Ladies, ever have that morning when you’ve managed a one-eye open cup of java, sit down at your vanity to proceed with the morning skin care ritual, and realize….oh, hell! My neck looks like…an elephant! Well dearies, I did, and then I had a meltdown. Luckily, I was in the country with my favourite skin-care spa, so I called up and made an appointment…PRONTO!
Mimando is awesome and I always feel like a million bucks when I leave. Glowy and all 🙂 So when I explained the situation and whined a bit about it. She was, a superstar! I had a neck-facial… Is there an actual name for that? We’ll call it a ‘nacial’.
As you can see from the photo, I also got a bit of care on the face too…don’t want the face to feel left out! 😉 OK, so here’s how it went down. All my skin was cleaned, followed by an ultrasound treatment. (By the way, you really don’t realize how much this area is actually neglected until you get a treatment…the skin on my neck was already jumping for joy by the time the ultrasound treatment was over. ) I then got a poultice treatment (haudehoida) in order to increase absorption, which was then followed by a collagen mask…on my neck.
In the picture, you can see that the collagen mask was covered with a light covering to prevent it drying out. I was then left to soak up the goodies in peace for about a half-hour. (Give or take; I was too preoccupied enjoying myself relaxing to even think about the time.) After the break, she came in and removed the mask, made sure that everything had soaked in and followed with a moisturizer.
I seriously cannot convey how much better I felt when I looked in the mirror. To me, it seems as though at least the last year of hard travel and long hours had been wiped away with an eraser…and with just the one treatment! Although I felt a bit awkward requesting a ‘nacial’, it actually turned out really great. And quite affordable to boot 🙂
So there you go…’nacial’ at mimando spa in Finland …totally worth it. I wanna go back! Wherever you are, if you’re having the same elephant neck problems I was having, I suggest you look into the possibilities of getting something like it.
Who doesn’t love a day at the spa, and it’s more affordable and more fun than investing in tons of creams (some with strange skin tightening ingredients like…snake venom?? – once, I heard about this when in the States…unfortunately I am unable to recall the name of the product. Nor am I 100% sure that it wasn’t just crazy talk from the sales lady. But, I digress) that may or may not actually achieve long-lasting effects. So…go for it, ladies! Every time I go for a treatment, I get more and more convinced that a spa facial or ‘nacial’ in this case…just can’t be beat!
Love to hear your thoughts 🙂
