Before & After Your Facial
Although facials are “come as you are” treatments, there are a few things you can do beforehand to make sure you get the most out of your treatment.
• Think about your specific skincare concerns and goals, and be ready to share them with your aesthetician. It’s important to be honest about your habits.
• Be gentle to your skin in the days leading up to your facial. Avoid strong exfoliants and sun damage.
• Consider the timing of your facial. If it’s a new treatment that you’ve never had before, give yourself a couple of “buffer days” between your appointment and a big event.
• After your facial, there’s no reason to avoid any of your usual activities. However, you might consider altering your nightly routine to include only gentle cleansing and moisturizing, since using toner or an exfoliant can be irritating. Your aesthetician can recommend gentle skincare products for you to use during this time.
