I have always wished for one thing in regards to my beauty routine and that was fantastic skin!
I have been working with Dermalogica now for some time to get the perfect routine for my skin and after my session at the Dermalogica Academy, I am sure we have found the groove I have been looking for.
My session at the Academy started by meeting Sarah, an instructor. Sarah shook my hand as she smiled and spoke with the “spa voice”, as I call it. You know, the quiet, soothing voice that is the opposite of what you hear all day on the streets of New York? I already loved her. I was then taken to a small locker room and given a robe to put on. After I was dressed, I was taken to the treatment room where there are about a dozen treatment chairs and although there are roughly 20 people is this room, it was somehow serenely quiet. I have had many facials in my lifetime, but this ‘facial treatment’ was profoundly different. There was no squeezing of my pores, or digging and pulling at my skin. It was soothing and in a word… different.
They use a metal roller over your skin that requires a clamp on your arm to ‘ground’ the metallic charge. This roller treatment was prefaced with the question “are you pregnant and/or have any metal pins or plates in your body?” and was told to take off my wedding rings! This process is done to kill the underlying bacteria in your skin and to neutralize your skin’s Ph. Finally, a pressure point massage was done that creates a ‘draining’ effect (skin, sinuses and mind) and left me feeling lifted and relaxed. The whole treatment was a new experience and was definitely unique.
After my facial treatment was over, the ever amazing Sarah took me to the front of the Academy and went over my whole skincare routine with me instructing me on the products I was using that were beneficial for me and which were not. Everything was written down, labeled, and explained in great detail.
I left there with a new routine, an amazing story to tell, a standing monthly appointment and one ginormous compliment from my husband on the appearance of my makeup free skin.
Thank you Dermalogica Academy. I am forever grateful and forever a client!
