Your First Facial Can Be Frightening. Here's What To Expect


Cook, Motivationist and Nutritionist.

Your skincare prep routine will depend on the type of facial you’re getting. Taylor Worden, a celebrity aesthetician and founder of Taylor Worden Skin, tells Who What Wear, “Don’t exfoliate your skin four days before the facial.” Exfoliating close to the date of your facial can result in redness and irritation, leaving your skin looking worse than before. Per InStyle, avoid using retinol, BHAs, and AHAs a week before your facial to avoid any inflammation, redness, and irritation post-treatment.

Make sure to book with a licensed esthetician — always look through reviews and ask those you know for recommended estheticians to ensure you’re going to a professional who you can trust with your skin. 

Another important tip to remember is to be as honest as possible with your esthetician. Let them know about what skincare products you’re currently using, any allergies you have, and any struggles you experience with your skin like sensitive or dry skin. This will help them to provide you with a treatment curated specifically for your needs.
