Facials are like workout for your skin! Your face will definitely look firmer, younger and smoother.
Factors that can damage the skin are: impact of the sun’s heat or UV rays, smoke, dust and other environmental factors. Facial treatment can remove those excess dirt and oil that can lead to acne breakouts. Even though you’ve already received facial treatments, what’s even more important is maintaining the effect.
Here are some tips to retain that natural glowing skin:

Avoid the sun as much as possible
After receiving the treatment, the skin is more sensitive as it is. Harmful UV rays can easily penetrate the skin causing damages and even scarring. Make sure to bring an umbrella or a cap so the face will be protected from the sun.

Avoid touching the face
After the treatment, the face feels smoother and softer, which is very delicate to touch. But since the pores are open even after the treatment, dirt and bacteria from your hand can easily transfer to your face and enter the open pores which can cause breakouts even infections.

Avoid putting makeup after receiving the treatment
As much as possible, refrain on putting some makeup, even if it’s just loose powder. The particles of the makeup can cause blockage to the pores and if blocked, the face will not be able to absorb the treatments. Don’t worry, it’s only about 12 hours after the treatment.
