So, Friday started off with my second session of the Dermaplanning and Chemical Peel skin treatment, which I do through Skinsational Medical Aesthetics in Fourways. As mentioned before, the aim being to even out my facial skin tone with the rest of my body. I have to say that the treatment seems to be working so far, I was worried that it wouldn’t, since I’m always out in the sun…well, it’s always been the case for me anyway – spend the whole day out in the sun and come back way darker than I left home😏. So, check this out…I think there’s very little difference, meaning the treatment is working. I do see the glow on my skin after my session… What do you think?.. PS: the photos have not been edited…
Generally, African people don’t use block, I never even believed it worked until now. I was concerned that with the unwanted skin scraped off, my skin would be more sensitive and burn easily. My Skin Therapist told me that as long as I use sun block, suggested one with SPF-50, I would be ok. Guys, I didn’t even care to know there are different SPF levels!!! I reluctantly purchased it – it doesn’t really come cheap😕. I settled for Eucerin as it controls oil as well so that’s what I’ve been using since I started this journey last month…over and above the face wash & face cream my Skin Therapist suggested. My word, I now have a Skin Therapist…that is SUPER COOL😎!!! When I bought it, I thought to myself “it better not disappoint me since it doesn’t come cheap”. I can safely confirm, it works! USE SUN BLOCK IF YOU CARE FOR YOUR SKIN… make or female!!!
My Saturday started very early, it was supposed to be a Rock Climbing morning but due to some equipment issues, we settled for a hike at Kings Kloof Hiking Trails, in Krugersdorp. I usually prefer starting early, around 6 – 6.30am, especially when it’s hot but because we were a larger group this time, people coming from different parts of Johannesburg, we started at exactly 8:22am and we decided to take the 10km trail.
That trail is a bit boring in the beginning, and then BOOM! There’s this beatiful stream, I don’t really know where it comes from or leads to. But we just had to stop for some snaps.
Then we carried on again…and then BOOOOOMMM!!! A beautiful waterfall. We came prepared this time (first time we didn’t know about it and wished we’d brought our swim suits) and had our swim suits on underneath our hiking clothes. So we went right in, aiming for that beautiful waterfall. The water was ice cold🥶🥶🥶, felt like small needles pricking into my skin…but nooo, we want to take pictures…we won’t die mos💁🏾♀️🙃. You have to admit it was worth it!
After about an hour of enjoying the waterfall, we got dressed and carried on, we had about 2 km’s left to cover and all we just wanted was to reach the finish line. Plus, we were now chasing to be on time for our next activity. Some went home to change but some, like me, are ever ready! We had packed our changing clothes and went straight to the venue for our next activity. We arrived at Beverly Hills Grillhouse just after one, straight to the bathrooms to freshen up and change and the kizomba Spring fling party began. The original idea was just to have a small gathering with friends, play some kizomba and dance…but hey life happened. I don’t know about others but I had a ball…yho! Just as the party was heating up, neighbours complained about noise. We had totally forgotten that we are still under lockdown regulations🤦🏾♀️. Some of us delayed going home but eventually we had to…
Thank you to Ali, the restaurant owner whom I have gotten close to during lockdown, for allowing us to have this party at his restaurant. Very lively & friendly guy.
And Sunday…I’m keeping the Sunday activities to myself🙃🤐😁. But for lunch I took my son to The Kitchen-L’antico Giardino. It’s a very cosy restaurant situated in Lanseria. The place breathtakingly beautiful, peaceful with great food and great service! If you’re into finding and trying restaurants, you’ll absolutely love it!!!
It’s been another great weekend. Here’s to a beautiful, successful week ahead!!!
