Coronavirus and the lockdown measures implemented around the world have taken a toll on many areas of life for most people. Beauty regimes are one such area, from forgoing simple tasks such as brushing hair or applying make-up regularly, to the widespread closure of salons and lack of access to beauty treatments.
Many people have emerged from lockdown needing a pick-me-up, but there are still many restrictions in place making it difficult to get the professional treatments required to get back to pre-lockdown looks. Advanced skincare technologies from Opatra London are designed to help people achieve salon-worthy skin at home, using a range of devices and lotions to create younger-looking, healthier skin.
A home spa day can help you look and feel better than ever, without having to visit the salon or worry about the potential health risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic.
Setting the Scene
Part of the fun of a spa treatment is the utter relaxation experienced throughout the day. Salons are designed specifically to induce feelings of comfort and relaxation, with the aesthetics, lighting, sounds and smells all combining for a luxurious, pampering experience. Setting the scene is therefore part of the process of creating a home spa day that will emulate that salon experience. Dimming the lights and lighting a scented candle or two while playing soft, gentle background music can all help to recreate the salon experience at home.
Massage is one area where high restrictions will likely apply for quite some time, due to the skin-on-skin contact required. The Opatra Dermisonic gently massages the facial tissue as part of a fourfold treatment process, which also uses LED light therapy, ultrasound stimulation and galvanic technology. Together, these treatments work to rejuvenate the facial skin in multiple ways: blood circulation is boosted, new skin cell production is stimulated, facial muscles are tightened, and wrinkles are smoothed, all using one handy anti-ageing tool.
Treating Tired Eyes
Worrying about the pandemic and related issues has been causing a lot of people to experience stress. When we are stressed, our sleep cycles are often disrupted, resulting in puffy, tired eyes with dark circles underneath, and wrinkles caused by frowning. The DermiEye device from Opatra London uses smart sensor ION technology to gently massage the area around the eyes, reducing puffiness and helping to regenerate skin cell production and stimulate blood circulation. The technology also helps the skin open up and become more receptive to absorbing creams, which can then be added to further improve the eye area. The lightweight, hand-held device is battery-operated, so it can be carried around and used when required for a much-needed relaxation session.
Another knock-on effect of too much stress is that the skin can become dry and require some extra TLC. Opatra London’s advanced skincare technologies range includes a hydrating moisturising cream designed to slow the signs of ageing and rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin. The cream, when applied after cleansing, helps make the facial skin appear radiant and healthy, promoting youthful firmness and nourishment for all zones. The anti-inflammatory properties of jojoba oil combine with an SPF-15 UV sunshield, protecting as well as repairing.
There is no better way to end a spa day than by lying back with an uplifting face mask, experiencing extreme relaxation while calming, soothing and moisturising the skin. The Opatra anti-ageing collagen mask contains natural emollient butters and oils to soften and soothe the skin, along with glycosaminoglycans and collagen – ingredients usually found in biological membranes. These combine with biotechnological marine extracts from natural sea water to help smooth wrinkles and promote firm, young looking, radiant skin free from blemishes and with an even skin tone.
Opatra products have been used by beauty professionals in salons around the world since 2010. The Opatra range is designed for professional and home use, allowing the consumer market to recreate the salon experience at home.
