My battle against acne has been a long, depressing and tedious process (Until the encounter with Annabelle Skin). However, the aesthetic treatments and medications that i had subjected myself to brought about side effects. One major side effect that plagued me since is skin sensitivity which resulted in red and patchy skin that heats up easily! Moreover, sensitive skin will result in skin’s resilient to decrease which brings about other skin issues like increased sebum secretion (which means more breakouts!)
Recently, i was stressed and worried about my surgery which resulted in skin turning extremely sensitive!! Once again, i turned to Annabelle Skin to address my skin woe! A hidden gem in the Adelphi – 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. During the past 2 facial treatments session, Mandy focused on treating my skin sensitivity with customized treatments which improved my skin’s condition greatly!
For the last 2 facial treatments, it focus on treating my skin sensitivity so customized products and treatments are used. Mandy started off with skin cleansing with the Sensi-Bel range with the use of Sensi-Bel Delicate Cleanser followed by Sensi-Bel Delicate Tonic to remove remaining residues.
For people with sensitive skin (like me!), Sensi-bel will never ‘comprise’ your skin. Hypersensitive skin that is prone to allergic reactions and eczema requires special care and attention in the method of treatment. The sensi-bel range ensures particularly gentle, meaningful skin therapy for challenging skin types. It focus on regenerating and fortifying the skin’s protective barriers, reducing skin disorder and supporting its balancing processes.
Sensi-bel Delicate: A special care line for long-term or temporarily hypersensitive skin. All products are dermatologically tested, free of colourants, perfume and official preservatives. It also contains Derma Lipid-Membrane Structure (DLS) components, a top grade skin-identical cream base without emulsifiers that does not cause skin irritation and ensures penetration of active ingredients for healthier skin.
Next step is to exfoliate to get rid of impurities and dead skin cell with Dr.Belter Intensa Soft Peeling 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. Did i mention that the Dr.Belter Intensa Soft Peeling is the only exfoliating gel that’s suitable to be used on my skin? Love it so much that i have purchased a tube to use in between facial treatments at the comfort of my home.
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. After extraction, Mandy sterilized my skin with a high frequency machine to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface..
After extraction and sterilizing my skin, Mandy applied ampoule on my skin. During the past 2 treatments, Anti-Stress / Irritation Ampoule are being used on my skin. Normally ampoule will always sting my skin but the Dr. Belter’s ampoule doesn’t. After applying both masks, my skin felt ‘cooling’ instantly and i love this soothing and refreshing sensation!
While waiting for ampoule to be fully absorbed, Mandy proceeded with Intensive treatment with Photolight 660 (which happened to be my favorite step!). Originating from Biogenie France, the development of Photolight 660 is based on several years of research in cosmetology on the optimal treatment of skins after damages due to the sun and to ageing. It is a non-invasive and athermic technique which uses a very specific light wave’s length of 660 nanometres that stimulates the production of collagen on fibroblasts. Photolight 660 was used on my skin to help improve the skin tone evenness, diminishes red blotches and to aid with skin healing. To finish off the entire treatment, masks (to treat skin sensitive and to improve hydration) are used.
Due to high amount of stress, it has somehow caused my body to go haywire and it also led to my lymph system becoming sluggish. As such, my body cannot keep up with detoxification of excess metabolic waste and toxins. This congestion has led to my body eliminating the excess through your skin and congestion occurs as a result when my skin cannot keep up with the load. Suffered from acne breakouts near my right ears which refused to go away despite how much pimple cream i spammed. After 2 treatments from Annabelle Skin, those annoying persistent acne went away with the wind! I believed that the treatments help improve lymph drainage and also helps strengthen skin’s resilient. With the treatments, it brought about improvements such as reduced skin sensitivity, less redness and improved skin clarity.
Shirley (Owner of Annabelle Skin) has also told me to use the Sensi-bel Couperosis Serum twice a day (daily) to maintain healthy skin. Previously, i was only using it whenever my skin felt tight and sensitive so i did not see much results. The Couperosis Serum is a soothing phyto-concentrate which inhibits the rosacea development, calming, anti-irritant and strengthens the vessel function. It contains hyaluronic acid spheres to deeply moisturizing, phyto-complex to fortifies capillaries and phyto-stemcells for UV-protection. There’s also antarcticine to protects from environmental influences and cold and vitamin A to supports skin regeneration.
After using it on a regular basis, i started to see results and i observed that my skin looks so much calmer and less warm to the touch! The picture above as taken straight after face cleansing and also the application of the serum. There’s not much redness observed and i’m very pleased with this serum. Texture is also very light and it gets absorbed instantly without a trace. Will certainly repurchase this again.
