What: The Méthode Jeanne Piaubert Slim Face Lymphatic Drainage Treatment ($288 per session) from TaraBliss Spa, is a quick and effective detox facial for purging toxins and impurities. It starts with a lymphatic draining massage, followed by thorough cleansing.

Tried-and-tested: “I had been struggling with adult acne for the past year. Although the situation is now under control, the aftermath of the acne treatment is dull looking skin. Plus, my busy work schedule has kept me up late, resulting in inadequate sleep.

My therapist observed that my skin had been in a state of dehydration, resulting in sluggish microcirculation and blocked lymph nodes deep within.

After thoroughly cleansing my face, she proceeded with a massage. If one is expecting a traditional Chinese tui na massage, and its accompanying brute strength, you’ll be surprised that this treatment’s massage does not use force.

Instead, each gentle stroke focuses on the acupoints, using their specific patented Méthode Jeanne Piaubert massage technique to thoroughly drain the lymph nodes on the face, décolleté and neck.

Her fingers focused on areas that needed more attention, including my eyebags and cheeks.

The final step was a leave on hydration mask, which would relax the skin, boost blood circulation and help me revitalise my youthful complexion.”

Verdict: “ The results of this treatment were quite immediate. My skin had a nice glow, and the pimples were less red and angry.

The most obvious improvement had to be my eye area — the eye bags were less prominent. My skin also felt supple to the touch!”
