Lets first look at the different skin types – Acne, Baby, Combination, Dry, Eczema, Mature, Normal, Oily and Scarred skin.

Acne Skin. There are four main causes of acne, hormonal imbalance, auto intoxication, stress and diet. The therapist will treat all these factors. Of course stress is treated by the aromatherapy treatment itself and hormonal imbalances can be rectified with the appropriate essential oils. Dietary advice can be given. Essential oils in skin care products help in a number of ways when applied to the problem area. They are anti-bacterial, they help encourage circulation and therefore the removal of waste matter. They deep cleanse the skin and help return it to normal by balancing the secretions of the sebaceous glands.

Baby. Baby skin is very sensitive skin. it makes sense to be careful to choose products with the minimum of synthetic ingredients, avoiding products containing perfume, lanolin, mineral oil and certain soaps. Our products can also be provided in bases that are parabens and sulphate free.

Combination. Usually one skin type predominates so that this is the one to attend to. If the skin is clearly divided into oily and dry areas treat these areas separately with the correct mask.

Dry. Dry skin is a common problem and can actually be due to a lack of fluid uptake. Other causes are by lost moisture or insufficient oil production. An effective moisturiser will replace the moisture lost while essential oils will normailise the production of natural oil.

Eczema. Eczema in the main is hereditary but is aggravated by stress, diet and environmental pollutants. it can be treated very well with the correct essential oils and specific skin care.

Mature. Essential oils are excellent for helping to preserve the youthful appearance of the skin and also for rejuvenating mature skin as certain essential oils help the regeneration of new skin cells. They also have preservation properties and help to prevent the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Normal. A normal skin is neither too oily nor too dry - it is clear, smooth, radiant and rare! Aromatherapy skin care helps maintain a good complexion by keeping the blood circulation active and restoring the natural moisture balance.

Oily. This skin type can have open pores and is prone to spots. However it usually maintains its suppleness for longer than other skin types and may appear to age more slowly. Essential oils can do much to normalise the production of oil from the sebaceous glands.

Scar Care. Natural Products are particularly effective in reducing the pain and appearance of scars
