Why get an exfoliating facial?
Regular facial exfoliation is key to any skincare regimen. Exfoliation eliminates the dead surface skin cells and oil that plug sebaceous pores—the leading cause of blackheads, whiteheads, and other acne flare-ups—and leave skin dull and listless. Exfoliation is particularly important if you live in a place (particularly in a major urban area) that is highly exposed to pollution and other air contaminants, or if you have problematic skin. Benefits to exfoliating are endless, from everything from improving complexion and increasing blood circulation to preventing breakouts and reducing fine lines and wrinkles to stimulating cellular renewal. Plus, with proper exfoliation, you’re apt to see an immediate change in your skin. So there you have it. Slough away.

If you can, you may want to have your spa schedule several exfoliating facial sessions along an extended period of time—these particular types of skincare services are especially effective when performed in a series. If you do indulge in an exfoliating facial, it’s also important to note that initial redness may also result.
