I first met Karen Lockyer, MUA and founder of Graceful Discraceful more than a few years ago when I was working as a photographic stylist.
As I have gathered quite a few years myself I have been enjoying Karens @gracefuldiscraceful insta feed and welcomed the chance to join in an online facial workout session.
I wasn’t sure what to expect of the online session and if I would be able to follow what was going on. I needn’t have worried as Karens instructions were super clear and easy to follow.
An information and fact-packed prep sheet was provided alongside the simple health questionaire Although no-one knew each other the atmosphere of the group was fun, with great questions being asked and some giggles. It would be a fab experience to do with a group of friends while we are still all locked down …. and even when we aren’t!
There were some enlightening tips to be gleaned during the workshop which was in two parts – facial massage and facial excercises (cue the giggles)
I was especially interested in the lymphatic drainage aspect of the massage section as I had heard of this but didn’t know where the ‘nodes’ were exactly. I do now and have been keeping the practice going.
Also brilliant for me was a demonstration of using a jade roller …. one of those things you buy that sits in a cupboard (or is that just me?) but now I know what to do with it.
Karens approach is simple and natural and in the age of electronic beauty ‘tools’ really refreshing to learn some useful basic hacks that don’t entail spending lots of cash… and can help slow the aging process (oh yes please!)
If you want a get together with your friends I can certainly recommend this and at only £20 per person it’s really good value for money and a great addition to your skincare routine.
I’m off now for some scissor action and a bit of tapping and slapping!
