Ahh! Nothing beats a relaxing, professional facial that leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and beaming with a healthy glow. I recommend getting a facial once every 3 months or a minimum of 4 times a year if possible. Regularly checking in with an expert allows you to proactively maintain healthy, youthful skin. If you’re struggling with breakouts or perhaps fighting flaky dryness, a professional facial can restore balance and set your skin on the right path. Touching base with a licensed pro also allows you to seek advice from an expert and target specific results. Let’s not forget, facials are very relaxing and an excellent way to de-stress and give you, some YOU time and probably much needed TLC.
When getting a facial, try to remember at the very end (in your uber relaxed spa daze) to ask your esthetician if there are any post facial instructions you should follow. Depending on what treatment you had done you may need to avoid exfoliating for a few days or weeks, or need to increase sun protection and in some cases avoid sun exposure all together. Professional peels and treatments like microdermabrasion and laser therapies can leave your skin in a sensitive state, requiring specific post care.
Now, to maintain that “facial feel” every day, commit to a morning and evening routine and stick with it. You want to cleanse, apply serums, moisturize and always protect the skin with sunscreen. Consider using the Perfect C Serum every morning to protect your skin’s health while combating the signs of aging by strengthening collagen and diminishing uneven skin tone. Humans do not produce Vitamin C so it needs to be incorporated into everyone’s diet and skin regimen.
Give yourself that spa experience by creating treatment nights in which you exfoliate with a scrub or peel, and to really boost results, follow with a facial mask. By exfoliating 2-3 times per week, you can increase cell turnover which in turns softens your skin’s texture. Soothing, restorative masks used frequently help rehabilitate your skin.
One of my favorite MyChelle duos is Tropical Skin Smoother and Hydrating Cactus Mask. Tropical Skin Smoother is an antioxidant and moisture-rich skin exfoliator that retexturizes and buffs away dead skin cells and debris. Next, apply Hydrating Cactus Mask, a soothing treatment that softens skin while deeply hydrating and preventing moisture loss. This DIY treatment duo will have your skin feeling like you spent a fortune on a pricey facial.
By creating a consistent routine and giving your skin some extra TLC a few times a week, you can maintain all of the benefits of a high end facial with minimal cost. MyChelle products deliver fast, powerful, visible results without nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals and are perfect to use to maintain your post-facial glow.
