Avoid Sun Exposure
Although it might be difficult in the city of near-year-round sun, it is important to limit sun exposure in the days leading up to your facial. Sunburn or excessive sun exposure can make your skin more sensitive and prone to irritation during the facial.
Communicate with Your Esthetician
Communication is key in the lead-up to your appointment. Inform your esthetician about any skincare concerns, allergies, or specific issues you want to address during the facial. They can tailor the treatment to meet your needs.
Avoid Exfoliating Products
This is similar to the sun exposure rule – refrain from using exfoliating products, retinoids, or harsh skincare treatments a few days before your facial. These products can make your skin more sensitive.
Staying hydrated is always important for good skin care, but before having a facial this is even more true. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your facial. Hydration is essential for healthy skin, and it can also help your skin recover more quickly from the facial treatment.
Cleanse Your Skin
Cleanse your face thoroughly on the day of your facial to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils. This allows the esthetician to work on clean skin.
Avoid Caffeine and Other Drinks Which Can Cause Dehydration
Steer clear of excessive caffeine and other drinks which can cause dehydration before your facial, as they can affect your skin quality and the results of your facial.
