Facial at Home – Dos & Don’ts

Pampering yourself with a facial always seems satisfying and it surely is! We all love heading on to our favorite spa for a relaxing session but, in these times of adversity due to COVID – 19, it might not be a great idea to do that.

Well, worry not because getting a facial done at home is even more easy and beneficial. The best part is that you can do a facial at home with natural home ingredients without even having to spend a penny on chemical products.

More than just a pampering session, it is also more of a nourishing session due to all the benefits a natural facial provides to the skin.

Though at-home facials should always be a big YES, taking precautions and carrying out the facial with utmost care should also be a MUST

Before you start off with an at-home facial, make sure to get clarity on the dos and don’ts of a facial at home.

So, sit back on the couch and read through the full list of do’s & don’ts of a facial at home for beautiful and glowing skin.

DO’S

RULE #1- Always Stay Hydrated

This rule is a must after getting a facial done. The blood circulation of the body increases after a facial. Drinking a good amount of water at intervals will help to detoxify the skin making it glowing and beautiful.

RULE #2- Avoid Makeup For 24 hours

A natural homemade facial helps to remove all dirt from deep inside and provides the skin with nutrients. Putting on makeup immediately or after a few hours would stop the natural ingredients of the facial from soaking in. Avoid putting on makeup for at least 24 hours after a facial at home and let the skin breathe.

RULE #3- Avoid Going Out In The Sun

Sun rays can cause damage to the skin which has become sensitive after a facial. Avoid going out in the sun to protect your skin from the sun rays. In case you want to go out always apply the best sunscreen before heading out.

RULE #4- Keep The Skin Moisturized

It has been found out in a study that the skin repairs itself at night. Notch up your facial game by applying your favorite moisturizer before going to bed to see wonderful results in the morning.

RULE #5- Avoid Extractions

Though carrying out extractions during facial always seems pleasing, there are a few things that should be left onto the professionals. Not knowing the intricacies of how to do extractions could leave the skin damaged. Therefore, skip out the DIY extraction at home while doing a facial.

RULE #6- Avoid Rigorous Workout

Working out causes sweating. This might lead to skin irritation and infection. Skip the workout after getting a facial done for the next 24 hours.

RULE #7- Go  Clean

The pores of the skin are open after a facial. Usage of anything that is not clean might open the door for dirt to get into the skin pores and cause pimples and acne. Clean your makeup brushes and sponges. Use fresh & clean towels, pillowcases, and bedsheets to avoid such infections.

DON’TS

RULE #1- Don’t Touch Your Face

We often tend to touch our faces a lot without even acknowledging that the hands could be containing germs that might get into the pores of the skin and give rise to pimples and acne.

RULE #2- Don’t Exfoliate Immediately

Always exfoliate at an interval of 4-5 days. After a facial, you don’t want to scrub your face. Let the skin fully absorb in the nutrients of the facial before it gets washed off. The sensitive skin might get damaged on over-scrubbing. Try out a DIY exfoliant for smooth skin.

RULE #3- Don’t Do Any Beauty-Treatments

After getting a facial done, our skin becomes sensitive because it has been worked on. Getting any kind of beauty treatment done like threading, waxing, laser hair removal, etc. might cause more harm than any good to the skin. Try having a 2-week gap between a facial and any beauty-treatment.

RULE #4- Don’t Wash Your Face Often

During summer and monsoon, it might seem like a great idea to wash your face with normal/cold water for that refreshing experience but it can actually dry out the skin. Washing the face more than twice could wash away with it the nutrients of the facial too.

RULE #5- Don’t Take A Steam Bath

Taking steam increases blood flow because of the high temperature it provides to the body. A facial includes taking steam on the face, therefore, avoid taking a steam bath pre and post-facial. Too much steam could lead to inflammation and you should surely avoid it.

RULE #6- Avoid Picking At Your Face

Picking the face to remove any blackheads or whiteheads might seem satisfying but it actually isn’t. Squeezing or picking at your face will spread the bacteria all over and create a scar on the face. Therefore, avoid it.

A facial is part of our beauty and skincare routines but it is very important to keep in mind the dos and don’ts of a facial. Always carry out the process with safety to get soft, supple, and glowing skin.
