Self-Care in Sydney: Where to Find the Best Facials

Self-care might not be the answer to all of life’s problems- but it definitely can’t hurt. The wellness trend has been sweeping social media for the best part of two years when it was decided we needed to take our mental and physical wellbeing more seriously.

If you’re looking to partake in the trend or simply treat yourself to a long-overdue pamper session, a professional facial might be in order. We’ve compiled a list of eight luxurious beauty salons in Sydney that offer a range of facials, from triple cleanses to heart chakra massages and all the way to enzymatic exfoliations.

The Facial Room, Bondi Beach

Led by the renowned Fabienne Rich, the Facial Room in Bondi Beach are specialists in everything skincare. They deliver customised treatments that are tailored to each client’s skincare needs.

The clinic, which has been operating since 2009, is positioned within the hustle and bustle of Bondi Beach, so you can enjoy iconic coastal views before and after your facial.

The Fabienne Rich Radiance Facial is not to be missed and includes a triple cleanse, antibacterial steam and application of the Fabienne Rich Oxygen Mask. The result is smooth, silky and oxygenated skin, complemented by a hot towel hand and foot massage. This 75-minute facial is priced at A$180.

The Skin Bar, Double Bay

After stepping through The Skin Bar’s emerald green doors, you’ll be met by the friendly team at the Double Bay-based beauty haven who are dedicated to “redefining modern skin health”.

Although the thought of needles lightly puncturing your face might not sound like an everyday skincare regiment, needling is a trademark facial at The Skin Bar. The procedure involves forming micro-channels in the skin and triggering the body to repair itself which involves producing new collagen and elastin. The result is reduced wrinkles, lines and scarring, all from an easy 30-minute session that is recommended monthly. A full face of skin needling is currently priced at A$220 for 30 minutes.

Many of her treatments have their roots in holistic beliefs and use naturally sourced ingredients. We take an interest in the Heart Chakra Signature facial which is a fusion of a French-style facial with Eastern therapies and the trademark Jocelyn Petroni Heart Chakra massage. This facial involves a skin consult, double cleanse and lymphatic drainage, a hydration mask and a massage to slow the rhythmic pace of the heart. The Heart Chakra Facial is priced at A$300 for 60 minutes.
