What is Corneotherapy?
The main principle of Corneotherapy believes that problems manifesting on the surface layer of the skin (such as facial acne and pigmentation etc), is a reaction by the deeper layers of skin when it detects an initial breakdown of the surface layer ie. letting in toxins and bacteria. Corneotherapy is the science of restoring and maintaining healthy skin by focussing on the skin’s barrier of defence, the top layer of skin. This is what is referred to as an outside-in therapy.
At Pure Skin Clinic, we address your skin holistically, by combining correct nutrition, corneotherapeutic skin care and treatments to help to achieve healthy, beautiful skin. We believe in the 3 R’s – Repair, Replenish, Rejuvenate and follow this for all our treatments.
As a trained and registered corneotherapist, Liga works to strengthen your skin’s barrier – your first line of defence – to keep it intact and healthy. This reduces inflammation, redness, breakouts and pigmentation. She works with your skin rather than against it, meaning no harmful products or harsh treatments. When skin is at its healthiest possible state, its defence mechanism are intact and the skin behaves in a more controlled and calm way.
