At times we forget the skin is a living organ. It does not care if it is aesthetically pleasing. Its sole function is to protect us from the harsh outside environment, to regulate our temperature and to act as a touch receptor. In order to keep the skin healthy, it requires both internal and external nourishment to prevent malnutrition.
Good skincare is not a DIY job. The beauty and skincare industry are saturated. It can be overwhelming to know what is suitable and beneficial for your skin. Your skincare (just like your skin), is unique and should adapt and change as your life does; a product that you used in your 20’s may not be what your skin requires in your 40’s.
As Urba skincare therapists our goal is to improve the skin function and achieve optimal skin health. The skin is extraordinarily complex. We continuously re-educate and train to understand the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of the skin in order to educate our clients on how best to treat their skin. We do not believe in a one size fits all, quick fix, or magic cream that will make all your skin concerns completely disappear. We strive to improve the health of the skin long-term with a superior holistic, nutritional and topical approach.
We work with the finest doctor-led, skincare companies including Environ, DMK, Circadia, Cosmedix, Ultraceuticals and Image, all of whom have skin health as their core foundation. Unlike over-the-counter cosmetic brands, these companies combine the highest quality refined botanicals, peptides and pharmaceutical grade ingredients that are designed to be recognised and work synergistically with the chemistry of the skin. We exclude unnecessary harmful parabens, additives and artificial dyes and fragrances.
We are capable of revising skin conditions ranging from acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis to photodamage and pigmentation by treating them at their root source. We focus not only on improving the visual appearance of the skin, but also the structure and functional performance of the skin.
Skincare is an investment into the long-term health of your skin but certainly doesn’t mean you have to break the bank! We maintain a non-judgemental, pressure-free environment and will always customise an individual homecare plan based on your skin conditions, goals, budget and lifestyle.
As an Urba skin client you become part of the family. We are here to advise, support, encourage and give you the odd push in order to achieve your skin goals.
