    I’ve never had a facial but have always wanted one at some point in my life. Your skin was definitely glowing✨ I love how your posts are always so informative and detailed with insight into your experience. I could imagine the while process as if I were watching.

      Thank you girl! It’s funny I’m drinking so much water now since my facial. It’s worth doing. I know it’s expensive to keep up regularly, but even one appointment is beneficial.
      I will definitely book another. x

      I’m a sweet-tooth addict and I know the feeling. I sometimes convince myself it’s ok if it’s maple syrup or something and not cookies lol. Thank you for reading girl! xx

    I have never done a facial since from 10 years, just I find really amazing and creative ways to pamper myself with homemade masks, scrubs and cream. There comes a point though where home remedies simply won’t do the job. Now I just embrace and love my acne prone skin (not much just a little)…my mantra is…. ‘when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change’ .

      That’s a wonderful mantra to have. I never knew you had acne prone skin. Homemade recipes feel amazing but I get what you mean…they can only go so far.

    I loved this! Many people don’t realize that what we put in our bodies has a huge affect on our skins, and we are falsely advertised that we can fix it by means of skin care products.

      Thank you Natalie! I just think that skin is pretty complicated and putting all hope on one product or two is a big risk. Time and time again, being healthy has been shown to be hugely beneficial both inside and out.

      I appreciate you reading 🙂

    Glad that they gave you good advice for your skin. I have had acne since my teens and still struggle with a lot. I’ve never done a facial since some dermatologists dont recommend doing facial with acne. I guess I could try consulting a doc or facialist if its possible for some advice on my skin since I really do need help with my dry and acne prone skin.

      I know that you can get specific facials for acne and I think that it depends on what one and who does it. But if you are thinking of getting a facial, I would actually book an app. with a consultant or dermatogist first etc and see what they suggest.
      Because they might turn around and say actually get this treatment done.
      Facials are good generally for maintenance of your skin. It’s like a dentist app. for teeth. They can add hydration, check your skin conditions, recommend advice, remove spots etc. But they are not treatments in the same way as laser or peels if that makes sense?
      My biggest advice would be to check your products – do you have dry skin naturally? If you are getting spots, It’s more likely dehydrated. In which case you would need hydration.
      Of course I’m not a skin expert but I kept trying to experiment – taking away dairy, then wheat etc to find a cause. The worst thing about acne is it can be from anything.
      What I did like about my facial is that I was told exactly that there’s bacteria and how to remove it. x

    Great insight to your treatment at Harley Street, I’ve heard of them but not about what is involved and what advice they give you. Skincare is so important and also understanding how to help maintain healthy skin. You’re looking fabulous so it’s clearly working! Xxx

      Thank you! It’s crazy how nervous I got posting these images, which kind of reminds me that I have a long way to go before gaining full confidence.
      Facials themselves are good for checking in with your skin. I liked that I had specific advice because normally I get ‘your skin could be’ or ‘this may work’.
      From what I gather, the massaging techniques have a range of benefits and they use the best technology you can’t buy at home to target specific concerns. It’s kind of like a dentist app where they check teeth and do some non surgical work. Xxx

        Sounds so interesting I think I will give them a go myself. I like the specific focus on your skin rather than it be labelled as combination or the likes! You really shouldn’t feel nervous, I totally understand why but you’re inspiring others as you share, that’s a big confidence tick in my box. Big love xxxxx

    Love your post! I have acne since adolescence, my skin is extremely oily. It’s not easy. It is a problem that affects self esteem. But my doctor is a excellent professional and I can keep my skin treated and well. xx

I would love to read your thoughts!
