A spa facial can be one of the best things you can do for your skin. Having a qualified aesthetician treat and evaluate your skin can do wonders for your complexion and the overall health of your skin. But it’s important to take care not to undermine the great results a professional spa facial can produce.
Pay attention to your skin
After a facial – even if you get facials regularly and from the same place – you need to wash your skin for any changes or reactions that may be cause for concern. After all, our skin changes over time, and the products and treatments that were once safe and effective may become irritating. Never be afraid to contact your aesthetician if you have any questions or concerns. Not only will she be able to help you address those concerns (or simply ease your mind if it’s a common reaction), but she’ll be able to make a note for your next treatment, as some changes may be required.
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to keep it hydrated. Drinking plenty of water – no need to go overboard – certainly helps. Drinking plenty of water can help flush toxins from your body – including your skin.
Heed the advice of your aesthetician
There’s a reason they’re the professionals. You may not want to purchase the recommended products at the salon or spa – but you should inquire about other options. After all, if you go back to your normal skin care routine, despite the recommendations of your aesthetician, you may be undoing the positive results of your facial. There is almost always a way to follow your aesthetician’s advice without breaking the bank. Even though they may rely on product sales to help the salon’s bottom line, a good aesthetician wants your skin care routine to give you the best results possible – and they will offer recommendations for alternative products.
Most importantly, RELAX
A facial is a spa treatment for a reason – not only is it great for your skin, but it also helps your overall relaxation.
Try to avoid scheduling your facial before strenuous activity, like running a 5K or spring cleaning. If you can, give your skin a break from the makeup for a day or so – after all, you don’t want to clog those clean pores.
Keep your skin in tip-top shape between facial appointments
A great way to keep your skin facial fresh is to use Bel Mondo’s Bio Cellulose Sheet Masks between spa visits. Bel Mondo line of masks address multiple skin issues – and your aesthetician can give you guidance on which one would be best for you. Best of all, you can recreate that calming spa facial experience for 20 minutes in the comfort of your own home (or hotel room, or even in your car).
