My Story

Chantal Louise Skin

My love my passion my life ❤️

Where it all started…

I first became obsessed with skin when I was about 15. I was getting breakouts and had heard the pill makes your skin so beautiful and healthy. I went to the doctor and clearly remember asking for this specific pill that gives you flawless skin.

I wanted healthy glowing clear skin just like my friends and I absolutely LOVED the effects it had on my skin.

Chantal Louise Skin Therapy_LR-12It was only when I realised the pill doesn’t agree with me, that I went off it and my skin starting breaking out.

I felt ugly, depressed and avoided leaving the house so that I could hide away at home without makeup on and let my skin breathe.

I even remember being one of those girls, who would sleep with makeup on afraid my boyfriend would see my REAL skin. I’d wake up in the morning and retouch my makeup over the top of the makeup I’d slept in. 

If only I could talk to myself now…

A couple years later, I started beauty college and was obsessed with skin care. Mainly because I was looking to solve my own skin issues.

I remember one of the teachers along with fellow students analysing my skin and feeling so ashamed and embarrassed.

No ones advice, skincare and treatments were helping my skin. I was so DESPERATE.

Chantal Louise Skin Therapy_LR-13I went through a faze of going on and off the pill, because it was the only thing that helped my skin. One day, I had enough of the reactions the pill was having on my body that I decided to never go back on it again.

The Passion..

I was determined to manage my skin and if no one could help me, I would find out myself.

So to do that I attended many training sessions on skin and product knowledge. Along the way I learnt so much and became obsessed. 

I started to do my own research on ingredients and eliminated all the BAD products from my cupboards.

Me and dermaluxWhat helped me..

In terms of treatments, for me, what saved me, was skin needling. This was a new treatment at the time, where needling rollers were used. The rollers were much more aggressive and sore than what needling is today.

After just 3 treatments and the right skin care at home, my skin was CLEARED!

My passion for skin has never died. I know the feeling it creates not only on the outside but more importantly on the INSIDE. I get so excited about skin results and feel like I was BORN to do this. 

Now…

I’m fulfilling my dream and being able to help others achieve healthy, beautiful, clear skin like I have today ðŸ˜ I’ve never been so happy and felt so fulfilled.

Honestly, the best part of my job is being able to transform a shy, nervous, scared, closed person into an open, happy, bright and confident butterfly.

I help you to understand how your skin works and give you honest options of how to manage and create a healthier skin (even if I can’t treat it with what I offer)

Healthy Wedding Skin Tips For Your Big Day

How to get Healthy Wedding Skin

You have your big day ahead of you, and with the stress of everything going on, the last place you want it to show, is on your face. Get healthy wedding skin for your big day with these steps.

Fill up on antioxidants: 

antioxidants for healthy wedding skin

Snack on berries, carrots and sweet potato which act as antioxidants to neutralise any free radicals  (Stress, pollution, smoking, sun) that get into your skin and damage those healthy skin cells. Rehydrate your skin with nuts and salmon, to replace your natural essential fatty acids, keeping your skin plump and dewy. If your prone to breakouts, try cutting back on dairy and processed food.

Beauty Sleep

Yes, that’s right. Getting a full 6-8 hours a night really does help keep your skin healthy. Whilst sleeping, your body and skin is constantly repairing and restoring itself. Getting anything less than 6-8 hours will result in a dull, tired, red, irritated skin.

Up your water intake

Want that healthy bridal glow? Up your water intake to 2-3 litres a day! This will help flush out toxins and rehydrate your skin. Don’t forget to replace water lost through sweat during exercise.

Just breathe…

When the stress hormone,Cortisol arrives, it stimulates oil glands producing more oil therefore causing breakouts. Your blood rushes to your main body organs leaving the skin with a dull appearance and your facial muscles are contracted more often, creating more lines and wrinkles. Maintain stress levels with regular pilates or a yoga class. Spend 5 minutes focusing on your breathing or better yet, treat yourself to a facial and get relaxation plus healthy wedding skin results.

Stay out of the Sun

The sun is the biggest factor to ageing skin. 90% of the way our skin looks is caused by the sun. Protect yourself daily with an SPF to avoid pigmentation from appearing and to prevent lines and wrinkles.

Healthy wedding skin starts at home

 Get yourself onto a good skin care routine. What you put on your face everyday is so important and may just fix your skin concerns. Having a good skin care routine at home with the correct products will help to maintain salon skin treatment results.
