Getting facials is a staple of having healthy skin, and it’s easy to see the difference that it makes after you’ve had a few. While we do all the dirty work with your facials, there are some necessary steps that you need to take after having a facial in order to really reap the benefits. Make sure that the next time you get a facial, you follow it with the following.

Stay Hydrated

Hydration is important for your skin, regardless of if you’ve only just gotten a facial, or if it’s just another day. After a facial, you can count on seeing that beautiful glow for a longer period of time if you do drink plenty of water. When you drink plenty of water, you will see that your body is able to flush toxins out of your body. This usually results in a small breakout, but once you start keeping up with healthy amounts of fluids, you’ll see that your skin looks bright and clean.

Avoid Makeup

While you won’t have to avoid makeup for forever, it is usually good to stay away from makeup for a day or two. Facials provide your skin with the rush of cleaning that it takes to leave pores clean, and skin glowing. The last thing that you want to do when your skin is in this condition is put layers of makeup on top of it. Take a day or two off from makeup, and use this time to clean your brushes so that when you do put makeup on again, the brushes that you use are clean and gentle on your healthy skin.

Don’t Wash

When have you ever heard us say don’t wash your face? Well, this may be the only time that we will say it. Facials definitely offer a high-intensity cleaning process to your skin, and because of that, it’s good to avoid washing your face for the 24 hours following your facial. If you are someone that is pretty adamant with their skin care regimen, this could be difficult, but it will prove to be worth it. If you give in to even the slightest wash with soap and water, your skin could experience some intense irritation, so try your best to avoid it.

Try Not to Touch

The same with washing your face, do your best to avoid touching your skin so that it doesn’t break out. Your hands carry tons of germs, dirt, and oils that can clog up pores on your face and cancel out all of the benefits of the facial that you just had completed. For some, this is the most difficult part after the fact of a facial, but if you can hold off, you’ll see that your skin reacts much better to the facial.
