10 Simple things I have learnt from visiting a beauty salon

Beauty Basket

When it comes to beauty and skincare, there are plenty of little things that we can do daily to prevent breakouts, slow-down the ageing process and improve skin texture but that we take for granted or don’t include in our beauty regime.

I’ve always been into makeup and beauty but I must admit my skincare routine was lacking… Being in my late 20’s now and having inherited a fairly dry skin, I am starting to freak out a bit about ageing and wanted to do something that my future self would thank me for.

After doing some research, I thought I’d give the dermafrac treatment a go.

If you are not familiar with this therapy, it involves 4 steps combining microdermbrasion, microneedling , product infusion and light therapy.  I visited ‘Skindeep‘ in Perth on the 15th April and after the treatment, ended up signing for their 4 weeks ‘skin bootcamp’. I treated my skin to 4 medi-spa treatments (alternating dermafrac and omnilux), 4 detox booth sessions and gathered some very good tips along the way!

  1. Stop touching your face! 
  2. Wash your hands, often
  3. Drink at least 2L of water per day
  4. Invest in good quality skincare (yes, it is expensive but it’s worth it!)
  5. Clean your make up brushes weekly
  6. Change your pillow case after each professional treatment 
  7. Get to know your skin and its needs
  8. Apply SPF 50 on your skin daily
  9. Remove your make up (being drunk is no excuse!)
  10. Don’t be scared to seek professional assistance or guidance

Since then, I have upgraded my skincare routine and have followed the above tips to the letter. My skin looks and feels better already, the texture has improved, I breakout less often and have a brighter younger and healthier looking skin (Bonus being I already received compliments about my skin!)

What is the top beauty tips you wish you knew when you were younger?
