A Comprehensive Skin Analysis
A clear picture of the current state of your skin, from which treatment can be made by our skin therapist is established. In almost all cases, skin analysis allows our skin therapists to take control of their skin care in the right way, and by detecting any possible issues early, thus picking up underlying conditions you might not have known you had, such as broken capillaries and pigmentation. In addition, your skin type will also be determined. This is an important part of assessing whether or not your skin care regime is appropriate for you.
Professional Gentle Exfoliation
This is an extremely effective peeler designed to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells and excess sebum or oil deposits… refining, brightening and smoothing the complexion, and possesses the unique ability to calm and exfoliate the skin at the same time. We believe harsh scrubs and peels should be avoided on the face as they can scratch the skin and cause inflammation, aggravate fragile capillaries, and sensitise the skin. The soft exfoliant is based on oat flour, carob gum and beeswax to soothe and maintain softness after exfoliation and is gentle enough for delicate skin, leaving the texture refined, lightened and smoothed.

What is sensitive skin, and do I have it? No other skin condition is more misunderstood than sensitive skin. In fact, almost 90% of the population reports having sensitive skin at one time or another! To understand whether you have sensitive skin, you first have to understand what causes it.
Sensitive skin is a genetically inherited condition that predominantly affects very fair-skinned individuals, usually of Northern European ancestry. Someone with truly sensitive skin is highly prone to blushing, has a very fine complexion, and may experience bad hay fever, allergies, or asthma.
What most people suffer from is in fact sensitised skin. Rather than a result of genetics, sensitised skin is a reflection of your environment, lifestyle, and physiology. Pollution, stress, hormonal imbalance, cosmetic allergies, alcohol, a poor diet, and over-exfoliation can all trigger the sensitised skin condition.
The good news is that sensitised skin can be treated. The bad news is that left untreated, the skin’s response can actually result in permanent cellular damage, which can lead to premature ageing.
How can I avoid trigger factors?
A few lifestyle modifications can usually solve most people’s skin sensitisation. Maintaining the skin’s barrier function is vital. So remember to always apply your protective moisturiser after cleansing, and whenever your skin feels tight or dry. Apply the serum, making it the ideal addition to your skincare regimen to optimise the water level of your skin. Also, always avoid over-exfoliating your skin. Remember, more exfoliation is not necessarily better! If you notice redness or tightness that lasts more than a few hours, you should discontinue the use of your exfoliant for a few days.
Our beloved sun…Sun protection is also critical because sensitised skin is even more vulnerable to UV damage. Apply a chemical-free sun shield that was developed specifically for sensitised skin. Lastly, avoiding trigger factors such as hot drinks, spicy foods. MSG, alcohol, caffeine, and cigarettes can help your skin recover and rebuild its normal resistance.
