In the quest for beauty, we typically turn to skincare products. While there’s no doubt that topical products can be effective, they do have their limitations. Taking a natural and holistic approach to caring for ourselves will not only help us improve our skin, it will also help us age well and maintain good health.
For founder of Bare Beauty Helen Mulloy Reid, well being has always played an important part in her life. A beauty and holistic body therapist, make up artist and yoga teacher, she is also a mum of four and granny of three. Trained at the Mary Reid international school of beauty in Edinburgh, Helen also received facial training in Paris and worked at various spa venues throughout the UK before setting up Bare Beauty in the spa city of Bath, six years ago. Having recently returned to North Berwick, she has now opened her beauty studio in the grounds of her home.
Both beauty and body trained as well as a qualified yoga teacher in body and face, Helen very much believes in the well worn cliché; ‘your health is your true wealth’. She explains; “Some time and space created in your life to care for yourself is so incredibly important. I’m passionate about promoting a holistic approach to caring for your face and body. I love my working world and feel proud of what I have created by staying true to my beauty values and vision for Bare Beauty.”
A holistic approach simply means looking at and treating something as a whole, and not just parts of it. The underlying philosophy is that these parts are interrelated and interdependent – balance, and therefore, health can only be achieved if all the parts are working properly. It means looking for the causes as opposed to simply just treating symptoms. For Helen, this is key to her natural and holistic approach to facial and body rejuvenation. She adds; “I’m really interested in how my clients live their lives. I offer tips, pointers and advice to help, especially with regards to skin care. Your skin often reflects what’s going on inside, and it can be tricky for women, in particular, dealing with adult onset acne, rosacea, hormonal breakouts, menopausal effects, a problematic complexion and so on.”
