We may not be allowed in the salon just yet, however that doesn't mean your skin needs to suffer. Here is my Easy 5 Step Anti Ageing Facial for you to do at home, whilst we wait for the salon to reopen.
Get all your products, and towels ready so that you have everything to hand. Tie your hair back and pop on a head band to stop the product running into your hair. Now you're ready to begin.
Cleanse -Grab your La Clinica Cleanser, wrap your hair in a towel and get cleansing! Take your time with continuous flowing movements all around your face, being careful around the eyes.
Exfoliate -We recommend La Clinica 3 in 1 Anti Ageing Scrub Mask because of the clever enzymatic action and the gentle scrub particles to slough away that dead layer of epidermis. Wet your skin a little, apply a small amount to your fingers and gently paint the product on to your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Now sit back and relax for 10 minutes under a nice warm towel (squeezed under warm water) to allow the enzymes to work. To remove, simply use gentle finger tips in circular motions to agitate the scrub, then remove with that damp towel until all particles are gone. Stay well away from the eyes with this product as it is to harsh for this delicate area..
Steam- Either jump into a nice warm steamy bath tub, sit back, relax and unwind, or grab yourself a big bowl, boil the kettle, pour it in and hover over it while covering your head and bowl with a towel for 10 minutes or longer if you feel the need.
Mask Up - We love our La Clinica Hyaluronic Sheet Mask but equally lovely is the Sensitive Skin Gentle Cream Mask. Both are soothing, cooling, hydrating and luxurious on the skin. Which ever mask you choose, make sure you relax and unwind (this is not an excuse to get on with the housework!) Remove with a lovely warm damp towel and get ready for the last step.
Hydrate- You've smoothed the skin, warmed it up and nourished it, so now it's time to lock in all that hard work with a treatment serum (Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid is pretty amazing). Always allow serums to penetrate for a minute or two, before applying a delicious beauty oil and then your moisturiser. Remember that massage is very important for muscles, skin and blood flow. Small upward strokes and little circles while applying each of these things will give a real boost. It will also encourage better penetration of product. During winter months all of these steps will help your skin feel fresh, supple and cared for. I can't wait to be back in the salon, so that I can look after you with all your favourite treatments.
