Pores: Wells of Oil Enriching Your Skin
Like it or not, there's a lot of oil and dead skin cells on your face right now. This mixture constantly travels up hair follicles under your skin and out through holes in the surface. Yet this isn't a bad thing. In fact, the oil and skin cells actually protect your skin from bacteria and keep it moisturized. It may sound like the perfect breeding ground for acne, but this environment doesn't cause you to break out. Rather, it's when this mixture of oil and cells can't get_ out—when the pores get clogged—that breakouts occur.
When an excess of oil and skin cells—as well as dirt, grime, or lost pennies—collects in the pores, bacteria make their way to the blockage, causing inflammation and acne. To remove this blockage and keep the pores clean, facial treatments aim to clean and loosen dry skin cells—a process known as exfoliation. Whether done manually, as in microdermabrasion or scrubs, or chemically, as in an acid peel or retinoid, exfoliation removes the debris to keep pores clear and bacteria-free. Still, such treatments should be done in moderation—too much exfoliation can strip away the otherwise healthy levels of oil and skin cells that keep skin healthy.
Gorgeously Green champions organic and sustainable products, a practice that goes hand in hand with the staff's commitment to both inner and outer beauty. That means GM Collins products for facials and Sparitual products for the body and nail care. But the products would be of little help without skilled practitioners to apply them, and the staff at Gorgeously Green—aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians—does so with aplomb. They apply organic facials that relaxing and nourish skin, mani-pedis that keep nails well-groomed, and organic blow-outs that give hair an infusion of style. On the inner-beauty side of things, massages—in the form of hot stone, aromatherapy, and Swedish treatments—melt stress like butter on a hot rock.
