If you thought you needed to be a hella famous to have skin worthy of the red carpet, think again. As part of their skincare routine, A-listers also get regular facials just like us normals – who knew we had so much in common?
But with so many out there, how do you know which ones are celeb-approved and which ones aren’t? Especially when you don’t have unlimited funds like they do to try them all (BRB just crying into our piggybank).
To save you time (and mostly money), here are our favourite facial treatments that Hollywood just can’t get enough of. And if they’re good enough for Hollywood, they’re certainly good enough for us.
You know that dewy glow Emma Stone always takes as a plus one to premieres? Well, she gives the credit to oxygen facials. Our Hollywood Air facial treatment is bursting with oxygen to instantly refresh your entire complexion ready for the paparazzi pics on your way home.
How Does Oxygen Benefit the Skin?
When infused into the skin, pure oxygen stimulates blood flow and brings essential nutrients to the surface of the skin, giving that fresh-faced look. It kills bacteria and unclogs pores with a deep cleanse, allowing your skin to breathe.
Who Will Benefit the Most From the Hollywood Air Facial Treatment?
If you spend more time catching flights than feelings or pride yourself on being a city gal, you’ll want to add regular Hollywood Air facials to your schedule, no matter how busy you are. Constant travel or time spent in the city will expose your skin to a lot of dirt, bacteria, and pollution that can be decongested with a high concentration of oxygen.
Acne-prone skin types can also really benefit from our Hollywood Air facial treatment as it kills the acne-causing bacteria that grows with a lack of oxygen.
Turns out Jennifer Anniston and Angelia Jolie have more in common than their taste in men and sharing an ex-hubby, as they’re also fans of the Spectra Hollywood Carbon Peel. It might not be your celeb crush Brad Pitt, but you’ll be crushing on yourself afterwards.
Who Is It For?
Bringing Hollywood to Notting hill, this facial treatment is the ultimate quick fix to revive and refresh the skin for big events and last-minute plans, or for when you just want to live like a celeb for a day.
Regular spectra laser peels can achieve long term results such as reducing acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does the Spectra Hollywood Carbon Peel Work?
Natural carbon cream is applied to the skin and left to dry. Once it’s dry, laser beams are aimed at the areas covered with carbon cream to encourage it to draw out impurities, dead skin cells, and excess sebum for a brighter complexion.
Long term results are achieved by heating the skin with the laser to stimulate collagen and elastin production, leading to smoother, younger-looking skin over time.
What Are the Side Effects of the Carbon Laser Facial?
You may experience a tingling sensation and slight redness after the spectra laser treatment, but there are absolutely no side effects so you can hit up the red carpet straight afterwards.
Kourtney Kardashian is the self-care Queen and a huge fan of LED face masks. If you follow her on Insta, you’re probably no stranger to seeing her futuristic selfies.
At Young LDN, we offer LED light facials with a machine that does the same as an LED face mask, but with more powerful results as the LEDs used are advanced, medical-grade LEDs that can’t be squeezed into a face mask.
What Do LEDs Do in a Facial?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. During a LED light treatment facial, they emit different wavelengths of light to stimulate the different skin cells required to treat certain skin concerns.
Blue LEDs are known for treating acne as they have antibacterial properties to cleanse the skin and eliminate bacteria. They also calm hyperactive sebaceous glands that produce excess oil and clog pores, which often leads to acne.
To kickstart the skin’s natural healing process, yellow LEDs minimise acne scars, sun damage, and rosacea and psoriasis flare-ups. Plus, it accelerates the lymphatic flow and drains toxins from underneath the skin, brightening the overall complexion.
Is LED Light Therapy Good for Your Face?
LEDs (unlike sunbeds) are perfectly safe for your face as they don’t contain UV rays, which means you can regularly enjoy the effects of a LED light therapy facial – Hollywood here we come!
How Long Is the Treatment For?
Our Skin Rejuvenation Yellow Light LED Facial is 20 minutes long, whereas our Acne Blue Light LED Facial is 30 minutes. For the Acne Improvement Programme, treatment length will depend on the intensity of your acne.
How Much Is a LED Facial?
The price of our LED light therapy facials begins at just £35 for a 20–30-minute treatment, and £250 for the Acne Improvement Programme over 8 weeks.
Gwyneth Paltrow swears by CBD-infused skincare, calling it “the hero ingredient of the future”, and with skin like hers, we think she knows what she’s talking about. And no, you won’t get high like another hemp-loving celeb we know, but you will want to drop it like it’s hot.
What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation of cannabidiol that’s extracted from the cannabis Sativa plant, otherwise known as hemp. It’s a completely different species of the cannabis plant that marijuana comes from and only contains around 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive that makes you ‘high’.
What to Expect From a CBD Facial?
Our CBD facial starts with a CBD infused coffee to relax your mind and body. CBD oil-infused facial products are then massaged into the skin to target dry, dull, or ageing skin.
More benefits of CBD oil for the skin include reducing redness and calming inflamed skin as one of the most potent antioxidants. Being rich in vitamins A, D, E, and omega 3, a CBD facial will also boost your skin’s health, just in case you needed another reason to treat yourself like a movie star.
