With cosy season well underway, we’re all about maintaining that post-summer glow, and we’ve found the perfect solution for you – and trust us, it doesn’t have to be so hard! Notting Hill’s renowned boutique beauty spot Young LDN offers treatments for all skin types and issues, with their main aim to champion youth and inspire confidence.

To tackle our post-summer skin, we opted for the Aqua Pure Hydro Facial, a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, hydration and antioxidant protection, which in turn results in clearer, glowing skin. After a refreshing cleanse, the facial starts with a series of product applications applied through various steps, starting with the exfoliation, followed by the application of gentle acids such as hyaluronic acid and kernel extract to hydrate and soothe.

Next comes the electroporation, which pushes products into the skin and feels quite strange – though not painful at all and completely tolerable. Following on from this comes the heating and cooling stage, in the form of the heated LED light therapy (and as always, a welcomed arm and hand massage!) before a final cooling use of cold cyro balls to reduce inflammation. These final stages provide a number of benefits, but the main one for us is the cooling step, which soothes redness – if you’re prone to this after a facial then this bit is essential.

This is the perfect treatment to give your dry, sun-drenched skin that boost of hydration it needs. Let’s get ready for those cooler, darker days ahead!
