So, you just had a luxurious facial at The Skin Company, and your skin feels absolutely fabulous. But how do you make sure that glowing, refreshed feeling stays around? Fear not, I’ve got your back (and your face!). Here’s everything you need to know about maintaining that post-facial glow.

Scale back to the basics.

Your esthetician likely recommended a skincare routine tailored to your skin type, and you’re probably so excited to get started using all of your new products! However, your skin will be sensitive immediately after your facial. It’s important to take a day or two off of the exfoliating ingredients and scale back to a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen.  Maybe you can throw in a hydrating serum like the Nourishing HA Peptide Serum or a rebalancing toner like the Epionce Purifying Toner. No matter what products you use, keep it simple and give your skin time to heal. After the first 1-2 days, you can start to reintroduce your regular routine. Once you do, stay consistent! Your daily skincare routine makes the biggest impact on your overall skin health and is the key to maintaining your skin between facials. However, read for a few other tips and tricks to encourage healthy skin.

Stay hydrated.

Hydrated skin is happy skin. Make sure to drink plenty of water after your facial, and keep it up in the days and weeks after. This will help flush out toxins and keep your skin plump and fresh. You can also incorporate hydrating foods, such as fruits and vegetables, into your diet. This will not only benefit your skin but also your overall health! Eating a diet rich in whole foods will support your skin’s health and boost your glow.

Wash your sheets and change your towels.

Take the time to change your sheets once a week and change your towels daily.  Your skin is sensitive and vulnerable after a facial. Your sheets and towels come into contact with your skin daily, so keeping them clean is important. Try to change your sheets at least once weekly and your pillowcase more often if possible. Your pillowcase is picking up oil from your hair, hands, arms, and body and sharing it with your freshly washed face! Changing your sheets and towels regularly will minimize the risk of any breakouts or irritation.

Schedule your next facial.

The best way to maintain your post-facial glow is to schedule another facial! Your esthetician will be able to help you figure out how often you should be coming in for facials based on your skin type and needs. Plus, regular facials can help to keep your skin healthy, prevent breakouts, and reduce signs of aging.

So there you have it, folks – everything you need to know about maintaining your skin after a facial. Follow these tips, and you’ll be able to keep that dewy, refreshed look going for weeks to come. And if you’re due for a facial (or just want an excuse to treat yourself!), make sure to book an appointment at The Skin Company. Your skin will thank you for it!
