What Your Facialist Should Know

If it’s your first time with a facialist, she’ll ask you questions or have you fill out a questionnaire. If she gets right to work without a consultation, stop her and ask her what she plans to do. Here’s what’s important for her to know: your age, your normal skincare regimen, any allergies, any medications you are taking including antibiotics or birth control (this might account for blotchiness), whether you use alpha-hydroxy acids, Retin-A, or Renova (if you do your skin is hypersensitive and she should skip the exfoliation), if you have sensitive skin or your skin has had a reaction to essential oil, and your history of acne and/or how often your skin breaks out.
