Holistic skin care philosophy

Growing up in rural New Zealand I developed a strong connection to the transient seasons and rhythmic cycles of nature. I recall being fascinated with human biology and natural beauty. I went on to study beauty therapy and gained a comprehensive foundation in anatomy, physiology and cosmetic chemistry.

I was introduced to the philosophy of holistic skin care as I began working with Dr Hauschka, a natural skin care range. Their approach was unique as it honoured the interconnectedness of the whole and yet this concept that felt very familiar to me. I was inspired by the organic farming practices and rhythmic polarities they used to create their unique plant extracts. Since then, I have always used sustainable skincare products formulated with integrity and free from synthetic chemicals.

I thoughtfully curate my bespoke facials using native Mukti Organics and Aotea skin care as appropriate for each individual skin. I have intentionally selected these two ranges for their active botanical ingredients and optimised delivery systems. In addition to using natural skin care products, their preparation and application to the skin works in harmony with and not against the natural rhythms of the skin.

Working holistically throughout my bespoke facials further activates and harmonises the body’s natural forces. I support the many regenerative cycles by incorporating warmth, rhythmic breathing, therapeutic touch and lymphatic activation. My bespoke facials are designed to stimulate the circulatory and nervous systems to detoxify, regenerate and strengthen the skin. My holistic approach also informs how I choose to my live, intuitively and in harmony with the many rhythms of nature.
