Our mission is to help people achieve healthy skin by enabling clients to better understand what is happening internally. By identifying the root cause of any skin complaint, we endeavour to provide methods to achieve optimum health naturally from the inside out.
WHAT TO EXPECT
re:lax skincare treatments are tailored to the client, hard working and deliciously relaxing.
Our approach to skincare is results driven, sustainable, and suitable for all skins. Consultation is of the utmost importance to us, as well as aftercare to ensure you see results.
We use a combination natural products, holistic methods such as gua sha, facial massage, buccal massage and facial reflexology and high performance methods such as led light therapy, high frequency and cosmetic acupuncture to create the perfect experience for you and your skin.
Katie White is a nutritional therapist (mBANT), holistic therapist, and skin coach (BABTAC) based in East London. She founded her company re:lax in 2016 with a mission to help people to achieve happy, healthy skin, while avoiding harsh topical treatments,
pharmaceuticals, or expensive and invasive treatments.
While she was working for a premium skincare company, Katie started to experience her own skin troubles. When she tried to find a solution, she was left feeling disappointed with the available solutions: the expensive and impersonal product and treatment packages offered by salons; the mainstream brands with flashy marketing campaigns, but limited active ingredients in their products; and the worrying cocktail of antibiotics, contraceptive pills and harsh topical solutions handed out by doctors.
This inspired her to retrain as a nutritionist and holistic therapist, in order to offer a service that uses a three-pronged approach of natural high-performance products, nutritional therapy, and lifestyle advice for long-lasting healthy skin.
"Really relaxing facial and my skin is still glowing 5 days later! Katie was lovely and provided lots of helpful advice around nutrition and recommendations for skincare.She also sent a helpful follow up email with all the details. I would definitely recommend!!"
