As much as I don’t want to admit it……….. winter is still here, and with the cold months comes great responsibility to treat your hair with some added TLC. I get a lot of comments on hair, particularly how long it is, trust me when I say its all about choosing the right products for you. Washing your hair with the right kind of shampoos and conditioners can make a huge difference, not to mention a hair mask! You will be amazed at how much of a difference it can make. I always go a little OTT on mine and during the winter I go even more extreme, so I thought I would share with you my winter hair care tips.
I say I love a lot of things, I love my boyfriend, I love my family, I love my friends but I most of all I REALLY love food. Mexican food in particular. (It’s not Xmas without mom’s enchiladas!) Seafood is also really high up there too. So I thought I would share with you the easiest fish tacos ever 🙂 Just look at these bad boys, how could you not?!
Pardon my smugness but I feel I have become the home expert of skincare. I have London Real Skin at The London Skin and Hair clinic to thank for that. Now I am grabbing for my facial SPF like it’s my trusty squash bottle!
This week I will be getting my final Kleresca Skin Rejuvenation treatment and I have mixed feelings about it. Don’t worry I will be giving you a full rundown over on my youtube channel after but until you get that, I thought I would share with you an up close and personal view of what it looks and feels like – and of course what results I have seen so far.
For those of you new to the table, Kleresca Skin Rejuvenation is a fairly new treatment available here in the UK. It claims to induce collagen production, Reducing pore size, eliminating fine lines and reducing signs of scars. Its a great 9 minute, non-invasive treatment. I have written an introduction post to the treatment, I suggest you check it out here
Kleresca Skin Rejuvenation is inspired by photosynthesis. The technology works by stimulating your skin at the cellular level. Specific LED light waves interact with the patented photoconverter gel, resulting in the light being converted into dynamic, pulsing fluorescent energy that promotes the build-up of collagen.
As I mentioned earlier I am off to have my fourth treatment this week and I can already notice quite a remarkable difference in my skin. Most noticeably is my overall complexion, and my angry wrinkle is almost gone! I mean – hello! I didn’t even need botox!
So how does a treatment session work?
After your first assessment appointment, your treatment appoints usually start with some photographs of your skin. This is to document how your skin is reacting and progressing. (Honestly, I have already had a sneaky peak at my ‘before’ pics, and SPOILER ALERT My skin has improved SO much!)
1 . Vanessa from London Real Skin at The London Skin and Hair Clinic performs my treatments on me, and she starts by cleansing my skin. It’s very relaxing and doesn’t hurt one bit. It’s actually quite nice!
2. Then the treatment is prepped. It only takes a few minutes, where Vannesa blends the two jars below together. It’s a VERY thick orange gel that gets spread on your skin. The best part? It has no smell. Perfect for those sensitve to perfumed products!
3. Your eyes get covered in some protection lids so that your eyes are protected from the fluorescent lights. I really enjoy this, because if forces me to switch off and relax. I cant see my phone, I cant really do anything but just chill and I am ok with that!
4. The gel is then applied to your face. When it is applied the gel feels cool and soothing. Like a super hypercharge hydration facial you do at home on a Sunday even while catching up on last weeks Celebs go dating. Best part so far about this facial? Still no pain!
5. The fluorescent light is then turned on, and for 9 beautiful minutes, you get to switch off from the world and enjoy the sensation of having the sun on your face. At this point, I struggle to stay awake. The gel feels warm against my skin, in a nice way. Like somebody is giving my face a hug. I love this part. The gel, orange under the light slowly becomes more of a vibrant bright pink. Still no pain!
6. The gel is then scrapped off very gently, your face is cleansed and some SPF is applied. Voila! You are a done! Now you can slap on some makeup and continue on with your day! It’s as easy as that! The whole experience is extremely enjoyable and I kinda wish I was having more done.
I am super excited to see the result after my last treatment but the final result won’t be for another 12 weeks as your skin is still working on inducing those collagen levels! London Real Skin at The London Skin and Hair clinic suggest you have 4 treatments, but for more info please checkout their website here
This treatment is perfect for anybody who has never had a facial before, who has a low pain threshold and who doesn’t have time for any ‘downtime’. I would recommend Kleresca Skin rejuvenation treatment to people that are concerned about their pores, their complexion, their fine lines (GOODBYE ANGRY WRINKLE AND MASSIVE CRATE PORE!) and want to plump up their skin by inducing collagen. Its never too early to start taking care of your skin. You cant turn back time, but you can slow it down slightly and prevent damage. It is also PERFECT for those of you who struggle with acne. Either its severe acne (Klerescca Acne) or like me, the odd adult spot.

Happy Tuesday lovelies! Hope you all had a lovely weekend 🙂 I spent the weekend with the boyfriend, enjoying Richmond Park and eating some really good food. A perfect weekend in other words! Lots of things are happening on the blog right now, and my first step to my self-improvement before turning the BIG 30 has started. In case you missed it, last Thursday I was live on Facebook with London Real Skin at The London Skin and Hair Clinic to try out a relatively new UK skin treatment called Kleresca® Skin Rejuvenation. You can see a recap of it here, but I will also be posting a youtube video about it, so keep your eyes peeled! There is so much I want to share with you about this experience, so I am dividing it into steps. This post is an introduction to Kleresca® Skin Rejuvenation!
I feel so cheesy writing that title but its true. In exactly 1 month I turn 30. 3.0, the big 3OH and taking care of my skin has become my number 1 priority in terms of taking care of myself. Over the years I have been told some obscene skincare advice, some downright lies that would have done more harm than good had I listened to them.
We are finally here people – the first food post of 2018 and it’s a veggie one! Can you believe it?! I can! I really regret not posting this before, because it’s just so tasty but its also a perfect January recipe. Cheap, healthy and perfect for those of you doing veganuary! It really is the best ever chickpea wrap – middle eastern style!
Drape me in velvet and call it WEDNESDAY!! Yes, I am a back to starting my blog posts with reminding you of what day of the week it is. Why change something that works? This might come as a slight shock to you but I can’t wait for January to be over! I honestly can’t deal with all the sales temptations. I don’t really have an issue with dry January, or going vegan or attempting to give up sugar but the one thing I really struggle with is the sales. It’s PURE TORTURE!
If the start of a new year isn’t a good excuse for a new skincare routine, I don’t know what is! Although I will be honest here, I started using these way back in 2017 when my skin decided I needed to get reminded of what it was like to be a teenager again. It’s 2018 people! New year – New winter skincare routine!
