Beauty From Within: The Four Pillars of a Natural Glow

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” ~ Rumi

Beauty is not just skin deep; it is soul deep. To find that true natural glow, we must travel beyond the surface….

Supporting skin health from the inside out begins with recognising and acknowledging our current state. Let us explore beauty through the Four Pillars of JOALI BEING: Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy. For each pillar, we offer key insights and recommend treatments available at our nature immersive wellbeing island retreat.

 

MIND

Long-term stress, anxiety and depression can manifest as skin problems like acne, rosacea, itching, psoriasis, eczema, dryness and wrinkles. The regular practice of yoga, meditation and breathwork can significantly improve the appearance of skin and facial expressions.

Suggested treatments at JOALI BEING:

  • Shirodhara: A therapeutic treatment to soothe the hypothalamus and regulate the activity of the pituitary gland, thereby treating insomnia and anxiety.
  • Watsu: A hydro-bodywork treatment that combines massage, joint mobilisation, shiatsu, stretching and dance. The gentle feeling of being afloat, merged with the nurturing support provided by your therapist, allows for healing on many levels.
  • Mind Therapy: A relaxing treatment to promote mental peace. A traditional blend of warm myrrh, frankincense and lavender oils nourishes the hair, while a head, neck, and shoulder massage releases stress. Reflexology points on the hands and feet are stimulated to ease tension.
  • Sound Healing: A healing harmony of music and vibration at Seda, our Sound Therapy Hall. Restore inner balance through a melodious journey using 14 unique instruments developed by a visionary sound scientist.

 

MICROBIOME

Imbalances in gut bacteria contribute to the development of skin conditions like acne, dandruff, blemishes and even eczema. Both acne and eczema are inflammatory skin conditions, and inflammation occurs when the immune system is fighting bad bacteria.

At our luxury wellness retreat in the Maldives, expert nutritionists and naturopaths can guide you towards gut-healing protocols to improve your microbiome health.

Suggested treatments at JOALI BEING:

  • Personalised diet plan: A custom-made nutrition programme for optimal skin health, tailored to your food habits and overall wellbeing goals. Our resident Nutritionist meets each guest for an in-depth nutrition consultation, including a 3-D Fitness & Alignment Analysis.
  • Microbiome Therapy: A serene full-body massage using long, gentle movements to create a feeling of connection and flow. A gentle abdominal massage with ginger, pomegranate and clary sage essential oils helps to strengthen microbiome health.
  • Herbology Workshop: An all-natural approach to beauty. At AKTAR, our inspiring herbology centre, guests can learn to make their own natural cosmetics and skincare products – from a rose facial elixir and tonic mist, to herbal body scrubs.

 

SKIN

Being aware of your skin’s unique qualities is the first step to creating an effective treatment plan and home care routine. At JOALI BEING, our ultra-advanced skin scanner analyses numerous aspects of skin: pigmentation, sensitivity, oiliness, wrinkles, facial redness & capillaries, and enlarged pores & blackheads.

Equipped with a thorough, accurate and personalised assessment, guests can start to renew their skin health.

Suggested treatments at JOALI BEING:

  • Triple Peel Facial A powerful triple peel facial that combines with acupressure techniques to provide an instant lift. End with a gemstone-infused collagen face mask for beautiful skin and a glowing spirit.
  • Medi-Luxe® Facial. A comprehensive treatment combining age-reversing stem cell technology and plumping hyaluronic acid with lifting massages. A three-level peel and regenerating LED red light therapy results in visibly firmer, more youthful, and luminous skin.
  • Body Wrap. A purifying all-body treatment. Start with a detoxifying scrub, then sink into a wrap of rich minerals, trace elements and antioxidants. Conclude with a fatigue-relieving head massage using botanical essences, magnesium and seaweed.
  • Skin Therapy. A skin-loving treatment that is energising, toning and nurturing by turns. A dry brush drainage awakens your natural detoxification system, followed by an anti-cellulite massage to contour and shape the body. An immortelle essential oil massage leaves skin toned and glowing.
  • Turkish Hammam. A timeless cleansing ritual for inner calm and strength. Experience a full-body scrub with purifying ingredients like magnesium, mineral salts and seaweed oil, followed by a soap bag massage focused on areas of pain and tension. Finish with a magnesium replenishing body mask, alongside a relaxing scalp and foot treatment.

 

ENERGY

Research has proved time and again that physical activity keeps you young and vital. Daily exercise improves blood and oxygen flow, which nourishes skin cells, reduces puffiness and reverses signs of ageing by enhancing the production of collagen and elastin. Being active also treats chronic skin diseases by reducing stress hormone levels.

Suggested treatments at JOALI BEING: 

  • Cryotherapy: The therapeutic application of extreme cold promotes collagen production, which treats conditions like eczema and reverses the effects of ageing. Cryotherapy also supports skin health by treating mood disorders like anxiety and increasing antioxidant levels. Experience this therapy at our cryo:one chamber in the Maldives.
  • Yoga: An integral system developed by the sages of pre-Vedic India, designed to integrate all aspects of the individual to achieve a happy, balanced life. Explore tailormade sessions with our empathetic practitioners, including Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga, Antigravity and Restorative Yoga.

SKIN IMMERSION PROGRAMME

Our 5-12 night Skin Immersion Programme supports skin health at every step and helps reverse the impact of time, stress and pollution. The programme includes several of the elements mentioned above, along with a series of interactive learning sessions.

At our Culinary Class for Skin, guests discover the right types of foods to nourish skin from within, while Herbology Workshops at the AKTAR invite you to make natural cosmetics, balms and elixirs. A range of skin-supportive herbal teas is also available, including Green Tea & Rose to boost radiance and a bespoke White Tea infusion to reverse ageing.

The Skin Immersion Programme at our luxury wellbeing retreat is ideal for those who want to explore the connection between overall wellbeing and skin health. Suitable for all ages and lifestyle, it helps to reveal beauty from the inside out.
