Get a better skin with these 5 tips

For us as massage therapists, the skin is first thing that we examine before starting our therapy on a client. It is a good indicator of overall health, age and condition of the person. You may have just now realised that even though most of our skin is covered by clothes, in everyday interactions with others, the skin can give away more about us than we are willing to share. Here, we share with you few tips on how to take care of this largest organ of your body.

1. Stress
We already know that stress can cause acne, but did you know that the texture of your skin is affected by stress too? When we find ourselves in the intense period without a way to relax or just simply let out the stress, our skin becomes thinner and its ability to regenerate decreases. Prolonged intense stress can eventually lead to redness, itchiness, and eczema.

2. Exercise
When we move often enough, we promote our body’s toxin elimination processes. Sweating, increased lymph flow and blood circulation, all these help to reduce free radicals that cause damage to the collagen (responsible for the skin’s elasticity) in the skin. More collagen, less wrinkles.

3. Sleep
The good night sleep is there for a reason. It is not only for refreshing your body and mind, but also it serves as a time for replenishing your skin. Did you ever wonder why we sometimes wake up with puffy eyes? That is because during sleep, there is increased blood flow to the facial area. This means that more nutrition is brought to this tissue.  Overall, sleep is skin’s “repair time”.

4. Water
Drinking enough water keeps your skin well hydrated and that makes wrinkles much less noticeable. What’s more, it also increases blood flow and reduces toxins in the body. It is a key to keeping your skin healthy.

5. Exfoliation
Scrubbing the skin has many benefits. It not only removes dead skin cells allowing better elimination of toxins out of it, it also increases the blood circulation that brings all the nutrients to it. If that was not enough, a body scrub also leaves the skin smoother, decreasing the appearance of cellulite. Combine a body scrub with massage and its effects will triple!

Dear Esteemed Clients,
We wanted to inform you that we will be updating our prices gradually starting February 19th to ensure our services remain in line with current economic conditions. This process will be completed before March 1st.
Here’s a summary of the upcoming changes:
* Appointment Prices: Appointments booked before the price update, whether fixed or flexible, will be honored at the price quoted upon booking. If our system updates prices before your appointment, your therapist will ensure the correct pricing is applied based on your booking record.
* Loyalty Packages: While the prices of our loyalty packages will be updated, your existing package will remain unaffected. You can continue enjoying the benefits of your package until your credits expire or are fully utilized.
* Gift Cards: The prices of our gift cards will also be adjusted. If you have purchased or received a gift card before the price update, there may be an additional amount to pay to match our new prices. However, rest assured that gift card amounts will always be used as credit towards any session.
We appreciate your understanding and support as we strive to maintain the quality you expect from Massage Sense.
