At QVC throughout January we are looking at positive change, it’s a great time to set goals and put the wheels in motion to achieve them. We’ve even launched a Fitness & Wellbeing page on our website so why not take a peek? I trialled the Tunturi GO 50 exercise bike which features in my previous blog. As with everything I truly believe mind and body are integrally linked, so if we are going to make well-being improvements it must incorporate both – it’s about balance and moderation.
To counter-act the indulgence of food and drink over the festive period I decided to treat my skin with what it deserves, some pampering by an expert! I was lucky enough to get an appointment at The House of Elemis in Mayfair for some serious skin treatments. It was such an indulgent but beautifully luxurious treat, I was completely pampered by my therapist.
On arrival you can see all the Elemis products displayed, most of which we offer at QVC – I immediately felt at home. My therapist then came over to introduce herself and have a chat about my skin, my issues and what I was hoping to achieve from the visit. I was really just after some relaxation but if she could address my dehydrated skin I’d be delighted. She explained at this time of year most of us have dehydrated and fatigued skin from our lifestyle, heating/air conditioning and over indulgence. We then headed up to the treatment suite, all the decor and the lighting are beautifully relaxing – there’s a wonderful air of calm despite the fact you’re in central London; and naturally the aroma is divine.
Elemis are about personalised treatments, before any facial begins they map your skin issues on a state of the art machine so they can tailor the treatment especially for you. The therapists use ground breaking technology as part of their BioTech facial and I couldn’t wait to see and feel the results. The treatment bed was so comfortable, the temperature of the room was just right and I already felt even more relaxed. The entire one hour treatment was wonderful from start to finish – I pretty much drifted off. I had to chuckle a few times because even though my eyes were closed I recognised lots of the products she was using on me from QVC. My skin looked amazing afterwards, I was really impressed with how hydrated, fresh and revitalised it appeared.
Back in reception I was offered a special fresh skin juice of my choice to complement the treatment. The entire experience was amazing, highly recommended – but remember if you can’t for whatever reason, we stock plenty of Elemis offerings right here.
One of the products recommended by the therapist was the Skin Bliss Capsules which are packed with antioxidants to de-stress tired and fatigued skin after the festive period – my therapist said everyone, regardless of skin type should look to use the capsules for at least a month every 6 months, and now is the perfect time of year to try them.
