Aesthetics is the study of the skin and the body whereby health and beauty is ideally preserved for an individual, using techniques, tools, and products. Facials and body treatments tend to include an analysis of the skin, followed by a series of cleansing methods of the skin, exfoliation, a facial massage, steam and a cream or moisturizer
According to the New Life Journal's "A Facial: it's More Than Meets the Eye" by Julie Pagano, facials regulate the immune system, aid in detoxification, reduce the amount of fluid that has built up in the body, and aid in stress relief .
There are a variety of facials that can provide many health benefits. Anti-oxidant facials contain free-radical fighting nutrients such as Vitamins A and E, which help remove pollutants from the body. When a person is struggling with acne, suffering from a dull complexion, or facing a superficial skin issue, regular facials can help fix these problems. Facials can give a person a clean and bright complexion, as well as remove dirt and blackheads.
