Hey all!!!  👋👋👋

It's week 32 as face of Mint!!  💚

I'm booked in with Iza for a DERMALOGICA Prescriptive Facial 💆

Dermalogica is my go-to skincare for when I'm at home...
It always seems to do the trick in keeping my skin on good behavior 😌
I love the idea of a professional prescriptive facial as it is tailor made to suit your skin needs. 

The treatment started out with getting nice and cosy on the treatment bed 😌
Iza then began with a soothing eye and lip cleanse and then double cleansed the face,  finishing with an ultra calming mist toner.

Here comes the fun bit....
Now it was time for "dermalogica face mapping and skin analysis"

This is where the therapist thoroughly analyzes the skin,  revealing it's condition in order to choose the products that would be most effective in the treatment 👌

It turned out that my skin was a little sensitive and dehydrated with a little hyper pigmentation over all and blocked pores around my nose and chin.

After Iza explained the products she would be using and why she chose them for my skin, she began with exfoliation. 
The best thing about Dermalogica is that so many products can be used together when getting a professional facial...  So they really pack a punch in delivering the good skin health that we all hope for!! 👊 🙏

Iza mixed the multivitamin power exfoliator with exfoliant accelerator 35 which is prescribed for hyper pigmentation/sun spots. This not only helps to exfoliate the skin,  but it helps to brighten it too 🌌

After this...  It was onto extraction of those pesky blocked pores and blackheads 😷
Not the most fun part of the facial lol....  But so beneficial to the skin!  Iza made sure to seal the pores after this.

Then it was onto relaxatioooooonnnn!!!  Aaaah yessss!  😍😍😍
Massage cream and calming botanical mixer were used for this and it smelled DIVINE!! 
It was so so relaxing and such a treat!  💗

Next step was the mask.
This was custom made for my skin,  using the sebum clearing mask on my nose and chin with the MediBac complex in order to help tighten my pores and for the rest of the face we used the collocoil, multivitamin power recovery mist and age smart complex. 

Last on the list was moisturizer in the form of Intensive moisture balance ( my fave!  ❤)  followed by Pure Light spf50 which is not only amazing for sun protection,  but it also brightens the skin too!  🌞

And of course we can't forget the multivitamin power firm eye cream...  For keeping those ever increasing little wrinkles at bay 😉

And then we were done!
Iza was so professional as always, she wrote out my skin analysis for me and gave me so much great information on the products and what would be good for my home routine.

I often suffer from from dehydration (I'm so bad at drinking water 🙊)  and my skin can suffer from flakey patches from time to time.
Out of all the amazing Dermalogica products I have used so far...
My Dermalogica "skin hero" has to be the Intensive Moisture Balance Moisturizer that I've been using for soooo long now and it literally does what it says and intensively moisturize's dry and dehydrated skin!!  👌

If you have skin that is in need of a bit of help...  It's definitely worthwhile making an appointment in mint for a skin Analysis.  With the right products and healthy skin it can completely change your confidence!!  Not only making you look good on the outside,  but feeling good on the inside too 😊❤

While I was up at mint I also had by brows threaded and tinted my Mairead!!  I love Mairead...  We always have so much fun 😊 I was so happy with how they had turned out. 
From my previous blogs,  you'llknow how much I love threading!!  🙌 it just gives such a great finish to the brows.
It had been a couple of weeks since I had them done so the were in a bad state as you could imagine! 😂 lol
But thankfully,  Mairead saved the day and brought me back to #browsonfleek 😘

I also had my nails redone.  I just couldn't resist the new Icelandic range from OPI!! 😱😱😱😍😍😘
