Facial Aftercare Tips
To maintain the glow gifted by a moisturising facial, there are a few tips and tricks to follow that can both minimise irritation in the immediate aftermath of the facial and promote long-term skin health and radiance long after the treatment is over.
To reduce any skin irritation following a facial, be sure to avoid any further treatments (especially those that include exfoliants, scrubs and acids) for at least 48 hours. As pores are opened and cleansed, this also applies to strong sunlight, humid heat sources (such as saunas or facial steamers) and makeup, as the skin needs some time to relax, settle and breathe.
For longer term facial aftercare, the most important tip of all is to drink lots of water and eat plenty of hydrating vegetables that help to flush the toxins from the skin. It’s also worth having a discussion with the expert therapist who conducts the facial, as they will be able to recommend the perfect products to suit all different types of complexions, meaning the routine can then be replicated at home for continued results.
