Whilst on Instagram one day I received a message from Rebecca Walker, the owner of ‘Your Beauty Pod’ asking if I would like to try her ‘Oxygenating Facial’ treatment. After doing a little bit of research about the facial I soon found out it was the latest treatment for celebs such as Kendall Jenner, Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian… just to name a few.. So I was quite excited to try out this treatment.
Rebecca has worked in luxury spas all over the country and has now set up her own beauty business, it’s safe to say you probably couldn’t find as much knowledge under the roof of a beauty salon.
On arrival to her City Centre beauty room I was greeted by the smell of beautifully lit candles and of course the welcoming presence of the gorgeous Rebecca. She then left me whilst I got myself comfortable on her heated massage bed so that I was super cosy whilst she worked on my face, neck and shoulders.
She started by cleansing my face thoroughly to remove all my make up, she then put me under the steamer to open up all my pores, mean while giving me THE most amazing neck and shoulder massage, then she began to exfoliate my face and give my face a good massage to release tension and stress before wiping away with lovely warm towels. This was then followed by Rebecca applying the Oxygenating Facial Mask which brings all the oxygen in your skin to the surface to give you that radiant look, the mask was then left on for 20 minutes whilst she gave me a gorgeous head massage using coconut oil. Once the face mask was wiped away she then finished off the facial by applying moisturise all over my face and neck. I was quite red after the treatment but Rebecca reassured me that by tomorrow my skin would be glowing and it was! In total the facial lasted around 1 hour and 15 minutes which was BLISS!! Normally £40 or with back reflexology £60.
After the facial Rebecca told me all about the products she had used and what her favourite beauty products are.. along with giving me so many beauty tips on how to keep my skin clear she could also tell that I wasn’t getting enough sleep or drinking enough water… This girl knows everything about skin!
Here are Rebecca’s Top Beauty Tips:
- Never sleep in your make up.
- Exfoliate your skin once a week, you can waste up to 70% of your products on dead skin cells otherwise.
- Always protect your skin with an SPF even in the winter.
- Find a cleanser that suits your lifestyle to ensure you clean your skin day and night.
- DO NOT SMOKE! It’s one of THE most harmful things you can do to your skin.
All of the products Rebecca used were from the Potion Shop, which is a Manchester based brand that use all organic products, vegan friendly and paraben free ingredients.
