Why Winter is the Perfect Time to Get a Facial

In Blog by Achieve Wellness Spa

Much like getting a massage or visiting your dentist, facials are best when they are performed regularly. At Achieve Wellness Spa, we believe facials are essential to your overall wellness and encourage our clients to book their facials once per month, especially in the middle of winter!

Alberta is especially dry in the cold winter months and it shows! Our skin is affected by so many elements daily, a large portion coming from the cold, dry climate of our environment. Facials not only alleviate some of these problems, but can also prevent them from surfacing in the future.

While leaving your cozy house to head to the spa may be one of the last things you feel like doing on a cold day, waking up from hibernation to treat yourself will definitely be worth it!

Since our skin is the largest organ of our body, it’s so important that we take extra care of it (year-round)! Here’s a few reasons why:

Say Goodbye to Sad, Dry Skin

Nobody wants dry, cracked skin. Regular facials are a great way to add moisture to your

skin when the humidity is lacking. Dry skin causes dead skin cells to build up. Facials provide a deeper exfoliation than you can achieve at home.

Get Your Glow On

Don’t have the glow you usually do thanks to old man winter? Facials decrease waste underneath the skin that can cause puffiness, ruddiness, and fluid accumulation. The needs of our skin are different in the winter than in the summer.

Your skin needs to eliminate the waste it accumulates on a regular basis. If it doesn’t you are more likely to breakout with blemishes and unwanted acne. With a dry climate and cold weather, your skin is working overtime just to keep-up. A skin detox is necessary during the winter months and a facial is an excellent way to ensure your skin is on it’s A-game.

Leave It To The Experts

Basic at-home skin routines are a good starting point, but often during winter, they’re not enough. At Achieve Wellness Spa, our professionally trained estheticians will not only provide you with an excellent in-spa treatment, they can advise you on the proper products you should be using at home for optimal skin health.

Winter can be a very harsh time on your skin, and regular facials are a key component in protecting yourself against the elements that contribute to skin damage and premature aging. Book your facial at Achieve Wellness Spa today.
