BEAUTY| CHEMICAL PEEL WITH HARLEY STREET MD

I am a big believer in taking care of yourself, whether it be physically or mentally! As I am now in my late 20s, the desire to have a great skin regime is of the utmost importance to me! Now, I am not perfect when it comes to my face, and I can tighten up with my routine. ut I have been coasting with an ok complexion, however, I know this laziness will only lead me to looking not at my best, and I aim to continue to slay when I am 46.. honestly and truly. That being said, I was recently contacted by the guys of at Harley Street MD, about trying an aesthetic treatment. As I am all about my complexion, I decided to opt for the chemical peel. Now, I had heard of chemical peels before, but had to do some research and watched my girl, Tootsie time to get an overview of what I'd be in for.
It didn't seem too bad.

Chemical peels are great for skin rejuvenation, which I deeply needed! Basically, it involves the solution being introduced to the skin, removing the damaged skin and revealing new and fresh collagen-rich layer. Depending on the type of peel you go for, be it more intensive or less intensive, your downtime will differ. When I entered the surgery Dr Tan, was very helpful and friendly on explaining the types of peel I could go for. After our consultation, I opted for the Milk peel. Which was the less intensive option I could go for. The benefits were, it offered less downtime, so I would only have to be make up free for 12 hours, it offered no peeling. Caused less risk such as de-pigmentation and possible keloid scarring. The only downside is that it's mainly for rejuvenation, so if you are looking for something more intense and have more time for your skin to peel, this one is NOT for you. However, since my skin isn't "bad", I decided to play it safe.

In a nutshell the Milk peel leads to:
  • Restores a radiant complexion
  • Contributes to skin turnover
  • Improves the appearance of oily skin and dilated pores
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Evens skin tone
  • Boosts the action of daily cosmetics

So what exactly happened:
  • My skin was be cleansed
  • My hair was safely tied back, to avoid it being a distraction in the treatment
  • My nose, lips and delicate areas will be protected by vaseline
  • The solution was applied, and I experienced a tingling, mild burning sensation
  • A fan was introduced to reduce the discomfort, and I loved Dr Tan at that time, because it was slightly uncomfortable
  • A neutralisation solution when therapy finishes

So what do I think:
After the procedure, Dr Tan gave me some aftercare advice. He told me I should avoid alcohol and make up for at last 12 hours after the procedure. My skin was radiant after a day, but as the website recommends, you should have 3-5 treatments to see a massive difference. Tp be honest, my skin wasn't bad to begin with, so I would definitely try a slightly intenser peel to get rid of my acne scars. But I was happy with the results. One thing I will mention, I saw a bit of flaking around my nose about a week later. Overall, I am happy with the results, but I think I'd need to go back for a few more treatments to see a total difference of my complexion, and perhaps a slighter intensive treatment. What about you, would you ever try a chemical peel?

FASHION| THE PARTY SEASON IS HERE FEATURING BOOHOO #PARTYAFTERPARTY

If you know me and I mean know me well, you know I like to party. Listen, nothing sets my heart on fire than a good beat, a banging club and an impending dance battle! It is THAT serious. Now being a seasoned fashion blogger, I like to think that I have developed a strong eye for the best party looks. I mean I do go out quite a lot, and with it being the party season. I thought it was the perfect idea to showcase a little number I had received from the lovely team at Boohoo. You see, I had recently attended the Boohoo Christmas party (#partyafterparty) at the W Hotel in Leicester square. The party was filled with laughter, music and great activities such as Just Dance. Now, I didn't wear this little number from Boohoo, I decided to opt for the red dress.

Channelling my inner flapper girl, I brought my love of monochrome back with full force in this dress. Chic, sexy and fabulous are everything I feel when I slip on this little number. It is comfy too, which makes it a wise choice if you like to throw down on the dance floor.

GOLD SHOES FROM BOOHOO

Now like any otther gyal out there, I love my heels! But I must be comfy in them. I was tired of the standard stilettos, the strappy numbers which leave those unsightly indents on your feel that make you curse the day you added those shoes to the basket. Yep, dem one there... so I thought a lovely spin to the classic party shoe was these golden gems here. Comfy, unusual and oh so fierce, I am super happy with how the outfit was pulled together with this. These shoes added the perfect Christmas touch.
