Are Facials Really Vital for Healthy Skin?

We often get asked: “Are facials really necessary for me to achieve healthy skin?”. As your local skincare experts, we say YES!   

While reading this, we bet you’re thinking: “There must be other ways to get healthy skin, facials are so troublesome!” 

Although facials are not the most convenient or economical thing to incorporate into your life, but much like anything worth having, consistent effort and investments are required.  

Let’s use the analogy of achieving a healthy body to show you why facials are vital for healthy skin.

The Fundamentals of Health: 

At this point, we are sure you’ve heard about the various complex and odd ways you can get healthy. However, for you to achieve a sustainable level health, the following equation should be followed: 

Balanced Diet + Regular Exercise = Healthy Body 

One of the fundamental methods is to watch your diet: having a healthy and well-balanced diet can do wonders for your journey to a better state of health. But a healthy diet does not simply mean cutting out all carbs or eating fewer calories. A healthy diet requires finding out what you’re fueling your body with and ensuring that it’s whole, natural foods.  

Similar to your diet, a good skincare routine shouldn’t be focused on using the best products on the market for the sake of it or adopting a 10 step Korean skincare routine. Your skincare should be designed around your lifestyle and consist of products that are good for your skin; products that include skin-loving ingredients that will nourish and protect your skin.

But what about the second fundamental: Regular Exercise? 

Although you can get healthy with just a balanced diet, it is not enough. Regular exercise has been proven to boost your body’s metabolism, immune system, strengthen your bones and muscles, and reduce the likelihood of developing chronic diseases. However, those benefits only come with regular exercising. The consistency of your exercising matters just as much as your diet. Don’t let the effort you put into your diet go to waste by exercising infrequently. A healthy diet when combined with regular exercise, allows you to achieve a healthy body at a much faster rate. 

Applying the same concept, if you add “exercise” for your skin on top of a solid home skincare routine, you will be able to tackle skincare woes and achieve healthy skin that radiates from within.  

Wait, What? How do you “Exercise” your Skin? 

We’ve been talking a lot about exercising and drawing parallels to your skincare. But what does exercising your skin mean? The phrase “exercising your skin” conjures up odd images in your mind but it’s not what you think it is! Instead of stretching and pulling your skin in various directions to achieve a facial exercise, there are other means – like a facial!  

Nowadays, facials are more than just a simple cleanse and masking with a gentle facial massage. A facial at Porcelain entails an intensive session between our highly trained therapists, medical grade equipment and in-house formulated products that will harmonize perfectly to give you healthy and brighter skin. 

With advanced technologies, products used during the treatments are able to penetrate deeper into your skin and show greater efficacy than what you can achieve with basic home care. For example, in our Proionic Treatment, we make use of a unique patented 448kHz long wave radio frequency Spanish medical technology to stimulate your collagen and elastin production in addition to improving the skin’s natural ionic equilibrium. Emerge out of the treatment room to visibly tighter, lifted skin that is also stimulated deeply for long-term anti-aging effects. Does that sound like something you could get at home? 

In addition to the technology, expertise and quality of products used, we aim to make your journey to healthy skin easy and sustainable. The reason why many plans for better health fail is because they are a “one-size fits all”, implemented directly without considering their lifestyle and body’s needs.  

An infallible plan for better health is one that is thoughtfully designed to integrate into your current lifestyle and customised to your ever-changing needs. That’s why at Porcelain, all our therapists and ambassadors are trained to be your lifelong beauty partner, accompanying you through the evolution of your skin with customised service and treatment plans.
