How to choose the perfect Clarins facial for you

Fashion magazines can say what they like but there is no thigh gap, thick brows or 6-pack that can compete with beautiful glowing skin.

In terms of beauty it's skin, skin, skin!

Even if your bathroom is already filled with a plethora of peels, masks and scrubs, that doesn't mean you should skip seeking professional help. &Every so often, you should treat your skin to a facial as your complexion will really benefit from the attention of a trained therapist using the correct products for your skin type. Plus it's far more relaxing than a DIY effort!

We are delighted to offer Clarins at Lifehouse, including their range of luxurious treatments, such as the 5 different Tri Active facials to name but a few. Clarins Tri Active Facials are the ultimate high-performing, results-driven facials that include a face, neck, decollete, hand, foot & scalp massage using an assortment of CLARINSPRO formulas, tailored to suit your skin type. No two Clarins TriActive Facials will be exactly the same and the idea is that each facial is completely customised to suit each individual's concerns and problem areas.

Five different Clarins Facials may sound a little overwhelming! How do you know which one to pick? To give you a helping hand, we've written this blog to explain a little bit about each facial and what makes Clarins Tri Active so special.

The elements behind each facial

The consultation is the first and possibly the most critical stage of the facial. With the client sitting upright, the therapist can really see her client's skin and using touch, can check skin texture, puffiness, circulation, dehydration, and firmness. With this knowledge and an understanding of her client's own concerns, the therapist will choose three CLARINSPRO supplements and a mask to use during the treatment.

There are three distinct actions in each facial.

  • The first stage prepares the skin with a combination of cleansing, double exfoliation and detoxifying lymphatic drainage massage. You'll also receive a relaxation ritual and foot massage using essential oils to send you into a deep state of relaxation.
  • The second stage is all about you. The therapist applies three intensive supplements to your skin based on your personal consultation, choosing from Soothing, Hydrating, Age-Fighting, Anti-Stress, Radiance and Purifying, each one formulated to reactivate a specific function in your skin. The therapist uses Clarins Touch wave massage movements to increase your skin’s uptake of oxygen and absorption of CLARINSPRO active ingredients.
  • Finally, up to two intensive masks are applied from a choice of Ultra-Hydrating Cream-Mask, Soothing Gel-Mask, Repairing Balm-Mask, Radiance Plant Based Wrap, Age-Fighting Peptide Mask and Refreshing Lift Mask. This final stage is all about optimising the results so a further CLARINSPRO Radiance supplement is applied along with an eye cream and a day cream.

So now you know the process that you'll experience (and the results), have a look at the 5 types of facials in the Tri Active range to see which suits to you.

The Power Firmer

This facial is like switching on a light. Intensive nourishment and hydration reactivates the plump, peachy luminosity of youthful looking skin. Designed to visibly diminish the look of wrinkles, it's the ultimate wake-up call for mature skin.

The Lifting Replenisher

Is it the lines that stare back at you when you look in the mirror? During this facial, skin is retextured and a youth-giving renewal process intensively energizes. Your skin becomes instantly smoother, firmer, lifted and looks refreshed and rested. Just like a week off work!

The Radiance Reviver

Dull, tired, stressed - sound familiar? If your skin is feeling that way, then this facial intensively detoxifies and recharges. A cocktail of antioxidants and super revitalising plant extracts will restore health and radiance.  Think of it like a multi-vitamin for the skin.

The Moisture Quencher

Do you drink your 2 litres of water and still feel your skin is dry? This facial intensively replenishes depleted moisture levels in dehydrated skin, which immediately restores softness, suppleness, comfort and radiance. This is an oasis in the desert that is parched skin!

The Skin Soother

Call the skin doctor and let's repair that skin. Sensitive skin is immediately and intensively soothed and calmed to restore softness, suppleness, comfort and radiance. A cooling, healing hand – just what the doctor ordered.

All Clarins Tri Active facials are available in 2 appointment times - 1 hour 10 minutes and 1 hour 25 minutes. For the longer appointment, you will also enjoy a choice of either a 15 minute back massage or a scalp and foot massage.
