HEAD TO TOE
words Someone asked if I had work during my holidays. As in Botox etc. No renovations, but a spring clean, I said, with a facial with microdermabrasion, a non-surgical treatment using a diamond tip exfoliating head with vacuum suction to get rid of dead cells and rev up production of new cells.
After a thorough consultation, my therapist Madeleine set to work on my dry and dehydrated skin using certified cruelty-free Ultraceuticals products.
With my skin prepped by two cleanses, I was ready for the microdermabrasion she said would exfoliate much deeper than any DIY product. Not sure what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised at how gentle, pleasant even, the vacuum felt.
With the dead skin cells sloughed away my skin was given a drink with a hydrating serum followed by a replenishing mask. While the mask did its thing Madeleine gave me the best hand and arm massage ever. Lastly, she removed the mask and applied eyecream and sunscreen, advising me to wear it daily. I was thrilled at the improvement in my skin, which looked and felt moisture-packed with the fine lines around my eyes visibly reduced... and the glow hasn’t worn off. My products are performing better and I’m loving the no-longer-dry-and dehydrated skin I’m in.
