It’s no secret that when your skin doesn’t look and feel lovely—smooth, clear, glowing—it can be hard to feel lovely. Sometimes we have to deal with skin issues that we are at an utter loss about. Sure, we all know our skin type, what products we are and are not sensitive to, and that we should use products that are natural and organic, but sometimes no combination of products, or even litres of daily water drinking helps.
Purity and simplicity of product ingredients are important. But sometimes testing serums and body oils, cleansers and masks, on your own is not enough. The best estheticians will make suggestions about what products you should be using, make suggestions about your diet, supplements that you should try and other steps to take to ensure a healthy balance that will show in your skin.
Sphatika, New York, runs a monthly event: an evening of mini facials and skin consultations and psychic readings—fun! In the time it takes to have a cup of tea and a mini psychic reading after your facial, skin looks virtually transformed—smoother, more even, and less inflamed. We love their gentle Citrus Facial Foaming Gel, smoothing Gommage Exfoliating Crème and healing Treatment Serum.
We know that your skin is a reflection of what is going on inside your body, but the way you feel emotionally can be so tied to what your skin is projecting. A gentle skincare regime and positive thinking is a perfect remedy to any blues you are feeling because of your complexion.
