PRE-VACAY PREP

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR WHERE US AUSSIES TAKE A BREAK FROM THE WINTER CHILL & HEAD TO A WARMER CLIMATE TO RECHARGE OUR BATTERIES. I'M 1 WEEK, 1 DAY AND 5 HOURS AWAY FROM MY DEPARTURE (NOT THAT I'M COUNTING)... BRING IT ON! 

UNFORTUNATELY CHILLY NIGHTS SPENT IN FRONT OF A BLAZING OPEN FIRE AND DRINKING RED WINE DOESN'T USUALLY EQUATE TO GLOWING SUMMER READY SKIN. SO IT IS PRE-VACAY PREP TIME LADIES (AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU ARE THAT WAY INCLINED).  

FIRST THINGS FIRST, IMPLEMENTING A GOOD SKIN CARE REGIME IS PARAMOUNT DURING ANY SEASON. I HAVE OPTED FOR THE ASPECTS DR RANGE. HERE IS MY EASY STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE:

CLEANSER, SERUMS & MOISTURISER - ASPECTS DR

CLEANSER, SERUMS & MOISTURISER - ASPECTS DR

2 PUMPS OF THIS BAD BOY (DEEP CLEAN FACIAL CLEANSER), A DAMP FACE & SOME CIRCULAR MOTION FOR 30 SECONDS. 

DEPENDING ON WHETHER YOU ARE RISING OR GETTING HORIZONTAL, USE THE ACTIVE C SERUM (FOR THE AM) & THE EXFOL A SERUM (FOR THE PM), FOLLOWED BY A GOOD PUMP OF THE RESVERATROL MOISTURISING CRÈME

MY NEW SKINCARE GURU'S AT IDENTAL RECOMMEND USING THESE PRODUCTS FOR 2 WEEKS TO START YOUR SKIN DETOX, BEFORE FOLLOWING UP WITH FACIALS. 

AFTER USING THESE PRODUCTS FOR THE GUIDED 2 WEEKS, I OPTED FOR MICRODERMABRASION BEFORE A FULL ON FACIAL & LED LIGHT TREATMENT. 

I THINK I NOW HAVE A SERIOUS ADDICTION TO MICRODERMABRASION... IT WAS SO QUICK & (RELATIVELY) PAINLESS FOR INSTANT DECONGESTION. NEXT IN LINE WAS THE FACIAL... MY SKIN SOAKED THIS S&%T UP! SERIOUSLY THIS MADE MY SKIN FEEL LIKE SILK. TO FINISH OF THIS PAMPER SESH, I OPTED FOR THE LED LIGHT TREATMENT. THE MULTITUDE OF COLOURED LIGHTS WORK TO TARGET DIFFERENT KEY ISSUES. I HAD BOTH THE BLUE LED TO PREVENT FUTURE BREAKOUTS (AND ZAPS ANY BLEMISHES YOU MAY HAVE) & THE RED LED LIGHT WHICH STIMULATES THE PRODUCTION OF COLLAGEN (YES PLEASE) & REDUCES THE APPEARANCE OF ANY UNWANTED SPOTS & DOTS... BECAUSE WHO WANTS THAT!? 

BEFORE MIC-DROPPING & WALK OUT THE DOOR (FEELING COMPLETELY INVIGORATED & READY TO VACAY), I GRABBED MYSELF THE SOCIÉTÉ TINTED PRIMER WITH SPF TO PRIME & DEFEND MYSELF WHILE LAPPING UP THE EUROPEAN SUMMER. 

OK I'M GOING TO GO PACK NOW. SEE YOU GUYS FOR MY POST HOLIDAY HYDRATION!
