#knowmyskin with the new Hydraderm Cellular Energy treatment from Guinot

May 14, 2016


For such a long time, I honestly thought my skin was very dry, thus I was pouring gallons of oils and rich potions on my face, and was permanently scrubbing away those flaky patches around my mouth and nose. I did more damage than good, because I had no one telling me what my skin type was. I ended up with oily skin, and more dryness on the same spots I was trying to cure. Going into blogging has taught me a thing or two about beauty, and thank God for Youtube, magazines and tutorials, giving me all the information I needed on treating your skin right. I was lucky, but a survey of 1,000 women in the UK commissioned by Guinot at the end of 2015 found that over 1 in 3 women don’t know what their skin type is. Your skin is as unique as you are, so the French beauty Institute has just launched their #KnowMySkin campaign to encourage the general public to book in for a free skin care consultation with a Guinot professional therapist. This way you can discover treatments and products to suit your skin type, lifestyle and beauty objectives. Guinot-banner-serenity-birmingham2

I’ve been a fan of Guinot ever since I tried one of my friends’ micellar water, more than 10 years ago. It felt so velvety and caressing my skin, I was sold! Over time, I came to try out many treatments and beauty products, but I keep coming back to Guinot. The research and devotion for the science behind a good skin is present in every product they launch, and a month ago I got to try the new Hydraderm Cellular Energy Treatment at Met Hotel, London. My appointment with a Guinot expert helped me understand my skin type and needs, with a tailored treatment using the Hydraderm machine. Offering the ultimate alternative to Aesthetic Medine, Hydraderm Cellular energy reduces the effects of time on the skin. The skin’s cells are reawakened by Dynamic Ionisation  combined with Thermal Energy, the oxygen level within skin is increased, cellular generation is accelerated and toxins are eliminated. The complexion instantly appears more youthful, brighter and radiant.

The entire treatment is customized to your skin type, boosting the skin’s cellular energy for an instantly rejuvenated, youthful complexion. I must confess, I am not felling confident at all with my makeup off, but after I came out of the treatment room, looking all glowing and radiant, I felt beautiful barefaced! My skin was so plumped, hydrated, and smooth. After the treatment I got to sit down with the therapist that did my facial, and she recommended some products from the Guinot range which will work for my type of skin. How comforting to know I feed my skin with everything it needs, for that natural, fresh and healthy looking skin. GuinotThese are the products I am using from Guinot, and I know it might look a lot, but trust me, if you were to count the entire cosmetics in your cabinet, the average woman has over 100. I won’t tell you how many I have, there might be some heists planned, but I am definitely in love with this range. The miracle worker, as I call it, is the Longue Vie Cellulaire, recreating young skin by providing the 56 substances vital to cell life, which are necessary for the renewal and the longevity of cells. I use this cream day and night and it revitalises my skin and renews the cells for a youthful, radiant complexion. Before going to an event I always pop on the Anti-Fatique mask and Instant Eye Mask  for the ultimate glow, moisture and radiance.  Guinot is also renowned for their cleansing gels and foam for in-depth purification of the epidermis and microbial action. No wonder Guinot is on anyone’s mind when they talk about French quality in skincare!

I encourage you to get to know your skin and book a free consultation with Guinot at one of their over 1200 salons, spas and health clubs in UK. Your skin will thank you later! Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with this new video from Guinot, a reminder that all women are beautiful, despite what they think of themselves.
