How to glow this festive season

The festive season is almost upon us, meaning a host of Christmas parties, family reunions, and nights out are probably on the agenda. Plenty of fun to be had, along with a belly full of hard-to-resist yummy treats and a high chance of one too many alcoholic drinks! All that neatly tied into a pretty package with the stress of last-minute Christmas shopping and what happens? A breakout… 

At-home treatments

Invest in some good-quality sheet masks! The Mask by WOW facial isn’t just any sheet mask, it’s a #WOW sheet mask.  It has a powerful punch of active ingredients that offer anti-inflammatory, calming, and antiseptic properties, making it the ideal treatment to prepare your skin for a big night out celebrating. The Mask is loaded with stem cells and peptides that both calm and hydrate the skin to give you that all-important glow.
Bonus Tip: Claire says, “If you slip it back into the sleeve afterward, and pop it in the fridge, it’s also a great way to reduce redness and rehydrate your skin which makes it perfect if you overindulged in your favourite tipple! the Mask instantly reduces any puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles.” Hangover, what hangover?

The Mask by WOW facial isn’t just any sheet mask, it’s a WOW sheet mask. Unlike other masks, it comes in two halves; so that you can place the top and bottom half perfectly on your face, making it suitable for all face shapes and sizes. Additionally, eye covers are included to rehydrate and rejuvenate the most delicate area of your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness at the same time.

The fabulous WOW fusion Glow Peel is dubbed amongst practitioners the “one-minute party peel” for a reason; the high exfoliating properties correct early signs of aging and visibly improve dullness, rough texture, and uneven skin tone while promoting a revived complexion for the ultimate #WOWskin appearance. Thanks to the combination of powerful yet gentle Hydroxy-Acids this peel is actually perfectly suitable for sensitive skin too.

LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a non-invasive, speedy treatment that can absolutely transform the skin from within. The WOW LED light mask is available as a stand-alone treatment, however, its also the fourth stage of the full WOW facial, right after micro-needling and mesotherapy.

The Red LED light is used specifically to reduce inflammation, promote circulation and target wrecked reticular dermis to stimulate fibroblast. It also stimulates the production of collagen, increases natural hydration levels (a must after a night partying!), and accelerates the natural reparation process of the skin.
