Avoid getting facials multiple times in a month, especially if you have acne prone and sensitive skin.Overdoing your facial treatments put your skin in more risks than benefits and it can further open up your pores making it appear bigger. Excess sebum production is also likely to happen if you overdo your facial treatments.
