Facials are great for giving your skin a boost, but how can you make sure that the effects last? Here are some tips to get the most out of your next facial treatment.
1. Keep it clean. When is the last time you disinfected items you're in close contact with?
If you’re going to receive a facial, it’s important to disinfect any objects that could come into contact with your face afterward, such as your pillows or your phone. You don’t want any bacteria transferring onto your face!
2. Drink PLENTY of water.
Your skin can’t function properly without the water that hydrates it. And it can’t take in all those good-for-it ingredients if your pores are clogged. So, even if you’re used to relying on a mask or a serum to infuse your skin with life-giving hydration, you need to be sure to drink water throughout the day.
3. Avoid the sun.
4. Avoid using active ingredients for 48 hours.
5. No hot water on your face.
The key to getting the maximum benefit from a facial is to allow your skin time to absorb the products. You may be tempted to wash your face immediately after a facial, but you should try to resist this urge. If you do, you risk washing away the wonderful products that your skin has just absorbed.
