Party-ready beauty treatments
It’s time to book in for pre-party beauty treatments ready for Christmas and New Year.
We may be indulging in festive treats but the diet can wait till January (or never). We can still make ourselves look and feel fabulous by booking in for pre-party beauty treatments like a mini spa trip or a fabulous blow dry.
Here are our favourite ways to glam up for party season…
Massages and facials by the river
Live True London
Live True London are luxury salons who do all kinds of hair services and are especially amazing at colour, with three dotted across London in Vauxhall, Clapham and Brixton.
In their Vauxhall Nine Elms branch they also have an in-house beauty salon with top therapists offering a range of revitalising treatments and bespoke services including nails, beauty, waxing and facials. The beauty therapists and nail technicians can even provide hand-painted nail art and fabulous lashes in the relaxing and friendly salon complete with beautiful original art and authentic, exotic decor straight from Morocco.
We both opted for 2 hours of pampering with a Dermalogica prescription facial (just £50 for 1 hour!) and a 1 hour massage
The Dermalogica skin treatment was totally customised to our individual skin needs through zone-by-zone Face Mapping® skin analysis. Our skin felt amazing afterwards thanks to professional double cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, a mask and more. Then we enjoyed a newly-launched deep tissue massage which was totally needed as our bodies were stressed, tight and worn out. from work and the gym. Call 020 7582 6312 for more info on massages!
