Facials have major benefits for your skin’s health as they remove impurities, promote new cell turnover and support your skin’s moisture barrier.
But they can be lethal if you don’t follow the dos and don’ts of after-facial instructions given by your cosmetologist. Let’s read on with us to know the details.
- Do’s after a facials:
The immediate effects of a facial typically last between five to seven days. During this time, skin looks and feels plump, hydrated and radiant. To extend your results, keep these aftercare steps in mind:
2. Keep skin hydrated:
Proper hydration is the key to maximizing the benefits of the facial. Be sure to drink lots of water afterward. Staying hydrated will prevent dehydration, flush out toxins and leave you with a healthy, glowing complexion.
3. Exfoliate weekly:
Always exfoliate at home as it will keep your skin soft and smooth as well as prevent oil and dead skin from building up and dulling your complexion.
4. Vitamin C:
Use vitamin C serum to protect your skin from free radicals. Free radicals can damage the skin and cause an eruption of pimples after the procedure.
5. Don’ts after a facial:
While there is plenty of good you can do for your skin after a facial, there is also the potential to do some damage.
6. Don’t visit the steam room:
Your skin has already been exposed to plenty of steam during your facial, and adding on could lead to irritation and breakout.
Your freshly scrubbed skin is particularly prone to sun damage and its vulnerable surface can easily burn. Moreover, exposing your skin to the sun puts you at risk for melanoma and accelerates the development of fine lines and wrinkles. After a facial, always apply a sunscreen to minimize potential damage.
8. Hair removing:
Don’t undergo wax, laser or razors for hair removal. It can cause some serious skin diseases like Majocchi Syndrome.
9. Avoid use of at-home peels:
Don’t use at-home peels or retinols immediately after a facial. Take a break of at least 21 days for a safe time.
