Seemingly my body has quite a lot in common with my car. It often runs on empty and fed the wrong fuel, too many cappuccinos and late-night meals, it inevitably leads to a breakdown – cue a sluggish body and an even more sluggish, stressed complexion.
The Cranberry Shaker Mask at Silkor Laser Medical Center is bursting with the anti-oxidant goodness of berries and fruit acids. It contains no harsh chemicals or skin nasties so is ideal for a natural skin pick-me-up or for those who are pregnant or have very sensitive skin.
Christine my therapist starts my treatment with a thorough cleanse and a clever cream scrub by French brand, Algologie – a plush skincare line using all natural ingredients from Brittany. A microdermabrasion soon follows to slough off dead skin cells leaving me feeling squeaky-clean and flushed cheeked. Up next is a thick, creamy face mask with cranberries extract. Packed with Omega-3 and 6 essential fatty acids that nourish and protect the skin, the mask has a wonderful cooling sensation and smells divine. You can feel it working, like a large cool glass of water for parched skin.
A slathering of Algologie cream and sunblock finish the facial and the one-hour treatment leaves my face feeling soft and supple to the touch. What’s more, my glued-to-my-iPhone fingers are also at ease, thanks to the extensive arm-and-hand-rub from Christine while I nod off for a few minutes. Bliss!
