Getting your winter skin from BLAH to YAY in Five Easy Steps

2019-07-25T05:53:35+00:00

Winter -It’s a time of reflection and observation. As the weather cools, more time is spent inside and there’s a tendency to slow life down. It’s a period of nurturing and the perfect opportunity for bit of me-time. But did you know Winter challenges the skin more than any other season, so it is very important to give it extra care and attention over the next few months. And did you know that if the temperature drops below 8 degrees, our sebaceous glands dramatically slow production of sebum (or oil), or can stop completely? A lack of sebum weakens the barrier [...]

The Dynamic Duo – LED (Non Thermal Light) and Hyaluronic Acid

2019-08-06T06:38:35+00:00

On 20 May 2019 I had head and neck surgery to remove part of my lower jaw. Without going into all the gory details, I was left with a significant scar (requiring 30 staples) the full length of my neck. Combine this with post-surgical oedema and my face, to be totally honest, looked a little rough. My mission… To find a suitable treatment program to help reduce my scar that was not going to comprise to my surgery. Research led me to a combination of treatments that helps restore, heal and stimulate scar (and by default) rejuvenation. And these treatments are... [...]

#10 Is your Skin Sensitive Or Sensitised?

2019-07-26T03:24:25+00:00

It’s interesting, we often see guests who advise they’ve sensitive skin. Or, do they? When we start to look further, we often find that our response is… “You don’t have sensitive skin, but your skin has become sensitised.” So, what’s the difference? Well, there’s a big difference between the two. Just like dry, oily, or combination skin, sensitive skin is something you’re born with. It doesn’t just happen. Usually, sensitive skin people have fair complexions that flush easily or swell a bit to the touch. They may even get red or blotchy for no apparent reason. That’s why skincare and make-up [...]

#9 Why your skin pores are not like garage doors…

2019-04-05T05:17:18+00:00

Open skin pores would be one of the most common skin concerns and affect all skin types and all ages. Unfortunately, they're not like garage doors – they don’t automatically open and shut. You see, there are no muscles controlling your pores and they need to remain open to allow you to sweat, get rid of dirt and grime, and keep your lipid barrier healthy. Your lipid barrier is made of sebum (a beautiful cocktail of triglycerides, wax esters, squalene, and metabolites of fat-producing cells). Sebum is essential in keeping our skin waterproof and lubricated. A healthy and balanced lipid barrier [...]

#7 Do I really need an exfoliant?

2019-02-26T05:54:25+00:00

Well, do you… Want smoother brighter skin? Want to get your skin glowing again? Want to reduce breakout? Want to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles? YES! YES! YES! YES! Then you need to consider the dynamic duo of skin ingredients - Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs). These leave on liquid exfoliants should be the cornerstone of your skin care program. Why? Young, healthy skin sheds build-up dead skin each day but as we age and with the added day to day exposure to sun and pollution this natural ability to exfoliate becomes faulty. But I use [...]

Are you using your face cleanser to remove your eye makeup? Or even worse, not at all? Big Mistake!

#6 Do I Really Need Eye Cream?

2019-02-13T03:19:52+00:00

There are many reasons why you may think you don’t need an eye cream… You may think your daily moisturiser will do the trick (it won’t), that skin is skin – the eye area is no different to the rest of my face (it is) and I get Botox so there’s no need (yes, there is). Let’s start with the skin around the eye area. Your eye area is one of the first areas to show signs of premature ageing (hello, Botox) – fine lines and wrinkles appear due to squinting and constant movement.  Plus, your skin is more fragile, finer [...]

#1 Are you old before your time?

2019-01-15T20:14:25+00:00

Did you know your body naturally produces 300 billion cells every day? Now that’s WOW! But there’s a downside… After the age of 30, the quality of those cells starts deteriorating and this is when we can see the beginnings of ageing skin. Genetics (or intrinsic ageing) accounts for 30% of your skin’s ageing. (Yes, you can blame Mum and Dad). The other 70% of ageing occurs from environmental (or extrinsic) factors. Those factors include... Sun Exposure Pollution Smoking Incorrect Skin Care Perfume Makeup (when not removed correctly) And unfortunately, our Australian lifestyle can accelerate our ageing. In fact, a recent [...]
