My Reading Room

We all know that vegetables are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that feed and nourish the body. According to Korean skincare scientists, greens – peas in particular – can also benefit your skin.

Using Korean stem cell technology in a unique facial, Mirage Aesthetic’s Korea Stem Cell Skin Booster Treatment ($380 for 75min) is said to repair damaged cells and improve elasticity.

As it forms a protective layer on the skin with vegetable placenta and stem cell activators derived from peas, and used in a mask, serum and moisturiser, this treatment is said to transform dry and rough skin, so it is radiant and looks more youthful for longer.

The facial also includes calming rituals, double cleansing, a scrub, steaming and sunblock that leaves skin soft, glowing and protected.

If your skin is in good shape but doesn’t glow like you want it to, there’s also the Korea BB Glow Laser Treatment. A signature facial for Mirage Aesthetic, it uses laser therapy to treat redness, open pores, unevenness, and zits.

It is also said to stimulate collagen growth, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and making skin look fresh as well as more radiant.
