Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - BEAUTY -

I’m not al­lowed to use the F-word in my house. It’s be­cause Will, my boyf, is five-and-ahalf years younger — though no­body notices, as I’m a bit im­ma­ture for my age and he’s quite ma­ture.

So, I haven’t ac­tu­ally ‘cel­e­brated’ my 40th birth­day yet. Will’s de­cided we can have a joint 40th in 2020! Un­til then, I’ll have to hold back the years.

So I paid a visit to the lovely Sue in Bel­laza Beauty Salon in Ranelagh, to try out the Re­ac­tion Fa­cial, which they have ex­clu­sively.

Ap­para, Gwyneth Pal­trow, left, is a fan. It ad­dresses lo­calised fat by heat­ing the sub­cu­ta­neous tis­sue layer, stim­u­lat­ing lipol­y­sis that shrinks fat-cell vol­ume and en­cour­ages the pro­duc­tion of col­la­gen, im­prov­ing the skin’s firm­ness and elas­tic­ity.

Th­ese dou­ble-ac­tion re­sults lead to a younger, more con­toured ap­pear­ance. I’ve no­ticed a big dif­fer­ence af­ter only one treat­ment.

Sure, we might have a joint 30th — if I get Will to try this out as well! Re­ac­tion Fa­cial, €200 a ses­sion for the face, or six for €995, and €100 a ses­sion for the eyes, or six for €500. Bel­laza Beauty Salon, Ranelagh Rd, D6, tel: (01) 496-3484, or see www.bel­laz­
