A visit at Face It Sara Beauty Journalist .
Donna explained in detail how the skin cells at different layers communicate with one another, and how her treatments impact the way that the skin regenerates. I was absolutely fascinated. I have a very low tolerance for pseudo-science when it comes to beauty treatments, adverts with some seemingly made-up-in-a-marketing-meeting jargon, new “technology” that never does what it promises. However, Donna’s explanation of how her treatments work was truly scientific. Face It is all about the science of the skin – “I really need to get to know my clients’ skin to tailor their treatments to their specific needs.”
Donna walked me through a consultation, first finding out what issues her clients have with their skin and then what their long-term goals are. “My job is to manage expectations with the time that we have,” said Donna. “
After our chat, I lay on Donna’s indescribably comfortable treatment table to try out one of these marvellous skin treatments myself. I had laid out what I considered to be my own skincare problems, dry patches and wide, clogged pores. Rather than reprimand me over my lack of diligence when it came to my skin, Donna was extremely gentle, both in the treatment and in her approach. It actually really helped me to open up about how my skin had suffered from harsh red frown lines since I had lost my dad, and was extremely therapeutic on an emotional level too. I realised just how much stress had impacted the last year of my life. For the first time in almost a year, I relaxed and cut myself some slack.
However, after five minutes under the spell of a heavenly face massage, I knew that I was going to be coming back as a client, rather than a journalist.
After the treatment, I immediately booked my next and decided I would document changes to my skin over six months. I was completely sold on and hooked by the treatments and products, and decided to give them their best shot at making long-term changes.
