    has anyone had a facial? Why am I asking that, I'm sure someone/many people have....What do they feel like? Are they worth the time and money, etc.
    Your experiences with facials? Thanks guys....Have a great day/night icon_biggrin.gif

    I've had several over the years. As a teenager, my acne was bad and Mother took me for facials somewhat irregularly to try to help. They did.

    As an adult I will occasionally have a facial in the spa on a cruise ship. It's more of a spoiling yourself accompaniment to a massage. The facial therapist should be trained in how to deal with differing skin conditions on your face. They almost always (at least, the ones on the ships) try to sell you products to use on your own between regular facial treatments

    I used to get acne facials at the spa my parents went too to help clear up my skin. They worked.

    But be careful, I know of alot of people who had perfect skin, went to go get a facial to relax, and came out with uncontrolable acne and some ended up having to go on accutane to clear up their skin. Be careful on where and what type you choose.

    I don't think they are worth it.

    Use a buff puff in the shower and a good skin care regimen including a moisturizer. If you go to a gym, take in steam in the steam room.

    I think the reason why women like them so much is because they get pampered; women's smooth skin is due to estrogen.

    Chemical peel facials are a little different, they slough off the superficial layer of skin to reveal fresh shiny new skin. Consider doing one of these before the prom, a wedding, or other event when you want your skin to glow. But the effects are temporary, in a week or so, your skin will go back to being dull again.

    (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH A DERMATOLOGIST-ADMINISTERED CHEMICAL PEEL WHICH CAN TAKE A WEEK OR TWO TO HEAL BECAUSE IT REMOVES MORE LAYERS OF THE DERMIS) -can be used to smooth complexion from acne scars, wrinkles, etc.
