Apply once a week to highly congested skin and fortnightly to low to moderate skin” Yvonne Culhane, Advance Dermal Therapist, Face Plus Medispa, Bondi Junction.
Treatments for combination skin – The Fresh & Fruit Mask by Dr Spiller provides the skin with energising fruit enzymes derived from pineapple, papaya and mango. This masks brightens and hydrates the skin, for best results apply for 10 to 20 minutes and use fortnightly.
Treatments for sensitive skin – Rolled oats are incredible for sensitive skin as they contain anti-inflammatory properties.

This at home remedy will calm and protect the skin; this mask can be applied twice a week for optimum results.
Treatments for normal skin – Twice a week you can apply a tonic to your skin. Using a raw organic apple cider vinegar will help to regulate the flora in the skin.

Snack Attack: When & What?

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Snack Attack: When & What?

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Snack
There are so many reasons why a (healthy) snack is great for you.
Planning two or three snacks a day, every 2.5 or 3.5 hours, can make the metabolism more efficient.
Our body best performs when the blood sugar is kept level. If the blood sugar in your body drops too low you will become lethargic and/or experience increased hunger. If it goes too high, your pancreas secretes insulin. Insulin brings the sugar level back down but this is primarily done by converting the excess sugar to stored fat. Not snacking throughout the day will mean your blood sugar level will drop, “bad” snacking will cause a spike in your blood sugar.
The selection process –
When selecting a snack it should roughly be between 100 to 200 calories.
Try carrying the pre planned snacks with you
Stock up on healthy snacks
Limit your consumption of high salt, fat and sugar foods
Our top 10 snacks –
Carrots with hummus
Cucumber with non fat cottage cheese
Cherry tomatoes
Berries, strawberries and blueberries
One egg, you can skip the yoke if you are being calorie conscious
Almonds, a small handful
Low fat yogurt
Tuna, a maximum of two to three times a week only
Protein shake, look for a low carb, low fat and low sugar
Protein Bar, look for a low carb, low fat and low sugar

Bend & Mend: Reflexology

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Bend & Mend: Reflexology[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Reflexology
Feet! They carry our body and it’s important we take care of them. Reflexology is the application of pressure to the reflexes on the feet and hands that correspond to the glands, organs, muscles and skeletal systems of the body
When the reflexes are worked they affect the corresponding areas on the body. Reflexology is especially beneficial to those who have never received body work, have cancer or are pregnant. It is a non intrusive treatment that reduces stress whilst promoting relaxation.

Examining the chart is interesting, particularly for the feet. If you have a sore back, the arch of the foot is the spinal reflex and the outer edge of the foot is the side of the body.
If there a specific area that is of concern to you book in for a consultation.
