A new year signifies new beginnings and there’s nothing better than rejuvenating your skincare routine. To get you on the right path, Elemis has come up with a new range of five New Skin Solutions specifically addressing common skincare concerns. Whether you’re in dire need of brightening, hydrating, energising, resurfacing or illuminating, there’s something from this set made for your skin.
I visited Elemis’ spa in Debenhams on Oxford Street recently to find out exactly what skincare solution is right for me. The lovely Rita carried out my skin consultation with a map reading of my face and showed me these rather attractive images of my face highlighting the problematic areas. (God, I hate seeing my face in this way!) My woes are dehydration, visibility of pores and signs of ageing. Yeah, I’m starting to worry about the last one a lot.
You are given a print-out of your facial assessment form to marvel at, frame or recoil in horror. My report picked up on my pores (gah!), red areas on my cheeks and brown spots from sun damage (largely under my eyes and on my nose) amongst other things but overall, things weren’t too bad.
Then I was whisked into one of Elemis’ sound-proof private rooms for the prescribed New Skin Solution facial. In light of the results, Rita felt my skin was in need of a good dose of exfoliation and opted for the Resurface Skin Solutions package, using Elemis’s Tri-Enzyme technology to resurface the skin’s upper layers and reveal a glow.
The transformation after was staggering simply from a 15 minute treatment. My face looked radiant and felt so smooth – I actually didn’t recognise my reflection but it’s only when I stepped outside that the ice cold air hit my open pores that I realised how thorough that deep cleanse was.
Elemis usually offers 30 minute Power Booster Facials for £30 in their SpaPod but has teamed up with Grazia where you can book a free consultation and 15 minute facial (just like the one I had) to find out the right New Skin Solution set for you. It’s a great way to get a feel for the products and as you can see, the results are instant. What are you waiting for? Text FACIAL to 78070 and receive your code to quote when you book.
This offer runs until 14th February at selected John Lewis partnership stores, Harvey Nichols, Debenhams and House of Fraser stores only. For more on Grazia’s offer and to see the list of participating stores, visit http://lifestyle.one/grazia/hair-beauty/skin/elemis-reader-offer/.
