Have you ever woken up in the morning with your body feeling sore and sluggish? You look down at your hands and feet thinking that your cuticles are in need of attention… and as you pass a mirror you see that your dull skin is breaking out?
Often our hectic, daily lifestyles can begin to manifest itself through our physical appearance. Constant worrying about your mile-long, to-do lists can interfere with your sleep causing under-eye bags. Stress can cause inflammation of the skin such as acne, psoriasis, or eczema. Stress releases cortisol, which throws other hormones in your body off balance which causes acne breakouts on your face or body.
Then there are fine lines. Fine lines can occur when you are constantly making facial expressions, like frowning your brows when you’re stressed or pursing your lips which can lead to deeper wrinkles in those areas over time.
Between fine lines, acne, under-eye bags, and sore muscles, we don’t think any other reasons need to be given; however, below are the top 3 benefits of spending the day at the spa.
- Relieve Stress
The biggest benefit of going to the spa for the day is that you are getting a momentary relief from your daily and busy routine. Getting a deep-tissue massage will relax your tense muscles while lowering both your blood pressure and heart rate. By taking the time and taking care of yourself mentally and physically, you will leave the spa with the feeling of being happy, confident and surprisingly a little healthier. Unplugging from the outside world for a few hours will help you to relax and unwind.
- Slow down the aging process
As stated above, the stress of our hectic lifestyles can impact our appearance. Anti-aging treatments are designed to combat wrinkles, brighten up dull skin which all will leave you with a more youthful look. For long-term effects, a medical spa may be an even better option. The most effective procedures are not available at your average spa, as they can be performed only by board-certified personnel. Aesthetic clinicians or medical doctors who have received extensive training in the application and use of these procedures are the only persons you should allow to perform the treatments on you. In addition, these procedures typically require a sterile environment that meets medical standards, however, they are worth it depending on how much work you may need.
- A Boost of Confidence and Energy
Depending on the oils that are used while you are receiving your treatment, it can give you energy. Peppermint, lemon, orange and cedarwood are just a few examples of oils that are great for vitality and energy. Plus, leaving the spa feeling that extra burst of energy can give you a boost of confidence knowing you look and feel great.
There is a common misconception out there that all spas are the same. However, all spas are not created equal. Prior to visiting any spa you should research their procedures, who is administering their procedures, and assess their reviews. You can take it a step further and visit the spa before you opt to have a procedure done by the spa.
Liv Aesthetics Med Spa is one of the best spas to utilize, where you can frequent their establishment and feel satisfied with their services. Their ability to make even the most stressful person feel calm and at ease is what truly stands them out from the rest.
