How do you feel in the morning?
Do you struggle to get up, get the coffee, run out the door, miss the cate, jump over the dog and end up in the car driving the kids to school, and then take a look at yourself.
You need to take some responsibility of your life.
Well take 5 minutes in the morning, plan your day, take some deep breaths, put on that new lipstick, fix your hair, aod spray on a light scent.
This will help you prepare for your day.

Take a good look at your self. Do you like what you see??
If not fix it!
Only you can.
Time to get your hair cut or coloured.
Skin feels tired - Or you are tired.
Why not book yourself that facial treatment or massage. You will help the economy but you will also feel a lot better.
Money tight, well why not get the kids to give you a bit of massage or if you are lucky your other half might give you a massage.
Or another idea why not give yourself a nice facial this weekend at home.
Get your nice cleanser, double cleanse your skin, apply a nice exfoliant, massage gently in and then rinse off, then put a hydrating or beautiful instant glowing mask on. Leave on for 10minutes then rinse. Feel the difference. It really does make your skin feel better.
Then of course now you can go and have a happy day.

Is Simplicity To your Skin The Key

When simplicity will do! Feel like trying a new angle in skin care. The latest trend is using some simple products at home for at home skin treatments.
Here is some great products for home skin treatments
  • Herbal acne remedy,The oil of the Australian tea tree contains terpinen-4-ol, an antibacterial agent that kills zit-causing bacteria. It can be used directly but use with caution and apply sparingly. It also acts as a solvent, so it can stop oily matter from clogging up sebaceous glands and forming pimples. A recent study compared 5 percent tea-tree-oil gel to 5 percent benzoyl peroxide (a common blemish fighter) in a treatment of mild to moderate acne. "It was found that both worked equally well to get rid of whiteheads and blackheads," says Jules S. Abadi, a New York City dermatologist. Plus, tea-tree oil has none of the side effects -- such as dryness -- of chemical acne antidotes.
  • Lavender the rescue in a bottle - maybe used directly on skin.

    This was the start of the popularity of lavender oil, and it is still one of the most used essential oils today.

    It is with good reason why lavender oil is one of the most favorite essential oils, as it has wonderful qualities and also smells great.

    It is a calming, relaxing oil, which combats stress and crisis, while the antiseptic properties help with colds, flu and other ailments.

    It is excellent for asthma and migraines.

    Apart from that it supports female health and it has a healing effect on the skin, while preventing scarring and balancing the skin. Try on a tissue for inhaling for sinus. I love a couple of drops in a pure unscented jojoba based cream for a perfect body and face cream.

  • Unscented Jojoba Cream is a silky smooth, light unscented cream for the face and body. It’s formulated with a generous amount of moisturising Jojoba oil, a natural plant wax with a similar structure to our own skin oil.

The Unscented cream is an ideal alternative to massage oil where a topical application is preferred, but it does not have the oiliness of a massage oil. Essential oil(s) readily blend into the cream to create the product just right for your needs. By making up small amounts of the cream, it is easy to customize the cream to suit your skin as it changes with the seasons.

Keep up with our blogs, follow us today thanks again

  Cinnamon: It is found  that a mixture of honey and cinnamon  cures 
  most diseases. Honey is produced  in most of the countries of the 
  world.  Scientists of today also accept honey as a "Ram Ban"  (very 
  effective) medicine or all kinds  of  diseases.

                             Honey can be used without any side 
   effects for any kind of  diseases.

  of Cinnamon Powder mixed in  16 ounces of tea water, given to a 
   cholesterol patient, was found to reduce The level of  cholesterol 
  in the blood by 10 percent  within two hours. As Mentioned for 
   arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any  chronic 
  Cholesterol is cured.  According to information received in the  said 
  Journal, pure honey taken with  food daily relieves complaints of

                         Recent studies have shown that the  sugar 
  content of honey is more helpful  rather than being detrimental to 
  the  strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey  and 
  cinnamon powder in equal  parts, are more alert and flexible.  Dr. 
  Milton, who has done research,  says that a half Tablespoon of honey 
   taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon  powder, taken 
  daily after brushing and  in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M.  When 
  the vitality of the body starts  to decrease, increases the vitality 
  of  the body within a  week.

