You may have noticed that for a while after your facial treatment, your skin is smooth, glowing and healthy. After the first week or two, it returns to the dull surface which you thought you had gotten rid of weeks before.
It’s common among everyone who gets a facial treatment, and is why one facial is never enough to overturn aging, care for sun damage, and take away dead skin cells.
However, there are ways to expand the benefits of your facial and make your glowy skin last for more than a mere week or two.
Skincare experts propose some easy to follow precautions that help in prolonging your facial results.
AVOID TOO MUCH SWEATING
After a facial, it’s important for the serums and oils to be in your skin for longer period of time. This lets them heal your skin and improve the results. Excessive sweating will flush out these ingredients hindering the skin healing process. This is the reason experts advise avoid going to the gym, having a steam, sauna or partaking in any other activity that can cause you to sweat a lot.
STAY AWAY FROM EXFOLIATION
Exfoliating is a vital part of facial treatment, which means you don’t need to use scrubs or other exfoliating products after a facial. Over-exfoliation can lead to irritation, dryness, and breakouts. Keep yourself from exfoliating your skin for about a week after getting a facial.
DO A FACIAL MASSAGE
When you apply skincare products, make sure to massage them into your face gently. Facial massages help to increase lymphatic drainage and circulation, which brings nutrients and oxygen to your skin – this gives your skin a youthful radiance.
AVOID MAKEUP & SUN EXPOSURE
Your skin after getting a facial is soft, fresh and glowing, which takes away the need to put any makeup on. The ingredients in your makeup can harm the effects of your facial – this is why you should avoid the application of makeup for a few days after a facial. You should also avoid sun exposure because the harmful rays can damage your skin. If you need to go out in the sun, apply sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF.
When your skin is hydrated, it lets the skin cells heal successfully. After a facial treatment, drink plenty of water. Stay away from dehydrating food and drinks such as caffeine, alcohol or foods high in sugar or salt; this will spoil the hydrating benefits of your facial.
HAVE A HEALTHY SKINCARE ROUTINE
To enjoy a long lasting facial glow, follow a healthy skincare regimen. Wash and cleanse your face daily to keep impurities and dirt away. Use a good moisturizer to moisturize your skin and stay away from dryness.
Using these tips will guarantee that the results from your facial last longer and your skin stays healthier until your next appointment!
