Deal with flare-ups from the facial the right way and you won't be in hiding for long.
A relaxing facial should leave you soft and glowing, but instead you’re greasy and blotchy. It’ll get better soon, but for now here’s how to grin and bear it.
what to do
The bad news is, when it comes to facials, more zits and oily skin sometimes come with the territory. The good news is that it's just a short-lived stage you have to live through to uncover glowing skin. Facials tend to release excess oil that can lead to a few extra breakouts, so it's important to stick to a cleansing routine that includes acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid to help the process along. And remember, never pick! It'll only make things worse. Go the extra mile and speed up the healing process by using an astringent after you shower to help unclog and tighten your pores. Use a blemish-fighting cleanser to strike the right balance between too dry and too shiny, and carry some blemish fighting cleansing cloths for quick cleaning on the go. Before you know it, everyone will be telling you how great you look.
