Glass skin, a beauty trend originating from Korean skincare routines, refers to a flawless and luminous complexion that resembles smooth, reflective glass. Achieving this coveted look involves a meticulous skincare routine and the use of specific products. Some key products that contribute to achieving glass skin include hydrating serums, lightweight moisturisers, and gentle exfoliants to promote skin renewal. The emphasis is on maintaining skin health and clarity, often involving a multi-step regimen.
For those seeking an extra boost to attain glass skin, Dr. Ivona's Face Design treatment at 111 Harley St. offers a comprehensive approach. This signature technique incorporates Botox by Mesotherapy to enhance the skin's glow and Dermal Filler applications to the mid face, chin, and lips for added volume and definition. Dr. Ivona's Face Design method aims to create facial harmony, utilising the latest injectable techniques and technology for a beautiful, natural-looking result. Dr. Ivona's bespoke process begins with a thorough consultation to understand individual goals, and treatments may involve a combination of Botox, Dermal Fillers, or Soft Threads. This layered, non-invasive approach is tailored to achieve the desired result while enhancing innate beauty and features.
A holistic approach to skincare can seamlessly intertwine with self-care practices, providing a therapeutic experience that rejuvenates both the body and mind. Donna Ryan, a renowned facialist, offers a 90-minute Signature Treatment that beautifully encapsulates this synergy of skincare and self-care.
Donna's Signature Treatment is a sensory journey designed to elevate your well-being. The session begins with body gua sha, a traditional Chinese technique applied to the back, neck, and shoulders, releasing tension, stress, and promoting circulation. This sets the tone for a comprehensive experience that goes beyond skincare, delving into the realm of holistic rejuvenation.
The treatment unfolds with a deep cleansing process using dermaviduals' DMS cleanser and enzyme mask, prioritising the protection of the skin barrier. Donna then introduces the Thai herbal poultice, applying a heated herbal compress to the face and neck, releasing deep-rooted tension and providing relief from inflammation, such as acne. This step not only relaxes muscles but also enhances circulation and promotes detoxification.
Facial gua sha follows, employing a nephrite jade tool to massage and tone the face, enhancing circulation, reducing puffiness, and fostering a more youthful appearance. Donna's unique approach incorporates Eastern European face massage techniques, targeting connective tissue to stimulate collagen production, encourage lymphatic drainage, and improve overall skin texture.
The treatment doesn't stop there; Donna incorporates buccal massage, focusing on the muscles and tissues in the cheeks and jawline. This technique, with its deep pressure and circular motions, not only relaxes and tones the facial muscles but may also alleviate symptoms related to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD) and facial tension.
The journey concludes with LED therapy accompanied by sound healing, utilising vibrations and soothing sounds to enhance relaxation and balance. The treatment is a testament to the harmonious fusion of skincare and self-care, providing a holistic experience that leaves you not only with radiant skin but also a profound sense of well-being. For those seeking a transformative skincare journey intertwined with self-care, Donna Ryan's 90-minute Signature Treatment is a must-try.
The transformative power of LED masks is taking centre stage, if TikTok is anything to go by. Light therapy, harnessed through devices like theCurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Face Mask, has become a cornerstone in addressing a spectrum of skincare concerns, from acne management to anti-ageing benefits.
Red and blue light therapies, integral components of LED light therapy, play pivotal roles in addressing specific skincare needs. The 66 red (633nm) and 66 near-infrared (830nm) wavelengths embedded in the CurrentBody mask bring forth the potent advantages of red light therapy. This wavelength accelerates collagen production, promoting skin elasticity and calming redness while creating a more even skin tone. It becomes a formidable tool in the anti-ageing arsenal, working beneath the skin's surface to enhance blood circulation and deliver vital oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
Complementing the red light's anti-ageing prowess, blue light therapy, often operating at 415nm, is an effective solution for managing acne. By targeting acne-causing bacteria, specifically propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), blue light helps prevent and reduce breakouts. The combined use of red and blue light therapies offers a comprehensive approach, simultaneously addressing acne concerns and promoting a more youthful complexion.
When incorporating LED light therapy into your skincare routine, consistency is key. The CurrentBody mask is designed for convenient use 2-3 times per week for about 10-20 minutes per session. This frequency ensures optimal results without overexposing the skin to the clinically proven wavelengths. Elevate your skincare routine with this medically designed device and achieve radiant and rejuvenated skin.
