Most people confuse or misdiagnose their skin between dry and dehydration. Skin dehydration happens when the outermost layer of the skin starts to evaporate moisture, and insufficient internal hydration of epidermis. Dehydration can cause excessive excretion of sebum which caused redness and oily skin, also the dreaded wrinkles! Hydrating facials can do your skin some good.
Slimfeel Beauty SPA Wellness is located within the housing area, along the main road at Jalan Delima. It’s basically terrace house renovated to accommodate the entire beauty spa, thus rooms are roomy and really comfortable. When you walk in, you be greeted by a cheery Christmas tree, house slippers for your precious feet since you have to take off your shoes at the entrance and a lovely floral hanging chair.
I was led upstairs, to a room where they carry out facial treatments. The room is rather roomy, enough to accommodate to spa beds, their wheelie rack of skin care products and still leaving plenty of leeway to walk. I changed into the designated robe and hung my clothes on wooden hangers they have prepared.
The facial began with a deep cleansing gel which was really soothing. The beautician then cleanses my face and décolletage with another cleanser with a minty tingly feeling before applying cool peeling gel to my face. Before leaving the room to change the water for the sponge bath, she turned on the steamer, a tool that emits warm steam and pointed it to my face. Don’t worry, it doesn’t burn.
My face was massaged in circular motions with an exfoliating scrub and followed with another sponge bath. After the skin was clean, she sprayed my face with a generous amount of toner. Next came the most dreaded part of the facial, EXTRACTION! I’ve heard too many stories about how much this part hurts but it wasn’t as bad as I imagined. Sure, you’ll feel some pain and a lot of pressure, but it’s not some unbearable pain that would make you shriek! After the blackheads were removed from my T-zone, she applied some antiseptic to the area to rid the area of bacteria. This stung a little.
She then swept a hydrating mask over my skin and continued with a massage; with special tool they call crystal ball. She rolled the cool tool over my skin, it felt soooo good! Then, came another mask. This one was thicker and she swiped it all over my face and covered my eyes as well. I had to wait for it to dry, meanwhile she gave me a relaxing shoulder massage with essential oils. When the mask was finally dry, she just lifted the entire thing off my face, no pain at all! The final steps include a quick eyebrow shaping session and applying facial mist and moisturizer to keep my skin supple.
