The skin being the largest organ on the body means it needs a lot of care. We all use moisturizer or body creams for our arms and legs but we neglect our face. The face takes a few more steps to ensure a radiant glow for many years. You may already have a skin care routine at home, but you could be using the incorrect products for your skin type. which is causing more harm than good.

Why Regular Facials?

Let's talk about the importance of skin care

and why you need it in your everyday life.


We are born with soft, smooth, hydrated skin. Over time harsh elements in the environment wear on us making our skin dry, rough and wrinkled.

With good skin care routine you don't have to look your age. With age our skin normally sags and wrinkles. But, if you take care of your skin with regular facials and a good skin care regimen you can slow down the harmful effects of time.

Basic Facials include

  • Cleansing: removes makeup, dirt and oil from the skin that can help prevent acne and pimples
  • Skin assesment: time for the esthetician to determine your proper skin type
  • Toner: adds needed hydration to your skin and also bring the pH of your skin back to balance
  • Exfoliation (manual or chemical): removes  dead skin cells on the outermost layer of the skin
  • Massage: facial massage stimulates blood flow for increased circulation, is deeply relaxing, relieves tension, and allows the skin to absorb the product better
  • Mask: depending on your skin type the proper mask with; pull impurities out of the skin, add hydration, tighten and tone the skin, and induce anti-aging 
  • Moisturizer: balances oil, plump skin and deeply hydrates dry skin


​A staggering amount of pollution, dirt, grime, and dead skin accumulates on the face. This build up is an unavoidable fact of life. We can do the best we can to keep the skin clean, but it is not always enough. ​Your face is the one area of your body that is almost always exposed to the outside elements including sun, wind and cold. To keep your skin healthy and youthful, you need to take extra precaution. Regular facials can help slow down the signs of time by relaxing the muscles and toning the skin. Your skin regenerates itself every 30 days so we recommend a facial once a month. You want to maintain a fresh appearance with toned, hydrated, healthy skin.

Combination skin type
A combination skin type can be dry or normal in some areas, and oily in others, such as the T-zone. The T-zone is the nose, forehead, and chin area. A common skin type, combination skin may benefit from slightly different types of skin care in different areas.

  • Overly dilated pores
  • Blackheads
  • Shiny skin


This type of skin results from genetic or hormonal factors that cause an imbalance in how much and where lipids are produced. It can also vary, depending on the weather.

age defying skin care

At Home Care is something that is not the same for each person. Everyone's skin is uniquely different. This is where it is good to talk to one of our estheticians so that they can do a proper skin analyse and prescribe the right products for you to take home. 
Beauty doesn't happen overnight
Good skin care only works if you stick to it and stay consistent. A healthy diet is beneficial in improving the elasticity of the skin as well as controlling breakouts. Drink lots and lots of water, your body thrives on water. Water helps cleanse your pores from the inside out. It re-hydrates the skin and keeps it moist longer.
