You all know how much of a skincare junkie I am. I truly believe in being nice to your skin and your skin will be nice to you! So when SkinCeuticals reached out to me to try out the Triple Lipid Restorative Facial at NOVA Plastic Surgery using all SkinCeuticals products, I was so in!
From the moment I walked in NOVA Plastic Surgery’s office, I was blown away. It truly felt like an upscale spa with marble countertops and pretty pink sofas.
I met Dani who first asked me about my skincare routine, what type of skin I have and any problems with my skin that I wanted to address. As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, I always try to be honest with you all when it comes to my skin, and Dani was no exception! She immediately made me feel comfortable sharing my insecurities and recommended the perfect facial for my skin type and to address the problem areas I felt I had with my skin.
First, Dani used a gentle cleanser followed by an equalizing toner. Both instantly made my skin feel so much better and prepped my skin for the micro sensitive peel nicknamed the “red carpet peel” as celebrities often get this peel the day of an event as it leaves your skin with a healthy glow that doesn’t leave your skin feeling sensitive.
The 2% lactic acid present in the micro sensitive peel exfoliates your skin while simultaneously leaving it beautiful and glowing. Caroline was taking pictures throughout the facial and immediately said how much better my skin looked already!
After the peel, Dani used steam and did some extractions to help relieve my skin of some of the cyst-like acne on my chin. When acne is present on the chin, it is in response to stress, which I have been inundated with lately from traveling, planning my wedding and managing my business! Needless to say, my skin was dying for a little TLC.
Extractions can often leave your face red and stressed out, so Dani then applied a green serum called a Phyto Corrective Gel that helps to sanitize and soothe skin after extractions.
Next was my favorite part, the face mask! Dani used the Hydrating B5 Masque with Triple-Lipid Restore 2:4:2. This mask also includes vitamin C and a hydrating serum to restore your skin and its natural firmness. It left my skin feeling so good and there was no burning sensation which is always a plus!
Dani then used the equalizing toner followed by the CE Ferulic which included more Vitamin C, a necessary vitamin to keep your skin happy and healthy!
Next, Dani used the H.A. Intensifier. Many skin products contain hyaluronic acid, but this intensifier includes 30% more to leave your skin moisturized and plump to restore its healthy glow!
To finish up the best facial I have ever had, Dani then used the Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 followed by the A.G.E. eye complex to combat under eye bags that we all seem to suffer from.
Lastly, Dani stressed the importance of SPF. No matter the season or weather, it is so important to use an SPF every day to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. The Physical Matte UV Defense has SPF 50 and a tint to it that’s perfect for summer weather when you don’t want to wear any makeup!
I walked out of NOVA Plastic Surgery feeling like a new woman! All of the acne on my chin that I was having so many issues with was now completely flat and no longer inflamed. You can truly see the drastic difference in my skin in the before and after pictures I took.
Skincare is so important. Getting one facial won’t solve all of your problems, so it’s important to treat your body right with a healthy diet, lots of water, and establish an AM and PM skincare routine.
Everyone has their own imperfections. I am so happy I found a place that not only educates you on your skin and the products you’re putting on it, but doesn’t make you feel bad about your skin either! Triple Lipid Restorative Facial for the win!!
