However, what I've realized is that no matter how much skincare you apply, how expensive it is, or how good it is for your face, everyone will still be prone to breakouts in ways that does not necessarily be caused by your skincare - such as the environment you live in, your diet, stress factor etc.
Thus, our skin will still get clogged from time to time, unless you've awesome genetics that helps your hormones to stay in check (in which I don't). I'll have to search for alternatives to unclog these pores!
One of the effective methods I've found is through regular facials!
Since August has been a pretty rough month for me (other than the stress factor), there's the ongoing haze which has pretty much affected my complexion. Thus, I'm really grateful to be approached by Donna Beauty to try out their services. (Note: This is not a paid post but a review)
A little on Donna Beauty;
- been around for 7 years
- currently 2 outlets - IMM outlet mall ,jurong east #02-29 (tel:65636880) & The Star Vista , Bouna Vista #B1-17 ( tel: 66944257)
- Provide wide range of wellness services , facial / massage / slimming / wellness / spa
I paid a visit to Donna Beauty at the IMM outlet. As I'm not a foreigner/newb when it comes to facials, I was expecting the pretty standard procedures when it comes to facials - you know.. the basic cleansing, facial steaming, extractions and mask procedures.
To my surprise, Donna Beauty incorporates what feels like a medispa experience with wellness and facial all together... like a 3 in 1 experience!! Their equipment are up to date technology which helps to improve their client's skin needs and massages were done throughout the facial treatment which ensures that youuuu (the client/customer) feels relaxed throughout the entire experience
I was first led into a room where I was consulted by one of the consultants there. Through the process, they accessed my current skin condition and also skin type (which is hyper sensitive combination skin). Thus, they proposed for me to try out their hyluronic acid facial treatment which help to boost up skin hydrating levels, calms and soothes the skin and end the session with a mint mask to help detoxify my skin!
What made the entire session so good is the fact that they've incorporated face and head massages into the whole procedure!!! You can't help but feel overwhelmingly pampered and relaxed with them :) Needless to say, I fell asleep halfway through the procedure. But from what I remember, the steps done were these:
- Cleansing and Exfoliation
- Sonic Cleansing to open up the pores
(medispa concept instead of the usual face steaming)
- Manual Extractions
- Face soothing massage (I fell asleep halfway through)
- Not sure what's done to my face throughout my slumber
- Some cold machine thingy used to massage my face (woke up at the end of this)
- Mint mask
All in all, I was surprised by the experience as I did not expected it to be this relaxing and good!! And as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words. This is what my face looks like before/after, and also pics taken a few days later with only tinted sunblock :)
