Not only are they both great ways to relax, but facials and massages also have excellent health benefits. Do you know how good they are?

A good skincare system and an easy to maintain stress-relief system are both essential to maintaining your quality of life. Sometimes, though, you run into problems that require professional treatments to properly fix. There are countless benefits to getting regular facials and massages, so we're going to give you the top reasons!

Facials Reduce Wrinkles

Removing the top layer of skin allows more evenly textured skin to come to the surface. This makes wrinkles and fine lines less prominent on the face. Treatments like a HydraFacial and anti-aging facials can also cause collagen production to pick up. This restores skin cells, further defending against wrinkles.

Massages Help Eliminate Migraines

Recent research found that those who suffer from chronic migraines actually report fewer migraines and better sleep after beginning massage therapy. If you suffer from migraines, you have the perfect excuse to get regular treatment!

Facials Unclog Your Pores

Oil, dead skin and dirt can clog up your pores, causing them to be more visible to the human eye. Regular facials with extraction, a chemical peel, or a chemical peel and microdermabrasion combination can help your pores breathe a little freer and keep them decongested.

Massages Can Make You Look Younger

Massage stimulates blood flow, which makes your face look healthy and more radiant. The gentle rubbing and kneading can help lymphatic drainage and adds vitality to a dull complexion.

Facials Can Soothe Sensitive Skin

Facials can help calm and soothe the skin from conditions like rosacea or overly treats skin. These treatments can include facials with calming masks and even laser facials. Sensitive skin treatments will help rejuvenate your skin.

Massages Can Help With Chronic Pain Relief

If you suffer from chronic pain (arthritis, disc problems, fibromyalgia) there's a decent chance that just a few sessions of massage therapy can give you relief. The general results are overwhelmingly positive -- as someone with a family member who struggles with chronic pain, I can attest to the fact that massage therapy really works.

Facials Make Your Daily Care More Effective

Facials remove the gross dirt and other clogging particles from your skin. This allows your regular daily skincare products like moisturizers, creams, and lotions to be more easily absorbed, meaning they'll be more effective in the long term.

Facials and Massages Can Help Fight Cancer Side Effects

Research shows that chemical peels and other facial techniques help prevent skin cancer. They do this by treating precancerous conditions like actinic keratosis, an early stage of squamous cell carcinoma. Similarly, patients with metastic cancer reported better sleep, less pain and an overall improved quality of life. Massage therapy has also been found to reduce pain, nausea, depression, stress, and fatigue.
