National Relaxation Day

National Relaxation Day – Give Your Skin a Treat

August 15th is National Relaxation Day. It’s a public holiday to remind people to slow down and do something enjoyable – it’s not just an excuse not to go to work! But seriously, relaxing is important for promoting good mental health and wellbeing. 

Just taking time out for yourself can help you to deal more effectively with any stress and anxiety in your life. Being in a relaxed state is also great news for your skin. This is because when you’re stressed your body produces cortisol. Cortisol can make your skin oily and leave you prone to spots or acne. Conditions like rosacea and eczema also tend to flare up in times of stress.

Making time to relax will reduce your stress levels. Therefore hormones like cortisol won’t go into overdrive and your skin will benefit. So, this August the 15th why not treat yourself to a SkinBase facial. 

SkinBase Collagen Lift

Collagen Lift is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t involve needles making it perfect if you don’t like injections of any type. We use a small hand-held device which delivers energy waves into your skin. It feels like a hot stones massage. The treatment is completely painless. In fact, It’s warm and relaxing. But, what it does is wake up your skin and encourages the production of elastin and collagen. Elastin gives your skin its firmness and collagen adds volume and flexibility to skin. 

Long-lasting Results

You’ll feel your skin becoming firmer and when the treatment has finished you’ll notice the difference immediately. Fine lines and wrinkles will have faded. Sagging jowls are drawn inwards so that your face has a better profile. It even continues to work for 2 or 3 months after you’ve finished the course. It’s a treatment that not only leaves you feeling relaxed but with rejuvenated skin too!
