Tips on Extending the Life of Your Facial
When it comes to facials, our team at The Hair Studio is as busy as ever! With winter well underway, many of you are experiencing dry, itchy skin. Although it’s recommended you have a facial at least once a month to maintain the optimal glow, these cold New England days warrant a little extra TLC! As Google’s favorite “esthetician near me,” we’re here to help you look and feel your best!
One of the most frequently asked questions concerns the length of time facial results will last. While there is no guaranteed answer to the question, the immediate healthy glow typically lasts around five days. Sure, this may not seem like very long, but there are several steps you can take at home to extend this timeframe.
In this article, we’re looking at a few reasons why you want to schedule a facial today and how to get the most from your treatment.
Common reasons to schedule a treatment
Let’s start by discussing why everyone needs facials. Below are a few of the common issues that bring the young and old, women and men to visit our team:
- Age spots
- Sagging skin
- Dry, itchy skin
- Dull and lifeless color
Beyond the physical aspects of a facial, people also enjoy treatments before an event. Sure, this goes back to the physical aspect but receiving a treatment before a wedding, for example, will ensure your skin is looking fabulous for the big day.
How often should you receive treatments?
As mentioned, our experienced estheticians recommend receiving a facial at least once every three to four weeks. This regular plan helps keep your skin looking its best! However, treatment plans are as unique as yourself! So, when you meet with your esthetician, she/he may suggest an alternative plan suited for your specific needs.
Things to do at home
We can bring your skin back to life, but what you do at home is just as important. For starters, you want to be washing with a cleanser meant for your skin type and targeted concern. While purchasing the cheapest option that smells amazing at the local drugstore may be tempting, we don’t recommend this! This is your skin, and it deserves only the best! Again, your esthetician can help you with professional recommendations based on your skin type and concerns. Beyond the correct cleanser, toners, masks, and moisturizers are a must as well!
But, that’s not all:
- Drinking plenty of water keeps your skin hydrated and looking its best.
- Applying sunscreen when heading outdoors (even in the winter) is always a must.
- Skip the concealer for a few days to let your pores breathe.
- Leave those breakouts alone! No picking, poking, pulling, prodding, etc. … your blemish is off limits.
- Avoid exfoliators, scrubs, and other treatment products for a few days after your treatment.
