We all want gorgeous glowing skin and the importance of this often only really hits home when we have major milestones or events happening in our life. You want to be feeling and looking your best when you don the white dress and walk down the aisle but healthy, happy skin doesn't happen overnight so here are a few top tips from the Pros at Legs 11 and ZO Skin Health.
Step one on your list to getting wedding-ready skin should be skin analysis with an aesthetician. Conducting a thorough skin analysis is one of the most important aspects not only for any beauty treatment to establish a diagnosis that will achieve the skin results that you’re looking for, but also for health reasons to ensure there are no underlying conditions that need to be addressed.
What’s important about skin analysis is that it gives you a clear picture of the current state of your skin, from which a treatment plan can be made. Therapist analyses the skin with a special UV light to assess specific skin concerns and identify underlying issues in the deeper layers of skin. Your therapist will also asks questions about your medical and lifestyle history. Legs 11 also recommend that you bring all the skin care products you are using along with you for your first appointment so that they can advise on the active ingredients you should be looking for in your products and make product recommendations from there. Your therapist will then design a personalised 6-12 month treatment program for your individual concerns and skin type, to best achieve your objectives.
If this is all new to you- there's no need to stress! Legs 11 have you covered and offer a complimentary skin analysis to all new clients.
One of the most popular Bridal facial treatments currently available in SA is the ZO Skin Brightening facial, and also offers a great way to test the feel of this incredible product range. Where traditional facial treatments and beauty products only focus on the skin surface, it often means that the source of the problem is not actually addressed.
We're big fans of the unique approach that ZO Skin Health takes on skin health restoration, by addressing skin issues on a cellular level - more like an inside-outside approach to skin care. Dr Obagi is behind it all and believes that it's never too late to prioritise your skin and that healthy skin is possible for every patient. In that case- sign us up!
