Vanity is one of the seven deadly sins. Indeed, we can all agree it’s unhealthy to become obsessed with how we look or constantly be thinking negatively about ourselves. Still, here at The Natural Beauty Salon, if treating yourself to facial treatments to gain great looking skin is being vain, then many of us are probably a little guilty. Natural Beauty believes harnessing facial therapies specific to your skin problem is smart; it’s about making sure your skin is in the best condition it possibly can and taking advantage of what’s out there to help you do this. If that all adds up to vanity, then sign us up! Natural Beauty Salon has some marvellous facial treatments on offer to help all sorts of skin issues, from dry skin and rosacea to acne and ageing.
Despite being told it’s not what we look like that matters, for most of us, we do tend to feel good about ourselves when our skin is glowingly behaving itself. So, it certainly won’t do any harm having the occasional facial treatment booked. Our ELEMIS’ facial treatments are all created to help your skin be at its best. When your skin is feeling and looking good, you’re automatically mindfully stronger and more confident—vanity aside!.
ELEMIS facials are indulgent and relaxing, softening and preparing the skin to receive nourishing actives applied through modern and ancient massage techniques. There are treatments for every skin type to deliver hydrated and healthy skin. Take our ELEMIS Advance Performance facial, which targets sensitive skin types to soothe and calm irritated skin, or our ELEMIS Superfood Pro-Radiance facial that delivers a nutritional boost of detoxifying active ingredients to energise dull, stressed skin. ELEMIS isn’t about vanity; they’re all about taking care of your skin and optimising it to be the best it can be.
LED Light Therapy
LED light therapy is a popular option if you don’t want anything invasive but looking for more targeted treatment. This therapy uses wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin at varying depths, with the LED light triggering the skin’s natural healing processes to help the skin rejuvenate and repair. LED light therapy offers different coloured lights to achieve different results, depending on what you’re looking to achieve. For example, red light therapy can target scarring and wrinkles, and blue light therapy can help improve acne, but whichever skin problem you’re looking to tackle, don’t see LED light therapy as vanity-driven. This is about you wanting to keep your skin looking its best, and if that means getting a little help, then there’s no need to feel guilty! For further advice about LED light therapy treatment, just get in touch.
Our microneedling treatment is similar to LED light therapy but slightly invasive. It uses tiny needles to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process while minimising cellular damage to generate new skin tissue and collagen. Put more bluntly; the process rejuvenates your skin from the inside out to similarly deliver results to improve acne, scarring, dermatitis, signs of ageing, pigmentation, psoriasis, rosacea, dull skin and sunburn damage. If you’re considering microneedling, some people may say vanity comes into play; however, this treatment is about harnessing the ideal treatment specifically for your skin problem.
CACI Facial Treatments
With a plethora of CACI treatments available, it’ll be hard to decide what’s the best treatment to tackle the specific skin issue you’re experiencing. Natural Beauty are on hand to give you the advice you need, but here’s an overview of the types of CACI treatments we offer:
Microdermabrasion is an invasive cosmetic procedure where the skin’s outermost surface is partially or entirely removed by light abrasion. Despite the invasive nature of the treatment perhaps being construed as vanity, the process of removing dead skin cells will deliver softer, more youthful-looking skin that nobody is going to argue!
For something a little less invasive, ultrasonic skin peeling is a far gentler and less aggressive option of skin exfoliation. Using a hand-held piece containing ceramic/quartz heads charged by an electrical current, the device emits piezoelectric vibrations on the skin surface. It’s these 27,000 rapid vibrations that push skin impurities to the skin surface, causing dead skin cells to become dislodged. The vibrating device then deep cleanses and gently exfoliates the epidermis.
If your skin issue is more to do with muscle tone and sagging skin, then our CACI microcurrent treatment delivers tiny electrical impulses to stimulate and re-educate the muscles into lifting. Again, vanity doesn’t play a part as it’s nothing more than a workout for your facial muscles, with the process simply producing a lifting effect on facial muscles and facial contours—it’s a bit like a gym session, but for your face!
Hydratone is similar to our microcurrent treatment but additionally incorporates a unique, electrically conductive silicon gel mask along with the microcurrent rollers. This gel mask is infused with powerful hydrating properties that become electrically charged by the massaging action, bathing the face with rejuvenating energy.
Whether you know what facial therapy you need or are undecided, Natural Beauty can help you decide on the best treatment for your skin type and specific issues that you want to tackle. And, if you’re simply looking to maintain your skin in the best condition it can be, we can help with this too. And remember, splurging on facial treatments once in a while isn’t about vanity; it’s about taking care of your skin and utilising the best treatment methods and active ingredients to help you do this—help your skin glow and be at its best!
