Microneedling is getting very popular because of its benefits towards acne, scars, and other skin conditions. Microneedling can also be tricky to take care of your sensitive aftercare but don't worry! Today I am going to cover the do’s and don’t after microneedling. So without any delay, let’s start:

Here are a few things that you need to do after microneedling:
I recommend aloe vera extract as the first ingredient. During our childhood, if we go outside on sunny days to play or in direct sunlight for an extended period, our skin will always get sunburnt with pain followed by redness which can be quite uncomfortable. Our mom used to soothe it with fresh aloe vera gel.
After microneedling, our skin gets painful and uncomfortable. Soothing it with the aloe vera gel is the best idea.
The second step I recommend to improve your skin after micro-needling is collagen-stimulating peptides. Remember how you're still healing from the wounds? The device creates certain types of small scratches in our own cells, which means any skincare ingredients put on top will be absorbed faster and deeper into them as they heal up over time!
After microneedling, your skin is still healing, and it needs time to absorb all the ingredients. The last thing you should add after treatment with this process is products rich in hyaluronic acid because they will hydrate and help achieve that dewy look for a long period of time without looking oily or shiny!
Here are a few things that you need to avoid after microneedling:
This includes a sauna, intensive exercise, and jjimjilbang. You should avoid direct exposure to sunlight as well.
Refrain from drinking alcohol and smoking for a minimum of one week after the micro-needling procedure so that your skin can heal quickly.
One of the most important things to remember after a micro-needling treatment is not to apply any skin makeup for at least two or three days. Avoid chemicals or artificial colors, as your wounds may still be healing and irritated from them in this time period!
Avoiding exfoliation after micro-needling is important to avoid any additional irritation.
The sun is tricky to survive in, and if you're just starting out with micro-needling, it can make things even more difficult. So be sure to use sunscreen every day and to wear hats or masks when outside for long periods of time;
