Make Your Post-Facial Skin Last Longer With These Tips

Getting a facial can be relaxing, rejuvenating, and hydrating. Not only is it a great self-care habit, but it’s also amazing for your skin and gives you a little break from your day-to-day tasks. You will love your post-dermatology Delaware skin after just one visit to Premier Dermatology! While post-facial skin won’t last forever, you can make it last longer! Try to do the following for a few days to a week after your Premier Dermatology facial to help your fresh, new skin stick around:

Avoid Touching, Picking at, or Putting Anything on Your Face

Your hands and phone contain bacteria, dirt, and oils that can clog up your newly-cleaned pores. Your skin is also more sensitive because of it, so touching your face can cause irritation and redness. Limit the number of times you or something else comes in contact with your face for a day or two after your facial. Also, make sure you have clean pillowcases and towels to use.

Use Lighter Cleansers and Skip the Makeup Routine

Because your skin just went through a deep clean, it could use a break from your normal skincare routine. Premier Dermatology, a professional dermatology Delaware practice, can help answer any questions you may have about post-facial care. However, a good rule of thumb is to avoid harsh cleaners, any masks, at-home treatments, and retinol altogether for at least a day or two post-treatment. They can cause irritation and redness in your already sensitive skin.

Makeup can clog up your pores even without a facial, but especially post-facial. Your skin was just deep-cleaned by an experienced dermatologist, why would you want to cover their hard work with makeup? For a day or two after your facial, avoid putting makeup on as much as possible, no matter how tempting it is! If you get a facial before a specific event, get it at least 5-7 days before. Then, by the day of the event, your skin will still look good and you’ll be able to wear makeup and give your face a good washing after!

Skip the Workout

If you like to work out daily, make sure you do so before your facial. Exercising after you get one can cause irritation, breakouts, and more clogged pores. You should also skip the workout the day after to make sure your skin has time to heal.

Stay Out of the Sun

The sun’s UV rays can be extremely harmful to the skin. Post-facial skin can be more sensitive to the sun. To avoid severe burning and irritation, take a break from the beach and sun for about 5-7 days. If you have to be in the sun for a while, wear a wide-brimmed hat and stay in the shade as much as possible.
