I've always associated funky and eclectic Hawaiian wear with Avanti Hawaiian Shirts. Perfectly melding casual past and present Island wear, the brand has been around for as long as I can remember. Lucky for me, I was able to partner with this family owned and operated fashion house to highlight a couple of my favorite pieces this season!
I also can't fail to mention, the source of my sudden boost of confidence this time around. I've been fortunate enough to partner with the Honolulu Med Spa to bring my readers not only awesome discounts and promotions, but to highlight their incredible services as well. Prior to this shoot, I was able to receive my very first HydraFacial, which from here on out I will highly recommend to anyone and everyone that is looking to take care of themselves.
I have weird combination skin, which means I have areas that shine with oil and others that remain parched and dry. Why they can't just help each other and even out is beyond me, but I'm always struggling with different products and regimens to find a solution. When I was first proposed the HydraFacial by my assigned esthetician, I had no idea what to expect except for some light steam and cucumbers on my eyes. However, it is far from that!
After a heavenly steam, the liquid microdermabrasion treatment begins as a tiny vacuum like brush rakes, for lack of a better word, over your skin to get the job done. However, with the dual suction and nourishment, you can literally feel your skin thanking you. For something so soothing and relaxing, it's hard to believe that the treatment is removing all of your dead skin cells and impurities while simultaneously providing your new skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing serums. With results that assist with the reduction in wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and oily skin, I can honestly say that I am hooked!
Now that I've found a new addiction that is unbelievably so indulgent, I want nothing better than to share it with all of you. If you're looking to book any treatments with the Honolulu Med Spa, don't forget to let them know that you love Made In Chína and we go way back, and you'll get yourself a nice little discount.
Let me know how your treatment goes and I'll be sure to do the same!
