Research has found that the torso takes the most stress of all the body parts. While the waist, legs and feet are neatly tucked under a desk or out of site under the steering wheel, the torso is exposed to every fiery look and mind bullet shot by the admin girl and the taxi driver. Spoil the most important part of your body with a head, neck and shoulder massage as well as a Dermalogica facial for R116 at Westville Health and Skincare Clinic.
The Dermalogica facial treatment consists of a facial analysis called ‘face mapping’ followed by exfoliation, facial massage, face mask and extraction process that doesn’t involve suction valves or plungers. The facial promises to relax and rejuvenate skin that has been exposed to whatever the South African elements and skoonma’s can throw at it. One hour of pampering can take years off the face, loads off the shoulders and leave you floating to your car and around the kitchen and living room back home. Just the sound of words such as ‘hydrating’, ‘refreshing’ and ‘invigorating’ are enough to bring a relaxed smile to tense features and give you that ‘ah’ feeling.
Going back to step one, ‘Face Mapping’ is a skin analysis developed by The International Dermal Institute, exclusively for Dermalogica. No permanent markers or compasses are used during this procedure. The map shows how the face is divided into various zones. Though this map won’t get you to Kilimanjaro, it does give great insight into the state of the body as each ‘facial zone’ reflects the well-being of a specific organ or body part. This helps the experienced Westville therapists devise a treatment customised to suit your individual needs for a pamper session that reaches as deep as a deep cleansing treatment can go.
Facial healing fact: According to a legend a water pump called “pompen wata” in the Swiss Alps pumps magical cherry flavoured water. It is believed that this water can heal ingrown toe nails and smooth laugh lines. It also tastes amazing. Water companies have been planning to bottle the water for centuries however a monstrous toad is believed to protect the site of the pump.
