I joined SABC 3’s Expresso Show 5 months ago. What a thrill. Every morning, I get to be part of a show that inspires millions of South African TV viewers and sets the tone for the type of morning they go on to have.

This has been a really exciting time. I have moved from Johannesburg to on of the most beautiful cities in the world – Cape Town. While this is a hugely exciting time, it hasn’t been without it’s own set of challenges. For example, I have had to work really hard to adjust and acclimatize to new working hours. Being up and on the road by 5:00am everyday for the show has put my body and skin under some stress – presenting itself in major breakouts.

The Laser Beautique has been really good to me, understanding my skin’s needs and the pressure that it’s constantly under – little sleep and make up on my face every single day. They have been able to put together a range of packages, each one of them carried out by therapists I absolutely trust – because they really just get it and they know what I need to do all the time.

My favorite treatment there, the Prince Charming facial has changed my entire outlook on grooming and facials for men. This treatment provides the relaxing benefits of ultra-lite massage while Botox-like marine extracts diminish fine expression lines to give an instant lift. This facial will instantly get your skin glowing, revitalized and refueled. This, I have found minimizes my breakouts drastically and leaves my skin not only feeling good but looking very noticeably radiant.

My schedule is packed and I find myself in different environments all the time. Moving from studio for the LIVE broadcast early mornings till 9:00, often off to meetings for my brand consulting agency, shooting inserts on location to channel roadshows. Because of this, I have a much more intimate relationship with my skin and wellness and cannot turn to any other place for rescue, refinement and just general maintenance. I love my Laser Boutique girls!

PS: Thank you for always being keen for my after hours calls and texts when I want to find out about which cream to use 😉 haha!
