It’s Valentine’s Day – a date when your inbox is brimming with gift ideas for the one(s) you love, and shop windows are bursting with hearts, flowers, and reminders to treat someone special. But, this year, we’re putting the focus on you, and we think that you should do the same with self-care. Because, in the end, we believe that love starts with you.
You shouldn’t need an excuse to indulge in self-care, but if you’re looking for an incentive, consider this your sign. Make this Valentine’s Day the day you begin a new, feel-good routine that – bonus – also gives you your glowiest skin yet. If you feel your best when you’ve taken time out for a treatment or perfected your home beauty ritual, then this is the (self-)gifting guide you really want to see.
1. Start your journey with a skin analysis
A new skin-boosting, self-care journey begins with understanding your complexion and uncovering what it needs via a VISIA Skin Analysis. If you’re as fascinated as we are by the way skin works, and you love to track results, this initial stage will set you on the right path to clearer, calmer, smoother skin.
Think of it as an x-ray for the layers of your skin. The clever device measures pigmentation, pore size, texture and wrinkles to determine your skin’s ‘starting point’ at the beginning of your journey. From there, your Mallucci London skin expert will recommend a bespoke at home skincare regimen and set of treatments to plump and refine your pores. This routine is bespoke to you, and the results can then be monitored with future VISIA appointments.
2. Curate an at-home skin routine that works
We work with only the most effective, medical grade skincare brands in the clinic, which you can also enjoy at home, by finding them on the Mallucci London Shop. During your VISIA Skin Analysis, your practitioner will tailor a regimen to your skin’s unique needs, featuring products from SkinCeuticals, IS Clinical and ZO. Your skin deserves all the love it can get, and we truly believe there are no better products than these. Take them home, and indulge in a skin ritual that really works. Not only will you start to see results quickly, but the routine itself will feel like a joy; especially at night, when you can take a little time that’s just for you.
3. Indulge in high-powered HydraFacials
The most enjoyable facial ever? We think so. The HydraFacial is a six-phase treatment that puts your pores through their paces to reveal a glow like no other. These steps are as follows:
Step 1: Lymphatic drainage to increase blood circulation.
Step 2: Deep cleansing and exfoliation to remove dead layers of skin.
Step 3: A chemical Peel to give the skin a glow.
Step 4: Extractions to eliminate blackheads and impurities.
Step 5: Hydration, by bathing skin with a bespoke blend of antioxidants.
Step 6: LED light to stimulate collagen and kill bacteria.
The deep exfoliation, the drenching hydration, and the fact that you can see the dirt suck out from your pores guarantees major satisfaction. Trust us: you’ve never tried a facial quite like it. Plus, at Mallucci London, we can personalise your treatment with add-ons from the HydraBar. This could be anything from a pore-clearing boost of oxygen, to cheekbone-sculpting radiofrequency. The choice is up to you.
4. Bathe your complexion in LED
You’ll experience the powers of LED during your HydraFacial, but, trust us: once you’ve tried it once, you’re going to want to come back for more. It’s a deeply relaxing treatment – lie back and let the light do its radiance-boosting work – plus, these innovative lamps have a big impact on the look and feel of your skin. Choose red LED to smooth and target inflammation, and blue LED to fight acne-causing bacteria. Your Mallucci London practitioner can also give you a mix of the two for a more personalised treatment.
This self-care skin journey is easy to follow and, most importantly, it’s all about making you feel good, taking time out for yourself, and showing your skin some much-needed love. Want to find out more? Contact us to begin your bespoke routine.
