4. Enter into a retreat of oasis
Did you know stress can manifest in different ways? Some quick telltale signs of chronic stress are severe headaches like migraines, tight shoulder muscles, and neck pain.
It has been proven that massages can reduce stress levels by lowering heart rate, promoting relaxation, releasing endorphins (the feel-good hormones to improve your mood) and improving sleeping quality.
So, what’s the reason not to book yourself a pampering facial that includes a heavenly neck and shoulder massage that melts your tensions away instantly?
If you’re having an acne outbreak …
Stress releases large amounts of hormones such as cortisol into the bloodstream, causing your sebaceous glands to secrete more oil which leads to clogged pores and acne eventually.
Stay blemish-free with our award-winning Acne Biotic Facial Treatment which regulates sebum, controls bacteria growth, reduces inflammation and restores pH balance to solve your acne woes.
If you’re having increased skin sensitivity …
When stress overwhelms your body’s immune system, your skin will inevitably be affected as well as it’s the largest organ of your body. If you belong to the sensitive skin club, it may make your skin even more susceptible and reactive to triggers, irritants and aggressors.
Repair and protect your skin against stress with our groundbreaking innovation of Sensitive Pro Facial to treat sensitivity at a neurological level. It directly inhibits the main genes that are responsible for skin inflammation and boosts the skin’s immunity.
If you feel like the walking dead, we promise you’ll walk out feeling resurrected after these treatments.
Breathe, relax and recharge. While there’s no such thing as a stress-free life, let’s learn how to manage it effectively and regularly practice mindfulness and self-care for our holistic well-being.
In good hands,
