Facial treatments leave your skin sensitive for about a week because your aesthetician thoroughly exfoliates your skin.
Despite the several benefits of retinoid products, they also make your skin sensitive. Using retinoids could damage your skin after a facial, reversing the intended effects of the facial treatment.
As mentioned above, facials deeply exfoliate your skin to clear all the debris that’s been lingering on your face.
However, the removal of dead skin cells leaves your skin vulnerable to damage from UV rays. Heliocare 360: Water Gel SPF50 is a good example of a broad spectrumSPF that protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Contact your aesthetician to determine what SPF strength is appropriate for your skin.
This includes microneedling, dermaplaning, lasers, fillers, waxing and threading. After having your facial, it’s important to have some downtime and allow your skin to breathe.
Having more than one treatment disrupts the healing process and actually does more harm than good for your skin.
Exfoliating your skin too often will more than likely destroy your epidermis, the protective layer of your skin. This can also lead to irritation.
Avoid exfoliants and instead use moisturiser to hydrate and nourish your skin.
Much like retinoids, sun exposure and UV radiation will cause your skin to become more sensitive after a facial.
The sun can cause irritation, and depending on your sensitivity, it can actually damage your skin in the long run.
