26 Oct How To Maintain Your Skin’s Glow After A Facial Spa Treatment
Do you have an upcoming facial spa treatment? If so, you may be wondering how to maintain your skin’s glow after the treatment??? D&M Treatments has provided some tips below so that you can keep the results of your facial spa treatment for as long as possible!
The Importance Of Regular Facial Spa Treatments
If there’s one thing most people want in their lives, it’s a beautiful complexion that radiates health and youthfulness. Unfortunately, our skin often takes a beating from things like stress, pollution, poor nutrition, and chronic illness—and this can cause premature ageing of the skin or even more serious problems like acne or atopic dermatitis.
This is why regular facials are so important: they cleanse away dirt and bacteria, remove dead skin cells, and stimulate the skin to promote a healthy glow. In addition, facials can also reduce acne breakouts, help ease tension lines on the face, brighten dull skin tone, smooth fine lines, and wrinkles, or even remove scars from those who have been dealing with acne for a long time.
So if you’re interested in maintaining your skin’s glow, we have provided some tips and tricks below that you can follow after your facial appointment!
What To Do After The Treatment
After your facial spa treatment, it’s important to take steps to maintain the look of your skin. Here are a few pointers that could help you out:
Keep Your Skin Hydrated
It’s very important to keep your skin hydrated after a facial. You can do this by applying moisturizer or even drinking more water! Try keeping a water bottle with you throughout the day and drink whenever you feel thirsty—you may be surprised at how quickly your body becomes dehydrated without realizing it.
Less Is More
When it comes to facials, less is more when it comes to post-facial hygiene. Always avoid using harsh cleansers or face scrubs for at least a few weeks after your facial—this can lead you to strip away the healthy skin that was just replenished! If you must remove makeup before bed, we recommend using a gentle cleanser that won’t irritate your skin.
Go Without Makeup For A Day
If your face is red from the treatment, you might be tempted to hide it with cosmetics. Your pores are more open than usual and are susceptible to germs. Taking a break from cosmetics will allow the products to be more effective. But don’t worry too much: the next day, you may resume your normal cosmetic routine, but make sure your brushes and applicators are clean as well.
Don’t Pick At Your Skin
Touching your face is actually not a good idea as your skin is particularly delicate after a facial. Though it’s tempting to squeeze pimples and blackheads, keep your hands off—there’s a reason your facial specialist didn’t pop them. Picking and popping at your skin may cause additional discomfort and scarring, which is the exact opposite of what you are striving to achieve.
Reschedule Your Workout
If you didn’t get the chance to work out before your facial, you might be tempted to squeeze it in right after, but wait at least a day. The increased heat in the skin and sweat during a workout can irritate your newly exfoliated skin. If you must go to the gym, though, it is strongly suggested that you do it before your facial spa treatment.
Stay Out Of The Sun
At the absolute least, you should cancel any plans to sit by the pool after your facial—unless you’ll be hiding behind a big-brimmed hat the entire time. Your skin is more susceptible to the sun’s harmful rays after it has been exfoliated. After a few days, you won’t have to worry as much about your skin reacting adversely to the sun, but every day, regardless of whether you’re in Calgary or Miami, you should use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
Eat Well And Get Plenty Of Rest
Your skin is going to look better after a facial—but only if you follow some good habits on the outside. Working out, eating right, and getting enough sleep are essential for healthy skin. So before you get your next facial, consider making these changes in your routine that will keep your skin from looking dull again.
