A guide to beautiful skin

#No Makeup

A growing number of celebrities and “real” women are choosing not to wear any makeup at all thanks to the increasingly popular #NoMakeup movement taking over social media.  For many women, beauty starts with great skin.  Your skin says a lot about your lifestyle, possible age and how well you take care of yourself.  Make-up can enhance your natural beauty but getting the no makeup look isn’t always easy to achieve.  A good daily skin care routine and sun block plus regular BLOOM rejuvenating facials will play an important part in enabling you to pull off the ‘natural look’, slowing down time and having beautiful skin.

There are many things you can do to give your skin the best chance of being beautiful, these include:

  • Daily use of a sun block – on lips, face and body all year round.
  • Keep your skin hydrated by using a moisturizer in the morning and evening
  • Cleanse your face at least once a day
  • Exfoliate your skin once a week
  • Use of a Serum
  • Use a moisture repair mask once a week
  • Limit sun exposure
  • No sun bed tanning
  • Reduce daily alcohol intake
  • No smoking
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Reducing stress
  • Getting plenty of sleep
  • Regular laser rejuvenation facial – this is a facial offered at BLOOM


What is a BLOOM laser rejuvenation facial and how does it work?

Based in our beautiful turn of the century villa in Wellington, you will be treated to a very relaxing and painless treatment with our Cutera Genesis Laser, complimented by our range of OFRA Cosmeceuticals.

Genesis Laser rejuvenation employs laser light targeted to the dermis, this is the deeper layer of the skin where collagen is made which stimulates an increase of new collagen production.  Our rejuvenation facial is safe, gentle and painless.  It can treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven textures, facial redness, sun damage and more.  Unlike other laser treatments it is done without destroying the upper layers of the skin (non-ablative) and is a quick, painless procedure with no downtime. It appeals to people who cannot take time off work to recover, and people preparing for a special event who don’t want to risk looking red or swollen.  You can wear makeup straight away and resume your normal daily activities.  The result will be healthier, smoother, more beautiful skin. 

For best results, multiple treatments are recommended, spaced one to four weeks apart

The OFRA cosmeceuticals we use are made with the most natural ingredients and are vegan and cruelty-free.  All the OFRA cosmeceuticals we stock accelerate the effects of our laser treatments, promote anti-aging and will help you to achieve beautiful, radiant, and healthy skin!
