A 1 hour & 15minutes of pure facial bliss, skin restoration, rejuvenation and detoxing is what awaits you when you book in for Ruah Organic's GAIA~ Facial Treatment…
This time of year is the perfect time to give your skin this facial to prevent further damage and treat existing damage. Increased sun exposure, pollution, excessive junk food and alcohol consumption all cause oxidative stress and seem to be unavoidable at this time of the year! Ruah's GAIA~ Detox Treatment Facial has been designed to tackle oxidative stress and its main side effect, premature ageing.
Begin your luxurious facial with a cleanse customised to you!
The cleanser used in the double cleanse is customised to suit your skin type, and includes natural skin-loving oils such as Olive Oil, Avocado Oil and Vitamin E. It supports skin barrier function, is anti-inflammatory, helps to repair an impaired acid mantle and is excellent post-sun exposure (thanks to the free radical scavenger properties provided by the vitamin E).
Vit E also promotes healing, reduces diffused redness, encourages the renewal of skin cells and helps to protect the cell membrane against UV damage.
Avocado Oil is known as our ‘rescue oil’ as it penetrates deep into the layers of the skin to support the regeneration, repair and rejuvenation of sun-damaged, dehydrated and environmentally challenged skin.
This is then followed by our favourite Enzyme Treatment Mask that gently exfoliates using natural enzymes found in papaya and pineapple.
The enzymes are proteins that clarify and even out skin tone through a proteolytic action.
The Enzyme Treatment Mask gently refines the surface of the skin without over-exfoliating and damaging the skin barrier by dissolving the corneocyte immediately. This step will leave your skin feeling smoother, improve hyper-keratinisation and prepare your skin for an application of our GAIA Mask.
Our GAIA Mask is a pure and natural clay mask consisting of silicates kaolin and montmorillonite (clay minerals) as well as portions of quartz, mica, limonite and other mineral ions.
The Mask draws out impurities and absorbs them through a process called osmotic exchange.
During this exchange the unsatisfied ionic bonds that are around the edges of the mineral particles in the mask draw out impurities, toxins and bacteria which all have a positive charge, swapping it with its ion that has a negative charge. This means the mask delivers your skin all the good stuff while it also takes away the bad stuff - a Detox!
In this particular treatment, it is infused with Green Tea Extract, another real detoxing hero.
Green Tea fights environmental damage and free radicals, repairs DNA, helps to protect against UV radiation and also slows down the degradation of collagen while increasing microcirculation.
The last step of the GAIA~ Detox Facial Treatment is a bespoke mask infused with botanicals and actives to help your individual skin’s concerns and goals.
Aromatherapy used: Lemon Myrtle, Eucalyptus, Sandalwood and Geranium (Essential Oils can becustomised upon request)
While this treatment is indulgent and luxurious, it is equally hard-working for your skin, helping to detox and give you real results.
