Why you should go organic at the spa

Organic Spa Treatments‘Organic’ is a word that is instantly recognisable in this day and age, suggesting something that is fresh, healthy, superior and, above all, good for you. Going organic goes beyond the food we eat, with organic treatments now a popular addition to spa breaks in Yorkshire.

Why should I go organic at the spa?

  • All-natural ingredients

Many cheap beauty products are packed full of artificial chemicals. Our skin absorbs about 60 per cent of products used on it, which is why many avoid chemicals and turn to an organic spa treatment for pampering that is as good for you as it is indulgent.

  • Long-term natural beauty

Artificial chemicals may provide a quick fix, but they can damage the skin in the long term by causing skin irritation and sensitivity. It may take longer to see the benefits when using organic beauty treatments, but it should be treated like an investment in the future of your skin.

  • Sustainably-produced products

When you leave the spa not only will your skin feel great, but your conscience will too. Organic treatments are made from organic ingredients, which means that they are produced sustainably, using practices that have minimum impact on the environment.

A few pointers on keeping your skin in tip top condition

As we get older, the last thing most of us want is for our skin to look tired and worn out. While a youthful complexion will offer you a range of benefits, the most important thing it will give you is confidence. Here are a few tips on making your skin look younger for less, because you can’t always treat yourself to the luxury experience of a spa in Yorkshire.

Firstly, you need to find a good cleanser, with cream cleansers offering the perfect remedy for dry skin while clear ones are excellent at removing an oily complexion. It is, however important not to cleanse too much, otherwise you could seriously risk damaging your skin complexion. Just by washing your face once at night to remove any make up or sun tan lotion is perfect; after all, it’s important to remove all of the toxins from your pores to maintain glowing skin condition.

The next is exfoliation, a step people too often completely skip from their schedule. To exfoliate your skin, simply add a tiny amount of cleanser onto a damp cloth, applying it to your skin in a circular motion. Another method is using a scrub, good at removing the top layer of skin cells which can dull your complexion. Using a light scrub once a week should be enough for visible results.

Finally it is important to moisturise, the ultimate warrior in the arduous battle against dry skin. It is a common belief that a decent moisturiser is worth the investment, the kind you would find on spa breaks. You should be able to tell how your skin feels to determine how much moisturiser you should be using. If it’s too little your skin will look sore, however too much and you may find your pores can get clogged.
