Murad are launching a new type of facial, the Murad Method. I was invited to try it before it rolls out in salons and spas nationwide next month. I headed to House of Fraser on Oxford Street where they have treatment rooms downstairs, something I wasn’t even was aware that they had. Before my treatment I had a quick youth cam done on the Murad counter, this isn’t part of the facial just something I wanted to try. The youth cam shows any areas of concern on my skin and also what could happen to it as I get older if I wasn’t using products to prevent or treat. My skin actually came out really good, the most concern was hyperpigmentation, which can be from sun damage or even hereditary.
I think sometimes I get so focused on my other skin issues like dehydration or maybe redness I never take sun damage so much into consideration. However recently I have been making sure I use products with SPF and also I do love Murad’s Environmental Shield range which protects against free radicals and also pollution, which is something I also have been made more aware of recently.
After the youth cam, I had my Murad Method facial in one of the treatment rooms. The Murad Method is a very personalised facial, so you don’t have to choose from a menu before booking. The facial will be completely tailored to your skin’s needs, as well as helping to boost your overall health and wellness. The facial is a mixture of touch point massage, nutrition advice and of course product recommendations to keep your skin in good condition.
Each facial begins with an in-depth, segmented, five zone analysis of the skin, using the letters M.U.R.A.D to reveal the true health of the skin. This allows the beauty therapist to treat multiple skin concerns at different levels of severity in one prescriptive treatment using professional strength products available exclusively to the Murad Method System. I also filled out a Wellness Wheel before my treatment, ranking different areas including stress, sleep and nutrition with a score. This is to help the therapist focus on your overall wellness, so do be honest and you will also get a personalised recipe card to take home to target skin concerns from the inside out.
I really enjoyed the Murad Method facial, the massage techniques really helped me to relax and mine even finished with a back massage. I left with a new recipe to try, an inspiring quote and skincare recommendations personal to me, which I found the personalised touch just will definitely put you in the right frame of mind.
The Murad Method facial rolls out in salons and spas nationwide this June, from £70 for 60mins. Find your nearest salon at www.murad.co.uk.
