Jade rollers have been having a moment these past few years, yes. But if we really go back in time, we see that these are just modern tools to replace the age-old tradition of using your hands. A facial massage aids in cleansing your skin from the inside out by promoting lymphatic drainage. It also improves the appearance of fine lines and overall skin structure as it firms, tones, and tightens your skin. The process is soothing and can certainly be part of your self-care routine. Also remove any rings.
When I heard that IDS Aesthetics was launching a membership programme that allowed you to get unlimited facials, I was a bit sceptical. But it piqued my interest-I wanted to see if getting a lot of facials would actually make my skin better or worse, because sometimes even too much of a good thing can be bad. Think of it as the gym for your face. In the same way that you have a trainer or instructor to tailor an exercise programme for you at the gym, the therapists will pick out treatments based on your skin condition each time you visit. Having just returned from a holiday where I consistently reapplied sunscreen and probably didn't cleanse as well as I should have, my skin was bumpy from clogged pores.
If you cleanse, tone, moisturise and take your makeup off before bed then you're already doing a great job of looking after your skin. As well as a great at-home care regime and drinking as much water as possible, a professional facial at a beauty salon that specialises in skin can really take your complexion to the next level. Improving the look of lines, crow's feet and wrinkles can easily be done with the right treatment.
