As we transition into Nelson’s warmer months, you’ll likely notice a significant change in your skin. You may be left with dry and lipid impaired skin, which is the main cause of sensitive skin. Or you may just need to ensure your skin is in optimal health to tolerate the environmental factors this season will send your way. Pollen and high UV exposure require a game plan! So, in this week’s article, we’re talking spring facials.
Prepare for the Season with one of our Recommended Spring Facials:
Generally, at this time of year, we recommend an antioxidant and moisture-rich facial to give your skin a seasonal boost. But our skin therapists can make facial recommendations specific to you and your skin. You are welcome to call into the Spa for advice before booking. In the meantime here are three Spring facials to consider.
The O2 Facial:
A long-standing favourite, this facial is a must if your skin feels particularly dehydrated from winter. It incorporates hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants and hyaluronic acid for an instant, visible boost of hydration and luminosity. This is also perfect before special social occasions. So, it’s a great one to consider as the festive period gets closer.
The Sothys Soothing Facial:
If your skin feels sensitive or irritated as spring starts, the Sothys Soothing facial is a perfect solution! This is an ultra-gentle soothing treatment that incorporates thermal spa water’s natural occurring soothing and cooling properties to calm even the most sensitive of skins.
The Express Facial:
Short on time but still want the benefits of a professional facial treatment? Our Express Facial covers all the basics. Your therapist will customise this treatment, especially for you. They will select from our advanced professional skincare products, based purely on your needs at the time of treatment.
Regular Maintenance is a Must:
If you are committed to looking after your skin and prevent premature ageing. Or if you need to treat a specific skin concern, then you will see the best results with monthly facials. Spring and summer can be harsh on the skin as pollutants are higher, as is UV exposure. You’ll also notice more sebaceous activity as your body temperature heats up. Monthly facials will help keep you feeling confident as you go make-up free over summer!
Let’s Take it Home:
When people ask us about the importance of home skincare following a facial, we like to use a little analogy.
You wouldn’t expect weight loss results from one personal training session a month, with no other exercise, would you? You know that to get results you have to put in the work every day, even when you do not see your PT!
Similarly, home skincare is vital if you’re going to get the best results from your professional spring facial. What you apply every single day to your skin is going to make the biggest difference! Using high-quality products on your skin ensures healthy cell turnover, antioxidant protection, optimal barrier function and keeps the build-up of dead, dry skin on the surface; this affects both the skins appearance and the penetration of your products.
3 Reasons to Book your Facial at Woman in Nelson:
Finally, we thought we’d wrap up with three reasons to book your Spring facial at Woman in Nelson.
We love the skin! We have studied it and worked extensively on it for years! We want you to be happy in the skin you are in, so you can ask us anything 😊. We are always more than happy to offer guidance on the treatments and home care products that will help you achieve your skin goals!
As a professional spa we have access to products that contain much higher percentages of active ingredients than those available over the counter at your local chemist or supermarket. Active ingredients are the ones that get deep down into the living tissue of your skin and communicate with the cells to make real changes within the structure of the skin.
As if we would forget this… Life is busier and more stressful than ever! It is so important to take time out for yourself, even if you can only manage an hour. We specialise in a truly relaxing experience here at Woman in Nelson and pride ourselves on creating a little oasis of peace away from all the stresses of day to day life.
