Wow, summer has gone by quicker than a Love Island relationship.
And dare we mention it now but those sexy Halloween bashes and Christmas office parties are right around the corner.
In light of the colder weather and that demon of dehydration, called central heating, Look Lovely London is here to ensure your face gleams and sparkles (especially through, ahem, drink-heavy parties) thanks to their new kid on the block…
All right, let’s face it, beauty fans…
It’s the UK.
No one’s skin is immune to this nutty changing weather.
Case in point, one grey September morning, I woke up with itchier skin than usual and even after applying coconut oil, I haplessly watched it soak into my skin as if it were a few mere flecks of water.
Add to that, my irritating redness (rosacea) seemed to be back…ugh…yes, I had to face facts, my skin was parched!
I decided to do something about it and swiftly booked a Hydrafacial at Look Lovely London.
Now as knowledgeable as I flatter myself to be on the beauty front, I knew little about the Hydrafacial.
Miraculously I didn’t Google it either (!?) maybe something about the “hydra” part already convinced me it was right for my issues…
But what I wasn’t expecting is just how packed it is with so much more.
The whole procedure started with what felt like a solid Swedish massage to my face (lymphatic drainage it’s called). Melissa explained this increased circulation and cleared toxins by stimulating lymph nodes around the face….
The first step was so relaxing.
Next, my face got moved around quite a bit for what seemed like a more rigorous version of microdermabrasion, only with a much more pleasant and watery sensation…
At this point, I already commented on the variety of things happening and Melissa exclaimed…
“It’s 6 facials rolled into one.”
That’s a relief, since I don’t have much free time, nor the budget for 6 separates.
The next stage did feel slightly more familiar: Glycolic and salicylic acid were applied to my face, like a chemical peel. I felt a slight tingling sensation impurities were being softened.
After that my blackheads on my nose were vacuumed off and…
Ooh la la, then came my absolutely favourite part…when a mix of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid got infused into my skin, which helped plump and hydrate it.
This stage felt absolutely wonderful!!
It was like pure moisture entered my dermis. To anyone with dry skin issues- trust me…this is the magic step.
Finally, I went under the LED light, which promotes the production of collagen and helped reduce the annoying redness I was having increasing issues with.
It pretty much crystallised all the previous stages and I left the clinic with my skin fresh, healthy and completely revived.
That evening, I took pics and sent to my boyfriend- bing– he immediately came back with “very beautiful and shiny.”
So there we go.
If you want to be “very beautiful and shiny” this winter season and reduce nasty skin irritations, such as eczema or rosacea, book a Hydrafacial with Melissa at Look Lovely London and you’ll gleam around the capital and the rest of the gusty UK like a star.
You owe it to yourself.
