How the right Facial can transform sensitive skin

Sarah Brown is the founder of Pai Skincare. Entrepreneur, mum and sensitive-skinned soul – trying to find time to practice more of what she preaches…

For the average beauty lover, an intensive hour-long Facial is the ultimate treat.

For the average sensitive skin sufferer however, it’s a whole different ball game – with over 91% reluctant to pay for a Facial they fear could irritate them.

Imelda Burke, owner of organic boutique CONTENT, explains why:

A bad experience with products that are not suited to sensitive skin can put you off for life.

But in reality, with the correct products, a monthly facial is ideal for calming sensitive skin.

The massage combined with a holistic approach helps to soothe inflammation, reducing the redness often associated with sensitive skin.”

As a sensitive skin sufferer myself I completely understand the Facial fear.

When my urticaria first set in I was forever being told a Facial would help, only to come out of the spa 2 hours later itchy, sore and red in the face!

That’s why I’ve spent the past two years developing Pai’s debut range of Facial treatments.

The high-performance ingredients and ultra-gentle techniques will restore your confidence in Facials and your sensitive skin.

What makes Pai Facials different?


Even robust skin can feel tender and tight after a particularly potent facial.

This is because the effects of any harsh or irritating ingredients are heightened during a Facial, as:

  1. more product than usual is applied
  2. it’s applied for longer
  3. it’s repeatedly driven deep into the epidermis.

That’s why Pai have carefully selected only the purest plant extracts with proven therapeutic benefits for sensitive skin.

These include:

  1. Lotus water, which inhibits the molecules that cause skin to react.
  2. Perilla oil, which enhances skin elasticity and eliminates facial redness.
  3. Hypo-allergenic Ghassoul clay, which protects the skin’s essential moisture levels while drawing out impurities.


For those of you not quite ready to face the Acupuncture needles, Pai’s expert Facials harness the calming and restorative power of its sister technique, Acupressure.

Acupressure massage applies gentle-moderate pressure on key facial Acupoints.

These actions stimulate circulation, remove toxins and restore balance to the skin, and are therefore ideal for treating sensitive and stressed complexions.

Rest & Relaxation

Acupressure massage forms a wider sensitive skin-specific massage routine designed to calm skin from within.

This deeply relaxing routine expels the hot and tight energy of reactive skin.

As stress is one of the primary cause of Eczema, Acne and Rosacea, Pai’s expert massage eases existing flares and prevents them recurring again in the near future.