                         BAD  BREATH:
                         People of South America , first thing in  the 
  morning, gargle with one teaspoon  of honey and cinnamon powder 
  mixed in  hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the  day.

                         HEARING  LOSS:
                         Daily morning and night honey and  cinnamon 
  powder, taken in equal parts  restore hearing. Remember when we were 
   kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon  sprinkled on  it!

Have a great day these old fashion remedies may actually work as none hospitals in sydney use honey on wounds.

Winter skin

Winter skin

We all like the cooler weather but when the temperature becomes cold we tend to turn up the heating, which irritates a lot of people’s skins.

Does your skin have any of the following – dehydration, tightness, redness, irritation, fine lines, or just plain dry- then winter will not be helping.

This is when we have to do a little bit more to protect our skin. Not only on our face, body, hands and feet can also be affected.

Remember this is the time to make sure your fluid level is still high lots of water, when it is cooler most of us forget to drink and rehydrate our body’s and this will show in our skins. Consider this that the skin is the largest organ of your body so remember that water is a vital element in providing you with a better looking skin.

Take a look at your moisturizer – did you buy it is summer? You may need to start using a slightly richer textured cream to give more protection from the environment.

My favorite is to add a hydrating serum two of the best on the market are Payot  Hydrofluide and Dermalogica Hydrating Booster both add a huge hydrating level to the skin without adding oil. This will make sure that your skin stays moist and hydrated but does not clog your skin.

This is a great time to also look at the type of exfoliation you are using and how often. We all end up with a lot of dead cells in winter so a gentle exfoliant is important to improve texture and product absorption for more rapid results. Two exciting winter exfoliants are Payots Gommage Fondant a excellent exfoliant for dry and sensitive skin and the new Thermafoliant by Dermalogica with a slightly warming texture this is a beautiful treatment for the cooler months.

Make sure once you have exfoliate that you restore balance by applying a soothing hydrating mask, two beautiful masks that will do the trick are Payot Hydrating Masque and Dermalogica Multi Vitamin Power recovery mask.

Most people will find that the skin on the body also gets effected so now is the time to slather that beautiful body cream after showering or bathing and making sure that you apply your hand cream after washing up so that dry dehydrated lines do not show on the back of your hands that show ageing.

Now is the time to get out exercise by doing a bit of walking, enjoy a nice cab sav or relaxing bath or both.

Are The Chocolate Bunnies Coming To Get You - The Myth Concerning Chocolate

Well Happy Easter, will the chocolate bunnies and Easter eggs get you??

Does Chocolate make me break out?
Well alot of people are sensitive to lactose, which is found in milk, cheese, chocolate, yogurt etc. And alot of people find that if they eat this time of food they tend to break out in white type pimple heads and also break out in the cheek area. 

This in Chinese Medicine represents the lung area and when we have had to much dairy alot of people start to break out in this region.
Though science tells us no one food group triggers acne. 

But in our practice we have found that people that eat dairy products may have a sensitivity and tend to break out. In other words watch what you are eating how much you are consuming, then take a look at your skin 4 days later.

Generally it takes the body 4 days to react internally with break outs to something it is not breaking down well. Drink lots of water, correctly clean your skin, do not over strip the skin, as this will cause further oil production, and irritate the surface. Use a oil free moisturiser to protect the surface, wash pillow slip regularly, Do not pick pimples, this will allow for bacteria to spread.
Gently exfoliate once a week.
Deep Cleansing masks are effective for cleaning the skin - ones that are clay base are good.

Bridal Tips for 2009


                        Our top tips to help you organise and prepare for your special wedding day.

