Knowing what’s right for you
Often, when you go to the beauty salon, you either pick the best sounding treatment off the menu or your beauty therapist tells you what skin type you have. The therapist very much depends on what you tell her you want and what she sees. So if you have a dry skin, she’ll pick a treatment off the menu for ‘dry skin’ and a range of products for the same. Just like picking a pizza from a menu, you’ll get the same pizza everyone else gets.
But what if I told you that most people are walking around thinking they’re a certain ‘skin type’, and they’re not that type at all?
Here at Soothe, I delve much deeper. I investigate WHY a person might have dry skin or inflammation and treat the skin in such a way that the causes of dry skin are eliminated.
My specially designed advanced analysis digs deep into the lifestyle of the client and focuses on the many intrinsic and extrinsic influences on the skin. From there I create a facial therapy to treat root causes of issues. Ultimately this leads to the repair and restoration of the skin’s barrier function, which leads to a much happier and healthier skin.
This is important because a happy and heathy skin promotes youthfulness and prevents unnecessary, premature ageing.
I’m obsessive about moisturisation and hydration. I teach my clients about the importance of dermal hydration during their Advanced Skin Care Reviews. But dermal hydration isn’t just about slapping on any old cream. It’s more complicated than that, and today, creams are more sophisticated. Good quality creams have functions that can transform the skin’s appearance and alter the way it behaves for the better (and worse if you haven’t selected the right one for your skin’s needs – see my blog on How to choose the right cream coming soon). However, it’s a daunting process if you don’t know what you’re looking for. That’s where I can help.
My knowledge in the science of skin enables me to see skin on a cellular/molecular level.
Many things influence the cell’s health and the fact that I can see what’s happening to your skin in my mind’s eye puts me in a good position to transform the way your skin behaves and looks for the better.
Empowering you to make better choices about your skincare
Facials to me aren’t just about providing a beautiful, luxurious experience. It’s about helping you feel better about yourself and boosting your confidence. It’s also about empowering you to make better choices about your skincare and regime so that you’re no longer reliant on sales patter from people who don’t really understand the skin beyond what they see on the surface. I can’t tell you how many times I have received bad advice in the past, but I knew not to act on it and what worrying is that most people rely on the information they’re given.
