Facials are fun and can be the gateway to healthy, clear and glowing skin. But, those of us with sensitive skin have historically avoided this experience because of the harsh products used at professional centers. For us, getting a facial with these harsh ingredients would cancel any of the skin benefits of expert skin care.
Advancements in skin care products and technology now make it possible for us to enjoy professional pampering. Open and honest communication is another tool that can improve our visits and decrease the probability of a negative skin reaction. Sharing information about you and your skin can help you realize your best possible skin. So, here are 3 things to tell your esthetician in order to have a great session and overall results:
- Health concerns
Dryness, discoloration, weakness and irritations of the skin can be a sign of illness. Diabetes, autoimmune disorders, cancer etc. can impair skin and cause the need for professional support. Once shared, your esthetician will use the best products to nourish your and try to improve skin.
2. Daily skin care routine
Estheticians know that all skin is not the same. They’ll need to know about your products and routine, including frequency, in order to properly assess your skin prior to your session. Once the assessment is done, they will try new products to help boost the health and appearance of your skin during the session. And, after the session, they are better able to make recommendations to enhance your daily routine.
3. About your sensitive skin
Products vary by skin type and sensitivity. Knowing this, an esthetician is going to have products for both sensitive and non-sensitive skin. Let your esthetician know that you have sensitive skin to avoid a negative skin reaction during and after your session. This knowledge prompts your esthetician to use gentle products and do a patch test for each prior to using it all over your face/body.
Advancements in skin care products and technology now make it possible for people with sensitive skin to enjoy professional skin care services. Visits to an esthetician come with a decreased probability of a negative skin reaction. This probability decreases when you have an open and honest conversation with your practitioner about your skin.
