The events of 2020 saw many of us taking beauty & skin treatments into our homes. It was a time for DIY and we must say, we loved the convenience of it! Nurturing our skin with nourishing treatments doesn't need to be limited to our salon or spa visits, we've seen it's just as important on a daily and weekly basis too.
Achieving home spa results is the inspiration behind the much loved skincare range, Retreatment Botanics. The products are featured in the award-winning facials at Gaia Retreat & Spa in the Byron Bay hinterland. Co-founder Olivia Newton-John and her expert team at Gaia originally developed their luxurious, high-performance products so guests could recreate the same Spa Results and Experience every day at home.
In the recent months, two of our Nourished Life team members were lucky enough to visit the beautiful Gaia Retreat and experience the incredible spa treatments first hand. They left glowing from the inside out - and admittedly, didn't want to leave! Thankfully, we can all create that same blissful feeling while transforming our skin with this home spa facial from Retreatment Botanics:
Release the 'routine'
Routines can feel like a chore, and it's hardly inspiring to bring more tedious routines into your daily life! Having developed a skincare range for an iconic wellness spa, Retreatment Botanics has always encouraged people to let go of the routine and embrace daily rituals that enhance their wellbeing. Skincare rituals can create a moment for you to set intentions for yourself, and your skin health, as well as an opportunity to relax your emotions and help you to stay calm and centered.
How to create a skincare ritual
As you begin your skincare ritual, find a moment to take a few deep breaths while applying your products. Relax your facial muscles while massaging the product in gentle, upward circular motions and bask in the pure essential oil aromas that evoke the healing journey of a Day Spa Treatment. Continue your deep, restorative breaths... Inhale slowly through your nose, then exhale deeply while visualising mental & physical tension melting away.
Daily skin nourishment
Retreatment Botanics daily ritual combines age-defying formulas for amazing results with the benefit of self-care.
Cleansing daily (AM & PM) provides an opportunity to set your intentions first thing in the morning and de-stress in the evening.
The Purifying Gel Cleanser & Radiance Cream Cleanser deeply cleanses the skin, while gently removing impurities and surface pollution.
REPLENISH WITH SERUMS
Applying nourishing serums in the AM & PM allows you to gently massage your face and release tension and stress. Serums are a vital part of your ritual as they provide active & potent ingredients to replenish and target your skin concerns.
The Kakadu Brightening Serum is an intensive vitamin C serum that targets hyperpigmentation, sunspots, blemishes and uneven skin tone.
The Restore Serum is a potent superfood face oil elixir that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for vibrant, radiantly glowing skin.
PROTECT YOUR SKIN
Moisturising your skin in the AM and PM relaxes your emotions as you deeply inhale the divine scents, setting intention for beautiful, healthy skin.
Weekly skin treatment
Setting aside a little extra time each week to indulge your skin in an at-home facial will nurture your wellbeing and supercharge your skincare results.
RESURFACE & RENEW
1-2 times per week, after cleansing, gently exfoliate with the Refining Face Polish to dissolve dull surface build up and draw out excess dirt, oil and impurities to reveal a soft, smooth, luminous complexion.
PAMPER & GET THE GLOW
After polishing, pamper your skin with a nutrient rich Instant Glow Face Masque to visibly brighten and renew the skin, while evoking the Day Spa senses. This masque clears, smoothes and prepares your skin for maximum penetration of all your other products.
