As well as a £145 ‘triple oxygen treatment’, Miss Zellweger endures a 60 minute ‘microdermabuffing’ session, described by practitioners as ‘sand-blasting for the face’.
‘Renee may have perfect skin now but it hasn’t always been that way,’ said a source close to the star.
‘She discovered the triple oxygen facial a couple of years ago and has been a convert ever since.
‘They are by no means the most relaxing of treatments – Renee has to lie supine for two hours while gas is sprayed onto her face and she is wrapped in cling film – but there is a lot of science behind them to suggest that they work. And, of course, Renee is convinced that they do.
‘She really does have an even, baby-soft complexion nowadays and she looked absolutely amazing when she stepped out on the red carpet just 24 hours after her last treatment.’
Okay, so speaking of facials…Robyn (my sister) and I went into Portland last night for one. She’s getting married on Saturday, and we decided to treat ourselves to a facial. Holy crap – it was freaking amazing. It was a 2 HOUR treatment. It hurt so bad it was almost good. She cleaned out every pore (at times with a needle – OUCH)…ahhh, it felt so refreshing. I can’t stop feeling my face today.
I was on this heated bed, with these thick covers over me. She massaged my feet, arms, hands…. I had 2 different exfoliants – and a face mask. It was so good. At the end they leave you alone for like 20 minutes with the face mask on…and I totally fell asleep. It was the best $100 I’ve ever spent.
