After years of looking for a solution to her sensitive skin, Digital Writer Elaine Loke finally finds one to rave about and it’s the Asterspring Soothing and Rebalancing Therapy.
“While my journey to great skin started when I was in high school, I’ve yet to find the perfect solution for flare-ups when I’m stressed out or it’s that time of the month. So I was very optimistic about giving the Asterspring treatment a try as it promises to rebalance and strengthen the skin’s microbiome, which is the eco-system of microorganisms living on our skin to keep it healthy. The treatment began with an overview from the staff about my skin’s condition followed by double-cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction to prepare the skin for the nourishing products to come. The therapist was very friendly during the service and walked me through each step of the process so I know what went on my skin such as the ampoule mist and serum containing the Botanic-Calm complex to reduce skin redness and irritation, EquaPH complex to boost skin moisture and Symbiotics complex made of pre- and pro-biotics to balance the skin’s microbiome.
I was told that for maximum results, two sessions of nanotechnology oxygen mist spray was used for nine times more penetration of hydration, followed by a multi-grain soothing mask with the brand’s pressure point drainage massage techniques (which felt oh-so-good BTW!) to restore the senses and keep me in deep relaxation. The treatment ended with the application of toner, moisturiser and sunblock. While my skin was clean and glowing post-treatment, it was still very raw and so the therapist gave me useful advice on how to take care of my face for the next few days until my skin had fully healed, which I find is super important as not many places do that.”
