Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that’s what they always say right? However, with the constant pressure of the times. The expectations for us women are very high, people expect us to maintain a good career for us to carry our own weight and not be dependent on anybody for our daily needs or luxuries. They also expect us to be good daughters to our parents, to have a good education, to be a loving Mom to our kids and to be a good spouse and yet to top it all -off society expects us to look good on the outside and feel good on the inside.
The past few weeks have passed by like a blur of events as I have been running around like a headless chicken trying to complete tasks at work and in my personal life here and there. Good thing, last Monday was a holiday in the city of Pasig so all the Corporations located in Pasig had no work on that day.
I wanted to feel great on the inside and look good on the outside so I headed off to this clinic recommended by my friend Ms. Marcie in Makati.
Upon getting to the clinic, I was amicably greeted by their receptionist who had already booked me for an appointment that afternoon. They made me fill out a Patient Information Sheet regarding my Medical History and the products that I use on my face.
To be honest, I am a very low maintenance person when it comes to skincare as I do not practice the tedious process of applying toner and some age-defying serums on my face before I sleep. I sometimes even forget to remove my makeup and fall directly to sleep when I am dead tired from work. (True story right there).
Anyway, after checking my skin and evaluating the treatment which I should be undergoing they recommended a facial for me to treat my acne and clear my skin of its other impurities.
The nurse who assisted me was very helpful and patiently explained everything to me in detail. I must say, Good Customer Service surely goes a long way in developing the Customer Loyalty of your clients. 🙂
They asked me to lie down on the bed as they prepared me for my facial. It has been around 3 years since I last had my facial treatment as I am not really big on those things but due to me breaking out these past few days, I decided that I really did need some help to get rid of my acne problem.
After the cleansing, they then tried to steam me for a few minutes so that the pores of my skin would open up and it would be easier for them to do the extraction of my whiteheads/blackheads.
The nose area for me was the hardest part as it was the most painful part for me during the extraction process. I got teary eyed after the pricking but as the old saying goes.. No Pain, No Gain so I decided to push on with the treatment.
After the pricking was done, they applied some exfoliation cream onto my skin to extricate my blackheads easier which was quite stinging in nature. Good thing, she had a mechanical fan to soothe the burning sensation I was feeling. She eventually rinsed it off my skin and started with the fun part.. The Diamond Peel 🙂
I loved how the Diamond Peel felt on my skin as the suction was a relaxing feeling for me since I felt that it actually suctioned off the remaining blackheads in my skin. 🙂 She then capped off the facial session by appling a soothing cream onto my face and closing my pores with a laser equipment 🙂
Since I was quite bothered of how I seem to always look tired these days, I also decided to get myself a dose of their IV Glutathione Push which is actually good for the liver. I am naturally fair skinned to begin with, I credit it to my Father’s Chinese lineage as I was blessed to have a nice complexion 🙂
For me, what Glutathione does is to just give me that additional immunity to sickness and it adds that noticeable glow/ aura even though you lack sleep or you’re always tired. Upon waking up after having my glutathione push treatment I seem to feel more relaxed and I look refreshed even though I only had 3 hours of sleep the previous day. 🙂
Beauty is definitely in the eyes of the beholder but there is no harm in taking extra care of ourselves to make us look younger and feel good on the inside right? 🙂 I am definitely coming back for my next session here.:)
