I walked in and was greeted by a lovely receptionist, I then met Annalouise Kenny. She is the managing director at Skin Philosophy, she is classically pretty with amazing skin. She gave me a warm welcome and we commenced into a side room so she could start my consultation.
1. Water and we are not talking 6 small glasses a day, its like all day every day. Water is what keeps our skin plump and hydrated. This will preserve our skin and give us a healthy glow.
2. SPF SPF SPF the sun ages our skin, and being of Asian origin I just assumed my makeup is enough. Wrong always wear sun screen under makeup to protect your skin.
3. For dry skin use hydrating creams and for fine lines products with a high content of Retinol A. This will safeguard your skin from further wrinkles and reduce the apperance of fine lines.
My lovely friend Annie had a consultation and a chemical peel. She has oily skin, so if you do, please head over to see the do's and the do not's for oily skin at Musings of a Makeup Junkie
I was then ready to find out about the egg like contraption, that I noticed as soon as I stepped into the room. This is a facial scanner machine that maps the face and gives a full in depth analysis of the skins health. It takes multiple high resolution images of the face and underlying layers of skin. The naked eye can not see this microscopic detail. It then puts images on to the computer.
I was then ready for my treatment, I was led to my room. The clinic is a tardis it goes on and on, array of treatment rooms, all painted in white, it has a feeling of peace and tranquilty. I loved my treatment room, large, airy and lots of natural light.
It is coming up to a week since I had the chemical peel and all I can say is WOW. My skin looks amazing to the point I haven't worn foundation since the treatment, first time in decades. My light pigmentation has all but vanished and I feel confident within myself. This is something I didn't expect, I thought maybe it will improve my skin but I wasn't prepared for the new found self esteem.
I have also started using these products recommended by Annalouise, I will do a post in a few weeks time to let you know how I have got on. So far so good and they are available to purchase from Skin Philosophy. I would like to thank the team, for being so attentive, knowledgeable and welcoming.
