Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
There are no specific restrictions on washing your face or wearing a sunscreen after the actions you mentioned. However, you must pay close attention to the facial soap you use and also the way you wash your face. After doing these facial treatment measures, the face will become more sensitive and very easily irritated. Therefore you are not recommended to wash your face using hot water (water that is slightly warm is fine). You are also not allowed to wash your face with soap containing scrubs or other ingredients that can cause further irritation on the face (for example soap containing antiseptics, alcohol, salicylic acid, etc.). The use of other facial care products that also contain ingredients that irritate the face (including the use of facial creams that contain retinoic acid or retinol) are also not recommended. You should avoid these things not only in the first 12 hours, but you should avoid them until your entire face looks better, redness and swelling on the face have also disappeared. You certainly still have to wash your face to avoid the accumulation of dirt and dead skin cells. Make sure you use gentle soap for your face and rub your face gently. When you dry your face, also make sure you dry it gently and don't rub it roughly.
Sunscreen itself is highly recommended for use because exposure to sunlight will irritate your face further. After these actions you are advised to avoid direct sun exposure on the face (wearing a hat or umbrella, or shelter and away from direct sun exposure) and keep wearing green when you leave the house in the morning and afternoon. You must apply the sunscreen properly and also do the reapplication every 2 hours.
After doing certain actions on your face, make sure you always ask the things you can and shouldn't do to your doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
