Going for a facial treatment is often deemed a pampering session that one can only indulge in once in a while. But contrary to popular belief, regular facials are necessary to improve and maintain the skin’s health to slow down ageing and prevent acne breakouts, among a host of other benefits.
There are also many reasonably priced beauty centres in Singapore offering facials with top-notch service and high-quality products, so there is no need to worry about burning a hole in your pocket.
Not convinced? Here are six good reasons why going for regular facials is recommended.

1. Deeply cleanse and exfoliate your skin
Be honest with yourself and ponder about how often you put effort into cleansing and exfoliating your skin – do you rub the cleanser all over your face for just a few seconds and rinse it off or do you only exfoliate once every few months? These habits can cause dead skin cells, sebum and dirt to build up in your pores over time, clogging them and causing acne to surface.
If it is a lack of knowledge on how to care for your skin or because of laziness, going for regular facial treatments will transform your skin. Treatments like extraction facials often include deep cleansing and exfoliation that will do wonders for your complexion.
2. Slow down signs of ageing
While ageing cannot be stopped completely, there are ways to slow down the process to preserve your youthfulness for as long as possible – regular anti-ageing facials are one of the easiest options.
High-tech machines and effective skincare products used by estheticians target specific concerns like fine lines, wrinkles and age spots so that visible results can be seen. Pair these with facial massages that are often included in the treatment and the end result is lifted, brighter and younger-looking skin!
3. Improve or maintain skin’s health
Regardless of whether your skin is in tip-top condition or could use some help, going for regular facial treatments ensures that your skin’s health gets maintained or improved so that you achieve your goals.
A basic facial is perfect for maintenance if you seldom have acne, but more specialised ones like extraction facials, oxygen facials or microneedling facials are great for targeting problem areas and ageing skin.
4. Destress and relax
Apart from skin benefits, getting regular facials done is a good opportunity for you to kick back and relax to destress from your hectic daily routine.
In case you did not know, stress hormones also known as cortisol, can prompt the skin’s sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, resulting in inflammation and clogging of pores. Thus, managing your stress levels is important for healthy and supple skin.
5. Improve the absorption of products
With regular deep cleansing and exfoliation, dead skin cells get removed and no longer form a barrier between your skin and skincare products, allowing creams and serums you use to penetrate deeply beneath and work their magic.
Hence, regular facial treatments are important to ensure both your money and effort put into upkeeping your complexion does not go to waste.
6. Lighten acne scars or pigmentation
Lastly, consistency is key when it comes to lightening pigmentation and acne scars. Some treatments like chemical peels and microneedling facials are good for improving the appearance of dark spots, but of course, will require a few sessions to render long-lasting and visible results.
Going for a facial once every month is a good rule of thumb to follow – speak to your esthetician for personalised advice.
