Suffer in the name of BEAUTY

Yesterday I got a facial done. And it was the most painful thing I've done since I was 6 years old and my tonsils and adenoids were removed without anaesthetic. Don't think I am a moaner, because (I promise) I cried of pain.

After two hours, I left the beauty center with a puffed up face and thinking about the results. The beautician said in two days my face will look flawless, but even with that I don't know if I should follow her recommendation and come back in two months.

What about you? Do you suffer in the name of beauty?

in France we have a proverb who say "il faut souffrir pour etre belle" ; maybe it's "you have to suffer for be beautiful" in english dont know ???!!!

^Yeah something like that.

only my budget. but even that, within reason. part of who i am is about being comfortable, and that's why i'm true to myself in my style, my choices, my life, and that includes no pain. not for shoes, tight clothes, facials, nothing. if that means, by french standards, i'm not beautiful, i don't know. ;)

Gilda: the thing is that I got facials done before, but never one so painful.

Ton site internet a trop d'allure ...! J'adore ! Mais, s'il te plait, peux tu faire en sorte que la musique soit moins forte quand on se connecte sur ton site??!! Merci beaucoup et bonne continuation !
Please may-you do the music on your site (when we get connected) less louder. My english is very bad tonight.... Hope you will understand me.

^It's fine, I understand French. But I can't control the volume of music. I am so sorry.

was it ur first facial¿?

i have a facial done every month, and of course it kinda hurts, u get used to it; but if ur facial hurt way too much u should probably try having it done somewhere else, it should not hurt THAT much.

hope everythig goes well.i suffer every month when waxing! IL FAUT SOUFFRIR POUR ETRE BELLE et c est ca que je pense chaque fois!
p.s probably you shouldn't go back there. facials shouldn't hurt even if you have acne. you should try another beauty center next time, or you could go better to a dermatologist who does facials.

Facial is fantastic, the results are worth the suffering!

This sounds painful, I hope it was worth it...

I never understood how a facialist picking at blackheads could make someone look better than a DIY Biore nose strip.

that is the strangest thing because when i've had facials, they've been bliss and i haven felt so good (actually apart from the part where she decided to have a go at a black head on my face....but we'll omit that part) but now that i think of it, my mum went and had one awhile ago, and told me she absolutely broke out worse than she has in years straight after it! so, they claim they're for the good of your skin, but it all seems a little bit fishy doesnt it?
