Like other facials, having a back facial is relaxing. What is a back facial I hear you ask - well, it's a treatment for people who suffer from acne or have dry itchy dry skin on their back.

With the summer around the corner, and holidays on the horizon, many people suffer from this and as it's such a hard-to-reach area, a back facial gives great results and can solve this for you.

It's a good idea to have one before a special event such as a wedding or a holiday.

There are huge benefits to a back facial. The treatment consists of using Sothys Deep Cleansing Cleanser. The area is exfoliated with an enzymatic exfoliator consisting of glycolic acid, clearing out the blocked pores, which tighten the pore size using an astringent action. A steamer is then applied using ozone action for its anti-bacterial properties. Your skin will be super cleansed and on the way to healing. It's also suitable for anyone with dry skin. The final stage of the back facial is the mask, and depending on your skin type the appropriate mask is applied.

Easing tension

The treatment works directly on your back and your muscles will feel tension releasing. Areas like your neck and shoulders and mid section of your back will benefit from the massaging movements. The treatment uses essential oils that soften and moisturise your skin and nutrients are absorbed by the skin's lower layers.

This will help to reduce acne and make you look and feel great. It is great for skin bumps and pustules as well as pimples and zits that arise from exercise, eating the wrong foods, or just about any other condition.

The overall result will leave your back feeling smooth and looking clear so that you can confidently wear backless tops or swimwear. Continual care to your back and treatments will help diminish blemishes, scars and dark spots.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and local volunteers are keen to not only raise awareness but also funds.

Kathrina Breen, Eleanor O’Doherty and Kathleen O’Shea who have been supporting the Irish Cancer Society for many years are delighted to be able to get back to their Pink Ribbon street collection in Killarney town next Friday (October 7).

They are the only group in the country doing the collection as many fundraisers have moved online since the pandemic struck.

“We’re the only town in Ireland doing it this year,” Kathrina, who feels it’s important to keep a street collection going, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We haven’t done it in two years since before COVID. I pushed to do it as it raises a lot of money. People have been supporting this for years, this money goes towards breast detection equipment, information leaflets in doctors surgeries and towards cancer grants.”

In 2021, donations helped 254 breast cancer patients with free transport to and from 2,380 chemotherapy appointments by volunteer drivers, 154 patients received 514 nights of end-of-life care from Night Nurses and 3,430 enquiries were made about breast cancer through the Freephone Support Line 1800 200 700 and at 13 Daffodil Centres across the country.

And she added that they’re looking for a few volunteers to help out on the day.

“If anyone would like to help they can contact me on 087 2612992.”

There are calls to make two vacant properties on Rock Road available to Kerry County Council’s housing inventory.

The two cottages, one either side of the entrance to St Finan’s Hospital, are vacant for some time.
Cllr Maura Healy-Rae raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.

“Regarding two vacant houses at the entrance to St Finan’s on Rock Road which appear to be vacant for a significant period of time. One of the properties is in the ownership of the HSE. I requested that Kerry County Council would liaise with the HSE with a view to potentially acquiring this house,” she told the Killarney Advertiser after the meeting.

“I stressed that it is important that the local authority exhaust all possibilities when it comes to providing more houses, particularly properties located within the town of Killarney where the need and demand for housing is critical.”

Kerry County Council said it would get the Vacant Homes Officer to contact the owner of the privately owned bungalow.

“They will inform the property owner that there is funding available under various schemes and grants to aid the return of this property to habitable use. Such schemes include the Repair and Lease Scheme and the recently launched Croí Cónaithe vacant property grant,” said a Council official.

Cllr Healy-Rae added: “I requested that KCC would liaise with the HSE with a view to potentially acquiring this house.”
