Lakme gives your face an anti-oxidant boost with its exclusive argan oil facial
For those who swear by argan oil for the hair, how about some a�?liquid golda�� therapy for the face? Lakmea��s new signature facial, Moroccan Liquid Gold Ritual, includes the Moroccan import with its anti-oxidant properties in generous lashings. As the pitch included anti-ageing therapy, cell renewal and combatting dryness, I decided to give it a shot.
After the mandatory cleansing and toning, the 60-minute treatment began with a vegetable peel, with extracts of pineapple and papaya that the therapist claimed would painlessly exfoliate the skin and remove blackheads. Thankfully, it didna��t sting like most peels. An aloe vera-lactic acid pack followed to even out my skin tone. But the highlight was the 15-minute massage with argan oil. The therapist knew what she was doing as she hit all the right pressure points and assured meA� shea��d work the vitamin-e rich oil thoroughly into my skin. A gold masque, to add a boost of freshness, rounded things off. The result: my tan was lighter and my skin felt fresh. However, the following day revealed a few tiny bumps along my T-zonea��so I wouldna��t recommend the facial for those with oily skin or an intolerance to papaya and milk. Moroccan Liquid Gold Ritual is available at all Lakme Salons. Rs.2,500 plus tax. Details: lakmeindia.com
