It’s got to that time of year again and our winter woolies are back with a vengeance! Even though we are covered up from head to toe it is important not to forget about our skin underneath. This is were body treatments and products come in.
Here at Beauty Haven Belfast we have a wide range of body treatments to suit all skin types, whether it be dry or problematic. Body treatments are essentially like having a facial for your whole body, leaving the skin smooth and radiant. Body treatments also help give you that feel good factor that we all like to have. With a body treatment the benefits are endless.
Exfoliation is key to having a healthy, glowing skin even in winter. The accumulation of dead skin cells can cause rough, dry skin. The most common problem people have is a condition called keratosis pilaris. It appears as rough bumps sometimes red in colour and can be mainly found on the back and outer sides of the upper arms. It can also occur on the thighs and is completely harmless, though women are more prone to the condition than men.
To help ease skin problems such as keratosis pilaris, we recommend a Beauty Haven Hydro-Active Mineral Scrub. This body therapy will polish skin to a soft glow while providing critical hydration and nourishment. Mineral Sea Salts and Seaweed exfoliate while skin-smoothing enzymes help dissolve dead skin cells naturally for a smooth finish.
If you have more time available and really want to get the most out of a body treatment, then the Beauty Haven Dermalogica Prescriptive Body Treatment is for you. This hour long treatment starts with the Hydro-Active salt scrub to prepare your skin for a customised body mask. Choose between the Enzymatic Sea Mud pack for purifying and detoxifying or the wonderfully hydrating aloe based Hydro Pack. Whilst you are cocooned, enjoy a relaxing scalp massage to soothe and ease away tension.
As our backs are always hard to see and reach, back treatments are always beneficial. Not only will it help ease away tension but will also cleanse and purify and eliminate any congestion. To help keep your back in tip top condition after your body treatment think about what products you use during your shower or bath. Can you always reach every spot? Fear not we have an answer in the form of the Ultimate Buffing Cloth and Conditioning Body Wash.
Conditioning Body Wash provides soap-free, superior cleansing that is acid-balanced to prevent over-drying of your skin. The Ultimate Buffing Cloth exfoliates gently yet efficiently and is the perfect size to effectively cleanse hard to reach areas and when both products are used in conjuction with each other you will get an amazing power-cleanse with a wonderful aroma. These products and more from the Dermalogica Body range are available at Beauty Haven Belfast.
Don’t forget that massages are not only a great way to re-hydrate skin but also stimulates the circulatory system to help provide essential nutrients to the skin. Deep manipulations along pressure points and the meridian of the body relieve aching muscle tissue and work to re-balance the body.
