Facials

Introduction

I believe we all deserve health and vitality and this should reflect through our skin and hair. You may notice I choose not to use products with Parabens (Artificial Preservatives), this is because I have discovered through my own endeavors for my family's health that most personal care and cosmetics are laden with many chemicals, that on closer inspection we would not want to absorb into our bodies to build up over a lifetime.

Neals Yard Organic products are among the purest and most effective formulations I have found and not only that they have sensational aromas and work wonders on stressed or lack lustre skin.

All Neals Yard Products are made in Britain by a family run company who are passionate about fair trade and our earths environment they also champion many important causes. Want to know more? Check out more information about Neals Yard at Azara Therapies Neals Yard Online Shop, their newsletters are full of healthy tips for many ailments.

I recommend everyone to start with a Neals Yard Nature Active Hot Stone Facial so I can discover your skins personality Then if needed I will recommend other treatments from either Piori or Dermaquest Peels. These are Cosmeceutical Grade formulations which provide solutions for Premature Ageing, Pigmentation, Rosacea and Acne. Please refer to the 'Cosmeceutical' page for a deeper understanding on the benefits of this popular and effective treatment range and read on to understand why Peels are a very effective way to manage many skin conditions previously difficult to treat. 

I also advocate seeing a Nutritionist to treat expressions of internal imbalance which manifest through skin   disorders more often than not. I recommend Michele Nowell at LivePure.

Nature Active Neals Yard Facial

Fabulous for all skins and those wanting a more Organic Experience. Neals Yard products do give the most amazing glow to all skins. We can customise using steam/towels, micro currents, massage, reflexology, you name it the choice is yours.

I combine my knowledge of traditional Chinese diagnostic  Face Reading techniques to inform us of which Neals Yard products and herbal tea infusions will help your skin and wellbeing most. You can expect a truly luxurious treatment combining the Element of Heat in the form of steam towels, Hot or Cold Stones (Cold are amazing for headaches and eye strain and reducing puffiness under the eyes) and Steam if preferred! Massage will be Oriental Accupressure or Manual Lymph Drainage if congestion is an issue combined with Hot Stones where a sore neck and shoulder muscles are troubling you. 

As you can see this treatment is as unique as your skins needs and will be created freshly for you at each susequent visit depending on the season and your equilibrium.

This treatment is an ideal place to start if you have not tried my treatments before and is also a nurturing antidote to escape for an hour or more to soak up some devine aromas and leave with radiant skin and a feeling revived.

Peels

Why have a Skin Peel?

  • Minimise fine lines and wrinkles
  • Wipe away blemishes and reduce open pores
  • Smooth uneven skin texture
  • Rejuvenate and refresh your complexion
  • Tailored to your skin type


What are Skin Peels?

Skin Peels help to treat the following concerns: ageing skin, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots/pigmentation, skin imperfections, open pores, congested skin, skin resurfacing, acne scarring, rosacea and redness.

Skin Peels resurface the skin improving texture and smoothness using highly effective ingredients, tailored to your specific requirements on a level that suits you, from mild to more advanced. By removing dull, dead cells from the skin surface, open pores, blemishes and fine lines are all immediately reduced.

The effects of skin peels are superior to facials - you'll see an instant improvement and long lasting benefit from the skin peel. We have a range of skin peels from the entry level Priori AHA Peel, to intermediate level DermaQuest Peel.

Dependent on the level of peel you have been prescribed; your skin will need to be prepped prior to treatment to get optimum results. Speak to your practitioner who will recommend the right products for your skin.

Ingredients Used?

Skin Peels use fruit acids such as Lactic, Mandelic, Glycolic and Salacylic acid which are all from natural derivatives.

Specific fruit acids treat certain skin conditions by tailoring the skin peels to your skin requirements i.e. Salicylic acid controls excessive oil production, un-blocks pores & congestion and reduces the bacterial inflammation, Lactic is ultra hydrating.

What Does The Treatment Include?

A skin peel starts with a thorough skin analysis to identify the target concerns and treatment plan best suited to your skins best outcome.

The skin is then cleansed and prep solution is applied, ready for the ingredients within the peel to penetrate the lower skin layers. The specific skin peel is then applied (depending on skin needs i.e. acneic skin, dehydrated skin etc), followed by a skin mask. The treatment can take up to 45mins depending on the severity of the skin needs and the type of peel.

The final steps include after care products being applied such as serums and an SPF to protect the skin from UVA & UVB rays. Following peels are then recommended once every 2 weeks for 4 weeks.

How Does The Treatment Work?

The fruit acids in the peel solution penetrate into the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis. This is because the solution is made of up molecule size particles, which makes penetration easier.

The fruit acids then speed up the cell turnover which refreshes and promotes healthier, plumper skin cells. The action rejuvenates the skin. In addition the acids will help to un-clog pores, reduce inflammation and regulate excessive oil production.

What Results Should I Expect?

  • Smooth texture to the surface of the skin
  • Reduction in break outs/ blemishes
  • Rejuvenated & hydrated skin
  • Improvement of skin strength & general condition
  • Reduction of the signs of ageing

General Information About Skin Peels

  • There is no long term damage to the skin from peels.
  • The sensation of skin peels will vary from person to person – this is due to skin tolerance, skin condition, severity of a skin complaint, strength of the peel, home care products
  • In the main common feelings from skin peels are; tingling, warmth and tightness. These all indicate the active ingredients are penetrating the lower layers of the skin and are getting to work
