Facials and Skin Treatments
Organic, probiotic and customised skincare products and indulgent facials are available. Regular facials allow your skin to efficiently detoxify your body. Your skin is also your first line of defence against pathogenic bacteria and also has its own microbiome. Disruptions to this microbiome lead to many skin conditions such as acne, ageing, and irritation. I recommend organic skincare products as synthetic products contribute to ageing, redness, irritation and breakouts. They can also exaggerate skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and pigmentation. Natural products work with your body to support healthy skin and naturally contain antioxidants, flavonoids, and other anti-inflammatories, anti-ageing constituents.
Enjoy a soothing, revitalising experience, to relax your mind, body, and spirit.
Esse Skincare: Probiotic, Organic & Natural
Esse skincare was the first skincare to include live probiotics. Probiotics are microbes that have health benefits. Each one of us has our own complex ecosystem. In fact, there are more microbes in your body than there are in human cells. Microbes help protect your skin from pathogens and helps maintain an effective barrier to the outside world. Skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, dermatitis, and eczema are all largely a result of a disruption to the skin’s barrier. Esse has developed products that help to optimise the balance of good and bad bacteria on your skin to slow ageing, and repair damage to your skin. Esse does use mild preservatives and gentle surfactants that are researched and approved by the major global organic standards certifiers Ecocert and Cosmos as safe. Each product in the Esse range has a different level of probiotics in them to address different skin conditions. Head to my online store to check out some of their range.
For certain specific cases, I prefer to make custom creams, ointments and tonics specifically mixed for your individual needs. Sourcing quality ingredients, handmade skincare can be cheaper and even more effective at getting a specific result. I have seen this most effective for those suffering from severe acne, psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis. Customising your skincare allows me to use the naturopathic holistic principles and current research in herbal medicine to create an individualised product, with clinically effective results.