6 months prior to the big day organise makeup and hairdresser,by booking a trial for your wedding day. To make life easier for The Makeup Artist and Hairdresser go through magazines for looks that are exactly to your liking, save the pages for your trials and file away for your wedding day, makeup and hair looks
  1. Start regular facials-we would recommend at least 6 months prior book your favourite salon every month for a deep cleanse, exfoliation, massage and mask. This will help with skin texture, blackheads, pimples and relaxation, and of course any fine lines.
  2. Book a spray tan and check the colour the therapist is using, take the name of therapist and if you like the spray tan, book the same girl if available 1 day prior to the special day. You can top up with Napoleon Summer Sun Self Tanning Spray or the Summer Lovers Self Tan Mousse both give a great natural colour.
  3. Start exfoliation 1 x week over your whole body, this will help with skin texture, moving lymph and toxins, and allow absorption of body moisturising creams more easily. Exfoliate and mask your face weekly to start improving facial texture, facial fine lines, improve deep cleansing of open pores, pimples and blackheads.
  4. Ensure waxing and facial, manicure and pedicures, spray tan are all booked 2 months prior to your wedding, Book facial 3 days before, 2 days before manicure and pedicure, 1 days before wedding book spray tan, you dont want it coming off.
  5. Start regular exercise and drink loads of water, to cleanse system up your vitamins, eat regularly and Learn deep breathing exercises to ease any stress leading up to your big day.
  6. When your big day is close organise with your mother in law or old friend to carry your emergency Touch up Kit - should contain, lip gloss, touch up powder, lip stick, breath freshner, hair spray and hair brush, perfume - make a list of two extra things you may need.
  7. Remember to take with you a picture of a makeup that best describes the look you are after for your wedding makeup. This will allow your makeup artist to make sure that your makeup is exactly how you want it. Hopefully it is the same picture that you use when you first had your trial makeup.

  8. Use waterproof mascara on the big day, most brides will shed a tear or two - remember to pack a waterproof mascara remover so you dont end up the morning after with Panda eyes.
9.       Use a large Blush brush dusted with powder to set foundation press powder into skin        then gently buff downwards - so any fine hairs on the face wont attract sunlight.For a long    lasting lipstick for the special day - prepare the lips making sure that they are totally dry, no    moisturiser, gel or lip gloss. Nothing - then get a lip pencil very close to your natural colour cover the whole lip area, and draw the lips, set with a little dusting of powder, then fill in your lips with a natural shade, antique warm coffee, nude and natural look is in. And then using a little gloss dab in the middle of the top and bottom lip
                         10.Use a lip seal if available.
                         11.  Make sure your lips are dry before kissing, sipping drinks etc.
Finally - Relax-Every Bride should enjoy her day. This day goes so fast and hopefully it will bring you long and happy memories.

A study of 1,000 women found over 40% those who smoked had non-inflammatory acne, characterised by blocked pores, large white heads and small cysts.

This compared with 10% of non-smokers, the study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found.

However, the link between smoking and spots is controversial, and the authors admit other factors may play a role.

Nevertheless, the team from the San Gallicano Dermatological Institute in Rome said they felt their findings could lead to non-inflammatory acne (NIA) being seen as "a new entity among smoking-related cutaneous diseases".

They dubbed it "smokers' acne face".

Teenage spots

The study was carried out on women because the condition appears to affect more women than men.

All of these findings will hopefully provide people with an extra incentive to quit

Of the 1,000 subjects, just under 30% were smokers. Of these 42.2% developed acne, predominantly the non-inflammatory form rather than the one featuring red and swollen spots.

The researchers said the smokers in the group had half the levels of skin secretions of vitamin E compared with non-smokers, as well as other variations in skin make-up.

Those who had experienced acne in their teens were found to be four times more likely to suffer acne than non-smokers who had also suffered teenage spots.

Other factors have however already been identified in the development of NIA, including hormonal alterations, stress, occupational and environmental factors.

Environmental factors were found in half of the 10% of non-smokers with the condition. Such factors included the skin being exposed for instance to intense smoke or steam, usually in a place of work such as a kitchen.

It is unclear the extent to which these factors may also have influenced the development of NIA in non-smokers.

Nonetheless, the study fitted into a trend of linking smoking with acne, said the president of the British Association of Dermatologists, Colin Holden.

"All of these findings will hopefully provide people with an extra incentive to quit."
