This year’s biggest makeup trend is the no makeup look – fresh, naked faces glowing beneath a bright blue sky, or the silvery moon. Combine it with a natural hairstyle and a pop of bright lipstick, and you’re good to go just about anywhere. That is, if your skin is in tip top shape. That’s why it’s more important now than ever before to make sure you’re giving your skin all the TLC needs by opting for a salon facial.

You may wonder why summer is such a great time for a facial what with all of that fun in the sun, swimming and sweating you’re probably doing. The answer is that those are precisely the reasons why facials are such important components of your skin care arsenal during the warmer months. Your skin is exposed to the elements more often and for longer periods of time during the summer, and you’re likely to have a much more active lifestyle at this time, too.

Professional facials are tailor made to address issues of sun damage and sweat-clogged pores, and they can be customized to meet your skin’s individual needs. Summer facials tend to focus on making your skin more resilient through the use of antioxidants and deep hydration. And no matter what time of year it is, a facial will always a fantastic way to promote circulation and deliver more life-giving oxygen to your skin cells.

The only word of caution that comes along with a summer facial is to be aware of your sun exposure for the first day or two following your treatment. Those newly exposed skin cells are generally more sensitive to the sun, and being extra vigilant with your sunscreen is a good idea. But of course, if you’re focused on good skin care, you’re already using a high-quality sunscreen on a daily basis, right?
