The acne facial can indeed improve your skin dramatically. But if you want the results to last long, you have to follow the aftercare religiously. One of the reasons why the results of an acne facial in Singapore do not last long is that people neglect post-facial care.
Acne will appear sooner than they expected. It will only lead to frustration and another facial treatment.
Here are the things you need to do after your acne facial:
1. NO MAKEUP FOR A DAY
Avoid applying makeup six hours after your acne facial. Much better if you keep your face bare for the first 24 hours.
Being makeup-free allows the skin to ‘breathe’ and absorb the serum and essence applied to your face during the acne facial. Also, dirty makeup brushes can infect your fresh and raw skin, especially right after the best extraction facial in Singapore.
2. DON’T PICK THE SCAB AND DEAD SKIN
Sometimes scabs may form after the treatment. The skin may peel as well. It is tempting to pick and remove the scabs and dead skin, but as much as possible, avoid this because this can cause further irritation and may even lead to infection.
After your acne facial in Singapore, your dermatologist or doctor may recommend applying moisturiser or hydrating creams to soothe the skin and speed up healing.
3. AVOID THE SUN
Avoid stepping out in the sun after your acne facial. Your skin is still raw, thin, and vulnerable to UV ray damage. When going outdoors, make sure to wear a cap or use an umbrella to cover yourself from sunlight. Avoid being in the heat, in general, such as sunbathing or going to the sauna, on the first two days of acne facial aftercare.
4. DON’T UNDERGO ANOTHER SKINCARE TREATMENT
If you just underwent an acne facial, avoid undergoing another facial promotion or other aesthetic treatments on the face such as microblading.
As mentioned, your skin is still raw. Give it ample time to heal first before taking another treatment. Moreover, the second treatment may have a contradicting effect on your initial treatment.
5. NO SMOKING AND ALCOHOL DRINKING
Cigarette smoke has particles and impurities that can clog your freshly treated face. Besides increasing the risk of infection, it can also cause acne, beating the purpose of your acne facial.
On the other hand, alcohol quickens your skin’s ageing, also defeating the purpose of getting a facial treatment.
Proper aftercare has many benefits, such as maximising positive results and preventing complications, including infections.
