Last week we had the immense honour of being flown to Sydney for the AST Skin Master Awards. Skin Divinity Cosmetic Clinic had been nominated in three categories – Skin Transformation, Business Growth and Social Media Masters. We spent the morning in the clinic in Byron with our clients before dashing up the Gold Coast and jumping on a plane to Sydney.
Our skin. Oh, our skin. It was feeling super dry. Since all we wanted to do was hang out with each other before the Awards Gala – we decided to stay in the hotel room, drink champagne (admittedly not amazing for hydration) and get our skin glowing and hydrated.
1. First step was to use Glow Mask from Cosmedix. It gives an instantaneous brightening and glow factor to the skin. By exfoliating away dead surface cells it helps improve the appearance of discolouration and uneven skin tone. The gentle exfoliation allows for optimal absorption of brightening ingredients, which help improve skin texture and tone to reveal a smoother, brighter and more luminous-looking complexion. Plus it makes skin so soft!
2. Next up – the much loved Peptide Mask from Societe. Extremely hydrating and perfect for both post (or during, if you’re game) flight and pre event. In fact, we love the Societe Rejuvenating Peptide Mask so much, we recommend them for anytime the skin needs an instant hydration boost. Containing ingredients that are activated by skin temperature, Societe Rejuvenating Peptide Masks rapidly minimise dehydrated skin and improves self-moisturising ability for a long-lasting dewy complexion.
3. Lastly we applied the super quenching Phytostat from Aspect. With it’s soufflé like texture and ability to adjust to your skin’s needs we can’t go past it. Packed full of nutrients it restores your skin’s vital moisture reserves, plumps the skin to aid in reducing signs of ageing and pumps the skin full of antioxidants.
We mix it up sometimes but this 3 step product process is pretty hard to beat! With airplanes and hotel rooms there is so much dryness to counteract so hydrating products are essential! We also needed products with the right consistency to apply mineral makeup on top of – we use Osmosis Colour.
As happy as we were with our skin … something even better happened that night as we won not ONE but TWO awards for the clinic! We took out the Best Clinical Skin Transformation (for healing acne using only peels and active home care) and Best Overall Advanced Skin Transformation (for transforming skin in both product and peels only AND with other nominees who had used machinery). The glow reached new heights.
(Of course, we cleansed, put on our serums (crucial) and moisturised again before we went to bed).
