Very clean! The New Zealand Association of Registered Beauty Therapists (of which we are members) & the Auckland council have been working together on the rules and regulations of beauty therapy, which must be met in order to obtain a Health & Hygiene licence. As a member of NZARBTh, we are extremely excited to welcome these long awaited Health & Hygiene laws to the beauty industry.
This Health & Hygiene licence will guarantee your therapist is fully trained & qualified not only in your treatments, but also in sterilisation & sanitation. Ours is displayed on site.
Rest assured, we take our health & hygiene procedures very seriously and have strict hygiene practices in place. We use disposable equipment where possible, including the use of our nail files which (like all disposable equipment) we limit to using once per client. For equipment that is not disposable, we use hospital grade disinfectant and autoclave sterilisation. During our pedicure treatments, we do NOT use credo blades or similar.
The Soaking Ritual is a conditioning step to rebalance and awaken your skin, encouraging direct skin hydration and deep absorption of herbal actives. Both morning and night, soak the skin to directly hydrate, then lock the water in with a mist and concentrated moisturiser. Soak longer if you are new to this soaking step or if your skin is especially dehydrated.
Hydrating your skin is one of the most beneficial steps you can take for your skin health. The top layer of your skin needs to reach its dew point to be completely hydrated. Maintaining the dew point, maintains hydration. This is one of the most anti ageing things you can do for your skin.
If you're not soaking, you're not hydrating. If you're not hydrating, you're not looking after your skin properly. It's as simple as that. Read more about Skin Care here..
Lifestyle and eating habits are directly reflected in our skin's health and appearance. Often we do not consider that the food we choose to eat or the health of our bodies has any influence on the condition of our skin.
Besides caring for our skin from the outside, we can treat our skin as part of our body as it is essentially created and nourished from the inside. Learn more about Skin Nutrition
No, we don't, nor will we add these treatments to our menu in the future.
We are proud to be a part of the Slow Beauty movement.
The Slow Beauty movement describes a fast growing sub-culture of beauty therapists who have lost faith in the 'quick-fix', often invasive products and procedures that abound in the beauty industry and are drawn to a holistic approach to skincare with a focus on dermo-nutrition, wellness and genuine skin health from the inside out.
The Slow Beauty movement is following a similar trajectory to the Slow Food movement and reflects a similar shift in values away from short-term convenience towards slower, deeper and truer ideals.
The tides of change are well underway and there is now a new generation of beauty therapists leading the way in holistic, 'slow' beauty.
