SPF in Winter

Posted: 2013-02-05 10:00:00 Many people don't realise but you still need to wear SPF on your face in Winter. UVA is responsible for most of the aging process of the skin as it causes damage to the integral proteins that give the skin its strength, elasticity and plumpness. Regardless of the time of the day or season, UVA is present and can penetrate cloud cover. To protect the skin, sunscreens should be worn everyday. Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product you can invest in, we recommend SPF 30-50.  The difference between straight-up sunscreen or a tinted moisturiser enriched with SPF is an individual preference, depending on your skin type but the most important thing is that you have it on. So for any product you buy in the future think SPF.......Sun Protection Factor or Skin Plump and Flawless! He ...

You don’t have to be a celebrity to look like one!

Posted: 2012-11-20 18:00:00 I’ve always wondered what it would be like to have my own personal hairdresser and make-up artist. I wouldn’t be too greedy and have them by my side 24/7 but maybe just an hour or two each morning and I’d be happy with that! Ah but alas, reality dictates that my inner celeb needs to DIY and here are a few tips I have picked up along the way.  Glowing SkinApart from trying very hard to up the ante on: water water water, green leafy veg, and not too many choccie delights, I love using a facial oil at night-time to penetrate to the deeper layers of my skin and let it do all the work while I sleep.  There are a number of really good ones on the market but my favourite is USPA Regenerative Elixir, for that rehydrated, rejuvenated feel and for added sparkle ...

Is your Body Beach Ready?

Posted: 2012-07-20 15:00:00 I believe half the fun of going on holidays is the excitement in the lead up and having an excuse to get all sorts of treatments. Probably the most beneficial time of the year to get a body scrub is now, 1-2 weeks prior to hitting the sun. Having a good scrub in a spa or salon allows a much deeper and healthier glowing tan. An intense body exfoliation treatment aids desquamation, lifting the dead skin cells of the surface allowing new and more tan cells to form on the skin. Also a moisturizing treatment can be advisable after this for example a milk nourishing lotion or a hot oil. Yummy :)Next and most importantly in pre-holiday treatments is without a doubt, the dreaded BIKINI WAX. The waxing should always be done after the scrub and only a few days prior to the sun.Now I am her ...

Summer has Arrived!

Posted: 2012-06-06 00:00:00 It’s that time of year when we get to bare a bit more skin than usual. If you're summer plans involve a bit of jet setting or keeping it local, always remember to apply the same skin care precautions at home and abroad.  We are all well aware of the steps we have to take to keep our skin safe in the sun.  The important part is to carry them out!Everyone who spends time outdoors should be aware of the harmful UV rays.  It could be as simple as hanging up a load washing in the garden to sunning yourself on a tropical beach.You can easily find a happy medium when it comes to dealing with the effects of UV rays.  The key is to be consistent.  Our bodies need the sun to help produce Vitamin D which is important for bone health, immune function and blood ...

Breakout Blitzer

Posted: 2012-04-06 12:00:00 From our teenage years to adulthood, we have all experienced the unpleasant spot or breakout, annoyingly coming up to a special occasion or an all important job interview!  We’ve all been there covering it with toothpaste before bedtime and masking it with concealer so thick it defeats the purpose.   So what causes these break outs and what do we do to heal them? Breakouts on the face develop when oil that lubricates the skin clogs the oil ducts in our skin.  Dirt, dead skin cells can also be trapped by the oil within the duct.  When this happens bacteria starts to grow which would cause the breakout.  Some break outs may also be hormonal, many teenagers experience break outs and women who are pregnant or after giving birth will find there skin ...

The Golden Glow

Posted: 2012-03-21 09:00:00 After a long, cold dreary winter its great to see the evenings getting longer. As we emerge from our hibernation, along with the anticipation of the spring equinox comes the realisation that our skins are a funny shade of blue. So to create a wonderful spring glow some us turn to false tan.  This is when the trouble starts......A good natural tan not only gives us a lovely golden glow, it also makes us appear slimmer and more radiant. Unfortunately the idea of false tan application can be enough to make some of us want to go back into hibernation. For others it’s a constant nightmare of orange colours and streaks along with patchy knuckles and wrists. To help prevent this disaster  here are some tips to help you achieve a natural, warm golden glow. Creating the pe ...

The Perfect Brow!

Posted: 2012-03-15 11:30:00 Thin, long, short, hairy, they come in all shapes but as women we are rarely satisfied with the ones we have........get your minds back to beauty ladies, I’m talking about eyebrows! So if you struggle to achieve the perfect eyebrow shape, here is some advice to transform your look. The Perfect Shape The basic guideline for creating a proper shape is to hold a pen or ruler parallel to the side of your nose.  Where the ruler hits your brow, level with the inner corner of your eye, is where the brow should begin.  Still pressed against the corner of your nose, swing the ruler to the outer corner of your eye.  Where the ruler meets the brow is the brow should end.  Now look straight ahead, the spot above the pupil should be the brows highest point, creating ...
