Getting My Skin Sorted with Urban Skin & Beauty

On Friday I went and visited Nicole at Urban Skin & Beauty in the Junction. I was so excited to get a proper skin consultation as I've been having trouble lately with hormonal acne underneath my chin and jawbone. I also have a bit of a cold right now, so around my nose is red and peeling, a lot of the rest of my skin is very dry as well as it's Winter here and the weather has been gross.

Here's what treatments we covered today.
Nicole did a Specialised Skin Treatment on my face and all of the products that were used were by Alpha H.

The first cleanse that was done using a balancing cleanser, made up of aloe vera and vitamin e. This was a cream based cleanser.

The second cleanser that was done was a triple action cleanser that is specifically for skin with acne. This cleanser was made up of Thyme & Cucumber.

Then Nicole did a Pro X Gel Peel. Which is a peeling treatment that combines 30% glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid and botanicals. It's a skin resurfacing treatment which dissolves dead skin cells, stimulates collagen and cell repair. This felt super tingly but not in a bad way. Nicole applied some vaseline around my nose to protect it before the peel, as it was already super red and raw from blowing my nose all week!

It was overall a pretty gentle peel and a good introduction to face peels, with basically no downtime.


We moved on next to LED Light Therapy. See the mask in the image above!

Today we did the 3 mode setting which alternated between a few different lights.
Red which stimulates collagen production
Blue which kills bacteria and helps with the healing of acne
Infrared which helps to speed up the overall healing process of the skin

Afterwards a hydrating comfort mask was applied underneath the Azulene Rubber Mask which is calming and soothing for the skin. Nicole chose this mask as it's perfect to calm the skin after a peeling treatment. It felt kind of funny because it was so thick but really soothing on my skin!

To finish up the facial Nicole applied a 
Vitamin E Serum which is super healing, and amazing for acne
Vitamin B Serum this has niacinamide which strengthens the skin, helps to even skintone and hydrate the skin
SPF 50+ so that I was prepped for the rest of the day. 

It was such a relaxing and fun treatment, I can't wait to go back next month and continue my skincare regime with Nicole. 

You can book any and all of your treatments at Urban Skin & Beauty online now which I think is pretty much a requisite for any new place that I want to start going to. It can be stressful to call up and organise an appointment especially as you can't see the availabilities that they have, and to be honest I often decide I want to book myself in to things when businesses are closed! Like 10pm I want to make an appointment for next week. So good I can just pop on the website.
