Oh no! Black Chyna took to Snapchat to share her disastrous post-facial results, showing fans a painful looking rash. Click ahead to find out what happened and how you can calm irritated skin.
Blac Chyna, 28, suffered from a major beauty mishap after getting a facial. The star, who is pregnant with her and fiance Rob Kardashian‘s first child together, shared a series of Snapchats explaining the whole mystery behind her inflamed skin.
Sharing and then later deleting an up-close pic of what appeared to be a red rash on her face, at first Blac thought an allergic reaction to something she ate or makeup was to blame for her irritated skin. Later, Blac realized it all must have been from a facial she got at a nail salon two days earlier.
New York Dermatologist and founder of Sea Radiance, Dr. Debra Jaliman explains, “Breakouts after a facial can happen. A facial opens up your pores and if there are any bacteria already on the skin, you can break out,” Dr. Jaliman explains.
While Dr. Jaliman says the hormones during pregnancy can make you more prone to breakouts, in Blac’s case, an allergic reaction was most likely to blame since a bit of children’s Benadryl cleared her skin right up.
Still, Dr. Jaliman says there are things you can do to avoid post-facial irritation. “Make sure your facialist cleans your skin before your facial,” she tells us. “After an extraction, a topical antibiotic or antiseptic should be applied [and] post-facial, a good cleanser is essential,” she goes on to say, adding, “I recommend my Sea Radiance Gentle Cleanser, which contains ingredients like aloe vera leaf juice extract and chamomile flower extract to calm and soothe.
