So you can believe us when we tell you that our Bridal Beauty Expert, Laure Sejean, is not only an artist beyond measure but also has her ear to the ground and finger on the pulse of all things bridal make-up and beauty for the region & beyond. So, when she told us she had found the ‘holy grail’ of facials, our ears pricked and hair stood on end. Thankfully, the generous MUA that she is, Laure is here to tell-all and share the next best thing to hit our facial finds this year. Over to you Laure –
As many of you would have heard me say; ‘good make-up becomes great make-up when you take the time to prep your canvas’ – your skin. You may also know that I am a huge fan of Hydrafacials as the ultimate facial fixer. So, when I experienced age-defying results from my latest facial experience, I couldn’t wait to share it with you all, because this secret of the Stars in skincare is the perfect pre-wedding prep for your bridal makeup.
I’m regularly recommending a Hydrafacial to my brides as a night-before treatment; down-time is minimal and effects are great. There are a lot of clinics offering this type of facial in combination with other treatments to really maximise the results and this is the case of the Lucia Clinic, where I went to try their signature facial, the “Facial No1”
You may have heard of The Lucia Clinic from the social media of their extensive celebrity client list. Beauty moguls such as the Kattan Sisters, Huda, Mona and Alya often tout that this is their all-time favourite place for facials and treatments. What I love about this place is that they tailor the treatment specifically for each client, based on their needs and wishes, as well as their skin concerns. They also happen to have an impressive array of the latest technologies and devices to ensure the best results for your skin.
As you know, I never talk about products or treatments unless I’ve tried and tested for its @lauresejean approval and I’ve got to say, this is one of the best Hydrafacial and mask combo’s I’ve had in a long time and I’ll explain why –
Before starting the treatment the therapist cleans your face and does a skin analysis to ensure that the facial and treatment you have booked is the best one to target your wishes and skin concerns. Part of the treatment decided upon for me was to do some extractions for clearer skin before infusing Hyaluronic Acid, Vit C and other anti-oxidant serums. Once completed, the therapist applies a clear mask to help the gold or silver sheet mask application. Which one is used will depend on whether you want/need an extra boost to plump your skin or target specific concerns like hyperpigmentation, like me. The gold/silver sheet mask is then massaged into the skin using an ultrasonic device.
There was no pain, it was not invasive and the results were immediately noticeable. Immediately after, my skin looked more vibrant and younger with less visible fine lines. And the best part is, there is no down-time. This type of facial can be done once a month if you’re addressing skin concerns such as uneven skin tone, acne or an excess of sebum. But even if you’re doing it as a one-off before your big day, you won’t regret it!
Here’s another top tip! The best way to know if your facial or treatment was effective is to ask your partner (single ladies, consult your brutally honest bestie – it’s pretty much the same hehe). The morning after I had gone to do the Hyrdafacial my husband exclaimed: “Laure! You lost some years with this treatment” you can imagine how happy I was to hear it too! By the evening, as we enjoyed a nice and quiet dinner he confirmed it as he told me “You’re just as gorgeous as a star!”
If that doesn’t prove it then take it from me, this facial can make you feel the best version of yourself for your big day!

Thanks, Laure for sharing the skin secrets of the Stars with our Bride Club ME readers. There’s nothing that would make us happier than a blushing GLOWING bride on her big day.
