There is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t apply some kind of make up to my face, over time it really starts to take it’s toll. When Kaya Skin Clinic invited me to come for some TLC and a facial I jumped at the chance.
Living in this hot and dusty climate our pores get clogged easily leading to breakouts and oily T-zones. Recently my face has looked dull and tired after a long, sweaty summer in desperate need of rejuvenation.
Usually I am dubious about facials, it always felt like an unnecessary indulgence of fancy smelling creams and not much else but in the name of research I was prepared to give it a shot. I am happy to tell you that Kaya have totally changed my opinion of facials.
I opted for the Kaya Aqua Radiance facial as it claims to “keep your skin looking youthful and beautiful”, find me a woman who doesn’t want that?!
Aqua Radiance; “draws on the healing properties of oxygen and water to replenish skin cells and repair the damage caused by UV rays and daily life in a stressful or polluted environment, while cleansing down to the deepest layer of your skin” – Sounds perfect doesn’t it?
Lying back and closing my eyes my face was cleansed and massaged to take off the surface impurties. Then a special Lymphatic massage helps to push all nasty toxins away.
Now for the main attraction – Cold saline water and oxygen is pressure blasted through a small nozzle taking away top layers of dead skin leaving the under layers free to breathe. The process doesn’t hurt at all but the cold can take your breath away when applied to the thin skin around the eyes.
Remember as a teenager standing onfront of the mirror squeezing those pesky black heads? Well this lady does all that ugly bit for you. It’s a little painful but you know it’s worth the pain for that clear, spot free skin.
To finish up the session a luxourius and rehydrating face mask was applied and left for 20 minutes to work it’s magic.
All in all, the facial was a blast – literally. Removing all that grime from my face feels so refreshing and now my skin feels so much cleaner, brighter and dare I say it…. at least 5 years younger!
The staff were pleasant and helpful explaining the procedure at step and were able to answer all my questions. Leaving Kaya I felt relaxed and very happy with my fresh, rejuvenated skin.
