Bonjour everyone!! I hope you are reading this in great spirits. We are approaching the end of a fabulous week and I couldn’t let the week come to a close without a little ME time.
As productive members of society, we spend so much time working. Work, work, work, work!!! And when we’re done working, its time to cook dinner and get the kids to bed! When do we take time out, drop everything and pamper ourselves? Lately, the best way I treat myself is with monthly facials. Total game changer!! When it comes to skincare, I am always trying to be one step ahead. Your skin is everything! Its sort of like a mirror that tells it all. What you put into your body shows through your skin. So, one can imagine how excited I was to get my first facial.
After a recommendation from a friend and a few Google searches, I came across Totality Medispa; located on Daniel Island. What drew me into this place was (1) The awesome reviews that I saw online and (2) how great the person who recommended them skin looked! Her skin was so smooth and glowy, I just wanted the results she had.
So, I booked an appointment and went in. O-M-G! The decor in this place was so chic and welcoming. When I walked through the door I knew that I was in the right place. The booking process was super easy and the staff was friendly. I worked with Brittany and she was soooo sweet and VERY knowledgeable. Not only was she able to assess my skin and suggest products for my skincare needs, she also recommended other services that would suit my skin concerns as well.
This past visit, I was introduced to the Waterfacial. This service is a 3-step process that consists of Cleansing, Exfoliating and Infusing. This service is great for those suffering with acne, hyperpigmentation and even wrinkles. Now that you have an idea of what this service is, lets jump into the process! 🙂
So my main skin concern is that I have hyperpigmentation on the left side of my face. I will admit, whenever I get a pimple, YES, I have to squeeze it!! That is the one thing you never want to do because then you’re left with scarring that then turns into dark spots (from sun exposure) and voila…now you’ve got a bigger problem on your hands.
So, we began the process by cleansing the skin. Quite obviously, cleansing the skin before going into a routine is essential because you want to remove any lingering oils or makeup. After Brittany cleansed my face, she applied a warm towel to open the pores and wipe the remaining product away from the skin.
After cleansing my skin, we moved on to the next step. During this step, Brittany went over my face with a Hydradermabrasion device. As she went over each section of my face, she began to decongest my skin by using a mild salicylic & glycolic peel. This was pretty cool and felt really tingly as she was doing it.
Step 3 was pretty cool and kinda gross. EXTRACTIONS!!! This process can be done a few ways. Either by hand or by using an extraction tool. Brittany used her hands and that was much better for me personally. During this process, she used her fingers to push on areas of my nose and began to push the gunk out. You could see the white beads coming out of my pores. GROSS….but cool.
After the extraction process, she used the same tool to push antioxidants into my skin. After the cleansing and exfoliating process, your skin can get dried out so they push those healthy antioxidants back into the skin for ultimate hydration.
After completing the hydrating process, she applies a serum to your face to protect and seal the skin. But wait…you’re not done yet. Brittany was so gracious to show me all of the crap that was sucked out my skin. Are you ready!?
After my Waterfacial Service, I was left with glowing hydrated skin. Although some have reported to seeing results after one visit, it is recommended to get monthly services. This is something that I personally will continue to incorporate in my skincare regimen and I will most definitely keep you guys updated on my progress.
I truly hope you enjoyed reading about my spa experience. If you’re ever in the Daniel Island area, check out Totality Medispa and book your appointment for your next pamper session. See you later and God Bless. xoxo
