Everyone, regardless of gender, should get a facial. Yes, facials are not just for women so let’s get this one myth out of the way. Getting a facial is, above all, about hygiene. Cleaning your skin should be your top priority and part of your beauty process. Let’s be real, going to a spa or a dermatologist to get a facial can get a bit expensive so how often you go is truly based on what you can afford. It is recommended to get a facial once a month but, again, because of the price, you should try to go at least every two to three months. Think of this as an investment in yourself. And yes, think of the pampering part, too.
Let me be very honest, if you get an European style facial, like the ones I usually get, you will hurt a little bit. The extraction of all that yucky stuff in your face can be a bit uncomfortable. But trust me, it is so worth it. After removing all the dead skin and black heads, your face feels extremely smooth. You will notice that when you apply make up, the skin absorbs the products easier and everything looks better. The glow you get is undeniable!
After putting off getting a facial for so long, I decided to go to a Brazilian friend’s spa and get the facial my skin so desperately needed. Ahhhhhh, you have no idea how good my skin feels and looks. Go ahead and try it. You will love the result. If you are in Atlanta, I highly recommend my friend’s spa, Brazilian Body Wax in Dunwoody. If you go there, ask for Alessandra and tell her Simone from Cool N Chic sent you and you’ll get 10% off. Happy facial!
