Last week we were lucky enough to visit Bondi Lashes and Beauty clinic for a much-needed facial. These winter months have our skin dry, dehydrated and in need of some desperate TLC.
Founder Joanne, who, may we add also does the best eyelashes in Sydney, offers two amazing facial treatments that leave your skin glowing. The only difference between the glow is that one emerges straight away, whilst the other shows up a few days later.
The first treatment was the Lactic Acid Peel derived from Alpha hydroxy acids. Without explaining the science behind it, this treatment exfoliates the surface of the skin, while deep cleaning the pores. If your skin tone is uneven (like most of us), the peel will stimulate natural collagen production, even out the skin tone and improve hyper pigmentation of the skin.
Most importantly, it will make those dark spots fade away. Oh and did we mention that they can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines! Our skin felt smoother, brighter and lighter- an unbeatable combination. The REAL results however, came 72 hours later and our skin felt flawless.
If your facial is booked on a Saturday and you expect to be hitting the town that night, we highly recommend the Microdermabrasion. It sprays tiny CRYSTALS onto your skin to gently remove the outer layer of dull, dead, skin. It’s a great option for brightening dull skin and fading age spots and pigmentation.
It’s a full-on exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that reveals a new fresh layer of skin that feels softer and looks brighter. Again, you’re GLOWING.
The skin may feel pink, dry and a little tight just after treatment, but fully recovered within a day, so there’s no real healing time required – hence why it’s sometimes referred to as ‘the lunchtime facial’.
