Passion fruit skin peel at Therapie Clinic

Acne/ service review
Therapie Clinic Molesworth Street Dublin

Therapie Skin Clinic Molesworth Street Dublin

If you follow my Instagram story, then you would know that I recently got a facial at Therapie Clinic on Molesworth Street in Dublin. Prior to getting my treatment done, I went in for a consultation with Sarah to talk about my skin concerns and problematic areas I was hoping to improve.

The Consultation

She introduced herself to me at the waiting area and kindly asked me to fill in an assessment form where I shared the details of my hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation. Much like anyone with problematic skin, I would normally feel a bit self conscious about going in to these places to have them essentially judge a part of me. But I never felt so reassured after my chat with Sarah.

She put me so much at ease and made me feel that things would get better, even with the type of acne I have. I felt absolutely no judgement from her at all and after having been to Therapie a couple of times, I think it is safe to say that Sarah is probably the warmest person I have met there.

I could go on about how much I felt comforted by Sarah, but unfortunately this blog is not about her. So let’s move on to the treatment that was recommended on the day, shall we? 🙂

The Treatment

Ordemic Enzyme Peel at Therapie Clinic Molesworth Street Dublin

Ordemic Enzyme Peel

Due to my skin concerns – namely hyperpigmentation and hormonal acne, we opted for an ordemic enzyme peel which contains passion fruit enzymes and peptides. This mini-peel isn’t as abrasive as other treatments and that’s why she thought it would be best for my skin.

  1. To kick things off, she did a salicylic acid cleanse. Salicylic acid is great for helping to clear out the pores as it is one of the few acids that goes deep into the pores to help clean any dead skin and excess oil.
  2. Next, an Iluma Exfoliating Powder was used to help remove any surface dead skin before putting on the peel.
  3. After removing this with a damp cotton pad, the ordemic enzyme peel was applied. This passion fruit and peptide solution helps breakdown the upper layer of dead skin to bring loads of new fresh healthy skin to the surface.
  4. The steamer was turned on ahead of applying any products to my skin which opened my pores throughout the facial and allowed for as much extraction as possible.
  5. She then applied the Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Mask which helps to exfoliate, moisturise and create a healthy glow.
  6. To finish off, the Iluma Intense Lightening Serum was applied to help with discolouration of the skin.

The treatment lasted for about an hour overall and is recommended to do one of these facials every four weeks in order to maintain the results of this treatment. However, I did see instant results.

The Result

My skin appeared brighter and luminous – a healthy glow as opposed to the greasy look that oily skinned people are prone to! The following day I did see a bit of a break out of white heads, which is common after a peel, if doing extractions. My cystic acne however did flatten out so I was happy to see that.

I cannot thank Sarah enough for how calming she made this experience for me. After her thorough explanation of the treatment and all the advice given to me by the staff at Therapie, I feel I will be more dedicated to getting more facials done.

We believe in absolute commitment to customer service, and offer free consultations for all our treatments. Our friendly, professional staff is happy to help; we regularly run special offers on treatments; courses and products

Teatox: 6 things I liked about Yo Tea

Health/ product review

yo-tea-2

I can already sense some of you diehard fitness fanatics judging me as I write this. But before you start going on a rampage about how much you dislike the idea of teatoxing, do hear me out. I was in no shape or form trying to lose a ton of weight when I first started this 28-day teatox – If anything, I could probably do with a few extra booty gains!

One of the main reasons why I decided to give Yo Tea* a try is because prior to starting it, I had fallen off track: I was incredibly stressed with work and other things so my diet was nowhere near where I wanted it to be, gym was no longer bae, I really needed something to give me a boot up the bum and Yo Tea did exactly that for me!

I took it for 28 days. Once a day for the first week because I wanted to introduce it to my body very gradually. And then after a few days or so, I started taking it in the morning and evening, as per instructed.

Yo Tea offers a highly effective detox solution based on an ancient recipe that was originally created to help with digestion. The special combination of plant extracts, herbs and Oolong Green tea, helps with the purification of the body’s cells.

Drinking Yo Tea tea daily, combined with regular moderate exercise and a sensible eating regime will help you to safely achieve your detox goal.

After reading up on Yo Tea, I thought it would be safe for me to start using it for a much-needed pre-holiday detox. So without further ado, here are the six things I liked about taking Yo Tea:

1. The toilet seat isn’t your best friend

Apologies for being so blunt, but I’m sure this is what most people would assume when it comes to teatoxing: In one end and out the other just as fast! Surprisingly enough, I didn’t pass stool excessively with this tea. They say it takes 8 hours for the laxative effects to kick in but for me it was usually within an hour. I don’t mean to over share, but I do think it’s important to highlight these things, especially if you plan on having one before taking an hour long bus journey to work, or God forbid, are staying over at a new partner’s place*awkward*  So to answer what you’re thinking, I didn’t spend a whole month with the runs! Again, apologies…

2. It helps remove harmful toxins

The only times Yo Tea had a laxative effect of me was when I ate junk food. Any time I nibbled on something even as little as a few nuggets from Mc Donald’s, I’d find my stomach getting crampy, noisy and then…. I’m sure you can figure out the rest!

3. It helps put you in the right mind set

Because of the unpleasant experience that can come from eating junk food while on Yo Tea, I found myself avoiding cheat meals a lot more than usual. Rather than snacking on ice cream or crisps, I’d have a homemade protein instead. It really put me in the right mind set of wanting to eat healthier.

4. It increases energy levels

I found myself going to the gym a lot more once I started taking this tea. I went at least three days a week, and sometimes even five! I slowly started to see my energy levels increase because of it and the gym became bae again 🙂

5. It reduces bloating

This is a massive one for me. Everyone who sees me tells me I don’t have a pick on me, however I do suffer from bloating and my stomach has always been a problem area for me. Taking Yo tea helped reduced the bloat for me and I even felt less sluggish after eating heavier meals.

6. It tastes like regular tea

Being a teatox newbie and seeing the awful effects teatoxing has had on people around me in the past, I just assumed this tea would taste awful too! It doesn’t. Yo Tea looks and tastes exactly like regular tea, it even tastes a bit sweet so you don’t always have to add a sweetener to it!

yo-tea

These are six things that I liked about Yo tea and this is how my body reacted to taking it. No two people will react the same way to a product because everyone’s body is different. Just remember, you can’t out run your fork and a tea isn’t a magic bullet for weight loss or good health. Do your lunges, eat your greens and if you can get Yo Tea as an addition to an already healthy lifestyle, then you’ll be all the better for it! 🙂

You can get a 30-day bag supply of Yo Tea (€29.95) exclusively from Therapie Clinic in store or online.
