INSIDER SECRETS TO FLAWLESS SKIN
Glowing, radiant skin is achieved not only by what we put on the skin but also from our diet + lifestyle. It can be overwhelming navigating what products are best for your skin concerns.
Founded by Kate Michelmore, one of the most respected and sought after Holistic Facialists + Educators in New Zealand, trusted by her guests and Beauty Editors alike. Kate's goal while treating clients is to help guide their skin into balance. She offers thoughtful advice on products and how to use them, as well as nutritional and supplemental suggestions that can help aid in this balancing process, which is the secret to seeing a lasting transformation.
Any facialist worth their salt can make you glow after a treatment, but Kate's aim is to bring skin into long-term balance. This means that each treatment begins with a thorough dissection of eating habits, skin-care routine, and general lifestyle and ends with detailed advice for everyday maintenance.
There’s no endless menu at her airy, laid-back studio; each client will choose from either The Intuitive or The Raw Facial. The one to two hours she spends with clients are completely customised. Everything Kate does is with intention, from each massage stroke to how the bed has been made.
You emerge radiant beyond belief and profoundly rested while enjoying a cup of naturopathic tea to calm the senses and strengthen skin from within.
Each facial is created with intention. Deep cleansing and nourishment through minerals, pure oils and extracts, flooding the skin with nutrients. Massage to stimulate circulation, promote lymphatic drainage, and gently warm the skin, so that each product can penetrate deeply and target specific muscles and points in the face.
We mindfully create a skin specific blend, unique to you and your skin. From customised serums and moisturisers, right through to weekly treatment masks and even skin nourishing foundation, full of antioxidants and vitamins. Let us guide you on your journey towards clear + luminous skin.
We believe in teaching. You’ll have moments of zen, but above all, we promise you’ll learn something about your skin. We’re thinkers, healers, and feelers.
