Face Care – Essential Tips

Facials are one treatment that will make you either fall in love with them or hate them. Hopefully, you will fall in love with them, as they can provide some extraordinary results when done right. However, as with everything else, their success is not solely reliant on the skills of the stylist taking care of you – but also on your own efforts and knowledge. Here are a few things you should be aware of before you take the plunge and get your own facial:

  • Let the beautician know what products you use – you might believe that the beautician is making small talk when asking you about the products or regimen you go through, but the truth is that the type of products and how you take care of your face can affect the procedure of your facial treatment Perth. As such, it would be in your best interests to answer as truthfully as possible when you are posed with this question. If keeping in mind the names of the products is too much of a hassle for you, you can always jot them down on a paper before heading out to your appointment, or better yet, snap a few photos of them to show to the professional.
    • Medication – certain types of medications can clash with certain types of beauty services, and such is the case with facials. The beautician (or most likely, the receptionist before booking your appointment) will ask you of any medication you are taking. Varieties that have a thinning effect on the skin can negatively affect the results of the facial, and you will be recommended to discontinue their use for at least three full months before getting a facial.
      • Timing – there are many different types of facials, and since there are different types of individuals in the world, there is no guarantee that one type of facial can have a negative result on you. As such, unless you have previously done a type of treatment on your face, it is ill-advised to go through one the previous day (or worse yet, on the day itself) of a significant event, such as a wedding or the like.
        • Avoid waxing or shaving – in the few days prior to your facial, and in the few days after it, it is recommended to steer clear of shaving, waxing and other hair removal procedures on your face. Such procedures right before your facial can increase your skin’s sensitivity and cause stinging, itching or tingling during the facial, whereas doing so in the few days following the facial can cause micro tears on your skin or breakouts as well.
