With increased outdoor activity and exposure to harmful UV rays, the summer months are among the most critical for protecting skin against damage and maintaining a healthy skincare routine. Of course, facials play an important role for maintaining total body care, especially during the summertime. 

"Achieving that desired summer glow we all strive for starts with setting a healthy skincare regimen," states Sheila Ullery, vice president of retail and merchandising at Massage Envy. Therefore, seeing a highly trained esthetician is an integral part of helping you to look and feel your best.

Regularly scheduled facials with an esthetician offer a variety of benefits for retaining the health and beauty of your skin, but it also provides many wellness benefits to consider, including:

Emotional Wellness: Estheticians are trained to guide relaxation and remind clients about the importance of taking time off for health reasons. Often, essential oils are used to moisturize the skin and relieve stress to encourage peace of mind and contentment.

Increased Circulation: Facial treatments help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers, increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to cells in the skin.

Anti-Aging: While there is no way to stop the aging process, regular exfoliation with professional-grade topical products can help to slow and even prevent the visible signs of aging. 

"Sun, sweat and other warm weather factors can change the needs of your skin quickly, and getting a facial from a trained esthetician can help you address the effects both during your facial treatment and with at-home care recommendations," said Dr. Howard Murad, M.D, FAAD, founder of Murad, Inc. and the Inclusive Health® movement. "Massage Envy's Murad® Healthy Skin line has provided high-performance skin care to millions of Massage Envy members and guests, and can benefit greatly for continued maintenance not only during the summer months but throughout the year." Their facial treatments include Environmental Shield® Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin.
