A hydrafacial is suitable for those who suffer from breakouts or those who have lackluster complexion and would like a refresh.

This facial is a top-class exfoliating experience that consists of a high-speed water-jet pen that gently jets thoroughly cleanses your face – unclogging pores and removing any debris that it comes into contact with it.

During this non-invasive process, this treatment will help hydrate your skin at the same time and give you that extra boost, needed especially during winter.

Almonds are rich in bioactive compounds that restore the moisture balance in your skin.

Combining both milk and almond helps reduce the dryness of your skin and make it more supple. All you need is 1-2 tablespoons of almond powder and 2-3 tablespoons of fresh milk.


Mix the almond powder and milk until its a thick paste consistency

Apply it on the areas with dry skin and leave it on for 10 minutes

Wash off with lukewarm water.

Finding a good moisturising finish after any facial can be tricky as everyone has different types of skin.

However, in the winter you want to lock in the most moisture to avoid any dryness and itchiness.

For example, Glycerin oil is a potent humectant that effectively restores the moisture content of your skin. Petroleum jelly has also been used as a moisturising agent due to its excellent moisture-retaining properties. It prevents the loss of moisture from the skin surface better than most other natural moisturising agents. Last but not least, coconut oil works as an excellent moisturiser and prevents the loss of moisture from the surface of your skin.
