The festive season is almost around the corner, but are you and your skin ready for it? If the answer is no, don’t stress – we’ll be sharing with you some of the treatments we’ve been trying for the last month so you can be glowing and beyond by the time Santa comes around.
At Christmas time, many of us tend to get more stressed than usual with heaps of family and friend gatherings. At this time of the year, the social agenda is getting fiery, which can ruin our best look when we need it the most. Because who doesn’t want to look flawless for their work Christmas party, meeting the in-laws, or rocking the dance floor with some friends? We get you – that’s why we have gathered our go-to places to be the best version of yourself and enjoy the season ahead on your best behaviour.
Sometimes we may not pay as much attention to our mouth and teeth. If you can relate to the previous statement, this is your wake-up call. Getting your pearly whites in check at least twice per year should be in your top priorities. It might be the fear of the dentist holding you back, but I can assure you that once you put a foot into the FY Smile clinic, these thoughts will be a thing of the past, as you’ll feel like you’re at the spa for the day. Why? They are one of Sydney’s leading holistic smile centres, hence, their special attention and beautiful decor.
Laser Clinics BBL Hero
Laser Clinics are renowned for their hair removal services and skin treatments. This time around, they are taking clients one step further into the beauty aesthetics world, offering a newly launched treatment: the BroadBand Light Therapy High Energy Rapid Output (BBL Hero), a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that can dramatically change your skin with just one session. Are you ready to meet your best skin ever? There’s a treatment for different skin needs, from calming down active acne to smoothing out pigmentation and fighting against ageing signs. And best of all, there’s no downtime, so you are still on time to book yours before the festivities kick in.
Bee Venom Facial by April Brodie
Were you looking for a quick but effective fix? Dubbed the ‘facelift in a jar’, the ground-breaking Bee Venom Facial is exclusively available from Australia’s trained and certified Bee Venom Facial expert, April Brodie. The treatment is a gold experience; April uses the Bee Venom Mask to get your skin glowing and wholly restored after the session. The main goal here is to relax your muscles and boost collagen through an indulging massage all over your face and body, feet included! If we have you convinced, know that she takes appointments both in Melbourne and Sydney, but we warn you, there might be a bit of a waiting list.
Collagen Lounge Treatment
It’s not just your skin that deserves a treat before the festive season –your entire body does, which is reason enough to head into the Collagen Lounge and discover a whole new level of beauty sleep as we know it. This luxe space offers your body the possibility to harness the power of red-light therapy through ergonomic beds. Each session works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scars, and even stretch marks over your body. The treatment goes for about 30 minutes, where you can switch off with a light meditation or relax with some music of preference.
Jocelyn Petroni Manicure
If you’re in the market for a manicure, your nails are in for a treat regardless, but where better to make an appointment than with one of Sydney’s best manicurists, Jocelyn Petroni, at her lovely salon in the Eastern Suburbs? They offer a wide variety of manicures at the salon for everyone, from their renowned Chanel manicure to the anti-ageing mani, suited for those more concerned over the signs of ageing. There’s even a waterless manicure, perfect for those with sensitive nails! Almost all treatments include a hand and arm massage to finish, using European, Shiatsu, and Reiki massage techniques.
RAW Hair by Anthony Nader
And for the final touch, why not try some pretty locks delivered by the master himself, Anthony Nader? We know that with so many social commitments on the agenda for the upcoming weeks, there’s no time to be checking into the hairdresser day after day, so here, you can get your hair done with a blowout that can last for a few days with their famous 10-minute scalp massage included.
