New Treatment – Japanese Facelift

By |06/03/2021|

New treatment – Japanese Facelift A deeply relaxing, anti-stress, anti-ageing facial treatment.

By |27/02/2021|Tags: , |

Cleanse dry skin like a professional with these expert tips. Rachel Marie Walsh reports Dry skin is often at its tightest after cleansing. This skin type is often a sign of a depleted moisture-retention (hydrolipidic) barrier and the wrong products or habits can make it feel drier. I asked skincare expert Mariga Sheedy — who usually deals with dry skin problems every day at her clinics in Wexford Town and [...]

By |12/02/2021|

Night time ritual for #selfloveday: I’m not a great sleeper historically and over the years I’ve tried lots of things to help me sleep. One of the most important things I’ve learned is to establish a routine that I stick to before getting in to bed and I definitely notice the difference if I don’t do it. I thought for #selfloveday I would share my wind-down routine in case it [...]

Don’t Want To Wear Foundation?

By |11/02/2021|

Don’t want to wear foundation? One of the most common things I hear in new client consultations is that you don’t want to have to wear foundation. While lots of us like makeup, it is definitely preferable to wear it when you feel like it because you want to and you enjoy it, not because you feel like you can’t go out without foundation on. Wearing masks of course makes [...]

Daily Habits For Healthy Skin

By |26/01/2021|

Daily habits for healthy skin. Before a skin can be beautiful, soft and radiant, it always has to be healthy. Even the very best skincare can only work on improving the skin cells that have already been created in the lower layers of your skin structure, and migrated through a maturing process up to the surface where we can see them, and work on them. (There are some treatments such [...]

Eye Area Focus

By |22/01/2021|

By |22/12/2020|

Can ONE facial really make a difference to your skin? Ooh I wish I had a penny for every time someone wanted to book a facial 'to get rid of wrinkles' or to 'reverse pigmentation'.
