Today I had my first Hydra Facial by Samer Kazmi of The Face By SK in Stanmore, North London and these are my amazing results! I love how wonderfully relaxing this deep cleanse facial feels and my skin is literally glowing from having every spec of dirt, grease and dead skin entirely washed away – a feeling of such cleanliness and clarity that everybody deserves to have.

So being a bit of clean freak at home – and loving everything neat and in order – I found it beyond fascinating to see the colour of the murky water at the end of my treatment that had filled with dirt and grime from my face – just like cleaning old carpets! Who’d have thought your pores could hold so much old skin, black/whiteheads and bacteria?
Everybody deserves to look and feel their best and taking care of your skin is such an essential foundation for all things beauty and aesthetics related, which is why tailored packages for your individual skin type are so important. I personally suffer from facial redness and hormonal acne to my chin for which Samer used a combination of peptides and a peel in addition to my hydra facial order to target my problem areas – precisely why you should always seek a skin expert because a “one size fits all” doesn’t cater to individual needs.
Samer is an Independent nurse prescriber with over seven years in the beauty and aesthetic industry and we first met when she worked on Harley Street and she performed a beauty treatment on me. I loved how knowledgable, patient and conscientious she is, so when I saw her new clinic online I couldn’t wait to book in for a treatment.
Much like having you hair, lashes and nails done, when you find an expert in their field who entirely gets your needs and desires and creates the most amazing results then you’re prepared to follow them wherever they go!
With this being my first Hydra Facial, I’d seen seen such amazing reviews online but didn’t know how my individual skin type would compare to that of others results. Now that it’s autumn and the heating is going on, I’ve had so many photoshoots and events where I’ve had to wear really heavy makeup for such long hours, been out in the sun and mucky nature all summer and battled hormonal acne to my chin since my teens so I was expecting to see a bit of grime, but wasn’t prepared for just how much!
The award-winning HydraFacial is celebrated as the ultimate skin detoxifying and deep cleansing experience which is available worldwide; designed to rejuvenate the skin with active botanical ingredients to reveal glowing, refreshed and radiant skin with immediate results. It’s a treatment that everyone can enjoy and is suitable for all skin types and concerns which is fine for my rosacea and facial reddening.
The Six Stages Of The Hydra Facial:
- Step 1 – Detox: The facial begins with a specially formulated lymphatic drainage technique used to increase circulation and eliminate toxins and puffiness from the face and neck.
- Step 2 – Cleansing & Exfoliation: Dead skin cells and impurities are gently lifted away for a deep-cleansing result.
- Step 3 – Brightening Agent: A gentle glycolic and salicylic solution helps to loosen debris from the pores and brightens the skin.
- Step 4 – Extraction: Blackheads and impurities in congested areas are extracted using a honey extract and salicylic acid.
- Step 5 – Hydration: A combination of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides replenish, plump and hydrate the skin.
- Step 6 – Rejuvenation: An LED light mask is used to stimulate collagen and reduce redness, leaving the skin glowing.
Results for the Hydra Facial are instant as all dead skin cells and impurities are removed during this treatment leaving the skin beautifully hydrated and feeling baby soft. It also delivers powerful antioxidants to counteract damage from free radicals such as pollution, sun exposure and stress which can accelerate the ageing process and as such made my skin look and feel so plump, fresh and incredibly clean.
This facial is an ideal way to maintain healthy glowing skin as well as targeting specific skin conditions such as acne outbreaks, dullness, dry skin, redness and pigmentation. It is a wonderfully relaxing treatment to have, nestled into cosy warm towels on a bed as the face is cleansed, massaged and treated amongst soft lighting and relaxing music, the perfect pamper session and treat before a special occasion, event or to celebrate self love.
With my skin looking and feeling so incredible after my facial I combined this with an anti-wrinkle treatment to my forehead, frown lines and crows feet to iron out the creases and crinkles that come with age as my 34th birthday approaches next week and I’d much prefer to look 21 again.
Within a single visit I feel like a woman reborn, my skin is smooth and glowing, my pores are like that of a newborn and I feel preened and ready to take on the world! We all deserve to look and feel our best at any age and stage of life and to have freedom over how we choose to look. Whilst some people like to look very natural and others obviously enhanced, I prefer a mix of the two and love my individual results achieved today. What do you think?
