One of the best acts you can do for your face is to give it a facial from a professional salon. This skincare treatment includes things like exfoliation, massage, steaming, extraction, etc. The process is designed to remove impurities, remove dead skin cells, and promote healthy, glowing skin. However, there are dos and don’ts after a facial that you need to be aware to extend the results of the process.
1. Don’t Sunbathe
We all love to get out in the sun, but after the treatment, it’s imperative for you to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays and that includes in the winter. Your freshly treated skin is especially susceptible to sun damage and could easily burn. Going out in the sun after the treatment also puts you at higher risk of skin diseases, such as melanoma. However, most of us need to leave our homes for various reasons, whether it be for work, errands, picking the kids up from the school, going out with friends, etc. Therefore, always apply a moisturizing sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30 to prevent damage. Your professional esthetician can recommend a quality product.
2. Do Hydrate
One of the most important things to do after the treatment is to keep yourself hydrated. That means you should drink lots of clean, fresh water afterward to flush out toxins and leave your complexion glowing. Aim for 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, spread out throughout the day.
3. Don’t Wear Makeup for 24 Hours
You love to wear makeup, but you’ve just received a wonderful, cleansing treatment. This is the perfect opportunity to let your skin breathe and take in the results. So do your best to avoid wearing makeup for the next 24 hours. If you refuse to go to work without makeup, for example, schedule an appointment for a time when you don’t have to go to work, such as during the weekend.
4. Do Follow Your Estheticians Advice
After your professional skincare treatment, your esthetician will send you home with care instructions and will encourage you to keep up with skincare treatments. This is your opportunity to work with your esthetician to develop a customized skincare routine that keeps your face looking good not just temporarily but for the long haul.
