Facials in the New Year and comments




Facials:
Just a quick one re: facials in the New Year. I haven't opened the books yet as I am travelling in January (for work!) and am waiting until the dates are locked down. So many of you travel to see me that I don't want to risk taking bookings and then having to cancel. Not cool. 
When we do open, we will automatically go to the waitlist first, so please don't worry about emailing again. We got you.
Also: the Clinic is rammed at the moment and closed over Christmas and New Year so if you have emailed, please don't worry if you haven't/don't receive a personalised reply. Your emails all go to an individual file, we have them, we'll get to you as soon as physically possible. Thank you for your patience.

Comments:
I have a backlog of comments on the blog and even more so on YouTube. I intend to get to these in a heavy fashion over the Christmas break. I honestly cannot wait. I love interacting with you - so apologies if you feel ignored, I promise I'm getting there. I appreciate each and every one of them.

  4. Hi Caroline, I've recently been binge reading your blog after Stephanie Nicole raved about you. I would like your suggestion for skincare for myself. I'm 19, soon to be 20. I don't have any kind of current routine at the moment. I am of indian decent and I live in South Africa so there's not a wide range of products available where I reside. I don't have bad skin, at least I don't consider it. I have some darkness around my chin and jaw area which I've noticed is common in women of colour. I have some freckles on my cheek area. I have white heads or like tiny bumps on my nose area And I feel like my skin is just dull. Do you think I should use a vitamin c serum? Or just cleanser, toner ,moisturizer and spf at this time ? And when should I include masks and exfoliating into the process? Your response will be greatly appreciated.

    1. Not Caroline, but happened to be sitting here when I saw your message. I can't speak on behalf of the almighty Hirons herself, but there is a vast array of resources available here on her blog about routines and what order things should be applied. Just check down the right hand side of the page for Cheat Sheets. She also has some fabulous reviews on various Vit C products that will help answer your question about whether or not to use it. You did mention exfoliation and CH has an amazing section on acid toning/chemical exfoliation. You could even use a clarifying/cleansing mask first (after cleansing/double cleansing and after acids if you use them), followed by a moisturising mask. You'd then follow on with your usual serums, moisturisers, oils and spfs. I know lady H often doesn't have time to give personalised recommendations here on the blog, so I hope this helps. CH - tell me off if I've given terrible misleading advice. Revishka, did you also know that Caroline has a YouTube channel? x

    1. +1 to this question please. I have always thought that the waiting list was going to be open as well when you start taking new appointments :S

  6. Hi Caroline, I was wondering if you could help me out and give me some tips on some skincare and products. I'm 16 and have a skincare routine where I exfoliate twice every week and use a skin cleansing brush every other wash when I cleanse my skin. I get bad acne on my chin, forehead and cheeks and also have hyper-pigmentation down my nose and on my cheeks. Would it be possible to recommend some skincare products for treating and calming hyper-pigmentation and acne scarring please. I have very oily and sensitive skin and haven't found any products that help reduce the oiliness of my skin that don't end up irritating it aswell so your help there would be greatly appreciated too. Thank you

    1. Not Caroline, but I'll throw my own twi cents and hope it might be able to help.

      Perhaps it'll be best to ditch the cleansing brush or tone down its usage frequency. Once or twice a week, perhaps? I personally prefer silicon pad myself, but my skin is older.

      Do you wear make up or sunscreen? If so, then double cleanse, or check Caroline cheat sheet for cleansing.

      For hyperpigmentation, vit c serum, niacinamide and sunscreen helps a lot. You just need to be very diligent about it.

      Considering your age, perhaps watching what you eat might be helps also.

  7. This may be a far-fetched question, but I thought I would throw it out there just out of curiosity. Does anyone of you "suffer" of dermatographism (skin writing)? Caroline, have you encountered this in your years of experience? I am asking because I have been dealing with this over the last few years, with my face being generally ok (thanks to advice from C.H.), however I am quite bad at moisturising my body, so I end up with dry and itchy skin most of the time. I have been using shower gels/oils for sensitive skin (La Roche Posay and Eucerin most recently) and the Lipikar range for moisturising as well, however I am really interested in any other recommendations that you may have. :)

  8. Hi Caroline, I was wondering if you could help me out - I'm 15 and have lots of small skin-coloured bumps on my forehead. I am assuming it's milia after I read your read post about it and want to know if you can recommend a skincare routine to get rid of it or which clinics are good in London. I remember reading somewhere that fern clinic was good but I'm not sure. Thank you.
