Why book a skin consult?

No two skins are ever the same. We say this time and time again, especially to those who want a “quick fix” for their skin concerns. How often have you spoken to a friend who has suggested a product or treatment that really worked for them, only to have you try the same and be left disappointed?

When every skin is unique, a skin consult allows us to get to know you, your unique concerns and the goals you have in mind for your skin. By sitting down…

No one Ever Told Me I’d Have Floppy Earlobes!

How come no one ever told us we’d get floppy earlobes when we got old?

We all expect the day to come when it’s no longer becoming or appropriate to wear a tight T shirt or skinny jeans. We know that our eyesight will gradually weaken making it almost impossible to apply eyeliner smoothly, or tweeze our eyebrows. We even expect to have the odd hair sprouting forth from our chins. These eventualities will come and we’ll…
