Burn: (Don’t) feel the burn

How to burn fat and not skin this Summer

5 days into Summer and boy are we feeling it! The weather is warmer, we are spending way more time outdoors and everyone has a little more spring in their step, wouldn’t you agree?

Here are some simple tips to stay on top of your health this Summer period – because here at Face Plus we are all about staying sun safe, while enjoying the outdoors.

Change up your workout routine

Now that the weather is warmer, it may be time to mix things up in your workout regime. Perhaps it’s time to incorporate more outdoorsy activities like nature hikes or ocean swims.

Mix it up and find something that leaves you feeling energised and uplifted rather than exhausted and drained. If your body genuinely looks forward to the activity then you are on to a good thing!

Stay sun safe

Time to put some money aside for a beautiful beach hat, as well as something easy to throw on when you are training outside. If you are prone to burning, be sure to wear extra protection by covering your shoulders and investing in a good sun cream.

Also, be sure to invest in a beautiful daily moisturiser with SPF qualities. We recommend HydroPeptide, Solar Defense, Read more here

Invest in a good IPL treatment
If you are prone to pigmentation or melasma, it is time to be extra conscious of the sun and the impact it can have on your skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are fantastic as the light penetrates the skin surface, breaking down the pigment and eliminating noticeable sun damage.

Buff: Dat smooth Arse!

The face is always everyone’s primary concern but what about the rest of the body?

We spoke to Massage Therapist extraordinaire, Tania Dobbie about how to make our bodies silky smooth! Tania recommends a full body exfoliation every three months, usually at the change of season so that the skin is more receptive to the application of skincare products.

The Body Smoother is a fully body exfoliation treatment using the luxurious Waterlily Body Collection.

The Waterlily Body Collection is rich in botanical extracts and essential oils. The Body Smoother is a full body treatment recommended for all skin types to address specific skin concerns, including dehydration, laxity and congestion. Is it also recommended prior to a spray tan to promote and even tan.

The 45-minute treatment will reveal an immediate change in the tone and texture of the skin.
The exfoliant is massaged into the skin using long relaxing massage strokes.

This method promotes relaxation while the natural ingredients smooth, tone and refine the skin.
Following the full body exfoliation, the product is removed with hot towels.

This creates a flushing technique and promotes toxin removal. We then apply one of the Waterlily’s botanical oil blends to your soft, revitalised skin.

There are varying exfoliants available and your therapist will select one depending on your needs, following a thorough consultation.

Face Plus Medispa have a selection of salt, sugar and crème exfoliants including the following:

Lemongrass Infused Salt glow: Australian mineral salts, vitamin E and almond oil, stimulate circulation, tone the skin and promote cell renewal.

Crushed Lime Sugar Smoother: Australian can sugar blended with organic cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, and rosemary, lime and vanilla bean, soften, nourish and hydrate.
