The beauty world can be a heady whirl of contradictory information, and with the overwhelming amount of skincare options we can find ourselves inevitably wanting a less is more approach. So if you’re looking to treat your skin in the healthiest way possible, here are the best organic spas and facialists Sydney has to offer.
381 Oxford St, Paddington
Jeannie Burke first opened Venustus more than 30 years ago – long before natural and organic skincare was a trend. You’re likely to be asked what crystals you would like to be used during your treatment session rather then what active ingredients comprise your skincare routine. Taking inspiration from the elements and incorporating facial techniques from all over the world, Venustus facials alternate between the use of hot rocks and cryotherapy frozen tools with soothing facial and upper body massages. A holistic facial for the mind, body and spirit.
Luna Beauty & Apothecary
545A Bourke St, Surry Hills
Nestled in a quiet corner of busy Surry Hills, Luna Beauty & Apothecary is the brainchild naturopath and beauty therapist Faye Halkitis. Beginning each facial with a skin nutrition consultation, Halkitis believes in a ‘whole person’ approach to skin health, with an emphasis on organic skin care and wellness to nourish the body and soul. Aiming to improve skin over time through lifestyle and dietary changes, Luna Beauty & Apothecary facials are a treatment that’s more then just skin deep.
32B Burton St, Darlinghurst
Located just moments away from Sydney’s Oxford Street, Vaia beauty is a zen sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of one of Sydney’s busiest strips. Specialising in holistic skincare, Vaia combines naturopathy, organic skincare, modern technology and ancient techniques to heal the skin from the inside out, all while providing clients with a luxurious and all round rejuvenating experience.
Shop 7, No. 1 Martin Place, Sydney
Boasting more then 100 locations across Australia, Endota Spa offer a wide range of treatments for a variety of skin concerns, all a stones throw away from almost anywhere in Australia. Whether you’re opting for an entirely organic, holistic facial or a more targeted treatment using light therapy, hydro-microdermabrasion or a glycolic peel, Endota provides both a relaxing experience and real results.
Specialising in Eastern remedial therapies, Fumi Yamamoto’s Zen Facial is more of a healing experience then a one-off beauty treatment. A non-product based facial, Zen Facial relies on diagnostic yoga, Zen Shiatsu, meridian therapy, aromatherapy, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, reflexology and neurological re-patterning to help achieve a more smoother and lifted appearance. Rather then just treating the face, Zen Facial works on the whole body, to relieve tension and stress locked in the face. Truly a facial like no other.
