There’s a new, all-natural whole body wellness center in Warrenton.
Bella Vita Skincare & Spa is now open for business at 92 Main St.. The spa offers facials, body contouring (or wraps), waxing, massage, Alexander technique training, acu-yoga and professional mineral make-up services. Owner Susan Royston has more than three decades of experience in the beauty industry, and a passion for natural skincare.
“For me the most gratifying aspects of being an Aesthetician are the emotional, spiritual and physically therapeutic benefits I provide my clients,” said Royston.
Beauty treatments are often made with harmful chemicals that may provide short-term results, but at Bella Vita the long-term health of the skin is of the utmost importance.
“Bella Vita Skincare takes a holistic and customized approach to skincare and whole body health,” said Royston. “Because our skin is the ultimate timekeeper, recording so much about our lifestyles, our products and hair removal services are a treasure of beneficial properties from essential oils, fruit and marine extracts, vitamins and amino acids working together to uphold the skin, fight imperfections and maintain youth.”
Royston uses Yon-Ka skincare products, because she says they naturally enrich the skin.
Even the wax that Royston uses is less harmful than the average sugar or honey-based waxes. She uses an organic soy-based wax that only adheres to the hair, not the skin. This wax does not leave your skin looking red and inflamed, because it does not tear the skin.
According to Royston, Bella Vita’s philosophy is “results without compromise.” She believes that her clients can look and feel beautiful without the use of chemicals that can be damaging in the long-term.
Lisa Yarbrough, Bella Vita’s assistant manager and makeup artist will soon be offering natural mineral makeup services to clients.
She uses Youngblood mineral makeup, which is made of “pure, natural minerals for weightless, breathable coverage.”
The makeup is paraben free, vegan, cruelty free, talc free, and environmentally responsible.
“These products were born out of need, by Pauline Youngblood, who was a paramedical esthetician. She worked around plastic surgeons and noticed all the many different kinds of skin conditions caused by traditional harsh makeup formulas,” said Yarbrough.
All of the Bella Vita employees wear Youngblood makeup, because of its beneficial properties.
Royston says that she is trying to “incorporate whole-body wellness” at Bella Vita. On top of skin care, a few different massage therapists that all have a different focus are available depending on what the client requests.
Debbie Romero is an Alexander Technique teacher at Bella Vita. She says that the Alexander Technique is “an intelligent way to solve common movement problems that cause chronic pain and stress.”
Romero said that instead of simply making her clients feel better with a message, she gives them the tools to continue to feel better in their daily lives.
“It brings your awareness into making some postural habits that may not be serving you very well or causing you pain,” she said. “I give you tools and teach different ways to use yourself to bring in ease and be pain free.”
