Facials can work wonders on your skin, treating wrinkles, fine lines, dryness, and other common issues. However, it’s essential to follow skin care rules between appointments to make the most of these treatments. Below are some best practices to follow and common mistakes to avoid to achieve healthy, glowing skin.
Keep to your regimen.
An esthetician will recommend a skin care regimen for you, with products that are designed for your skin type. Stick to that prescribed regimen every morning and night, and never skip a day. Take the products with you if you travel, and you’ll always maintain your skin’s natural barrier against dirt and debris, keeping it healthy and beautiful.
Your body’s hydration has a direct impact on your skin’s health. Like your other organs, your skin needs water to function properly. Drinking plenty of water will help your skin maintain its moisture and elasticity, keeping it soft and preventing wrinkles.
Attempt DIY extractions.
Blocked pores may occur, even when you’re getting facials to remove acne. However, never pop pimples or blackheads on your own. Always leave blemish extraction to your esthetician. Otherwise, you’ll damage your skin and potentially cause permanent scarring.
Expose skin to the sun.
Your face is exposed to the sun every day while you’re outdoors. Many people only put sunscreen on while at the beach or pool, but you should apply it every day. Wear a hat if you’ll be in the sun for more than a couple hours, and wear at least 30 SPF daily. This is especially important in the 72 hours following your facial when your skin is particularly sensitive.
