Broken skin and redness after facial, what do you recommend for this?

Be gentle: If you experience redness or skin irritation after a facial, probably the products used were too harsh for your skin. Avoid any skin care products, cleanse your skin with water only, and you may try a gentle moisturizer like cetaphil in am til skin has healed. Check with your aesthetician on what chemicals used in your facial may have caused this and avoid in future.
