In the spirit of all things bizarre, weird and wonderful, our season finale could only be all of the above – and then some. For episode eight of Bizarre Beauty, we headed over to Aesthetics International for a taste of their Fire and Ice Facial. Also known as the ‘Red Carpet’ Facial, it’s been tried and tested by the likes of Halle Berry and Gwyneth Paltrow who swear by its glow-giving properties for the ultimate party-ready look. So, if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.
As suggested in its name, it’s a facial that goes from one extreme to the other. Starting off with a hot mask followed by a cooling and calm mask. Between the two there’s extraction to remove dead skin cells, glycolic acid to brighten the skin, aloe vera and rosemary extract for that youthful glow.
And the best part is, you can get the facial done a mere few hours before your big do – because there’s no downtime involved unlike other chemical peels.
Stay tuned for season two of Bizarre Beauty next year as we bring you bigger, bolder and more bizarre beauty treatments.
