Luxury Natural Face Treatment

If you would like your skin to feel soft and retain its youthful look, but suffer from a dry or oily complexion. Book a few treatments now! There is an oil and flower water  suitable for all skin types. None of the products contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate and are all Paraben free.

Bring to mind a person you know, you most likely visualise their face. It is estimated that 95% of people evaluate another person by their face. Our faces tell a story about us – our lifestyle, diets, emotions, and personality. Holding stress, anxiety, negative emotions, having poor diet or lack of exercise can alter a persons appearance dramatically.A Natural Facial treatment consists of:

Cleansing the face and neck with a gentle plant base cream (aloe vera and jojoba oil).
Toning with aromatic water see decriptions below.
Using a warm compress to open the pores and aid absorption of oils into the skin.
Application of a natural face mask to draw out impurities.
Massage of the face, neck and scalp with carrier oils selected to suit the client’s skin type. To read more about Snail Gel which I also offer as a face mask, face serum and moisturising gel as part of a treatment

The word “cosmetics” is derived from the Greek word meaning “cosmos”. Ancients Greeks and Egyptians considered that to be physically beautiful was to be in harmony with the universe. To be in harmony with the universe, we need to be in harmony with nature.

The body responds to natural substances in a different way to synthetic substances. The body and natural substances recognise their common primal evolution. Like a tree, we were borne out of matter – nature’s earth. Natural substances reinforce the cosmos within you, where as synthetic substances can create a ‘chaotic’ you.
