THE SKIN GAME CHANGER — A TWELVE WEEK PROGRAMME
That fresh-from-a-facial glowing skin is all too transitory, what we want is radiant skin – permanently. It’s a tall order, but thankfully London-based facialist Teresa Tarmey has distilled her signature Microneedling Facial into an at-home program to do just that job. And the glowing skin of her clients – Brit beauties from Poppy and Cara Delevingne, to Kate Moss and Sienna Miller – is all the proof you need. So, if you can’t make it to her West London townhouse (she is also opening her first NYC Tribeca boutique later this year), this is the next best thing.
“This 12-week skin program is incredible for resurfacing and rejuvenating the skin in a gentle but efficient way, particularly if you have pigmentation, scarring, fine lines or sun damage. I recommend it to my clients 12 or 13 weeks before a big event,” says Tarmey. There are six steps that are easy to follow and simple to use with three potent skincare formulas: a lactic acid toner to gently exfoliate, brightening peptides and pure hyaluronic acid serum.
But what makes this kit so good is the tools included: a derma roller for micro-needling, a technique that helps products to penetrate further into the skin (Tarmey’s instructional rolling tips are included); a de-puffing, vibrating gold massage tool; and a reusable silicone mask, which is layered over the hyaluronic-acid gel to create an occlusive ‘sheet-mask’ effect, hydrating skin even more. It’s suitable for all skin types, but Tarmey suggests waiting for rosacea-prone skin or active acne to calm down before you use it. This program works, but you need to commit to doing the six steps weekly for 12 weeks. It’s a commitment but, trust us, it’s also a total skin transformer.
