Best Face Forward: The Top London Facials 2020

SEPTEMBER 23, 2020

Ada’s bespoke facial joins just twelve other treatments in Vanity Fair’s list.

Bespoke facial with Ada Ooi, founder of 001 Skincare London

Visiting Ada Ooi, facialist and acupuncturist to the stars, in her smart, ultra-convenient Marylebone townhouse is more like a spiritual experience than a straightforward facial. Plenty of practitioners claim to be “holistic” in their approach, but Ada genuinely is, asking just the right amount of gentle questions about your lifestyle, diet and emotions, as well as your skin concerns.

Really though, this woman can tell more about your overall wellness by looking at your tongue than asking a hundred questions. Assessment complete, she begins a completely bespoke treatment, which may include acupuncture (stimulation techniques can be subbed in for the needle-phobic), kind-to-skin extractions, and a host of gorgeous oil-based products from Ada’s brand, 001 skin.

Just when you thought she couldn’t get any better, she uses a series of tools and techniques—including iced rollers and gua sha—to achieve dramatic, immediate lifting and sculpting through lymphatic drainage.

She gave me a jawline I never knew I didn’t have, and I left feeling lighter, healthier and happier than I could have imagined. Magic.
