The water at the pool often contains chlorine that may disturb the treated skin. The warm steam at the sauna too can affect the freshly treated area.Do not use any sort of cosmetics on the face especially close to the eyes while avoiding anything that has an artificial fragrance. Limit it to the medical ointments provided to you at least for a week or so.
