What should you avoid doing after a facial?

If you’re anything like me, you love getting facials. There’s just something so relaxing and satisfying about sitting in a chair while someone massages your face with calming ingredients. However, there are a few things that you should avoid doing after a facial to get the most out of your experience. Keep reading to find out what they are!

Suppose you have acne or dermatitis on your face. In that case, it’s best to give the skin some rest before applying products containing alcohol or other active ingredients so they can rebuild their natural barrier layer in peace.

You should also avoid non-comedogenic oils such as mineral oil – these sit on top of pores and block them, causing more congestion. If you use facial oil, go for a liquid that penetrates dry skin and doesn’t leave a greasy film behind.

It is generally recommended to avoid applying makeup, getting your hair colored, or having your nails done. All these activities can stress the skin, which needs time to recover after a facial. You should also stay away from sun exposure for 24 hours. To reduce redness and puffiness, you can use an ice pack on your face for 20 minutes after treatment. After this time, if there are no signs of irritation, discontinue the ice pack and resume regular activities. Some salons will offer you eye pads post-facial that help reduce swelling around the eyes. These should be left for about 15 minutes or until they fall off naturally then discarded. Always remember to follow any instructions given by the technician performing your facial.
