Hello Self Care Sunday. I hope you have had an amazing weekend. Now it’s time to give you some mojo.
On the week leading up to my book launch, I was invited into the amazing Beyond Medispa, in Harvey Nichols, Edinburgh to trial out their HydraFacial. I was also lucky to get the opportunity to experience the new revive wellness vitamin drips. An actual mojo injection has arrived in Edinburgh.
This is ideal if you are under the weather and need to be in top form. Some also book in if they are hungover or recovering from a virus and need a boost. The salon have a copy of my book now too so if you fancy a double mojo injection then look no further.
A lot of you will know that I adore facials. The HydraFacial treatment uses a non-invasive skin resurfacing technology which works to restore youthful, healthy skin. This lovely pampering facial is perfect before a special event, as it it known for it’s instantly noticable results.
The most detailed facial I have had to date, this treatment centres around six stages which detoxify the skin, remove dead skin cells, extract debris and provide lasting hydration to protect and rebuild collagen levels. These can be customised to safely and effectively address specific skin concerns. For me, a big issue is hydration. The HydraFacial uses advanced, patented vortex technology to deliver the most desirable nutrients and antioxidants to the skin. It was an interesting sensation on the skin, the vacuum-based tip removes skin impurities whilst dramatically increasing the hydration of your skin. I was worried it would be painfully but no it was actually really relaxing and also quite a satisfying feeling.

If you are a facial or spa geek like myself, I have put the full stages of this facial below and you can find out more about the treatments here.
SKIN HEALTH FOR LIFE
Step 1 – Detox
Lymphatic drainage helps to increase circulation of the lymphatic system. This increases blood flow to the area, bringing oxygen to support the cells whilst also bringing fresh clean lymph to restore hydration, tone and firm the skin, and eliminate toxins.
Step 2 – Cleansing And Exfoliation
Dead skin cells are gently exfoliated to reveal healthy, new skin whilst, simultaneously, a serum containing lactic acid, glucosamine and many botanical extracts is delivered deeply to cleanse and nourish the skin.
Step 3 – Brightening Agent
This gentle glycolic and salicylic solution helps loosen debris from your pores ready for the extraction stage whilst brightening the appearance of the skin.
Step 4 – Extraction
Effortless extractions help to remove blackheads and draw out impurities in congested areas using a serum of natural salicylic acid and honey extract.
Step 5 – Hydration
HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion technology delivers a cocktail of hydrating hyaluronic acid and the most advanced and powerful antioxidants, peptides and multi-peptides to replenish the skin, leaving it hydrated, plumped up and at optimum skin health.
Step 6 – Rejuvenation
Red and infrared LED light is used to reduce redness and further stimulate collagen. The light also supports the natural production of vitamin D, leaving your skin glowingBEFORE & AFTERS
