afterFindOne lifeCycle hook causes infinite loop

Hi everyone, I am trying to implement a viewCounter/readCounter for posts and I want to do it in a lifeCycle hook. But unfortunately even if I use strapi.db or strapi.entityService. Either way, when I try to update the field, the method I use trigger also the same hook (afterFindOne) and I end up with infinite loop.

    const entity = await strapi.db.entityManager.update("", {
      where: { id: },
      data: {
        readCount: 250,

Any help appreciated, I saw a post but it is for Strapi 3 and not works anymore.
