45 minutes. This one-on-one virtual skin coaching session with Rachel Devine is custom-tailored to your individual needs. Once we chat about your skin and your skin goals, we will determine the steps involved in achieving those goals. A home care routine will be curated and depending on the appointment option that you select and will include anything from a minimalistic product routine, face massage techniques, reflexology points for you to work on and/or lifestyle habits to help balance your body. This consultation will give you a better understanding of your skin from within.Diving Deeper
I have spent the past several years of my career studying the skin from an internal, whole body, holistic approach. Having training and certifications in organic skin care formulations, several advanced facial and neck massage techniques and holistic modalities, my focus is to teach you how to stimulate your skin’s natural processes in order to encourage it to function optimally, creating healthy, clear, radiant skin that will age gracefully without the need for any trendy, unnatural skin care techniques.
The human body is extremely intricate and is designed to always strive for perfect balance within. However, improper products, stress, diet, lack of movement, and poor sleeping habits can dramatically interrupt this innate ability.External vs Internal Skin Care
The skin is our largest organ, enveloping our entire body, protecting it from the external world, while also helping to regulate our body temperature. Because it is our shield from the external world, the beauty industry misleads us by making us believe that healthy skin comes solely from topical products, but this way of marketing couldn’t be further from the truth.
When you look at the above diagram of the skin, you can see how intricate the skin actually is. And far beyond this diagram, every single system in the body communicates with this delicate organ and vice versa. The lymphatic system, circulatory system, nervous system, digestive system, urinary system, muscular system… they each play a vital role in skin health and are all interconnected. When once system is out of balance, the others will eventually follow and also become imbalanced.
This consultation will not so much be focused on what you see externally, but rather on what’s occurring beneath your skin’s surface. Using advanced massage, and high quality plant-based products, we will work to stimulate each layer of the skin. The head is the main control centre of our body, and the face is connected to every single area of our body through the nervous system. By massaging the face, we create a deeply healing experience that, even though it is performed on the face, will have lasting healing effects on your entire body.Massage Techniques
