If you’re tired of the negative effects that chemical-based facial cleansing products can have on your delicate skin, you’re not alone. Millions of men and women are moving away from those products and adopting natural alternatives. Of course, natural facial care at a professional spa can be a key part of any skin care strategy! In fact, you may already have a facial scheduled at your favorite spa. If so, here are five things that you should avoid before your next natural facial.
Ah, the joys of hanging out in the sun. Solar rays can leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Still, all that sunshine also leaves your skin a little sensitive to even mild cleansers. As a rule, try to stay out of the sun for at least one day before your next natural facial treatment. That will help to ensure that it’s as healthy and ready for action as possible, and reduce the risk of irritation or other sensitivity.
Some people never pop pimples or remove blackheads. Others do it almost religiously. If you fall into that latter category, you might want to give it a rest for at least several days prior to your appointment. Your esthetician will be spending some time focusing on any acne-related problems, and your efforts could prevent the job from being done properly.
Lash extensions are wonderful, and many women rave about the experience. As a rule, though, you should avoid getting them within one or two days prior to your facial appointment. Why? Because they’re not supposed to get wet after being applied, and your facial could destabilize the still-setting adhesive used to secure the extensions.
Chemical Cleansers and Exfoliants
Our advice is to never use those rough chemical products. If you can’t resist, though, at least avoid them prior to your natural facial care appointment. Like the sun and other external factors, chemical cleansers and exfoliants can leave your skin vulnerable to irritation, rash, and other complications.
We love a good waxing, but there’s a time and place for everything. If you want to get your face or brows waxed, make sure that you do it at least one full day prior to your facial care session. Waxing removes outer layer skin cells, and that can lead to sensitivity. Even with the gentlest of natural facial care products, your skin may still respond poorly if it’s already suffered that trauma.
