When I was twenty years old, I never paid any attention to my skin. The only thing I did was remove makeup and wash my face. No one talked to me about moisturizer, toner, or serum, please. I had no time for it. When I passed the age of 25, I realized many wrinkles around my eyes, dryness around my cheeks, and premature aging skin, that's when I started taking skin care routine seriously. Now, at the age of 30, anti-aging is all I care about.
You've probably seen me doing some DIY skincare routines at home (like this one), but the truth is, nothing beats a facial session at a professional beauty spa. They have all the right tools and the right skills to achieve the results that my homemade beauty remedies can't. That's why I was actually looking forward to trying out the "Vagheggi Delay Infinity Treatment" at Bejeweled Nails and Facial Boutique. They have two outlets, one at Tanjong Pagar that offers only mani-pedi services while the other newly opened boutique at Tai Seng offers a full range of beauty treats from manicure, facial services to eyelash extension.
I dropped by their new branch last week to have my anti-aging facial done. It is a neat and clean shopfront, tastefully decorated with a creative products display, fanciful room divider, and an artistic picture of Audrey Hepburn in the waiting area.
While having my drink served by the staff, on this unique sofa, I was introduced to a bunch of Italian skincare products (which will be applied to my face later) called Vagheggi Delay Infinity.
Vagheggi Delay Infinity products are 100% made in Italy. They are best-known for delaying the skin aging process for women from age the 30s to 40s. They prevent an appearance of first wrinkles and other signs of skin aging, stimulate the collagen and maintain the skin elastin. At the same time, they rebuild and improve skin texture. There are many other benefits you can get from Vagheggi Delay Infinity. If you have been looking for these products in Singapore, you are in luck, because Bejeweled carries them in the store. Feel free to visit and have a look. Maybe, you can try the same treatment they gave me.
The 90-minute facial treatment includes 18 steps in total. It starts with a Welcome and Relax treatment with lenitive essential oil. Then, Eye and Lip makeup removal, followed by Face cleansing with Delay Infinity Cleansing milk. Second cleanse with equilibrium phytogel. Exfoliation with micro peel. Light extraction. Eyebrow shaping. Cold compress using a paper mask and soothing lotion. Scalp and shoulder massage.
This was the first half of the session. I'm getting tired just by typing all of these. I don't know how the beautician can manage to finish all of these routines. What did I love most about the first half of the treatment? It's when I looked at all of the stubborn blackheads and whiteheads that were completely removed. I always tried to remove them at home using all different types of masks. None of them worked. This is why it's always good to visit a beauty spa as often as you can.
Moving on to the radio frequency treatment to tighten early signs of loose and sagging skin. It also helps to deeply penetrate Delay Infinity Flawless Face Ampoule into my skin.
When all was done, it's time for masks. Not one, but three different types of masks pampered my face. A Delay Infinity Face Mask, an Equilibrium Lenitive Geomask, and lastly a Soft Mask.
It was hard not to fall asleep with this cooling mask on my face, in a dim lighted room while a saxophone music played softly in my ears. Life is so beautiful, isn't it?
If only we could wake up from our sleep and look like this everyday!
I took these photos the next day when I woke up, applied only sunscreen on my face, mascara on my eyelashes and moisturizer on my lips. I have never felt so good about my skin recently. There are a few things that I've learned over the past few year. Skincare is like dieting, it takes a lot of time and effort. There is no shortcut to perfection. But trust me, it'll be all worth it. When you focus on a good skincare, you don't really need a lot of make up.
I just chanced upon this quote from Coco Channel that I love so much: "Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it's up to you to merit the face you have at fifty". It's truly a wake-up call for me. I'm glad it's not too late for to start taking care of my skin. I hope it motivates you too.
