OSKIA went backstage at London Fashion Week, prepping skin for the glamourous models in the Amanda Wakeley Collection so we thought it only right to share some of our therapist’s top tips from the show!


The Glow Facial, exclusively designed for the show, was created to reflect the healthy, athletic Icelandic warrior vision of the designer’s collection, leaving skin feeling firmer, energised and refreshed, ready for make-up application.
Read on for a step-by-step guide outlining the products used along with some tricks to get skin catwalk ready!

 

Step 1: Renaissance Cleansing Gel + Renaissance Mask
- Add 1 pump of Renaissance Cleansing Gel to 1 spatula scoop of the Renaissance Mask, and apply to the skin using long stroking movements for a super-charged fruit enzyme boost.

Step 2: Facial Massage
- Starting on the jawline make small circles with your thumbs, starting close to the centre to the face, and gliding up towards the ears. Repeat this movement in 3 to 4 rows until you reach the hairline to stimulate the blood flow and lymphatic system.
- Lift & glide the thumbs across the brows, then use your ring fingers in lifting movements underneath the eye area towards the top of the ear. This helps to maintain a more youthful appearance by gently reversing sluggish circulation and brightening the eye area.

Step 4: Stimulating Compress
- Use a warm muslin or flannel to remove the product in long gliding movements to further remove any dead skin cells.

Step 5: Cooling Compress
- Hold a cool muslin to the skin for 5 – 10 seconds. Place on cheek & jawline and then forehead. Repeat on the other side. Using a cool cloth leaves the skin feeling firmer, energised and refreshed whilst also helping to soothe and calm sensitive skins.

Step 6: Nutri-Active Day Cream
- Apply 2 pumps of the Nutri-Active Day Cream. Rich in vitamins, hyaluronic acid and omegas, this lightweight moisturiser hydrates and leaves skin silky soft.

Step 7: Restoration Oil
- Finish by lightly pressing 2 drops of Restoration Oil into the skin, focussing on the cheeks for a gorgeous dewy finish ready for make-up.
