Natural Living Spa Treatment

It's that time again when the mornings and nights start getting colder as autumn slowly creeps in

When the seasons change, the air becomes drier and the days colder

And the gorgeous green hues of the previous season turns to lovely orange hues, letting everyone know that it's autumn season.

The autumn season is symbolic of abundance, change, and rebirth. But it's also a symbol of decay, decline and even death. To make way for the "new", we sometimes have to get rid of the old. The same is true for our skin. Unlike summer, autumn's chilly weather draws moisture from the skin, causing it to become scorched as the protection barrier no longer exists.

So changing your skincare routine during the change of season is crucial to maintaining healthy, well-moisturised skin.

Better yet, book yourself a relaxing facial or full-body massage and let our experienced beauticians help you get ready for the cold months ahead. We have compiled this skincare guide that features skincare tips and treatments available at Natural Living Spa to prevent dry skin and seasonal breakouts. With a few skincare remedies and tweaks to your routine, you can keep your skin healthy throughout autumn and winter.

The importance of good skincare

Very few women know that a good skincare routine is only as good as your products. It's no secret that poor quality skin care products often lead to more skin problems as it lacks healthy, beneficial nutrients. Below we cover why skincare is essential, and we provide some insightful tips on how you can look after your skin during the next few months.

It helps your skin stay in good condition

An effective routine can prevent unwanted skin breakouts, acne or wrinkles. Throughout each day, you shed skin cells, so it's essential to adopt good skincare habits that will keep your skin glowing, no matter the season.

You'll look younger.

With age, your skin cells rejuvenate at a slower pace, making it seem dull or blemished. Using quality skin care products helps remove dead skin cells so that your body can naturally replace them with more youthful-looking cells.

Prevention is better than cure.

It's far easier to prevent skin breakouts than to repair them. A skincare routine is necessary to avoid any skin irritations or future problems. Booking a monthly facial is a great way to ensure you prevent any skin problems in the future.

It gives you a self-confidence boost.

Let's face it. Everyone wants to look better, younger and more radiant. Healthy skin will give you all the confidence in the world, and you will feel better than ever.

Skincare essentials

An effective skincare routine consists of the following essential components:


We recommend using your exfoliator before your moisturiser and after your cleanser. Apply this maximum once or twice a week, not every day. Keep a close eye on your skin and how it handles your exfoliator. If it leaves rash marks or irritates your skin, you should consider a different brand.


A toner is typically used after you have washed your face. It helps restore healthy nutrients and provides you with smooth skin.


Gently wash your face with a cleanser to get rid of excessive skin oil and grime. If you have naturally dry skin, we recommend using an alcohol-free cleanser. If you have oily skin, we recommend avoiding oily cleaners. Rinse your skin with warm water when you're done applying your cleanser.


As you probably know, the sun can cause a lot of skin damage, so you must protect your skin with sunscreen. We recommend choosing a sunscreen with a broad spectrum of protection and an SPF of at least 30.


This should be used after every face wash, even with oily skin. The nice thing about moisturisers is that they create a barrier between your skin and the climate. It also rehydrates the skin and enhances the skin's water-bearing capacity.

Benefits of quality skincare products

There are several benefits to good skincare products:
    1. It dramatically improves your skin's appearance and texture, giving you that sought after youthful appearance. The quality of the ingredients plays a vital role in its impact on your skin, just like healthy food has on the body.
    2. It protects from environmental damage, such as the sun's effect on your skin.
    3. Quality skin care products help fight the signs of ageing.
    4. Even though quality products cost more, the ingredients are more refined, making them super effective.

Benefits of getting regular facials

Today's facial treatments are an investment in your skin, beauty, and overall well-being. It's no secret that by looking good, you also feel good. Seeing as though the skin is the largest organ in the body, we need to protect and look after it at all costs. Regular facials can help slow down the ageing process by stimulating circulation, flushing toxins, moisturising and improving collagen production in the skin.

Here are some of the other benefits of regular facials:

Relieves stress

When specific pressure points in the facial muscles are pressed, it activates the nervous system, which reduces anxiety and stress.

Deep cleaning

Face-cleansing facials remove dead skin from the skin by cleaning the pores and exfoliating the skin.

It rejuvenates the skin

One of the most critical factors determining beauty has been clear, radiant, and firm skin throughout history. Unlike in the past when only the wealthy could afford beauty products, today, these products are more affordable. Regular facials firms up the skin and treats elements such as wrinkles, acne and skin laxity.

Prevents ageing

As you get older, your body starts to show signs of ageing. Regular facials boost cell regeneration and improve collagen production. All which naturally slows down as you age.

Improves blood circulation

Several studies have shown that facials improve blood circulation in the face, which means your cells get lots of nutrients and oxygen. This boost is what translates to a glowing complexion.
