Looking after your skin is so important for confidence, hygiene, appearance - and the odd selfie!

As with all our professional facials, they have to be tailored to suit the client's skin type and condition. A course of facials is always recommended, with maintenance facials thereafter and specific home care for your needs.

The first step if you have never had one is to book a skin consultation, and the facial will be done on the same day. It's suitable for both men and women over the age of 18. At the moment the blackhead busting facials are the most popular. You start off by lying on a warm comfortable couch under a cosy blanket. A discussion about your skincare routine, water intake etc with your therapist is then completed. Then it's time for a skin scan under a magnifying lamp to highlight the main areas of concern. Dry patches, open pores, blocked pores, milia, congestion, oily, redness, bumps under the surface.... all the issues you have will show up during the scan.

The outline of a facial would be; double cleanse, tone, exfoliate with an exfoliator that suits your skin type. I sometimes have to do two exfoliators but it really does depend on the skin that I'm presented with. I always do the exfoliation under the steamer with ozone on. The steam will activate the sweat glands and this leads to healthier skin texture and tone because of improving blood flow. When you combine this with ozone, the steam opens the pores and ozone begins to penetrate the skin. Ozone has higher penetration levels than steam alone, and it can reach up to the lymph tissue and fat layer. The steam can be on from five to 15 minutes. We do the extraction when the skin is softened. Yes it may hurt a little, but the results are amazing. If the pores have been blocked this is a serious reason why your pores can look enlarged. It's very important to have them cleared out especially for men. The facial is finished with a double clay mask which tightens the pores and has an anti-ageing effect. Finally, the eye cream is applied, serum and appropriate day cream and SPF.

We have a microdermabrasion facial which might suit if you like a machine based facial. We will recommend which facial will suit you the best, but if you have a preference, we can tailor it to suit your skin requirements.

To book your skin consultation and facial call Jill on 064 6632966.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
