Individuals that are concerned about their appearance may altogether spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on skin care products and services. Many of the spas are intent on the type of skincare treatments that they offer because their clients demand results. Each of these spas will use a selection of products that they feel are going to give the results their clients are looking for.
The skin reacts differently according to each individual. Therefore, spas have the challenge of looking for skincare products that they can consider as being universal in their benefits. Lavender, in its oil form, fits into this category.
Specific Lavender Oil Treatments
Although it would appear that lavender can deliver universal benefits, its oil has the unique ability to be beneficial for specific skin problems.
- Acne: One of the most common and annoying skin conditions is acne. It is commonly found on the face, but can also appear on other parts of the body, such as the upper chest and back. It is difficult to find a product that can be used consistently for acne treatment. New Zealand spas that include acne treatments as part of their service roster will often include lavender essential oil as part of the treatment plan. Lavender has anti-bacterial properties; most people know that bacteria is one of the culprits of acne.
- Lightening of the Skin: Many skin imperfections are as a result of changes to the pigment of the skin. Some experience redness or blotching. Lavender oil can help even out skin tones, and can also deal with hyperpigmentation, as well as age spots.
Lavender Spa Treatments
When the spa technician is treating conditions of the skin, the treatment will usually consist of lavender, in a delivery product, used in the facial. When they are treating larger areas, they may use its oils in a lavender bath.
