Paloma Belle Hydrating Facial

Paloma Belle

I recently received a Paloma Belle facial at SensAbility, the teaching clinic for Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics. Paloma Belle is a results-oriented skincare line developed by AIA skincare experts. It aligns with the school’s values of sustainability and ethical sourcing. The skin care line relies heavily on organic botanicals and ingredients derived from plant sources. Paloma Belle is available exclusively at the Sensibility Spa and Faces by Kina, an AIA graduate Skincare Boutique.

The facial, given by Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics student and soon to be graduate, Megan Thomas, was incredibly soothing. My skin welcomed the moisture-rich products along with Megan’s gift of touch. The integrity and quality of the products were evident by the creamy consistency and the array of sweet and earthy aromas. The vast range of nutrient-rich botanical ingredients offer anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, improve the elasticity of the skin, stimulate cellular growth, hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The super hydrating facial included:

aloe-barberae-300Cleanser: Aloe Vera & Moroccan Rose Milk 

Featured ingredients include Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice (Aloe barbadensis) calms irritation and hydrates the skin due to its high content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes.

Moroccan Rose (Rosa damascena) has astringent and cooling properties. It balances skin function as well as smoothes the texture of the skin.

Coconut Oil Surfactant (Sodium cocoamphoacetate) super gentle foaming agent that effectively breaks down oil and dirt, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.

Wheat Protein perfect for softening the skin, increasing moisture and hydration as well as firming and reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Rosemary Leaf Distillate (Rosmarinus officinalis) offers the same oil balancing, clarifying, toning and magnifying properties as rosemary essential oil.

Cucumber Fruit Extract (Cucumis sativus) has sulfur and potassium which remineralizes the skin. Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice (Aloe barbadensis) calms irritation and hydrates the skin due to its high content of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes.

 Exfoliant: Banana & Bilberry Enzyme  bilberry-circle-300

This triple action exfoliant containing lactic acid, salicylic acid, and papain removes dulling surface debris and leaves skin noticeably smoother and brighter.

Banana Fruit Puree (Musa sapientum) is fermented in order to create amylase, a proteolytic enzyme perfect for exfoliation. Is high in Vitamins C, A, B6 and B12, all beneficial nutrients for the skin. It also has moisturizing and softening properties for the skin.

Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) contains lactic and malic acids which are alpha hydroxyl acids. It has astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. It is very high in a potent antioxidant called anthocyanin; that also acts as a flavonoid which strengthens capillaries.

Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid used to treat comedones, papules and pustules. It is anti-inflammatory and has a keratolytic effect.

Papain (Vasconcellea cundinamarcensis) is a protease enzyme that comes from papaya. It helps to slough off dead surface cells and soften debris trapped in the pores.

Moisture Mask: Avocado & Hyaluronic Acid

This luxurious cream mask contains the super-moisturizing properties of Hyaluronic acid. It smoothes wrinkles and fine lines with a slight “plumping” action.

Featured ingredients include Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima) moisturizes and alleviates dry skin. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E. It helps to maintain collagen and soothes the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) is a fantastic humectant used to hydrate and plump the skin. It helps to enhance the benefits of other moisturizing ingredients and maintains collagen.

mango-circle-300Moisturizer: Mango Butter & Grape Seed Cream 

This velvety cream contains a natural blend of five oils to increase elasticity and prevent dryness. Superior moisturizing properties will infuse the skin, plumping fine lines and leaving a youthful glow.

Mango Butter Seed Oil (Mangifera indica) is very emollient which allows it to act as a fantastic moisturizer and skin softening agent. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Grapeseed Oil (Vitis vinifera) is a light silky oil that moisturizes the skin. It is high in linoleic, oleic, palmitic and stearic acids; all beneficial nutrients for the skin.

Olive Oil (Olea europaea) is a rich plant oil containing the essential fatty acids of oleic, palmitic, and linoleic acid. It also has the benefits of Vitamins E and A; powerful antioxidants. This is one of the best moisturizing agents for dry and parched skin.

Eye Cream: Marine & Wild Yam

This moisturizing and anti-aging eye cream minimizes fine lines with a phytosteroid complex of marine extracts and wild yam.

Bladderwrack is brown algae that is high in minerals that help to moisturize the skin and maintain elasticity. It is also anti-inflammatory.

Sea Salt Ferment (Saccharomyces Biomin) is a strain of yeast fermented with sea salts, rendering mineral rich peptides that prevent the breakdown of collagen.

Wild Yam Root Extract (Dioscorea villosa) has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that benefit dry and mature skin.

Cocoa Seed Butter (Theobroma cacao) contains oleic, palmitic and stearic acid that are fatty acids with antioxidant properties. It protects against oxidative stress, is anti-inflammatory, protects against irritation and is moisturizing.

These are only a few of the Paloma Belle products available. There is a wide range of options for all skin types. I recommend scheduling a facial at SensAbility and your student esthetician can guide you towards an optimal skincare regime and the best products for you.
