Let’s Face It!
We all love regular facials. They leave your skin looking and feeling its best, but depending on the facial you get, you may not see results asap. Directly after your session, you may notice redness even with a gentle treatment, and post-facial breakouts are a common when skin doesn’t receive the care it deserves. Here’s how you can minimize redness, blemishes and discomfort after your facial.
Over-scrubbing and harsh cleansers can leave skin that’s already undergone exfoliation feeling irritated so make sure you give your face a break from vigorous scrubbing for at least 48 hours after your session.
WASH WITH THE RIGHT PRODUCTS
When it’s time to wash your face, choose gentle cleansing agents. Use your fingertips and wash with lukewarm water. Forget the toner for the first few washes after your facial; the ingredients in toners aren’t needed for your freshly cleaned face, and they could sting.
SWITCH YOUR SUNSCREEN
Limit your time spent in the sun after a facial because some chemical exfoliations can leave skin more photosensitive. If are going into the sun and you normally use a chemical sunscreen, you might find it uncomfortable for a few days after a facial. Bottom line, you should use sunscreen everyday.
BE ESPECIALLY TENDER WITH YOUR SKIN AFTER EXTRACTIONS
Extractions are sometimes necessary for clearer skin in the long run, but they leave your skin vulnerable afterwards. Avoid using makeup applicators on your face or touching your hands to your skin too often following a facial that includes extraction.
The key to getting the best possible results from facial treatments is setting a schedule. Skin loves routine, so develop a post-facial regimen that leaves your skin healthy and happy.
