The facial you need to know about!

By Contributor • 8 months ago • BEAUTY

There is no more satisfying feeling than completing a workout and knowing you have given it your all. Girl, don’t be afraid to sweat – this is your body’s way of cooling down and de-toxifying. We all know working out is great for your health and to ensure you optimise your results for both your body and your beauty, experts recommend topping up your regime with effective skin treatments and quality products post-workout.

Fit girls are opting to keep their skin hydrated with monthly HydraFacials and for those who want to know what the fuss is all about, we have enlisted the expertise of Kaye Scott of The Clinic. Kaye gives us the low down on why this treatment will keep any active girls’ skin in tip-top condition.

Firstly, the HydraFacial gives you instantly fresher, cleaner and more hydrated skin. When you work-out and sweat, the body loses water so it’s important to put the hydration back into your skin. Secondly, it clears out congestion and blackheads, and lastly ahead of any special event or to feel fresh on the daily, the HydraFacial will help you achieve fresher, brighter skin.

How does the HydraFacial work?

Using a patented spiral tip, the HydraFacial simultaneously exfoliates, clears blocked pores and infuses nourishing serums with a unique suction technique for maximum penetration. It is an all in one medi-clean treatment, making it quick and efficient, completed within half an hour.

What are the benefits of the HydraFacial?

  • It offers instant and noticeable results with no downtime or discomfort.
  • Exfoliates dead skin cells & extracts impurities while simultaneously restoring skin hydration, leaving skin suppler & vibrant.
  • Uses three different skin serums targeted to your individual concerns for the ultimate in hydration and skin rejuvenation.
  • Unclogs pores and creates brighter, cleaner and clearer skin.
  • It can be customised to suit your needs, including during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

For the active girl, how many HydraFacial treatments will you need?

The HydraFacial works in a single treatment – your skin will be noticeably cleaner and softer. We recommend one HydraFacial every 2-3 months to keep the pores clear and to promote long term skin health.

What happens during the HydraFacial treatment?

The HydraFacial is performed as a multi-step treatment. First, there is a deep cleanse and exfoliation to remove dead skin cells which include Salicylic and Glycolic acid to prepare the pores. This is followed by a painless extraction of blackheads and whiteheads and the final step offers rehydration where hyaluronic, peptides and an infusion of antioxidants and essential nutrients is suctioned back into the skin for better penetration. The whole treatment takes 30 minutes.

And for keeping your skin hydrated in-between treatments, it is recommended to use The Moisturiser as it is a rich, hydrating, fast-absorbing moisturiser for all skin types.

Formulated with Sea Buckthorn it reduces redness and is especially good for sensitive skin or those with rosacea; Plant Stem Cells strengthen collagen fibres, ideal for ageing skin; Peptides tighten, firm and improve overall skin tone; and Aloe Vera soothes inflamed or irritated skin.
