A Complete Guide to Facials - 3 Things To Avoid Before & After A Facial
Life can be tough. From time to time, it deals us sleepless nights, cluttered minds, tired muscles and creaky joints. The stresses of daily life take their toll in a variety of ways; but did you know that the condition of your skin can be one of the most tell-tale signs of stress your body shows on the outside?
Life can be tough. From time to time, it deals us sleepless nights, cluttered minds, tired muscles and creaky joints. The stresses of daily life take their toll in a variety of ways; but did you know that the condition of your skin can be one of the most tell-tale signs of stress your body shows on the outside?
No matter how your skin reacts to stress, the message it is trying to send you is usually the same: we need a break. A relaxing and rejuvenating facial could be just what you need to give yourself, and your skin, a much-deserved treat.
Here are the things you will need to take note of before or after your customised facial with Apple Skin Care:

What Should You Avoid Before Facial?

  1. Discontinue chemical exfoliators. About 3 days before your facial appointment with Apple Skin Care, stop using any products that consist of chemicals like Retin-A, Glycolic Acid, and Lactic Acid.
  2. Don’t use any facial products in morning. Keep your routine light on the day of your appointment. You can wash your face with a simple cleansing product, but leave out any other products after cleansing.
  3. Don’t wear makeup. Makeup can clog your pores and will have to be removed before the procedure anyway.

What Should You Avoid After Facial?

  1. Don’t wash your face that night. Your skin needs a chance to relax. Your facial will have left it quite clean, so there’s no need to wash your face before bedtime.
  2. Don’t put makeup on for a while. Avoid makeup, at least for the first day. You can use it after that, and why not take this as an opportunity to flaunt your new, glowing skin.
  3. Avoid exfoliating for a few days. This is especially true if your facial has deep exfoliation.
