A Scope for Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is on the rise so it continues to become increasingly important to regularly check your skin for changes to moles and to look out for abnormal skin growths. Usually these changes are so subtle and develop at a slow pace so over time you may not notice what’s going on. A benefit of having a professional esthetician work with your skin is that he or she will analyze your skin and bring to your attention any potential skin abnormalities that they feel you should check out with a medical doctor. An esthetician can be viewed as a new set of eyes that may notice skin imperfections that you have been blinded to, over time.
For example, years ago I had a client who had a dry patch on her nose and no matter how much she moisturized, it wouldn’t go away. From studying skin all of these years, I knew that skin cancer does not always evolve and take shape from a mole. Skin cancer can be as simple as a rough, dry patch. I advised her to get it looked at as soon as possible. The small dry patch of skin on her nose ended up being skin cancer that caused her to have the lower part of her nose removed. She continues to thank me to this day because, although she still faced a challenge, we caught it before it could spread further. This may not have been a successful outcome if it wasn’t for her getting a facial with me.
Aside from the various skin benefits facials offer, they are also extremely relaxing and immediately de-stress you both physically and psychologically. Imagine a room with dim lighting, soft music, and a warm, comfy bed. Then add on a face, neck, and shoulder massage. This is the ideal environment to completely relax and unwind, and it is the general description of a basic facial. Studies show that stress can lead to unhealthy skin, so what’s a better way to eliminate stress and promote healthy skin, than a facial? Schedule so me-time for yourself.
Whether it’s dry skin, brown spots, redness, irritation, or inflamed acne, a good facial is always customized to focus on what your skin needs to help solve your skin problems. For example, if your skin is prone to brown spots and discoloration, your esthetician will use skin brightening or lightening treatments. If your skin is dry then he or she will use lipid increasing ingredients to repair your skin’s protective barrier to reduce dryness. Facials are always geared to problem solve and the level of your facial’s intensity is contingent on the severity of your skin’s problem. By using the right combination of ingredients, estheticians can really create change in the skin to improve your skin’s appearance to achieve your greatest complexion.
During a facial, you are with an esthetician for over an hour. This creates an opportunity for the esthetician to give you their professional advice, skin tips and tricks, and plenty of time to ask questions that you have been curious about. Part of getting a facial is receiving a lesson from experts on how to care for your skin properly. This lesson includes which products will work best for your skin type and you will learn how to care for your skin at home so you can maintain the results of your facial.

Humans tend to spend an exceptional amount of time caring for the other people in their lives. While this can be rewarding, at times it can be mentally exhausting. Take just a couple of hours to yourself to do something that you won’t be required to share with anyone else. A facial is just for you and will give you time to re-energize and clear your mind. Nourish your soul and pamper your skin in just a few blissful hours at the spa.
