Tailor made facials or special treatments that reduce oily skin or remove the redness. Owner Sara Rietman exclusively works with EmerginC.

A nice side-effect is that it’s also better for the planet like these sustainable salons in London.

BEAUTY BEWUST, Oostzaanstraat 128
This salon in Amsterdam West has a treatment for all new mums out there which we love. The Phoenix in Transition treatment is focussed on hormonal skin that needs a little different attention. While pregnant or after your pregnancy, your skin can look very different than it used to be. This is totally normal, but this treatment will help you fight pigmentation, inflammation and unwanted redness. Be aware that taking care of your skin takes time, just like working out. With the right vitamin C product by EmerginC, this will be a great way of getting your perfect skin back.
