Ctrl R (refresh): Face Plus Signature Enzyme Facial

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
If you were to ask which facial treatment is most popular in our clinics the answer would be: Face Plus Enzyme Facial, also referred to as the Enzyme Peel.
We wouldn’t categories this treatment under a “peel” as clients generally do not see a peeling effect following the treatment, nor is that the treatment goal.
First time visitors will more than likely experience this treatment or the Herbal Hydration Peel.
Like all facials at Face Plus Medispa we tailor the treatment to your skins needs. How does your dermal therapist know what your skin requires? This is determined at your thorough skin consultation, read about our consultation process here.
The tailored treatment regardless of skin type will aim to:
– Smooth
– Hydrate
– Glow
And the best thing? The results will be rapid!
The key ingredients include:
Spelt: A protein rich grain abundant in biomimetic leucine, phenylalanine, threonine, lysine and valine amino acids. Replicates NMF (Natural Moisturising Factor), Vitamin B6, zinc, magnesium and iron.
Kaolinite: A drawing mineral clay rich in aluminium silicates that absorb excess sebum production.
Wheat protein: Rich in serine, alanine, glycine, aspartic acid, threonine, leucine, lysine, valine, arginine, histadine, phenylalanine, glutamic acid and proline found in NMF.
Lactose: A biomimetic disaccharide found naturally in glycosaminoglycans.
The exfoliating enzymes are activated by steam and only target dead keratinised protein.
The Face Plus Enzyme Facials are a safe and effective natural way to facilitate exfoliation, help overall biological processes in the skin that have slowed down due to age or sun damage and to inhibit free-radical damage. The Enzyme Facials accelerate biochemical reactions in a cell that would proceed minimally or not at all if the enzymes were not present.
This deep yet gentle exfoliation is suitable for even the most sensitive skins excluding stage IV acne.

Shake it: Eye Makeup Remover

[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]

Shake it: Eye Makeup Remover

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
Eyes are a very sensitive area and harsh makeup removers MUST be avoided.
We’ve also noticed thick clothes available on the market, please be wary when purchasing these. Yes, they might not contain harsh chemicals BUT you’re required to RUB on the eye area quite “aggressively” to remove the makeup! Trust us, you do not want to be doing that… Read some key reasons why here.
The best way to remove makeup is with a safe product designed for the eyes and makeup removal.
Before facial treatment at Face Plus Medispa your dermal therapist will always perform a thorough cleanse. As a part of that cleanse we use the Eye Make-Up Remover by Dr Spiller.
The is a dual phase formula enriched with non-irritant natural oils gently removing water-proof makeup without drying the eye area.
The key ingredients include:
Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5)
It readily absorbs and penetrates deeply. An intensely hydrating ingredient, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. If you are deficient in in vitamin B5 it can lead to dermatological disorders.
Castor Oil
An antioxidant beach extract rich in biomimetic triglycerides and fatty acids for conditioned lashes. The triglycerides also helps to restore the skins natural moisture balance.
Castor oil helps to pull excess dirt from the epidermis. It is rich in oleic and linoleic acid, which is why the oil is a perfect choice for softening and smoothing dry skin.
Rose Oil
An essential oil rich in antioxidants polyphenols, avonoids, tannins, fatty acids and Vitamin C.
The Eye Make-Up Remover effortlessly dissolves waterproof and long-lasting eye makeup without rubbing or aggressing the eye area.
It is a gentle non-stinging product that works for lip makeup too!
The product is very easy to use. The bottle must shaken well before use.
Lightly soak two cotton pads, one for each eye and gently press and hold the pads onto your eyes for 10 to 15 seconds. You will see the makeup transfer onto the pads.
Keep repeating this process until all of the makeup in the target area is removed.
You can keep the product cool in the fridge and when used on the eyes you will see it visibly smooth puffiness.
Eye Make-Up Remover, Dr Spiller, $78

Eyes can really show signs of aging, it’s important to treat them with great care. Check out some of our other eye related products we recommend here.

Say yes: Feel the fear and do it anyway

In life there are always two motivators (and two only) – love or fear.

Every decision we make, choice we have, motivator that turns up – is either from a place of LOVE or a place of FEAR.

The key to embracing a beautiful, happy and holistically ‘well’ life is to switch back to love whenever we can.

Now that is far easier said than done. Fear can rear its head in the most unlikely places. As humans, we have conditioned to view things through fear goggles as an element of survival instinct.

Back when we were cave men and women, it was important to be focusing on the risks – our lives depended on it! So jumping to ‘worst case scenario’ was ingrained into us, in order to keep us alive.

The trouble is, this way of living and thinking is no longer serving us. We are far less likely to be attacked by a sabre-toothed tiger than we were back then. On a day to day basis, we are far safer, secure and have less to worry about – and yet we are more stressed than ever before.

When fear arises it is always from a place of wanting to protect us – to keep us safe. The key to feeling the fear and doing it anyway, is to recognise when fear is actually NOT serving you. Where is your fear irrational?

Rational fear: Not wanting to jump out of a plane.
Irrational fear: Not wanting to get into a relationship with someone you really like, because you ‘might get hurt’.
Rational fear: Bungee jumping
Irrational fear: Staying in a job you hate because you are worried about what your boss might think if you leave

Start to recognise the areas in your life that are currently motivated by FEAR rather than love. Are you exercising because you are too scared to put on weight, or because you love the way being healthy feels? Are you hanging out with friends who light you up, or people who you feel guilty to say no to?

What may surprise you are the areas in your life that are fuelled by fear. But this is okay – because you are absolutely in control of where you allocate your energy, and your motivators behind it – and you can always switch to LOVE.

How do you switch from fear to love?
Ask yourself in every moment, with every decision you have to make – what would LOVE do?
Would love slug it out at the gym, even though your body is crying out for a day of rest?

Would love binge drink to fit in with a group of people you don’t necessarily like, when you would rather sit at home and have a night in?
Would love say no to the person you really like, as a means of ‘protection’?
Always come back to the question What would love do? and when you have the answer, act on it.

It won’t feel comfortable – but that is where the real growth happens…outside of our comfort zones.
Read our blog on setting goals and achieving them here.

Where can you feel the fear but do it anyway?
