As the seasons change, our skin's needs change, too. All throughout the year, our skin is subjected to tumultuous weather conditions—dry cold winds of the winter months, harsh UV rays during summer, and the humid monsoon weather (dirt and pollution being the constants)—that take a toll on its health and appearance. To maintain healthy, radiant skin, it is important to periodically nourish it, and tweaking your skincare routine to include seasonal facials is one of the steps towards it. Listed below are some facials that meet your skin's requirements and prepare it for any challenges Mother Nature throws at you.
When you think of revolutionary skincare, Kaya Clinic is one of the foremost names that come to mind. Twenty years since its inception, the brand continues to be a trusted treatment provider. Among the many treatments they offer, their special facials curated to address the effect the rainy season has on our skin, are recommended as they help relieve stress and rejuvenate the skin.
Their Ageless Multipeptide Luxury Facial is infused with bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol and hyaluronic acid. Bakuchiol minimises fine lines and dark spots and brightens dull skin, while hyaluronic acid enhances hydration. The 90-minute facial promises to leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.
Dermalogica is renowned to create tailor-made, personalised skincare routines and procedures to suit the many skin types and concerns. They have a range of specialised facials including PRO Bright, PRO Clear, PRO Calm, etc. to choose from. When we eventually move from the monsoon season into the winter months, our skin will crave extra care and moisture, and Dermalogica's PRO Calm facial does just that. It hydrates, balances the skin's pH levels, and restores the skin barrier, thereby reducing sensitivity and promoting calmer skin. It uses raspberry and lavender fruit extracts and includes aromatherapy with an essential oil blend of lavender, eucalyptus, and cypress, that calms the skin and promotes healing.
Dermalogica treatments are offered in all LOOKS salons.
