Many years ago a man would judge the state of a woman’s dry skin and then decide, based on the amount of dry crevices in her leathery face, if he wanted to club her over the head and drag her back to his cave or not. Thankfully men have evolved from picking their dates based on dry-skin swatches to now joining their leathery creviced other halves and getting their J-Lo Glo on with good facials. These days, lack of good skincare is social suicide so up your popularity with a Beauty Wise facial for R99.
Thanks to modern-day stress, skin loses elasticity and moisture fast. It promotes dryness, which doesn’t instigate moments of, ‘your skin feels like sandpaper, I’d like to massage it’. It just doesn’t happen. What does happen is that when your body is stressed it releases hormones that cause irritation in the skin and the effects are the same as the natural ageing process.
As you get older, all those golden summer tans, cocktails, bad diet, late night parties and cursed genetics come into play. These factors, as much fun as they are for you, are no fun for your epidermis. Basically, don’t have fun, you’ll look younger. However, while less stress equals more vitality, stress is part of life and you have to up your game when it comes to looking after your skin.
Because daily cleansing, toning and moisturising rituals are not enough anymore, the trusted Beauty Wise therapists will put the vibe back into your Buffalo hide with Environ and Nimue products. The basic facial will pour moisturised life back into your derma and rejuvenate the stressed-out cells. These skin psychologists will advise you on your skin type and what you can do to prevent further skin damage later in life.
Environ and Nimue are extremely well regarded skincare products. Their ingredients are of the highest quality and the results are quite something to behold. Go on; get that, ‘you don’t look a day older than 16’ look.
Aging fact: It is rumoured that Raadiyah’s cupcake icing is the perfect face-mask. The benefits are not even remotely close to those of approved facial masks made of cow dung, but it’s tons of fun when you have to lick the icing off your face. Those who don’t like icing on their faces get their kicks at gym.
