“Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.”
― Ellen DeGeneres
I’m one of those messy, lazy girls who run around all day for work. I end up too tired to take care of myself at the end of the day. My busy schedule does not allow me any time for self-pampering. The lack of care and tight schedule show on my skin and hair, unsurprisingly. So, I decided to finally take some time off, and headed straight to R4 Salon and Spa for a pampering session.
The place offers such a large number of services, and I am so out of touch with the world of personal grooming, that I felt confused about which treatments to go for. I just wanted my dull skin to glow again. So first they took me to a specialized skin testing room, equipped with skin analyser equipments to conduct skin consultation session.
As I started talking with the experts there, I was told that our skin is prone to becoming sensitive due to certain conditions, medical or otherwise, as well as excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors, such as the harsh rays of the sun, excessive heat, severe cold, etc. But the damage thus caused can be reversed with a proper skincare routine. So, what the R4 experts do is test the skin for a thorough analysis, and then they recommended the proper facial regime based on the skin type, i.e. oily, dry, combination (with an oily T-zone), and sensitive.
In my case, the analysis revealed that my skin is sensitive. So, they chose the Pineapple Marmalade facial, which is appropriate for sensitive and acne prone skin. It gently exfoliates the dead skin and makes it glow. It repairs the damages, fixes the oil-balance of skin – all with gentle effective treatment. But the superficial radiance is not all. This treatment also strengthens the skin barrier function, and restores hydration and suppleness. It even reduces redness and skin irritation.
Now, what more can a girl ask for? So it was a truly satisfying session. The staff was also really friendly and understanding, and I fell in love with the service.
And, I’m left with a pinkish glow on my soft, smooth skin!
Thank you R4 for this amazing session!
