I have very sensitive skin; can I still get a facial?

Are facials for everyone?

Yes! You can get a facial by using skin products specially adapted to your skin type and condition. For sensitive skin we recommend special hypoallergenic products, avoiding ingredients causing allergic responses or laden with parabens, sulfites and other chemical stabilizers. Remember the skin is the body’s largest organ and absorbs many ingredients from the applied products. Switching to organic and natural skin products formulated with a combination of pure plant oils, healing plant extracts and natural essential oils usually gives great results without unwanted skin reactions.
