The skin is your body’s largest organ and it does many things for your body such as protecting you from bacterias, harmful UV rays, and other environmental toxins. So why not show your skin some love by treating yourself to a facial treatment every once in a while? A facial treatment can help improve your complexion as well as address some specific skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. It’s also an awesome way to de-stress!

So how often should you get a facial treatment? 

Getting a facial is a great way to treat your skin, but the question is: how often should you get one? Many people think that the more treatments they have, the better their skin will look. This isn’t always the case though. In fact, even skincare professionals recommend getting at least one facial treatment per month. This is because our skin cell’s turnover cycle happens approximately every 28 days. 

However, the frequency of your treatment still depends on your skin issues and your esthetician’s recommendations. 

Post facial treatment skin care

Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your facial treatment and how to care for your skin afterward. 

Avoid going under the sun

As previously mentioned, after a facial, your skin will be sensitive, and exposing it to the sun will make it even more susceptible to UV damage. In order to avert this, apply  Hydrating Mineral Zinc Oxide SPF40 Sunscreen after a facial. 

 

Avoid wearing makeup

After a facial, your pores will likely still be open therefore it’s advisable for you to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours so you don’t end up with clogged pores. 

 

Moisturize 

Moisturizing helps create a protective layer and keep moisture locked in, making sure your skin is properly hydrated. If you need a moisturizer that provides better moisture retention, then Spalina Skincare’s Manuka Infused Lipid Creme is worth checking out. 

 

Hands off your face 

This is actually common skincare 101 because your hands can transfer bacteria to your face. This is especially more important to remember after getting a facial treatment as your skin will be particularly sensitive and picking at your face may lead to skin irritation and even scarring. 

 

Follow your esthetician’s advice

There are different types of facial treatments, and your esthetician will likely give you a set of instructions to follow and skincare product recommendations based on the treatment you got to help you achieve healthier skin.
