Facial

Holistic Facials

I originally trained in holistic facials during my 2-year aromatherapy diploma.  Using plant-based products such as hydrolats, natural mask for calming the skin and drawing out impurities and essential oils this helps to keep your skin feeling at its best.  The structure of a holistic facial is as follows:

Initial Consultation

Cleanse

Using water-based natural cleansers your face is cleansed.  This helps to flush out impurities as well as the build up of make up products.

Face Mask

This will be selected for your skin type and will either be a traditional clay mask or a gel or cream.

Tone

Using natural hydrolat toner can help to calm the skin and complete the cleanse.

Facial Massage

Using a carrier oil selected for your skin type you will receive a gentle face massage designed to work the muscles of the face and relieve any tension.

What happens in a session?
Preparation
  • I will wait outside the room while you get onto the couch, and cover your upper body with a clean towel.  

  • You will be asked to place your belongings such as jewellery in a box during the treatment

During
  • It is important for me to receive feedback during the treatment such as if you are warm and comfortable enough

  • I use products that may end up in your hair. Please do not book a hair appointment before your holistic facial as it will get messy.

At the end of the treatment you will be informed of aftercare which may also include:

  • Facial muscle  exercises

  • Natural skincare products that may help you.

  • Recommendations for lifestyle changes.

You may wish to bring a hair comb or brush to neaten your hair afterwards.   You will leave the clinic bare-faced and it is best not to wear makeup for several hours to allow the skincare to work effectively.

FAQs

  • For best results it is more effective to receive consecutive  treatments over several weeks.
