So i got an amazing new Pisces face lady, fresh in from working with slebs in L.A and she totally knows her stuff. She does a killer massage that can send you from stressed out potential maniac practically breaking your finger texting aggro crap into hyper-Zen mode, drooling softly into her organic towels. Her client list is very interesting.
Anyway, i was amazed to find that she is virulently against lasers and says that Sydney (the city i live in) is over-run with lasers – i am talking about Fraxel & Co. There are a whole lot of different ones, super-costly but said to have sensational results. I got I.P.L. once to blast off some sun damage on my decolletage but it was so painful, blister-inducing, expensive with next to zero results etc that i didn’t do it again. But i’ve always felt a bit guilty for not lifting my game and getting in with the laser crowd. A woman at a nail spa even tried to get me do it saying “don’t let the pain put you off.”
But Pisces Face Lady says the trend has peaked, the complexion-fanatics she knows in L.A. are all galloping away from it bigtime as it’s basically a controlled burning of the face, no matter how you trick it up. Plus it’s hush-hush but it is not a procedure without some risk and side effects. I asked her if this was just something she was saying because she didn’t have a laser machine and she swore no. She’s not even haute hippy – Piscean Face Lady likes l.e.d lighting & micro-currents + injectibles where appropriate.
But laser face stuff AND microdermabrasion AND daily exfoliating are all finito. Last era. She said they’d begun in the late 90s but totally peaked. People with fancy expensive machinery naturally still want to get their $ worth so they’re pushing it but proper massage (firming, lymph draining etc) is The Everything. And so that is what got me thinking that the machines (microdermabrasion, beauty lasers) were all a manifestation of Neptune in Aquarius. It kind of makes sense.
As – omg – does the end of Saturn in Libra, sign of beauty-care. Everyone is re-assessing their skincare & beauty regime, paring it down for the Zap Zone, making it more authentic. It doesn’t have to be olive oil and mantra-chanting but it sure as fuq should not be super-costly petro-chemicals with bog freshener fragrance & having our cute faces burned or ground away at to force more collagen or whatever.
