Ever wonder how a facial makes us happy? Those are two words we don’t always put together. But did you know facials actually DO promote happiness? Other than the obvious benefits of healthy and cleansed skin, regular facials can actually promote an increased level of well-being. Let’s take a look at how.
Science of the Facial
Around our face we have a ton of nerve endings. These nerve endings are really sensitive spots that trigger a lot of sensation in our face. When we have been staring at a computer for a while or really focused on reading something, we tend to clench our jaw a lot. Additionally, we furrow our brow and tighten the area around our eyes. When we tighten these areas, we develop tension. This tension normally causes as painful headaches and migraines. One way to reverse this tension is to stimulate the nerve endings on our face to get a sensation of “release”. Furthermore, during a facial, we tend to get a scalp massage as well. The pressure on our scalp muscles also aid in the release of the tension we build over time.
As we feel our face and scalp release the tension, we feel an overall sense of relief. Excess tension is no longer stored in our face and our scalp. Our nerve endings feel more awake and alive. These sensations can promote feelings of calm and happiness.
