What is Holistic Face Care?

May 31st, 2015

Holistic face care is the overall natural approach to caring for skin: inside and out.  When one chooses this path to a radiant and ageless complexion they consider what they put in their bodies as well as what they apply topically to achieve this result.  Renowned day spas in NYC, such Joanna Vargas Skincare Sanctuary, have addressed innumerable dermal issues with this thorough method of non-invasive care.  Their celebrity and professional clientele have sought out these types treatments as an alternative to cosmetic surgery and chemical-laden products.

A combination of healthy diet, traditionally proven botanical ingredients used in a daily face care routine and professional therapies can all enhance the skin’s appearance.  In fact, Dr. Alan Dattner, a dermatologist in New York, stresses the importance of this method of care to:

• avoid side effects of unnecessary pharmaceuticals

• treat conditions western medicine can’t

• avoid toxic chemicals

• assist the body to heal instead of assaulting it

• find lasting solutions rather than cover-ups


A Nutrient Rich Daily Serum

Joanna Vargas, celebrated skincare guru, was inspired to create a serum that brings all the nourishing antioxidant potency of a green juice to a daily face care regime.  The Daily Serum is an ideal combination of rejuvenating ingredients, vitamins and minerals essential for an ageless complexion. This feather weight serum hydrates thoroughly and improves firmness and elasticity so skin is noticeably resilient.

Galactoarabinan (GA) is a key component in the Daily Serum that has been proven through clinical trials. It is a naturally derived ingredient that is sourced from the Larch tree, native to North America.  Scientific research has found that GA intensifies cell regeneration for younger and more vibrant skin.

So the Skin Can Breathe…

Oxygen Purifying Facial is a therapeutic treatment that involves spraying 98% pure oxygen into the skin’s surface. The fine mist is infused with a serum that contains all the  nutrients and antioxidants that repel free radical damage.  In tandem with a nourishing serum oxygen can also boost collagen and elastin production to repair the skin at a cellular level.  The results are dramatically visible: improved elasticity and firmness with minimized fine lines and wrinkles, so your skin will have a silky flawless texture.

Joanna’s Green Juice

When imbibing a nourishing elixir, such as Joanna Vargas’ recommended green juice, loaded with vitamins and minerals, the skin radiates good health from within.  Essential vitamins A, C, and minerals like iron are easily accessible and revitalizing in a green juice that is most effective when its included within a regular routine.

Joanna says: “I love this green juice! The greens instantly hydrate the skin while encouraging lymphatic drainage, so you are de-puffed and glowing!”
