A celebrity facialist to the stars has revealed her quirky tips on how you can achieve a youthful glow like the stars.
Chelsee Lewis, who is based in Mayfair, has had over 22 years of experience in the beauty industry, and carries an ever-growing celebrity clientele – including the likes of Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow, Suki Waterhouse and Erin O’Connor.
Driving to keep skin healthy, young and looking beautifully fresh, she creates bespoke treatment experiences and skincare plans so each client meets their skincare goals.
And now, speaking exclusively to Femail, she has told of some of her best-kept secrets – including splashing your face 15-20 times with ice cold water before applying makeup, using ultrasound for tightening and anti-ageing and sperm to help reduce wrinkles.
It’s one of the best ways to boost oxygen and improve circulation to the skin, which will give you an immediate glow.
Sexual intercourse helps the stress hormone but also helps to balance the hormones and improve collagen production. But you can go one step further with a sperm mask. Yes, you heard right!
Using your partner’s sperm as a mask is full of a compound called spermine, which is an antioxidant which can help reduce wrinkles, smooth the skin, prevent acne or spots and give you overall healthy-looking skin.
MICRO-NEEDLING ON THE LIPS
This small device with 12 small needles will glide over the lips, making them appear plumper and fuller. They will remain lovely and soft without any downtime or side-effects.
This is one of my favourites for waking up tired-looking skin. Fill the sink with ice cubes and cold water and splash the face 15 to 20 times before applying your makeup.
It will leave your skin feeling tighter and brighter, and your makeup will sit beautifully.
Take a teaspoon of coconut oil first thing in the morning before brushing your teeth on an empty stomach. Swish this around the mouth 15 to 20 minutes.
You will feel your lower face starting to ache as it’s exercising the lower muscles in the face.
If you stick to the same regime on a regular basis you will feel your face starting to get tighter.
But this also has other benefits, including antibacterial and antioxidant – it also boosts energy, gives you whiter, stronger teeth and helps clear the skin of impurities, acne and rashes.
Ultrasound is not just used on pregnant women – it’s growing increasingly popular for tightening and for anti-ageing and is one of the latest pieces of technology on the market right now.
HIFU face is a non-surgical facelift treatment using high-intensity focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and face without any downtime.
It works by focusing energy to help stimulate the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skin surface.
The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen resulting in a lifted, firmer and more toned appearance of the skin.
Results will develop over the course of two-three months with some clients experiencing continued improvement for up to six months.
Whilst the 3D HIFU face procedure will not be as invasive as surgical intervention, it is an exciting alternative for those clients who do not want to undergo surgery.
