By monitoring your skin condition on a
regular basis, an esthetician can spot

changes in your skin before bigger
problems arise. And as part of the
service, your skin care professional can
recommend take-home products that
will help maintain optimal skin health
between facials. Your practitioner will
also teach you how to use them. Many
product lines have regimens that need to
be followed carefully, so be sure to ask
questions if you're not clear about your
home skin care routine.

Facial Frequency
We replace our skin cells every 28 days
or so. A monthly facial helps remove
dead cells on the skin's outer surface,
along with pollutants. When the face is
rid of these dead cells, the skin has a
much easier job of growing new ones. By
nourishing the new cells with the
appropriate moisturizers, we can
maintain healthy, glowing skin.

In some cases, facials are required more
often for best results, or you might
supplement your treatments with home
treatments. Discuss the optimal
frequency of your facials with your skin
care professional.

                                             Men can greatly benefit from facials, as daily shaving can exacerbate skin conditions.
