Face The Food

By Jo Phillips

Skin care has been around for centuries and for many years the food we eat has also been used as part of daily skin care regimens. We didn’t exactly put Avacardo directly on our face, but things like coffee grinds have been used in body scrubs, coconut oil an alternative for frying has been utilized for its moisturising benefits and salt for added taste in our food is of course also a natural exfoliator. In a new collection from Sanctuary Spa, the mind is fed as well as the skin; it’s like your skin gets a few of its six a day, find out more in Face the Food.

The art of face care began to find its way towards self-love in the late 1970s to the early 1980s, with much thanks due, to the early spa brands.

Holistic skincare brand Sanctuary Spa has a wonderful heritage that current lovers of the brand may well not know. All based on a love story it was opened in 1977 nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden by a man madly in love with his ballerina wife. The Spa was a place of pure tranquillity where the ballerinas of the Royal Opera House, would retreat to relax, unwind & recover.

Its’ global reputation as one of the earliest health spas with one of the finest reputations for excellent facilities and treatments meant permanently booked up treatments with famous faces seen at the spa including Joan Collins, Debbie Harry, Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Emma Thompson to name but a few. It was also a hub for friends and small groups to meet and relax in its spa pool, heat and steam room Koi Carpe Lounge, mani-pedi rooms and 40 treatment areas, whilst supported by an A La Carte restaurant and then its own line of products that came in 1988.

The concept of feeding minds and our skin has been part and parcel of what the ethos of the brand and its newest collection gives to its heritage and opens up a new selection of products
