In this article, we will be running you through some of our exciting treatments. We will be giving you skin tips to ensure healthier-looking skin this autumn.
Looking for change?
No time for intensive skin-care?
Good skincare, staying away from the sun, and regular gentle cleaning will keep your skin glowing and healthier than ever. Here are some skin tips that you can try out.
Protect your skin from the sun
A lifetime’s exposure to the sun will, without a doubt, take its toll on your skin. Thus preventative measures must be taken to prevent wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems. For complete protection, we recommend that you use a high SPF sunscreen and apply it regularly and stick to the shade when the sun is at its strongest.
Treat your skin softly
Did you know that long showers or baths actually removes healthy oils from your skin? We suggest limiting your bath time and rather use warm water instead of boiling hot. You should also avoid strong soaps that irritate and damage your skin, instead opting for mild cleaners.
When you get out of the shower or bath, take a clean towel and gently pat down your skin. When you start noticing that your skin is dry, we suggest using a moisturiser that suits your skin type.
Eating a healthy balanced diet goes a long way
Try and work in plenty of fruits and veggies in your diet, and when you eat meat, opt for leaner cuts. The correlation between a bad diet and skin problems are still somewhat unfamiliar. However, some research suggests that a diet rich in fish oil and low in refined carbs might promote younger and healthier-looking skin. Drinking plenty of water also goes a very long way.
Stress can and eventually will take a toll on your health and skin. Copious amounts of stress make your skin sensitive, and you are more prone to acne breakouts. To encourage healthy skin and state of mind, it’s crucial to make time to de-stress.
One way to entirely rid your body of the unneeded stress is to visit Natural Living spa for a luxurious massage treatment or perhaps a relaxing facial. You’ll be surprised at what an afternoon of relaxation will do for your skin.

This is a popular treatment at our spa and has been used for centuries because of its healing properties. Nothing beats the feeling you get when your sore muscle pains and aches fade away while you relax and restore your mind as well as your body.
In this treatment we’ve harnessed this power to heal through smooth, flat stones that are placed on the body. Our friendly therapist will gently place these stones on areas such as the spine, stomach, chest, face, palms and feet.
When the treatment is over, you won’t be left with any more feelings of pain or muscle aches. If the stress of life ways you down, it’s time to book a session where you can unwind in a beautiful bushveld-inspired setting.
Preparing your skin for autumn
As the leaves change in the autumn season, so does your skin. When the temperature drops and the days become colder, your skin starts drying out. Although with a few skincare tips, you can keep your skin happy and healthy, as a result preventing your skin from drying out this upcoming autumn and winter season.
Tip 1: Get yourself a moisturising cleanser
With the low temperatures, the humidity in the air drops, causing the skin to lose moisture, resulting in unwanted dry skin. Avert this by changing your light cleanser for something a little more hydrating.
