A facial includes different steps that all take care of your skin in different ways.
I use Tropic organic products as well as tools during the facials.
What we put on our face is as important as what we feed into our body. That's why I have chosen to use Tropic Skincare Products: they are 100% natural, vegan, cruelty-free, freshly made multi-award-winning products (To know more about more about the Tropic products, contact me or follow this link).
When you come for a facial, here is how it will unfold:
- We start with a consulation about your skin and we establish whether you have any allergy (nut allergy, sensitivities to essential oils for example).
- Your choice of facial, facial 1 (Cleansing, exoliating, facial masks, toning, eye care serum or moisturizer) or facial 2 (Cleansing, exoliating, facial masks, toning, eye care serum or moisturizer; facial 2 also includes a Japanese style massage to further stimulate the cells in your skin).
- End of session talk.
Facial 1 and Facial 2 provide you with a cocktail of scents through each step. Each product helps take care of your skin in a natural way.
I use 'Smoothing Cleanser', a luxurious balanced gentle cream cleanser. This product is free rom SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfates) and does not contain harsh soap. The cleanser is good for sensitive skin and anyone with acne, blemishes or irritated skin.
You will enjoy the uplifting scent of eucalyptus; it also contains rosemary, lemongrass and chamomile oils.
Should you have a nut allergy, I will use 'Elixir', a deeply nourishing oil, with the a marzipan scent.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin.
It is a way to rejuvenate your skin as it keeps your skin looking fresh. Exfoliating also helps decrease pore size, speeds up skin renewal process, which allows newer skin cells to replace the old ones. All in all exfoliating gives us a brighter and more radiant skin. We look better and feel better in ourselves which is very good and important to our well-being.
I use 'Face Smooth', which contains bamboo silica beads and ground rice, for a deep gentle exfoliation and to remove rough areas of dry skin. You will smell essential oils of sweet orange, lemon and lime.
I use two masks.
'Clear Skin Mask', a thick, smooth green clay mask for oily, blemish prone skin. I apply it on oily areas such as the T-zone (where we break up or there is extra sebum production). This mask has a healthy green-smell and contains rosemary and lime essential oils.
'Face Lift Mask', a clay based mask, to brighten and firm the skin. Your will enjoy the scents of frangipani and elderflower extracts.
I use 'Vitamin Toner', a refreshing product with vitamin C that helps balancing your skin tone.
Toning is an essential step to close the pores.
This product, with micro-dispersed oil, contains scents of rose water and cucumber.
I use the rejuvenating eye serum 'Eye Work' to brighten the skin, hydrates and nourish as well as to reduce puffiness around the eyes.
This serum smells of cucumber juice.
Depending on the time of year, your type of skin and your taste, I will use either a serum or a moisturizer.
'Super Greens' is a lightweight oil and boosts the skin's natural defences; it protects against pollution and environmental factors. This serum has a natural healthy smell of tamanu and leafy greens (kale) and also contains aromas from essential oils of blue tansy.
'Skin Feast' is a silky-smooth super hydrating and nourishing cream. It has a subtle scent of lavender, rose geranium and swee orange. Should you have a nut allergy, I will use 'Pure Lagoon', a lightweight serum with a refreshing scent of watermelon extract.
