In today’s fast-paced world, it’s quite difficult to set aside time for yourself. However, it’s important to pamper yourself every now and then and it’s also important for the sake of your skin, which can deteriorate due to stress.
According to Well Being Secrets, it’s been shown that stress can be a factor causing acne (as well as a range of other skin disorders, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, erythema, and alopecia aerate).
But why take a facial? They’re not just a treat — facials are an excellent choice because they give you a much-needed chance to relax and calm yourself. They consist of a thorough massage, which can give your skin a well-deserved pick-me-up. A study conducted in the User Science Institute in Japan reported the results of a 45-minute facial massage (including hydrating cream and steam treatment) on women aged 20 to 40.
The study showed that facial massages significantly reduce anxiety and negative moods.
During the massage, parasympathetic nervous activity is activated, which helps you rest and slow down.
The authors concluded that “these results suggested that the facial massage had strong effects on stress alleviation, or psychological relaxation”. In another study conducted in India on women aged 17 to 63, the majority reported feeling fresh and rejuvenated after getting a facial (3).
