One of the key things we do at Simply Indulgent is to carefully Face Map your skin to understand what is happening both visually and by touch.
During your consultation we carry out in-depth analysis of your lifestyle, skin history, medications, allergies and intolerances to get an understanding of what your skin needs. Ultimately your concerns are what we work towards but sometimes your skin requires balancing before we can effectively and safely create the skin you want.
Your skin has a microbiome that is a natural balance of flora and fauna that protect its pH balance. This can be negatively affected by soap, hot water, cold temperatures, rapid changes in temperature, over exfoliation, excessive cleansing, congesting makeup, diet, digestive allergies, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, poor hygiene habits, stress.... the list goes on. Our role is to help you learn what to avoid or implement into your daily routine to bring about healthy skin.
We choose skin treatments to work with your individual needs which may change depending on what is happening in your life. We also help you to understand why we prescribe what we do along with when and how to use those products.
Acne exists because of the Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria. It can proliferate on oily skin but equally there are other bacteria that love dry skin and can also cause breakouts. Picking at your skin, not cleaning makeup brushes and sponges just continues the cycle. Wouldn't you love to be able to go makeup free?
Skin Therapists learn about skin for a minimum of two years during training. Then for the rest of our lives we continue to learn as every persons’ skin is different. The skincare your friend uses may not be ideal for you. Funny how we often trust our friends but not the experts!
LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy is a cost effective treatment that supports a healthy microbiome. Blue light is used for acne treatment and red light for anti-aging.
We are offering LED Light Therapy as a complementary upgrade on all facials during March. Simply click Add on LED Light Therapy when you book your facial.
Restoring Skin’s Balance
Sensitised, irritated or dry/dehydrated skin is crying out for oil. Often it's the oil that is lost with over exfoliation and excessive use of foaming scrubs. Our approach is to gently restore the skin’s balance with fabulous calming ingredients, well researched and cooling, soothing and protecting properties including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Licorice or Oat Kernels. Once a sensitive skins balance is restored it can cope with so much more in terms of treatments or buffered retinol so it maintains a soft, supple healthy glow.
