Have a Facial

Facials can actually clear your pores.

"A professional treatment will fully cleanse your skin in a way that you simply can't at home," insists Dr. Marko Lens, a dermatologist and founder of skin care brand Zelens. "Think about it this way," offers Kate Somerville, founder of the eponymous beauty brand, "You brush and floss your teeth twice daily, but you still need to go to the dentist a few times a year for optimal health." Facialists normally utilize a safe and gentle steam to really open your pores and allow them to breathe. It's a don't-try-this-at-home kind of cleansing.

If something's wrong, you'll find out why

"Your skin changes over time depending on age, weather, and even hormones," Somerville explains. "It's a good idea to have an expert who can help you address those changes, identify skin conditions, and educate you on how to treat them." If you have great skin now, don't trust that it will last forever! For example, lots of girls suffer from eczema in the winter and simply blame it on dryness. Not treating a serious condition can lead to long-term skin damage!

It's better than the beauty counter

You know when you go to a beauty store and someone tells you what to buy based on looking at your skin under fluorescent lighting? That's not how we should be purchasing things. "A knowledgeable, licensed esthetician will provide personalized skin recommendations and a regimen that will address your individual concerns." The best way to know your skin is to examine it, cleanse it, treat it, and then assess it. Once you're on a great regimen, the esthetician will update it by season. It's like having your own concierge!

Confidence is key

"I struggled with eczema for years," says Somerville, "and I've seen every skin concern imaginable in my clinic. I know exactly what it's like to regain skin health and feel confident. You should feel comfortable in your own skin!"

So what's stopping you? Find a spa near you and get to relaxing! You'll be glowing in no time.

You'll find your happy place

"Facials are so much more relaxing than a DIY," says Dr. Lens. In fact, Berthelot uses a mix of high frequency, massage, and hot towels to maximize the pampering experience! Everyone knows stress can cause skin issues, so a facial can cure any breakouts and give you reason to take a few deep, cleansing breaths.
