A facial ritual that helps you stand firm against time

Having already tried and become enamoured with Lakmé’s youth Infinity range (the eye crème is a particular favourite), my next step was to try the signature sculpting facial at my neighbourhood Lakmé salon. We started with the usual cleansing and exfoliation before moving onto the routine designed to facilitate the return of the sculpted look of your 20s. At this point a glow mask was applied, just before the gentlest of extractions. The skin firming serum from the range was then applied, with ultrasound to help it penetrate fully. After a light facial massage, a gauze moulding mask was applied, to tighten the worked out skin. All this was finished of with a final application of the Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Day Crème, which contains luminising pearls that lend an instant glow. Apart from containing ingredients like retinol, AHAs and glycerine, the products used in the sculpting ritual serve to balance your skin’s pH level and function as a barrier against UV rays. While I wasn’t feeling sensitive about the elasticity of my facial skin to begin with, I have to say that the Youth Infinity facial definitely made my skin feel firm and rejuvenated.
