A little bit of pampering ...
Yesterday I went for a heavenly facial with Theresa Harrison thbeautytherapy.com in Winchester.
I try my hardest to look after my skin, I NEVER go to bed without removing my make up - I can get breakouts and going to bed with unwashed, clogged pores is asking for trouble! I exfoliate at least twice a week (currently using the Body Shops Vitamin C Microdermabrasion- post coming soon...) and use a range of various lotions and potions to help protect and repair my skin - I'm a bit of a skincare addict. I am however guilty of not drinking enough water and my sugar intake probably isn't ideal for that glowing skin look (hey, I love cake!) but I try to eat a balanced diet and really see the results in my skin if I haven't been eating well. And we're all exposed to free radicals and general pollution that can leave skin looking and feeling a bit dull and tired.
As I've gotten older I've realised the massive benefit from getting regular facials and I think this is what keeps my skin in good condition.
Theresa is lovely, warm and welcoming and really knows her stuff when it comes to skin. Theresa's at home salon is based in a tranquil cul de sac in the Oliver's Battery area of Winchester, which is ideal as it means free parking and privacy. I alway prefer out of town salons for relaxing treatments, no fighting for a parking space or tackling the high street. Theresa's treatment room is peaceful and relaxing.
Theresa has over 10 years experience and uses products from the top European skin care house Germaine de Capuccini offering a great range of therapeutic and rejuvenating facial treatments aswell as body and more specialised treatments such as IPL.
I had a Prescriptive facial using the Age defence range as I wanted a general deep cleanse and brightening treatment.
A deep cleanse, exfoliation, mask, facial and neck and shoulder massage were included in the treatment, I was in heaven! The products feel wonderful on your skin, with a subtle scent that isn't overpowering.
My skin feels throughly cleansed and pampered and is definitely looking clearer, brighter and glowy.
I'm going to try and visit Theresa once a month to keep my skin in tip top condition.
