This is what I love about Instagram: we get that inside peek into celebrities’ lives that we all want (well, likely everyone who’s reading I’m Not Obsessed, at least- haha). Jessica Alba posted a picture of herself getting a facial that looked like it belonged in a sci-fi movie. Now we’ve got the deets on her facial.
Jessica posted this picture on Instagram:
OMG: emergency session of what, exactly?
Jessica’s facialist, Shani Darden, explained that Jessica received an LED light therapy treatment. That was after getting a regular facial.
[The LED part] is one of the last steps in [my] facial process. The mask uses a combination of red and blue light to combat aging and acne. Red light boosts collagen, which plumps skin and helps dissipate wrinkles, and the blue light kills bacteria that creates acne. This mask is unique because you can use both the blue and red light either on their own, or simultaneously (pink light). You could do the treatment everyday, but for best results, once a week is ideal.”
Shani also shared the benefits of LED facials.
LED facials are great to get right before events because they do a fantastic job at taming breakouts and giving the face a radiant glow.”
I’m afraid to even asks what it costs ;). I have to be very careful with facials; they tend to irritate my skin. I wonder if the LED facials are easier on the skin than the chemicals they use in regular facials? I’ll have to investigate…
