The time is right... for a facial

Remember that there are days when your skin tends to be more sensitive.

Even if you don't generally class your skin as 'sensitive', you may have noticed that there are times when it seems to be more easily irritated.

Of course, hormones play a great part in this, and most women find that in the days immediately before and after their period their skin tends to be more sensitive. This means it's a good idea to check your body's personal calendar when you're booking an appointment at the beauty salon. As a rule of thumb, try to leave seven days after the end of the menstrual cycle so that your hormones are more stable before you arrange for a facial.
