“LOVE YOUR SKIN, LOVE YOUR LIFE, LOVE YOURSELF”
I’ve embraced the world of looking after my skin and having as many facials as i can since the beginning of last year – maybe mid 2015. Im getting older, so i guess i’ve only been really conscious about my skin recently. And god its important!!
So what makes an amazing facial? And what can you expect?
Few other pleasures compare to a good facial/massage, so what exactly is to be expected? It is proven by beauty therapists and medical experts alike, that people who get regular facials definitely have softer and healthier skin and that their complexion, post-facial is as refreshed as their mood. For me, my facial is like doing an amazing workout where i leave high on endorphins and feeling amazing about myself!
So whilst i’m in America, one of my personal ‘to do’s’ on this months hit list was find an amazing salon where i was experiencing the ultimate facial, using great products as natural as possible. So i found Alexandra Wagner located on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach.
Ok so what i didn’t realise about Alexandra Wagner, is that SHE is a real person, who formulated and manufactured her own amazing line of skincare, some vegan some not, but all natural. And the SHE actually took the time to do my facial …. skin god star struck for a little minute. I felt terrible for her , my skin was so congested from flying and eating too many American treats in my first 2 weeks here! She’s super chilled – i almost felt at home with how relaxed she was, inner aussie spirit maybe? – so great first impression.
So the facial was a 6 combination of at least six steps, cleanse, surface exfoliation, an enzyme peel, microdermabrasion, thorough extractions, and a customised mask—with an added microcurrent treatment to stimulate, lift, and sculpt the muscles of the face. The result? My skin felt firmer, plumper, more hydrated and quite radiant if i may say so myself.
I managed to ask Alexandra a few sneaky questions …
“What is your number skin care tip or ‘must do’?
Wash your skin every night and make sure to take off all of your makeup along with using a cotton pad and toner a few times a week to wipe away excess makeup and dirt.
“What is your favourite product in your skin care line?”
Since I formulated just 3 products I wanted to make each one a favourite in its category depending on what you are looking for. SO… I have to say that they are all favourites.
I wanted to make a foaming yet hydrating cleanser that cleanses, gently exfoliates and leave the skin hydrated and bright.
If you need anti aging and help with healing scaring, pigmentation , and redness then the serum is the fave
The exfoliant is the ultimate for getting rid of dead skin cells and brightening. You can use it 3 ways so its great as a mask, quick scrub or gommage( where you out it on dry skin and gently rub it off)
“Can anyone get the skin they want if they start now?”
Its truely amazing how unique and different everyone’s skin is. You know those people who look flawless and do nothing for their skin. They are the lucky few. Some of us have to work a lot harder, but I believe if you put healthy positive energy and effort into your skin you can truly transform it. It is about educating yourself, finding the right products that work for you, and finding the right treatments with an experienced professional to help transform your complexion so when you look in the mirror you LOVE your skin.
