Young Ldn – a buzzy little getaway in the heart of London
Living in the city can certainly take its toll—on your energy, skin and general well-being.
Young LDN in Notting Hill has done the rounds on social media—from their Hair of the Dog hangover therapy facial to their bespoke acne treatments. From what I could tell, this buzzy destination was THE salon in London and it’s easy to see why as the place offers a TON of treatments. From facials to manicures and pedicures to face-peels to make-up stations…You can even get those (more regretful) tattoos removed downstairs in their Lab.
I went in to experience one of Young LDN’s signature facials: ‘The 60’. This non-surgical lift promises to sculpt, light and tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance. Like the name, this 60-minute facial uses 3 in 1 radio frequency, vacuum suction and chromotherapy technology to stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production.
As soon as I came in Abbey—my lovely therapist for the day who has worked in skincare for over 15 years— greeted me and led me over to the Facial Bar where I was settled into one of the plush chairs and immediately given a hot-water bottle and bundled up in a warm, fuzzy blanket.
As my skin was cleansed with some gorgeous smelling products—like the lime and caviar enzymatic mask—Abbey walked me through the whole process. I was particularly surprised by how soothing the vacuum suction part of the treatment was as radiofrequency was used to help stimulate collagen and elastin production. By the end of the facial, I was left with smooth, glowing skin and a visibly brightened complexion—and after a hectic few days covering Fashion Week, this is exactly the kind of thing my skin needed.
Unlike other salons, Young LDN stands out for championing Gen-Z and Millennials. Every corner of the studio is dedicated to the youth with manicure bars fitted with their own iPads, so you can catch-up on your Netflix shows whilst getting your nails painted. And there are tons of cute backdrops and settings, which are perfect to take tons of photos of your newly-did nails or fresh, glowing skin. And believe me, I took advantage of this.
Young LDN is a buzzy little getaway in the heart of London and is the perfect place to escape and unwind from the madness of the city.
