look – make time for moisture

Skin is our biggest organ and like the rest of our body, it needs moisture! The skin on our face is just as thirsty and if you wear makeup, it is essential that you prime your skin with moisture first. Make up helps skin look great, but let’s make sure we look after it underneath. Our newly launched Australian blue cypress face nectar is the ultimate skin quenching botanical boost that instantly adds moisture and hydration in a few drops. It is the perfect way to plump up skin, improve elasticity, and help make up to adhere better to the skin. Apply before you put on your makeup and you’ll notice how dewy and glowing your complexion is. Even if you’re in a hurry, don’t skip this step, it’s so helpful in helping you get the skin you want. Dry, lack-lustre, tired looking skin can take a hike because natural skin radiance is your new thing…

skin loving food

As a Naturopath, I believe that healthy gorgeous skin comes from within. Our skin tells the story of our overall health; if our hormones are happy, if our liver is clearing toxins effectively or if needs a little more support, or perhaps that we need the support of a specific nutrient.

a guide to personal care products and pregnancy

We’re always so happy to collaborate with beautiful brands, and Edible Beauty is definitely one of them. Anna Mitsios, founder of Edible Beauty, firmly believes that we can all be beautiful by nurturing our body, mind and soul. Discover here one of her most recent bog post, where she shares how to take care of yourself and your body during pregnancy. “Whilst there is an abundance of information regarding foods to avoid during pregnancy, there lot of confusion around what women should be using on their bodies. This is equally important given we can absorb approximately 60% of what we put on our skin and given the placenta is not the barrier we once thought.

Antioxidants – nature’s protectors and fighters

Sadly we just haven’t quite found the secret to eternal youth, but antioxidants are arguably the nearest we will come in terms of finding the best anti-ageing, protect and repair elixir that nature has to offer! Antioxidants reduce the damage to our body due to oxidation. When oxygen is metabolised, it creates ‘free radicals’ that steal electrons from other molecules, causing damage. The body can cope with some free radicals and needs them to function effectively, but too many free radicals start to have a damaging effect on the body and have been linked to heart disease, liver disease and some cancers. Stress, cigarette smoking, alcohol, sunlight, pollution and several other factors can also accelerate oxidation – more reason to stay calm and give up the booze and the cigarettes! This is why smokers and those who drink a lot have more skin and tissue damage and are more prone to some diseases than non-smokers/non-drinkers. However, oxidation is a fact of life – but its damaging effects can be reduced by antioxidants, which are found …

How to live a less toxic life

No matter what you do, where you go or how you live your life, unless you’re living under a rock in the middle of nowhere, it’s pretty hard to avoid toxins. Our daily lives are full of them. They’re in the atmosphere, in our food and drink, cans and bottles, in our toiletries, cleaning products, furniture, clothes, house paint, drinking water and even in our computers. We actually even make toxins ourselves through our own stress! These daily chemicals safe or are thought to be linked to issues such as lower IQ, cancer and reproductive problems and could well play a part in all sorts of illnesses. We simply don’t know what their effects are. We’re actually exposed to toxins from within the womb, from chemicals that travel across the placenta and into the foetus. These chemicals can be known toxins such as mercury, lead and BPA (found in plastics) or other unknown toxins that we simply have no idea we’re ingesting. In ABC’s Catalyst programme last week, Dr Maryanne Demasi investigated the chemicals found …
