Post Appointment Facial Care

Can you wash your face after a facial?

You can wash your face after a facial as soon as you feel necessary. Most clients usually wait until the next day to wash their face though, considering you’ll be leaving glowing and fresh.


How long after a facial can I put on makeup?


It is recommended to wait 24 hours after your facial appointment before applying makeup. Your skin's absorption rate is extremely high after a facial, meaning you should only be applying products to your face that will positively benefit from this extra absorption.

How do I keep my skin glowing after a facial?


You can keep your skin glowing after a facial by washing daily with quality filled ingredient products and staying moisturized and hydrated. Drinking enough water daily is important for keeping the skin glowing.


Be sure to stay out of the sun


After a facial it is important to stay out of direct sunlight, especially without SPF. dhesthetics recommends wearing SPF daily on your face. SPF helps to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that can cause sunspots, dark spots and premature wrinkling.

Avoid picking at your skin


After a facial it is normal to experience some peeling or minor breakouts. It is imperative that you do not pick at these spots and let them breathe and heal naturally. Picking at your skin can cause irritation and unnecessary sensitivity.


Postpone any wax or laser treatments on your face

After a facial you should avoid waxing or laser treatments for 2 weeks. Skin is sensitive after a facial and should be looked after with proper moisturization and hydration.


Other considerations:


  • During your appointment Danielle will speak to you thoroughly about the current products you’re using at home and change recommendations to benefit your specific skin concerns

  • If you’re a first time facial client with dhesthetics you’ll receive an aftercare kit with moisturizer and SPF samples. We recommend using these until they run out as they’re the same products used during your procedure
