OSLO’s Ultimate Guide for Glowing Skin

glow2jpg

Something we all have in common is the desire for perfect, flawless skin. It’s not that we need to be more sallow or porcelain-skinned, or even do away with our signature Irish freckles, it’s the seemingly elusive ‘glow’, that comes from a balanced diet, less stress and a sunny disposition; three things that in today’s modern world, are hard to achieve at all times. What is far more doable, however, is good skincare, and if there’s one surefire way to get that celebrity glow, it’s by investing in high quality treatments. At OSLO, we offer a carefully curated selection of facials, sure to cater to the full spectrum of skin concerns. Here, we focus on three particular treatments that guarantee the glow. Sit back, relax, and leave the quest for glowing skin to the professionals.

1. Alpha H Liquid Gold

This is one of our best-selling, signature treatments that targets signs of ageing, sun damage and fatigue, using Alpha-H’s world-renowned “Liquid Gold” formula. Whilst a cocktail of natural fruit acids, fruit enzymes and vitamins exfoliate and renew your complexion, an intensive “Cryogenic firming peel-off mask” formulated with spirulina extract, seaweed and menthol adds an intense lifting effect and pushes active ingredients deep into the skin to supercharge results. 55 minutes, €80.

2. Carita Genesis of Youth Facial

Nothing is more synonymous with glowing skin than a youthful appearance and this facial promises bring life, vitality, firmness and definition back to your skin. This is a deeply relaxing treatment to re-energise, lift and tone. First, the skin is softened and the complexion is clarified with a Rénovateur exfoliation and Ultrasound Refiner. Youth boosting extracts of veronia and yarrow then plump the papillary dermis and reinforce the skin structure. Facial contours are sculpted during a Micro-current massage using Cinetic Lift Gloves while hyaluronic eye patches provide intense hydration to smooth over fine lines. To finish, Red LED Technology stimulates collagen-producing cells from deep within the dermis. In just 85 minutes, skin is energised and oxygenated, immediately appearing firmer, more radiant and glistening with youth. €125

3. Image Anti-oxidant Anti Ageing Facial

New to OSLO, we’re incredibly excited to now feature the incredible Image skincare range as part of our offering. The facial that does it all, this 55 minute treatment replenishes what your lifestyle diminishes; even the most experienced ‘facial enthusiast’ will be impressed! This cleansing and invigorating vitamin-infused treatment will deliver tightening, lightening, brightening and nourishing hydration to leave you feeling fully refreshed and renewed.

Pre-facial
As for what measures you can take at home to get you closer to glowing skin? Pre-facial, there’s nothing you need to do; we do all of the work! Clients have the option of prepping by visiting Roisin, our skin specialist, for a complimentary skin consultation to guide you to the best treatment for you.

Post-facial
Post-facial, your aftercare will vary for each treatment, so it’s important to follow the guidelines given to you by your specialist after your treatment.

Drink up
Meet your facialist half way, by ensuring you consume two to three litres of water per day. It’s a very simple step that has tenfold benefits for both your skin and your overall wellbeing.

You’ll get there
Caroline Doyle, manager at OSLO, explains that good, glowing skin isn’t just something you’re born with; you can take measures to keep your skin in the best possible condition.

“As people we like routine and consistency and so does your skin! Nourishing your skin from the inside out is so important; water, a healthy, balanced diet, regular skin treatments and good homecare is essential. Your skincare specialist will be able to advise you on what would suit you best at home, depending on your own particular skin concerns.

One particular client of ours has the most incredible skin and she always gets compliments for it. But, she says, “I know I have great skin – I work really hard to make sure that I do!” It’s simple and true; great skin takes a little hard work. But when you invest in your skin the rewards really make the time and effort worthwhile. But with OSLO products, our cosmeceutical brands - IMAGE and Alpha H - are active, results-driven products that work at a much deeper level with the skin, so you will have the luxury of going home with noticeable results.
