How to Keep that Post-Facial Glow

Picture this.

You’re lying down, lovingly wrapped up in your own cocoon of blankets and towels. Perfect subdued lighting, calming music. Your eyes are closed and someone is caring for your face like they are performing a sacred ritual for an ancient goddess. Aaaahh…

Facials are amazing for your skin and a really great way to relax the mind.

But do you get one regularly?

I have no doubt you see a hairdresser to help you care for your hair and a dentist for advice and care of your teeth but when was the last time you got advice about caring for your face?

A facial allows your therapist to look closely at your skin and develop the best way to care for it both in spa and at home. And let’s not forget the best part of the facial – the massage. Facial massage by a professional increases relaxation and decreases stress which can be visible in your skin. It also helps promote lymphatic drainage. In other words, it gets rid of toxins and reduces fluid retention. By flushing out these toxins we also promote circulation which in turn increases collagen production leaving skin glowing and youthful.

If you keep a regular facial routine, you and your facialist can work together to ensure your home routine suits your skin needs and the seasons. Your facialist can recognise any problems in your skin before they get out of hand so you can enjoy smoother texture, proper hydration, a glowing complexion, fewer breakouts and firmer skin.

I’ve put together a timeline of what happens to your skin post facial and the best ways to get the longest lasting results: –

Day 1


Immediate improvement! Yay!

Your skin will have a radiance and fresh glow about it. During your facial, your skin has been cleansed and exfoliated. The skin is glowing, hydrated and nourished.

Home care:

Drink plenty of water today and tomorrow. Water will help to keep essential hydration of all the cells of the body including those of the skin. Well hydrated cells function better than their dehydrated friends. It also helps to flush out toxins resulting in a clearer and brighter complexion. Enjoy your beautiful skin.


2 to 3 days later


Facials promote healthy cellular growth and during this time your skin is hydrated as the cells continue to boost circulation. The boosted circulation helps to bring oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. So your skin will look plumper than before.

Home care:

Skip over-exfoliating. Leave the exfoliating for 4-7 days post facial. Over scrubbing and cleansing strips the skin’s natural oil barrier (sebum) from your skin which can lead to irritation, redness, breakouts and dryness.


1-4 weeks


Over the next couple of weeks, the skin cells continue to regenerate and the full benefit of the facial can be seen. Your skin is plumper due to the increased circulation and absorption of all that moisture throughout the facial.

Home care:

It is important to continue your home routine and follow the instructions your facialist gave you. Cleanse, tone and moisturise daily to remove makeup and environmental pollutants. Remove the dead skin cells 1-2 times a week. Now is the time to book another facial and continue the habit every month.


4-6 weeks

It’s time for your next facial.

Relax and enjoy that smoother texture, proper hydration, a glowing complexion, fewer breakouts and firmer skin you get from a regular facial routine.

It is money and time well spent on the thing people recognise you by. Your face! Take a look at Gold Coast’s best facials menu or book yourself in now
