True story: I heard a rumor back when I was in high school that if you get a facial, your pores will be forever opened and you’ll just constantly need facials and have breakouts. After struggling with acne-prone skin (in lieu of facials) beginning when I was 14, I made the plunge and tried my first facial about a year before my wedding. I was 27. I struggled with breakouts for 13 years before I went for my first facial. Maybe the rumor is true for some people, but for me, facials are a part of a regular skin care regimen for me and I want to walk you through all the questions I first had and a few others I’ve heard along the way if you’re curious about the process of a facial, the benefits of spa facials and the issues they can alleviate.
