HELP! I’m a woman and I've got whiskers!  Hair doesn’t always behave, and often appears in places where we don’t want it. But why is it on my chin? First a little background... Did you know we’re born with every hair follicle we’ll ever have? And did you know those hair follicles are distributed all over our body – except for our feet and hands (unless, you’re a hobbit).   And over time our baby hair (known as vellus hair) turns into terminal hair (our thick, coarser hair) usually visible on our head, pubic area and underarms.

Then you need to get glowing… Here are a number of our targeted treatment programs designed to revitalise, repair and restore your skin that are safe, effective and work. During the height of Australia's summer, your skin constantly struggles against sun, salt, chlorine, hot wind and extremes of heat.
