Organic Facials – A Fast Way to Healthy Skin

Our skin is our first line of defence against the outside world. The skin on our face experiences daily assault – pollution, UV RAYS, hot water, chlorine, make-up, chemicals and dust. The accumulation of these substances and rays strip and impair the barrier of our skin, exacerbating skin conditions and accelerating our ageing process.  

The protective barrier of our skin is called the Stratum Corneum. There is a great body of evidence emerging that if we take care of the Stratum Corneum, feeding it biomimetic (skin compatible) ingredients, the rest of the skin will take care of itself.

When the barrier of the skin is compromised we begin to see conditions such as:

  • Dry Skin
  • Sensitive or Sensitised Skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Mature and ageing skin

Facials play an integral part in rebuilding the skin’s barrier system and accelerating the skin’s natural ability to repair and regenerate. 

5 Reasons to Get a Naturopathic Facial

1. Professional Skin Analysis

In a facial, you will receive a proper skin analysis where we can assess and provide insight into your skin’s past and present. We take into account any existing conditions that may be damaging your skin health including underlying medical conditions, nutritional deficiencies; infections; hormonal imbalances; previous sun exposure and daily skin care routine. We create a targeted prescription and facial which is tailored to achieve the best results for your skin health.

 2. Deep Cleanse

A deep cleanse using steam removes accumulated waste sitting on the surface and in the pores of the skin that daily cleansing at home doesn’t reach.  We reveal a healthier, cleaner environment for skin cells to thrive.

3. Lymphatic Facial Massage

Lymphatic Facial massage stimulates the musculature of the lymphatic vessels and promotes the elimination of waste products, toxins and excess fluid (puffiness) from the tissues.

4. Application of Masks

Masks are filled with actives - vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, plant extracts and other skin boosting ingredients which will boost the skin’s hydration levels, soften lines and initiate the repair of the skin’s barrier system. They act as food for the skin. 

5. It feels good.  Facials relieve stress, balance your mind, boost your mood and uplift your sense.
