What is a Holistic Facial?

What are Holistic Facials, and what is the importance of Natural Skincare?

Have you noticed ‘Natural” Skincare has been popping up everywhere over the last few years? Have you wondered what exactly is Natural Skincare is, and how is it can benefit you?

What is natural skincare? 

Natural Skincare is skin-care using ingredients found in nature, without the use of synthetic chemicals that can be harmful to our health. 

Why is it important to use Natural Skincare? 

Certain chemicals found in skin-care can be linked to health problems like hormone disruption, organ toxicity, cancer, and allergies to name a few. Chemicals like parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and fragrance can also cause skin irritation.

Our skin is our biggest organ and what we put onto our skin is just as important as what we put into our bodies.  

Benefits of Natural Skincare

  • Eco-friendly 
  • No skin irritation
  • No harsh smells 
  • Helps maintain skin health
  • Promotes overall well-being

In our Holistic Facial, we use Essentials by Nature products, which are locally made in small batches. These products are made out of essential oils and other plant-based, all-natural ingredients. All of their products are free of chemicals, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrance, sulphates, and formaldehyde. 

What is a Holistic Facial?

A holistic facial uses natural skincare and not only focuses on the health of the skin externally, but the holistic facialist will take a look at what’s going on internally. Focusing on such things as diet, stress, exercise, sleep, and any allergies or sensitivities.  Seeing the skin connected to the person as a whole. 

Our skin says a lot about our overall health and what is going on internally. Most skin issues are a direct reflection of what’s going on inside the body. A holistic facialist will take all of this into consideration while performing your facial and making recommendations after.
