It’s a cold Saturday in January and I am making my way to Earlsfield’s very first Guinot Salon to try their signature Hydradermie Facial. As I walked into the light & airy salon, I felt like I had stepped into a spa. I felt instantly relaxed and looked forward to being pampered. I was greeted by the owner and therapist Justyna, who offered me a herbal Rose hip tea and then I was led into the treatment room, where I had a pre-treatment consultation.
During the consultation, we chatted about my skin type and my skin care regime. The therapist Justyna, was really perceptive and made many suggestions on how to look after my skin. My skin is always incredibly dry this time of year so it was good to come away with some practical tips on how to look after it.
I was booked in for the Hydradermie Youth Facial, a personalized treatment which rejuvenates the skin by increasing the cellular energy. Guinot has developed a series of non-evasive treatments which repair the damage and stress caused to the skin by re-awaking the skin cells, eliminating the toxins and accelerating cellular regeneration by increasing the oxygen levels and thermal energy within the skin.
Justyna, made me feel completely at ease by talking me through each step of the treatment and what we would achieve. She asked what I hoped to get out of it which I replied was “to hydrate my tired & dry skin and to make me look like younger”. Understandably, she couldn’t work miracles but I was excited to see what the treatment would bring.
As I lay on the heated seat, feeling more relaxed than ever. My treatment began with a cleanse to remove any make up or moisturiser I was previously wearing. Once the facial began, the ionisation process was employed which enables rapid absorption of the ingredients used to lock in hydration from within the skin. There were several techniques including a special roller to help work the products within the skin.
As we approached the end, a sebum extraction was applied followed by a dreamy face and shoulder massage. When I finally woke up, I could see how bright and luminous my skin looked. Quite often after facials my skin returns to how it was before. However it has been two weeks and my skin is feeling incredibly soft and hydrated. Even my make up looks even and sits nicely on the surface.
After the facial, my Justyna wrote down a prescription of products which she thought would help with my skin care regime and gave me some samples to take home. I was so impressed by the treatment and the impeccable service I’d received and I vowed to return.
