If you want to relax you could read poems about Mother earth while listening to Enya or enjoy a quiet game of croquet with your gran. Much more effective, however is a full body Hot Stone massage at Zen Skincare. Here the therapist uses smooth, heated basalt stones to give you a warm, relaxing massage. The heat of the stones penetrates the muscle tissue for a soothing effect, while improving circulation and calming the nervous system.
If you want to go all out, then add a facial to the mix. Facials keep your skin young and they’re much easier than making an egg mayonnaise mask and wearing it all day, not to mention they don’t smell as bad. Through the deep-cleansing of pores, exfoliation and the stimulation of circulation; facials go a long way to rejuvenating dull, sallow skin.
Zen Skincare offers two facial options to cater to any skin type: the Stem Cell Mask and the Alga Mask. The Stem Cell Mask is an intensive anti-aging facial which will invigorate and nourish the skin by maintaining the activity of the skin stem cells, all the while keeping it picture perfect and supple. After all, it’s much harder to do yoga manoeuvres with your face, so this is another option for maintaining elasticity. The plant stem cells cultivated from the apple tree can delay the process of aging, but unfortunately this doesn’t mean that rubbing apples on your face will have the same effect.
Then there is the green Alga Mask, which consists of a form of seaweed called micro algae. Thanks to the seaweed, with its healing antioxidants and anti-aging properties, you will leave Zen Skincare with a happy healthy glow and a possible craving for nori. The Alga Mask will also help to boost the skins immunoresponse.
Say goodbye to that throbbing stress vein in your temple and hello to a happy, more relaxed you. You’ll look good and feel good and your neighbours will be glad you don’t smell like egg mayonnaise anymore.
