I never understood the importance of skin care until I finally got a professional facial. Of course, I used drugstore face products that promoted “skin clearing” or “acne fighting”, but I know now that those cheap products just dry out your skin. My skin care routine wasn’t complete and there’s so much more to just washing your face every morning and night.
My skin is a combination of oily and dry, sometimes it has a mind of its own. Lately, I’ve been having monthly breakouts. Not just small blemishes here and there, but one big one that takes forever to heal. I hate to say it, but I’m a picker so my pimples leave an annoying dark spot when they finally go away. I was always hunting for a simple solution for my skin problems and I think I finally found it.
I’m so happy I found Polished Skin by Priscilla! She’s located inside Sola Salon Studios in Cypress. There’s plenty of parking in the plaza, so her studio is easily accessible. Her cozy studio has modern décor and she also offers a beverage when you first walk in. She is so easy to talk to, very friendly and she understands what treatment you need depending on your skin type. She asked about my current skincare routine and then suggested what I can do better.
For my treatment, I got a pumpkin facial, which was perfect for the season! First, she cleansed my face to remove any makeup and oil (I suggest going without makeup on) and then wrapped my face in a warm towel. Next, she turned on some steam to open up my pores. Next, we did microdermabrasion. This method removed the superficial layer of dead skin on my face, which promotes the growth of new skin cells. I felt no pain during this process. Now that my skin was prepped and clean, it was time for extractions. She used two wooden sticks to remove any black and whiteheads. Next was the pumpkin mask! This smelled so good, it actually made me crave some dessert. After that, she gave me a nice face and head massage which put me in this amazing state of relaxation. Finally, she finished the treatment with a Vitamin C serum, SPF Moisturizer, and some lip balm.
Right after my treatment, my skin was literally glowing and it felt baby smooth. I couldn’t stop touching my face! Priscilla gave me a post-treatment kit which included products from Image Skincare. The trial size pack included cleanser, vitamin c serum, stem cell moisturizer, lightening cream, and a matte sunscreen. I’ve been using it for a week now, right when I wake up and before I go to bed. There is definitely a noticeable difference in my skin! My face has never been this clear and I think a monthly facial will solve all my skincare problems.
See you again soon Priscilla!
