So you have just had a facial and you want the results to last longer. We all know that generally your skin bounces back to normal after a few days. But what if I told you, you can actually extend this period up to a week ? or even 2 ? See our list below for your how to get that post-complexion perfection :

1. Hydration : water is the number one factor to glowing, hydrated skin. Well-hydrated cells carry out their functions better.

2. Skincare routine : amp up your skincare routine. This does not mean using every cream in your cupboard to get maximum results. Oh, no, no. I mean strategically choosing the right creams that will promote the best appearance of your skin, i.e. if your focus was on eliminating dead skin cells, proper use of a day and night cream, teamed with a good cleanser, will help to eliminate any impurities your skin picks up in the day, making it easier for your skin to slough away the debris and dead skin cells.

3. Minimal makeup : keep makeup to a minimum. After a facial your skin cells are trying to regenerate themselves faster than normal. Allow your skin to breathe roughly for 48hrs before applying a face of makeup. And, if you are applying before this period or directly after your treatment, ensure you choose one that is mineral and free of nasties that might clog your pores. We love kylies mineral foundation x

One of the most common questions I have been asked as a therapist: will I break out after brow waxing or threading ? It is true that waxing or threading naturally will open your pores, but there are some simple steps you can take before and after your treatment where you won’t have to sacrifice killer brows for acne-free-skin.

before | cleanse skin thoroughly of impurities, including a fresh face (you will be surprised how much you accumulate on the skin even without makeup !) – also ask your therapist if he/she can also cleanse your skin before your treatment (all therapists should have a skin cleanser on hand to clear your skin of impurities before your treatment !)

after | looking, but no touching girls and boys ! you will also be surprised how much bacteria you carry on your hands each day. Touching this area constantly after your waxing can spread bacteria and germs to that area causing your skin to react and cause those nasty bumps to resonate.

engagement party inspo

When planning for an engagement party it is always extremely difficult finding a venue and finding a venue that houses all the guests you are wanting to invite. Not only are venues costly, but they also may not fit the style or look that encompasses your wedding theme. That is why, sometimes it is best and more cost effective to style your own engagement at your family home. My sister recently got married and instead of having the headache of planning, booking and prepping a venue, she was able to capture the look and feel that she really wanted by styling her dream “engagement party” at our family abode in Brookfield.
