For an ultimate wedding day glow, another tip is to combine your Oxygen facial course with a course of Chemical Peels. Here's the science bit... A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) is applied to the skin to lower the pH level, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, creating exfoliation and stimulating new skin cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen. make sure you look for low to medium grade chemical peels as they are known for excellent results with minimal downturn normally associated with deeper peels. In layman's terms that means you look amazing as soon as you leave the treatment room and hit the street... what's not to love about that!
Thirdly, if you're worried about the loss of skin firmness, we definitely recommend a course of CACI Lift treatments. This renowned electronic facelift provides a relaxing and painless non-surgical facelift treatment that tones the muscles and smooths away fine lines and wrinkles and actually re-educated the facial muscles along the way.
You also need to consider your own at home daily skincare regime, which at a basic level includes cleansing both morning and night and exfoliating up to three times a week to rejuvenate your skin and promote healthy skin cell turnover. Choose a gentle scrub to remove all dead skin cells and impurities from the skin. Apply an enzymatic peel or Gommage exfoliator to improve the skin texture and freshen up your appearance with a healthier glow.
Finally, when it comes to your makeup, fresh skin and a glowing complexion is still a firm favourite. This year natural glowing skin with a shimmer seems to be on top of everyone's list. Enhance your cheekbones with a subtle highlighter and pat a bronze shimmer eyeshadow all over the eyelid. If you prefer a matte eyeshadow add a smokey grey eyeshadow to your natural look to add a bit of sexiness. When it comes to lips this year is the year to embrace a pop colour, but if you never wear a red lipstick then your wedding day is not the day to start. Again like with skincare, seek professional advice on your makeup. A professional makeup artist will be able to tailor the right look based on your facial structure, wedding day colour themes and chosen dress, they can also incorporate the bridal party so your whole squad look their very best.

First up, dull skin can be a concern with winter throwing all it can at our complexions. So to counteract that it's a great idea to try a course of Pure Oxygen treatments. As oxygen is a natural healing element, when it's infused into the skin during these treatments it encourages healthy skin regeneration and also visibly reduces those pesky lines and wrinkles which might be creeping in. In the Lisa Franklin Pure Oxygen Facial, we use a powerful serum which is applied to the skin during the treatment and helps to protect your skin from environmental pollutants and provides a plumping effect leaving the texture of the skin feeling deliciously smoother.
