Vitamin A is often spoken about as a key ingredient when it comes to advanced skincare. Although there are several forms of Vitamin A, they are all ultimately converted in retinoic acid which is the form that does all the work. Myth 1. Vitamin A thins the skin Vitamin A actually compacts the stratum corneum and thickens the epidermis. It also influences the genes that cause epidermal stem cells to grow into fully functioning keratinocytes and mature into healthy layers of the epidermis.

Whilst we are proud to say all our massages use aromatherapy oils blended by Aromatherapy Associates, I often encounter the question...."What is aromatherapy?"  Aromatherapy by definition is a holistic treatment involving the use of essential oils extracted from plants to improve physical and emotional well being. It helps to promote health and vitality by stimulating the body to heal itself and by reducing stress, which is often a cause of many aliments and illnesses.   Essential oils are aromatic, mostly liquid substances from various parts of a plant, such as from petals, bark, twigs, roots, leaves, seeds and resins.  There are…

Monday, July 10th, 2017

In our constant quest to be at the forefront of skin health and anti ageing, we have found our new favourite ingredient and it's called Astaxanthin.

Fat - Skin friend not skin Foe

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

As we come into the Summer months, simply mention the word fat and you are likely to silence a room. So what if we were to tell you that there are in fact lots of health benefits and more importantly, skin benefits to incorporating heathy fats into your diet.
