We desire better looking skin when we invest in a facial and there are ways that we can help our investment both before and after with the way we care for our skin. Some of us go to into our spa service thinking that moment is all our skin needs, however the pre and post care is vital to the facial benefits.
Pre and Post Facial Care Tips
Pre-Facial Do’s – Drink lots of water as this will hydrate your skin and prepare it for the facial. Keep with your normal skincare routine so your skin therapist can see how your skin is on the daily.
Pre-Facial Dont’s – Don’t drink too much alcohol a day or two before as this will dehydrate your skin and thin your blood vessels that may cause an irritation as the facial takes place. Try not to use skincare with retina or retinol within a three-day window as these products may cause an irritation with facial products. Don’t eat oily foods within a two-day period.
Post-Facial Do’s – Drink lots of water as that will continue to keep your skin hydrated. Stay out of the sun if possible for the remainder of the day.
Post- Facial Dont’s – Try not to touch your face for the remainder of the day and not be tempted to irritate any acne that has been worked on by your therapist. Don’t take too hot of a shower or go into a spa/sauna for 72 hours. This will open the pores and may irritate your skin. Try not to wear much makeup if any at all for the rest of the day. Let your skin breathe and enjoy the natural glow!
