THE 5 BEST SUMMER SKIN TREATMENTS ON SLOANE STREET

Whether you’re bound for the beach or staying in the city, the summer months are synonymous with sun-kissed skin, sojourns to warm-weather destinations, time spent in the sea and the scent of sun cream. It can also wreak havoc on your skin, with dehydration and exposure to the sun’s damaging rays resulting in dull complexions and unwanted pigmentation.

But you can get your glow back on Sloane Street, home to not only the world’s most luxurious fashion brands but also some of London’s best spa destinations, including Sarah Chapman Skinesis Clinic and Ushvani. So whether you’re getting prepped to jet off or in need of some damage control, here are our top 5 summer skin spa treatments on Sloane Street.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Clinic

SARAH CHAPMAN SKINESIS CLINIC | THE SKIN-GLOW LED LIGHT POD

For busy bees, this is a great pit stop for quick skin-saving treatments (20 mins, £40). In just 20 minutes the skin is thoroughly cleansed using signature massage techniques and Skinesis products prior to application of the LED light and all treatments finish with a sweep of Skin Insurance SPF 30. “We harness the power of anti-inflammatory red LED and near infrared light to combat sun exposure, heat and inflammation, whilst if you are suffering from breakouts due to sunscreen application and sweating, we will target the skin with anti-bacterial blue LED,” says Sarah Chapman.

For ultimate brightness, opt for the clinical Introductory Bespoke Facial, where a targeted skin peel to remove surface residue is combined with intense hydration to counteract effects of air conditioning, sun, heat, travel and antioxidants to fight free radical damage in the cells from UV (90 mins, £165)
