To get glowing skin at home use Aveda’s Tourmaline Charged Radiance system. Finely powered Tourmaline is a naturally energizing mineral that helps re-energize skin’s natural radiance and is 99% naturally derived – leaving your skin soft & glowing.



Beautiful berry shades are everywhere from nails to lips this season, it’s all about the sheer washes of berry colour. Lips stained in petal and berry hues are the best way to perk up your natural make-up look. For rosy lips try Aveda’s Uruku Colour Gloss in Berry or Lip Colour in Sutra.


Personalised Wellness

There is a big emphasis just now on personalised wellness, which is set to grow. Spas are not just about pampering, our spa therapists are wellness providers. We are becoming more immersed in looking after ourselves & we are taking a proactive approach into improving our physical & mental health. At James Dun’s House our spa treatments activate the body’s relaxation response. From the moment a guest enters our spa, every experience is designed to stimulate the nervous system – helping the body relax and heal itself. Rituals decrease stress through aroma, touch & breathing, to create an experience that lingers – on skin and in heart.

Organic & Natural

2014-Miranda-Kerr-Hairstyles-Brown-Long-Wavy-HairThanks to stars like Miranda Kerr & Jessica Alba, there’s a rise in people wanting natural treatments & products. Aveda is 95% naturally derived.

The Green Ingredient Promise at Aveda – they continually strive to increase their use of naturally derived ingredients, i.e. those in which more than 50% of the molecule comes from a plant, non-petroleum mineral, or other natural source, like water. Aveda set other standards for use, too, like avoiding certain types of processing.

Aveda’s standards have made them a pioneer in the green cosmetics world: now more than 90% of their essential oils and 89% of  raw herbal ingredients are certified organic.

At James Dun’s House Spa in Glasgow & Aberdeen we offer all the Aveda facial & body treatments, as well as retailing all the Aveda Skin & Body products.
