“Take time to do what makes your soul happy.”
Although, I don’t subscribe to being a ‘girly-girl’ (or the negative connotations behind that statement, but that’s for another blog post entirely) I do love the idea of pampering and treating myself – especially when it’s all working towards an end goal. I love a facial, I love having my nails done and I love drinking wine with the ladies in beautiful places – it’s all a part of the general selfcare lifestyle of treating yourself (and your body) with respect. And the wine with friends is just a bonus.
As I have mentioned in our previous blog post, we’re on a skincare mission this year. We’re working hand in hand with Belinda to resurface and rejuvenate my skin after years of treatments that have left me aging rapidly. JustBe Aesthetics in Rondebosch, Cape Town is owned and run by beautiful Belinda Kingsley, and with 25 years of insider knowledge and experience (with so many incredible reviews praising her!), and the biggest passion for skin care I’ve ever seen – I couldn’t be happier to have her by my side on this journey and partnership.
Around a month ago, I had my first treatment in my skincare journey done – and I couldn’t have been more impressed.
Just to clarify and explain what a skin peel is all about, I found a great quote from Health24 explaining the different types of peels out there:
“Chemical peels are classified according to the depth to which they penetrate. Superficial peels remove only the outermost layer of skin (the stratum corneum) and are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, even out skin tone and to treat acne. Medium-depth peels remove the epidermis, and deep peels can remove down to the papillary dermis. As they penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, they create a wound response and also stimulate collagen production. These peels are available in the various strengths – and the appropriate strength will be chosen to suit your skin’s requirements.”
IMAGE SIGNATURE FACELIFT PEEL
TIME: 30 – 40 mins | PRICE: R650 (includes an awesome mini hand massage)
When you hear words like ‘face list’ and ‘skin peel’ – your heart skips a little beat. But this couldn’t have been a more gentle and relaxing process. The enzyme based peel treatment that we did was a superficial peel – so did not hurt at all! The IMAGE Signature Facelift Peel is perfect for people who have acne and acne scarring, dry & dehydrated skin, rosacea, smokers skin, sun damage, pigmentation, or even just dull skin that needs a pick me up.
This awesome emzyme peel is said to remove any of that surface debris and liven, brighten and lift up the skin – leaving the face feeling basically brand new – fresher than ever. The 4-layer peel is so easy! And the IMAGE products used just smell incredible! All I can think about is the strong smell of oranges from the vitamin-c. I’ve had facials before, but this one left my skin VISIBLY glowing and feeling refreshed and alive.
A peel is not just a once off treatment, so please make sure you find out about what is next in your journey to maintain results. Belinda has recommended that I use the IMAGE Vital-C Anti Aging Serum as well as the IMAGE Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser – both of which I will do a review on soon, and can both be purchased from JustBe Salon after your treatments. And please PLEASE always remember that should you be having these sorts of peeling treatments, please remember to be using a high SPF sunscreen daily (seriously, don’t test this!).
