Hello everyone, i’m currently on vacation in the US and 10 days just zoomed past like that!! 😦 Will be heading back to Singapore in a few days time and i must say that i really miss the food back there. I have been consuming so much fried food, burgers, sandwiches and salad that i’m getting sick with it. Since i have some time to spare (my husband is off for his conference) so i will do a quick skin update.
P.S: I hope i have some time to do a blog post on my US trip as this is our first self-drive trip and i’m so excited to share some must go / see places in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Arizona and Orlando!
Alright! As you know, i’m going to Annabelle Skin for regular facial every 3-4 weeks interval. Annabelle Skin aims to serve as the trusted skin and body care companion to its clients as they go through different stages in life by providing quality treatments, effective results and personalized service. Annabelle Skin strongly believes that everyone’s skin condition is unique. Each skin and body treatment will be customized accordingly with the combination of skillful manual methods with advanced scientific beauty technology, using high quality products made with natural ingredients from Europe to produce the best and most effective results. Annabelle Skin is currently using an internationally acclaimed natural and organic skincare brand from the Europe. The award-winning German brand – DR. BELTER COSMETIC embraces a philosophy of using raw and natural ingredients combined with technology to formulate perfection for the skin. I’m currently using some skincare products from Dr Belter to maintain the condition of my skin (in between facial) and you can refer to this blog post if you want to know how it fares
Before the start of every session, Mandy will always access the current condition.As mentioned, Mandy will be focusing more on repairing and nourishment for my subsequent treatments. The facial treatment started off with cleansing. As i did not have any makeup on, Mandy went straight into normal skin cleansing with the use of Sensi-Bel Delicate Cleanser followed by Sensi-Bel Delicate Tonic to remove remaining residues. Next step is to exfoliate to get rid of impurities and dead skin cell before applying a thin layer of mask. After which, it was left under cold steam for 15 mins to calm and hydrate my skin further.
After cleansing the mask off, it is time for extraction! Over at Annabelle Skin, they do not promote squeezing to decongest pores. Extraction is done using a special extraction tool from Switzerland together with special technique to remove blackheads & clogged sebum. As a result, it is not as painful and red as compared to conventional extraction. However, i felt that extraction seems more painful 1 week before or after my period so you can time your facial in accordance to your body’s reaction.
After extraction, Mandy sterilized my skin with a high frequency machine to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface.. During the process, i experienced a mild ting-ing p sensation. After which, she applied Intensa Ampoules No.9 on my skin. This ampoule is good in treating and nourishing damaged capillaries and oily skin with large pores benefit plant tannin extract. At the last part of the treatment, Mandy applied a nourishment mask on my skin.. While the mask is left on my skin, Mandy used a handheld machine (with ‘heated’ setting) to ‘drive’ the nutrients for better penetration deep into my skin. After 10 mins, she changed to ‘Cold’ setting so as to seal the nutrients and close my pores so that my skin can reap full benefits from the ampoule and mask.
Like the past facials, my skin will be healthier, brighter, smoother and more supple immediately . Gone were the days whereby my skin will be tight, itchy and filled with plenty of small pimples with pus. Below are some photos taken for the past few days. Despite the dry and cold weather in US, my skin did not turn cranky and red.. This is a vast difference as i would always tend to end up with breakouts and irritated skin in the past (in cold climate). Another few differences would be reduced oil secretion, smaller pores size and calmer skin! It has been a long time since i have last touched my concealer (which is something i cannot leave without in the past!)
If you cannot remember the state of my skin before embarking this skincare journey with Annabelle, here are the comparison photos. 🙂
