It’s time to come out of hibernation and get your skin in ship shape condition before the summer sun makes an appearance.
The winter season can play havoc with your skin, some people find that entering into the spring season their skin feels dry and flaky, lacklustre and even experience more sensitivity. The cold weather can strip your skin of it’s natural moisture and cell turnover can slow down due to environmental factors. You don’t have to change your entire skincare routine just because of the change of season , but if you have noticed some changes in your skin or you just want to boost the cell turnover and have smoother, brighter more luminous skin, you could benefit from a professional treatment and a finely balanced home care routine to prep your skin in time for the summer.

TOP 3 FACIAL TREATMENTS
Top 3 facial treatments to slough away, replenish and banish the winter skin signs.
OXYGEN ULTRASONIC CLEANSE AND OXYGEN MICRODERMABRASION
This facial is a true wake up call for the spring season. The pure Hypabaric Oxygen technology used throughout this treatment rejuvenates skin cells by penetrating deep into the lower layers of the skin. A professional ultrasonic glycolic cleanse, targeted oxygen microdermabrasion, deep acting Enzymes and a cocktail of highly concentrated vitamins and hyaluronic acid are infused into lower layers of your skin, leaving your skin feeling decongested, fresh, bright and revived.
A thorough but gentle exfoliation and anti-inflammatory facial. This facial is for sensitive or thin skin, enzyme exfoliants can be gentler than other exfoliating methods like scrubs and microdermabrasion. The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead skin cells containing keratin protein. The enzymes work by specifically breaking down the keratin protein, resulting in smoother skin. This facial will leave your skin feeling smoother, nourished and brighter.
Enzymes can protect against damage from sun, environmental pollutants and even acne. A great all round facial.
COLLAGEN & VITAMIN C FACIAL
This is an intense facial packed with high grade vitamins and nutrients for all who are seeking to prevent and repair their skin from ageing, sun damage, discolouration and acne scarring. It boosts the skin’s own collagen integrity, to make it appear plumper, smoother, more supple, and more youthful. Vitamin C plays a pivotal role in the increase of production of collagen so does chemical exfoliants such as Alphahydroxy acids which promotes the synthesis of new healthy collagen. This facial starts with a pre-peel cleanse, followed by a 20%/30%/50% unbuffered, un-neutralized low PH Glycolic Peel. A calming Seaweed mask is then applied, rich in protein, flush with essential amino acids. Your facial is finished off with a Collagen boosting serum and an AHA hydration reviving facial massage.
Great for restoring the skins elasticity, nourishing and fortifying activating the body’s own collagen generation.
