Frequently Asked Questions
Organic & Natural Facials
What makes an organic and natural facial different from a traditional facial?
All the ingredients that are used during an organic and natural facial are food-grade, natural and USDA-certified organic. The ingredients are dry and in powder form and become activated by an organic hydrating solution ( Aloe, Distilled water, Organic Honey, Vegetable Glycerin). Which means the facials are more beneficial to the skin, because the ingredients are fresh.
What ingredients do you use during the facial?
The ingredients are a mixture of fruits, vegetables, oils, clays and hydrosols; Find a list and their benefits here.
What ingredients do you avoid using during the facial?
Our facials avoid the use of ingredients that are apart of the “Dirty Dozen” list. Find the list here.
Can any of your facials help cure my acne?
Yes. One of the main contributors to acne is bacteria and inflammation. The ingredients used to calm acne breakouts are naturally detoxifying and anti inflammatory essential oils, which are safe and effective. We also incorporate a facial cupping massage for a deep detoxifying cleansing during our Classic Organic Facial, which suctions and pulls congestion from the pores. The Cryo Facial also, will kill bacteria and calm inflammation in acne prone skin.
Why did you take facial peels off of your treatment menu?
I am now using an organic floral exfoliator that has more beneficial exfoliating properties than the botanical peels.
How often should I get an organic facial?
The frequency of facials depends upon your skin care goals. Here are some suggested time frames:
regular cleaning; 4 to 6 weeks
active inflammed acne: 2 to 3 weeks
fine lines and wrinkles: 1 a week (cyro facial package of 6)

Why is sugaring better than waxing?
Wax has many chemical ingredients while sugaring paste is made from 100% natural ingredients. Hot Wax must be heated to a very high degree in order to become liquefied. This amount of heat can cause burning and scarring. It also causes swelling in the tissues, which makes hair removal difficult. Long term use can breakdown the underlying connecting tissues, especially in the lip and brow areas which is associated with WRINKLING.
Do I have to be a certain age?
The best age to start is at puberty.
