Why not treat yourself to a Polished Facial?

qj17qgmwFacials can help smooth, exfoliate, clarify, hydrate, nourish, firm, energise and normalise your skin. This, in turn, gives you a bright radiant complexion and improves texture and tone as well as addresses skin concerns and tackle the aging process which starts from your mid 20s.

I had very bad acne myself from 12-30 years of age and so I have invested a lot of time in studying skin. A facial is my all time fav beauty treat so I regularly indulge and invest in finding treatments and products that really work to make visible changes to the skin. I am delighted to share my expertise with you about whatever skin conditions you might be concerned with.

My background is in biochemistry, microbiology and product formulation and I worked in sales and marketing for many years so I can help you fight through the jargon and marketing lingo on skincare labels and I can advise on what skin care products work really well for your skin type. I can do a makeup lesson with you, make up for you as well as prescribing the right homecare plan for you to get the best out of your facial treatments and give you skin you love! I do facials, microneedling, glycolic and TCA peels as well as I retail skincare supplements from the Advanced Nutrition Programme and retail the Jane Iredale Skincare Makeup line. This is a super range for all skin types especially girls looking to invest in their skin with high quality makeup. It is suitable for the most sensitive skin aswell as those with rosecea, acne and it can be used post waxing, or post peels etc as it will not irritate the skin.

Skincare Products

For Anti-Ageing, Acneic & Problem Skin

For Anti Aging and Acneic & Problem Skin I use a medical range called “Jan Marini” I combine this with a course of Glycolic Peels to renew your skin and make you thrilled with the new skin your in! This American brand have an incredibly effective range of products, personally tried and tested that make real long lasting changes to your skin and the treatment plans can be adjusted to your skin type. I also use The Ordinary Serums. Another company with incredible clinical formulations to suit all skin needs.  I also offer microneedling. This treatment doesnt hurt as numbing cream is added beforehand. It feels like an electric toothbrush over your skin. The 15 tiny osscillating needles make small pin points to the skin which notify your skin immunity to come to the site of injury and replace the holes with new skin cells with new collagen, new elastin thus helping your skin turn over faster leaving new brighter skin. This treatment is ideal for those looking for skin rejuvanation, to  help lighter pigmentation, to help lessen the appearance of scarring and lines and wrinkles. It costs €150 over time it will help make further visible changes to your skin. Done monthly 5 for the price of 4.

For Rosecea / Sensitive Skin Suffers I retail The Kinvarra Range. An Irish Range full of Essential Oils and zero nasties. Their is nothing like their 24hour  serum for hydrating skin. I also do facials with this range.

For 20-50s Skin Who Want to Keep on Top of Their Skin as it Ages I love REN. Another Clean Line with NO Nasties.  I retail the full range and they have something for every decade. Their Masques and homecare are so effective for my clients.

Traditional French Skincare

arsene valere2We also use Arsene Valere Professional. A traditonal beautiful French range of Facial Products made from a combination of aromatherapy, plant and mineral extracts.We use it because-well you know the way Dermalogica is the training product for American Beauty schools and hence why a lot of therapists use it, well AV is the training product for European training schools and I did extensive training in France so that is why we use it for general facials.

The benefits that nature brings through Aromatherapy are well know and they are harmonised with nature and science. These facials include treatments for mature, anti wrinkle, acne, dehydrated skin and combination skin. We only list one type of facial as each one is tailored to suit the needs of the clients skin. None of their products have been tested on animals.

Organic Skincare

kinvara
We also are big fans of Kinvara Skincare. They have 3 Simple 100% organic nourishing products for the skin. I discovered them during pregnancy when I noticed my skin was drier and I was looking to use a natural range. I adore their cleansing oil and serum and their sweet natural smells and  we retail it in the salons and incorporate it into facials.

Specific Skin Ailments & Sensitive Skin

REN ADREN gives you groundbreaking product formulation, the latest hi-tech actives, rigorous product testing and clinically proven results. REN uses only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients. It does not contain any synthetic chemicals or parabens. I find their products incredibly effective for those starting their anti aging regime but also incredibly luxurious and I love their natural sweet fragrance. Nothing artificial. Just Pure. We love it!
