What is a Holistic Facial?
A Holistic Facial contains the same principles as a regular Facial in that a routine of cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and the application of a facial mask and moisturising is followed. Yet it takes a holistic approach concentrating on the person as a whole and not just what skin type that person has.
For example an individual may choose to have a facial because they have wrinkles; these may be due to a number of influences such as age, stress, dehydration and so on. After an in depth confidential consultation, the Therapist will choose products, carrier oils and essential oils individual to that person’s skin type and needs. For example, for a deeply relaxing facial massage to address anxiety and stress with someone with mature dry skin; a blend of Sweet Almond oil, Avocado oil (great for mature dry skin) and Frankincense essential oil (great for reducing anxiety and stress and great for sensitive skin) may be chosen for the face massage, and The Tropic Warming Mineral Mask with Palma Rosa Essential Oil (which is nourishing and restorative) chosen for the Face mask. Or for an uplifting face massage for someone with dry sensitive skin, Sweet Almond oil may be mixed with Evening Primrose oil (great for dry sensitive skin) and Geranium essential oil (uplifting). The therapist may also advise the client to drink more water to moisturise the skin from within.
Tropic Skincare products used in all of our facials also work holistically on the skin and mind as they contain a number of essential oils, they are free from chemicals and harsh preservatives and are natural and vegan friendly and are sustainably sourced. See ‘ Tropic Pure Plant Skincare‘
Facial Massage can help improve circulation, maintain moisture balance, and remove toxins that may be present in facial muscles and tissues. It can also help with relieving headaches/migraines, stress and help get rid of sinus congestion. Pressure points on the face are used to stimulate facial muscles, relieve tension, boost collagen production and enhance the skin’s elasticity and appearance. Lymphatic drainage techniques are also used to reduce puffiness. The skin is left feeling soft, supple, hydrated and radiant.
Regular treatments can reduce fine lines and wrinkles make the skin look firmer, smoother and younger.
