Before being chosen as a finalist in the Beauty and Beyond Extreme Makeover, if you were to ask me: "What is your daily beauty regime”, my answer would be something like: "Oh please! If I cleanse tone and moisturise once a day I feel triumphant".
Monthly visits to various stores, pharmacies and supermarkets, and faced with a plethora of serums, creams and concoctions that promise unique anti-aging, smoothing, soothing, youthful properties, how was I to distinguish hype from truth? Which of these products would give me the results I seek?
Under the guidance of my skin care therapist Ilenie, my face was introduced to a series of six Gly C treatments backed up with a daily home care regime. While my vocabulary was injected with new words such as Microdermerbrasion, exfoliation, peptides and Glycolic Acid, so too was my skin being re-educated to feel fantastic and pampered to perfection.
All of this teamed up with a 'Wow factor' hair style by style queen Terry. I feel wonderful. The comments about my hair and how much younger I look, well what can I say other than 'Bring it on!' And besides, my hair looks chic and shiny; it feels smooth and I love it.
I was never one to show my hands and nails because I believed them to be ugly. That is until Nicky did her magic with a gorgeous French Biosculpture – and wow! What a difference.
I now feel confident that I have a skin care regime that suits my skin type and provides excellent results. I have a hairstyle I love and can manage daily with ease. My hands and nails are no longer hidden.
I have experienced a journey of discovery and transformation, an adjustment in lifestyle and I look forward to a future with Beauty and Beyond and Bodyvibes in it.
'Ma te huruhuru te manu, ka rere … with wings a bird will fly ...'
Thank you so much
