Dermatologist 's  Response
The burning on the forehead , chin ,red patches; it may be due to prior excessive dryness of the face prior to the facial or it may be due to irritants used in the facial pack material ,so the management is -> keep the face soft and moist with good cleanser ( Cetaphil cleanser) every 4 hourly followed by moisturizer ( Cetaphil moisturizer) along with mild topical steriod (like Sofradex) thrice a day till the symtoms are over. Avoid direct sunlight and use appropriate sun screener in a good amount half an hour before exposing to the sunlight.
