Fear not, no matter your skin type, there’s a facial treatment out there for you. So now we’re all clued up on our skin, we can get into the good stuff.

Oily Skin

Oily or acne prone skin can often be tricky to treat; easily aggravated by the wrong product, break-outs are usually not too far away. If this is you, a cleansing facial treatment could be the answer to your prayers! Oily skin needs to be deeply cleansed to unclog pores; removing dead skin cells, and revealing clearer and more youthful looking skin. Clay based treatments are a great way to do this as they naturally draw out bacteria from pores, and leave them visibly smaller. Detoxify your skin with a purifying facial treatment and be left with a fresh and shine free complexion.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is just crying out for some TLC; if it is not treated, skin can feel tight and lead to the development of fine lines. What better way to restore that very necessary moisture to your skin, than through a gentle hydrating facial treatment; promoting naturally glowing and radiant skin.

Normal Skin

The secret behind great skin is looking after it. A classic nourishing facial treatment can include cleansing, toning and protective coverage; helping to maintain a healthy and natural skin balance. Different strokes and pressures are applied to various areas, ensuring you can relax, and the treatment is tailored to your specific needs.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is likely to have areas of the face that are dry and oily. Balancing facial treatments protect your skins youthful properties, whilst encouraging a healthy blood flow to your skin surface. This means slower ageing, and softer skin, all whilst remaining blemish free.
