Into The Gloss · The Skin Consult Digital Directory
Let’s be real: massages are great, aromatherapy is nice, high-tech treatments feel special, but… while a good facial can jumpstart your skincare efforts, the truly impressive results are reserved for those who practice diligent home care. Skin takes about 27 days to totally regenerate, and if you treat yours right for all 27 of ‘em, there’s real potential to end the month with a totally different complexion.
That’s the why behind an aesthetician’s post-facial product recommendations—and maybe it’s the reason you got that facial in the first place. Having an expert assess your skin and put together a routine is the best part of a facial, in this writer’s opinion, and you don’t actually have to step foot into a spa to access it. All the best aestheticians have recently taken to the web, doling out skin wisdom from behind a computer screen. Want to know which of your products to toss? Finally deal with that hyperpigmentation? Clear up an intense breakout? Get your favourite celebrity’s glow? An aesthetician can help with all of that, and they’re waiting for your call.
Here’s what you’ll get from a digital skin consultation:
The Australian facialist beloved by Victoria Beckham and Cate Blanchett has studios in Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, LA, and now… your couch! Their $150 virtual consults include a 45-minute video call with a Senior Clinical Therapist, and you’ll hit all the bases: what you want, what you use, what you might need a little more of. After your call, you’ll receive a detailed guide to your new routine. The cool part? Completing a consultation means you’ll be eligible for the Melanie Grant Skin Health Dispensary Service, allowing you to purchase professional back-bar treatments for at-home use. A facialist will walk you through digitally, once the treatment is decided.
