Dermalogica skin care products are developed by The International Dermal Institute. Place these top-of-the-range lotions and balms in the capable hands of Durban’s Faces therapists, you can be sure to get a facial of international standard customised to the needs of South African skin. Skin that gets wrinkled by kids, scarred, cut, blistered, scratched, bruised and sunburnt at Sunday braais in the backyard.
The facial promises to relax and rejuvenate skin exposed to whatever the South African elements and skoonma’s can throw at it. 75 minutes of pampering can take years off the face, loads off the shoulders and leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated long after leaving the cool interior of the salon. Just the sound of words such as red clover, hydrating honey and raspberry fruit extract are enough to bring a relaxed smile to tense features and give you that ‘ah’ feeling.
Beautiful fact #102: Brazilian beauticians make clients chew on brussel sprouts dipped in vinegar during Brazilian wax procedures. The foul taste of the sprout clouds the pain caused by the wax. Patients then cry out in disgust rather than agony which make the beauticians sleep better at night.
