How Often Should You Get a Facial?

By April 6, 2007

Follow me on:

The other day a woman came to see me with extremely dry, reddened skin. It turned out she had spent a fortune in products that weren't right for her, and was getting facials every two weeks. "Why are you getting facials every two weeks?" I asked her. "That's what my esthetician says I need," she replied. I was appalled. Here was a woman trying to do the right thing, and her esthetician was being totally unethical. She was having her come in too often, just to make some money off her. So how often should you have a facial?

Well, it depends. If you have acne or a lot of blackheads or whiteheads that need to be cleared out, then once every week or two is not too much until your skin has improved. Once you're in maintenance mode, every four to six weeks is ideal.

The most important thing for this woman, who was over-exfoliating, was get on the right products to soothe and calm her skin. She also needed to find a new esthetician who was more concerned about her well-being than just making a quick buck.

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of
the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
