It’s officially summertime and we couldn’t be happier to go out and make the most of this beautiful weather. Every day counts during this time of year. What you may not know is that summertime is also a great time to receive facial acupuncture treatments.  Here are some more details on how facial acupuncture treatments will make your summer feel even brighter!

What happens to your skin in the summer?

In the summer, your skin is exposed to a variety of different elements: UV rays from the sun, chemicals from improper sunscreen, chlorine from the pool, and allergic reactions from certain plants . All of these factors have the potential to wreak havoc on your skin.

How facial acupuncture improves your skin during the summer

Facial acupuncture is a full body treatment that helps to restore the appearance of any skin problem that can arise during the summer.

  • Facial acupuncture improves the look of your skin in the summer

If your skin is dry from a heat rash or overexposure to chlorine, facial acupuncture can help hydrate and replenish your skin. Facial acupuncture treatments can boost your blood circulation and improve muscle tone. If you want that summer glow, facial acupuncture can provide that for you in a natural way. You may not even need to use bronzer for your beauty routine!

Although facial acupuncture treatments start at the face, you will experience the benefits all over the body. Because of that, you may notice that your skin’s appearance has improved everywhere.

  • Facial acupuncture helps you feel great on the inside during the summer

Aside from the external benefits that facial acupuncture provides in the summer, there are a number of internal benefits that facial acupuncture can provide.  Facial acupuncture has the capacity to restore feelings of relaxation. If your allergies or allergy medications are making you feel sluggish and drowsy, facial acupuncture can help you to restore your energy or qi. You may also notice that you sleep patterns are disrupted from the heat and the extended daylight hours. The increased production of endorphins that come from facial acupuncture will help you to relax and have a better night’s sleep in the summer. In addition, facial acupuncture can prevent the buildup of toxins in the body. This can be especially helpful if there’s been changes to your diet in the summer. These changes, whether good or bad, can disrupt the system. When you meet with me for a treatment, I can offer some dietary solutions to help complement your sessions.


With our skin being the body’s largest organ, it’s very important to take extra care of it all year. While enjoying various activities in the summer, make sure to keep the quality of your skin in mind. Facial acupuncture will help you look and feel great this summer so that you can make the most of every day!
