February comes from the Latin Februum, which has several meanings around the notions of cleansing, purification, renewal and regrowth. Although it is still cold outside, February also signifies the start of spring - with early daffodil buds popping up across roadsides and roundabouts everywhere. It is not surprising then, that many people come out of the wintery hibernation which is the month of January (granted, they’re probably all broke from Christmas and New Year festivities, plus they’re detoxing their livers after festive overindulgence) to begin their own kind of spring blossom - and a good old skin pamper after the wintery weather, central heating and dehydration from overindulgence is just the ticket.
I went for a Hydrafacial at Cathedral Aesthetics recently and I think it is the perfect facial to kick start the skin’s new year regime, even if it is after a month of hibernation and recuperation from December excess. Check out my video review here:
