While the focus of most skincare routines is squarely on the face and maybe even the neck, there are a few other parts of your body that stand to benefit from a little TLC from time to time.
While most people are familiar with the benefits of a regular facial, it’s likely they don’t think about their back in the same way. But the truth is a back facial can help clean, tone, and exfoliate a part of your body that’s often forgotten or taken for granted.
And as we approach the height of the summer, you’ll also find that a revitalizing back treatment could help you pull off a backless top, a sexy dress, and of course, that swimsuit you’ve been waiting to debut.
What Is A Back Facial?
Performed by a licensed esthetician, a back facial, like the one offered by Milk + Honey, typically begins with gentle cleansing and exfoliation, which is then followed by extractions, a masque, and oil-free hydration.
Why Should You Consider A Back Facial?
It should come as no surprise that your back is susceptible to some of the same issues you may see on your face, such as acne, clogged pores, and dry skin. And if that weren’t plenty, if you’re feeling stressed or working too hard, your back will likely be one of the first places that tension tends to show itself.
Ahead we’ll take a closer look at some of the reasons you may want to consider a back facial treatment.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne affects up to 50 million Americans annually. Moreover, those who suffer from facial acne tend to suffer from backne as well.
So, if backne is an ongoing issue for you, a back facial can do a lot of the heavy lifting to deep clean and exfoliate your skin; plus, it effectively clears out clogged pores in those hard to reach trouble spots. With regular back treatments, you’ll likely see a reduction in acne and blemish-free skin over time.
Whether your skin is naturally dry or you’re dealing with it as a result of overexposure to the sun or even dry winter air, back facials can work wonders to restore your skin’s delicate balance. The procedure includes gentle exfoliation that sweeps away dull, flaky skin, and it’s quickly followed by moisturizing a masque and deep hydration.
Stress And Tension Relief
Back facials typically include a light massage of your neck, shoulder, and back; this, of course, deepens relaxation as it eases muscle tension and melts away stress.
When incorporated into your normal wellness routine, a back facial can certainly help you look and feel your best. Back treatments are ideal for treating backne and dry skin in hard-to-reach spots that are otherwise neglected. What’s more, they can help you relax, unwind, and recharge your batteries.
