It’s been a long time since someone told me stop, breath and slow down.
And thats what I did one lovely, relaxing day in late December courtesy of my dear friend Emma from His and Hers Magazine.
As the New year approached, I suddenly felt the rush of the past year catch up to me. The return to work after months of maternity leave and the reality of working 24/7 round the clock as mum, cook, cleaner, driver, dog walker, employee (... the list goes on) all hit me and my caffeine ravaged skin like a tonne of bricks. I felt like it was time fake that elusive 'healthy glow' and look like I’ve somehow managed to get the recommended eight hours of sleep a night.
Every morning began the same, with the good intention of juicing up fresh fruit & veg, but the reality always ended in me running out the door with a (very strong) coffee to go. It was when I caught sight of my bedraggled reflection one morning that had me muttering to the pale reflection in the mirror "how the hell did I let myself get this bad??" I couldn’t remember the last time I had time to get my nails done, have a hair-cut, or let alone enjoy a cup of tea while it was still hot.
So when I was basically told that I looked like I needed a little ‘pick me up’, i.e you look like sh*t. I thought it's about time to slow down, recharge and spend just a little bit more time on 'me'.
Now when was I free again? This might be difficult ....
I finally found a treatment for brightening up exhausted, dull looking 'mum' skin without the use of needles and those expensive lasers! Turns out, the Intraceuticals facials & anti-ageing technology is THE best kept secret among many celebrity mums and make-up artists!
With a record 72 minutes & 35 seconds free in my supermum diary I booked myself in! After arriving at the Tracey Bell clinic I was whisked away and tucked up in to a serene treatment room. It was that peaceful I almost succumbed to mini mum nap! Whilst laying comatose with the treatment well underway I could feel life ebbing its way back in to my skin, pumping out the wrinkles from around my eyes. Even though I was completely relaxed, I could feel myself slowly re-energising. My skin was so hydrated and soft to touch that it felt like my face had been hooked up to an IV drip for a week!
This is a treat my skin and I will never forget. In fact, we're leaving the hints around the house in preparation for Mothers Day in a few months time. Tracey Bell's luxury Liverpool clinic is a little haven for mamas in need of a little escape every now and then. It's tucked away just off Hanover Street in the heart of Liverpool City Centre and is just one of the few places in the UK offering Intraceuticals facials and skincare. Prices start from £50 and I couldn't recommend this treatment enough for tired looking mamas in need of a little time out & tlc.
