You know those times when you want treat yourself with a facial or skin treatment but you don’t know what to choose because you don’t really know what your skin needs and you end up selecting what you think your skin needs or you just cancel it altogether? Well, this is me most of the time and most of the time I just don’t do it.
This year I turned 39 and the older I get, the more I realize that should’ve paid more attention to my skin when I was younger. It’s no use crying over spilled milk now but I can do what I can now. I don’t have major skin issues (thank GOD) but it does need some tlc once in a while.
A couple of weeks ago I book a Pro Skin 60 treatment with Dermalogica at their concept store in Tygervalley and this is what I thought.
First of all, the setting was so tranquil and I immediately felt comfortable. My therapist, Tristan was amazing from start to finish and if she had to ask me to donate both my kidneys, I would have done so in 2 secs. She first sat me down for a quick chat about my skin concerns and what I would like to have done. After I shared my concerns, Tristan did an analysis of my skin by touching and looking closely at it and knew immediately what I needed. I was directed to one of their treatment rooms where I made myself comfortable on the bed, ready to start my treatment.
I appreciated that my skin therapist asked me if she should talk me through my treatment and because it was my first Dermalogica facial, I agreed. From the products she applies to when she’ll be doing next, I was thoroughly aware of what was happening. If you prefer to have more relaxing experience, I am sure your therapist wouldn’t mind being as quiet as a mouse.
After my treatment, we had another “debriefing session” where she explained to me what she used and basically a step by step guide of what I should be doing and using on my skin. What I loved about the treatment is that it’s tailor made for everybody because everybody’s needs are different.
I had the Pro Skin 60 treatment which was 60 minutes long to address my long term need but you also have a choice to do the Pro Skin 30 treatment which is a 30 minute treatment to address your immediate skin concerns.
Also, face mapping is a complimentary service that helps you identify your skin needs and find products suitable for your skin condition.
So, if you’re thinking of giving yourself a treat or you have a few concerns regarding your skin, pop on into your nearest Dermalogica Concept store to start your healthy skin journey.
