Getting my skin beautiful with Jasmina Vico

After getting my hair treated, I decided it was time to take care of my skin. 
Believe it or not, it is the second time in my whole life I have a facial, I am very low maintenance but sometimes you just need to start somewhere, and what better start than getting your skin treated by top London facialist Jasmina Vico

I book an appointment with Jasmina at Hari's on Brompton Road, when I arrived I had to answer a few questions for her to understand what I need as the treatments she offers are, of course, bespoke. 

After telling her the story of my skin, that I had loads of acne younger, I was a big smoker ( quit 2 weeks ago, congrats to me!), love dairy and everything greasy or sugary, and also take very long hot showers that apparently aren't good for your face ... she decided on a treatment adapted to my skin.

My skin has a lot of redness and is quiet uneven and have this grainy effect on my forehead, I am sure you know what I am talking about. 

So Jasmina, started with a simple cleanse with salicylic acid followed by a peel both from Skineuticals, it tingle a bit but felt like my skin was already smoother! 

Then she applied the Medik8 Blemish Gel after extracting spots and blackheads, I really enjoyed that part as I am always scared to extract spots myself, so I finally know how to do it the proper way! To finish the first part Jasmina added a pore minimising mask Skinceuticals that she left for a good 15 min.

The first part was the easy peasy one, I said earlier that my skin has this kind of red stains which actually are broken capillaries, had a few under my nose and also a cluster of broken veins called spider nevis on the left part of my nose.

Jasmina used the Fotona laser to get rid of those red veins, I have to say one thing it hurts quiet a lot but it does not last long and they almost disappeared in the minute! 
While she treated the veins with laser she also applied a mask on the forehead to reduce breakouts and bacteria.

To end this facial treatment, Jasmina pass LED light on my skin, she started with the blue one to reduce acne and congested skin and finish with the red light to calm and heal the skin as well as collagen remodelling.

My skin is smoother, plumper and brighter, the day after I was still a bit red but just applied some Mac concealer on top and nothing else!

Jasmina also advise me to use the Fix me! Reparing serum by Yours Truly Organic before my daily moisturising cream, it regulates the production of sebum and repair sensitive skin like mine.

If you want to have a facial with Jasmina you will need to first have a consultation as all treatments are besposkes. She treats Acne, Rosacea, Eczema, acne scaring, pigment and anti ageing.
