about your specific skin type can you hope to make the best decisions for your face.

Regardless of what you hope to get out of it, a facial at the Health and Style Institute can help make you more relaxed, make your skin shine brightly with health, and reduce the appearance of unwanted acne.
