All I want for Christmas is….. Facial!

5 reasons to Gift a Facial for Christmas

If you’re thinking of what to get your sister, mum, friend, girlfriend or maybe looking to treat yourself for Christmas, a great gift idea is a facial treatment!

The nasty fact of the cold winter months is that it is awful for your skin in almost every way. For women of all ages and skin types, winter causes havoc and exacerbates any issues they already have.

Thankfully there are numerous facial treatments to help their skin look good as new.

  1. Treat Dehydrated Skin

In the winter your skin is exposed to a lot of dry air. It happens when you’re outside in the cold, as the low temperatures leave little moisture in the air. It also happens when you’re inside with heating systems.

Some facial treatments are great for specifically rehydrating your skin. Facial peels, for example, can include nutrients and hydrating treatments for your skin to help moisturize them. You can also use treatments that use microdermabrasion or ultrasounds with hyaluronic acid serums. 

2. Restore Damaged Skin

Sometimes your skin doesn’t get dried out by the winter, but actually gets damaged due to extreme dryness or exposure to harsh, cold winds. If you notice that your skin starts to become chapped and extremely dry, a good facial treatment can help restore the face to look fresh and smooth again.

Microdermabrasion treatments are great at removing the top layer of skin that is dead and damaged, and you can then request repair treatments that use essential fatty acids, collagen, lipids and peptides to restore the new, exposed layer.

3. Smooth Out Lines & Wrinkles

Another issue with the dry, harsh winter conditions is a lack of oxygen in your skin. The dryness and reduced air causes your fine lines and wrinkles to be more obvious and visible. Thankfully, there are facials specifically to rejuvenate skin with anti-aging treatments.

Nappage Mesotherapy, for example, consists of micro-injections using a tiny needle and syringe that deliver microscopic quantities of traditional pharmaceuticals, vitamins, minerals, growth factors, biomimetic peptides and amino acids into the skin to target specific conditions providing instant hydration and radiance.

Facial peels use natural acids and chemicals to remove the lines, inconsistencies, and discoloration from the top layer of your skin. It leaves your new layer of skin looking smoother and younger, and uses nutrients and hydration to make sure it holds that younger look!

4. Treat Winter Acne Breakouts

On top of everything else, dry winter conditions also make acne worse. The harsh air strips your skin of the surface lipids and other protective nutrients your own skin usually generates. This makes it a lot easier for bacteria to get into your skin and cause breakouts.

If you know someone who hates having to deal with acne in the winter, you can get them facial treatments that specifically treat acne. Mandelic and Azelac Peel kills the bacteria in your skin, followed by extractions to remove the acne. EstGen treatment which is a  healing and protective treatment to make sure acne don’t come back.

 5. Gift A Treat!

Best of all, facial treatments make people feel much better. The dark, cold days can really get people’s moods down, but a day at a beauty salon getting a facial treatment can help them relax for a little while. Afterwards when they see their skin problems are gone, they get to feel and look happy too!

Gifting a Facial for Christmas may just be what the receiver needs to treat or restore their skin during cold temperature lows or to simply enjoy a much-needed day at the salon.

Merry Christmas,
