Rays: Light me up!

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
If you’re a sun soaker, we know you’ll love this treatment!
We are talking about LED Light Therapy.
Clients who have experienced this advanced LED Light treatment often say it’s relaxing, like laying out, soaking up the rays BUT unlike UV and UVB rays these colourful rays are good for you!
There are three shades of light on offer with each light targeting a different rejuvenation or health concern. The LED Light Therapy treatment is one that we offer across all of our Face Plus Medispa clinics with one difference:
Bankstown & Bondi Junction: Offer Omnilux, the original light, established in 1998
Bondi Beach: Offer Healite, offers the same great proven results, just a younger brand!
We love both machines and cannot recommend both highly enough.
Now back to the lights. There are three light settings available, your therapist will decide on the day of your treatment which light is most appropriate or you will be placed on a specific treatment plan outlining the colour light and when.
Red light: Often a stand-alone treatment, can be used alone for primary skin rejuvenation. Following a series of treatments, the skin appears clearer with less fine lines, is plumped up and hydrated. To see a visible difference, we recommend a series of 6 to 8 treatments no more than 48 hours apart, we offer great packages on this treatment and can be a great addition to other facial treatments and injectables.
Yellow light: Dr William Mooney, our founder LOVES this light and offers this light to all of his surgical patients. Designed for wound healing, pain management, psoriasis and for the reduction of periorbital wrinkles. Following just one treatment patients see great results.

The yellow light as you can see is also very effective on bruising due to its ability to provide temporary increase blood circulation.
The yellow light has also been proven to work as a hair regrowth and acne treatment.
Blue light: This light has been specifically designed to target acne with great results. We have used this light to treat acne on various part of the body other than the face. Bacne is a condition many face and come summer, let’s face it, you would prefer it if it wasn’t there. Check out some of your treatment options here.

Smitten: Cleansing Mitten

[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]

Smitten: Cleansing Mitten

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
The last thing you want to do at the end of the day/night is have to remove makeup, don’t you wish it was acceptable and healthy for you to go to bed with it on? Can someone please invent makeup that can also act as a sleep mask? PLEASE?
For those of you who aren’t in the know, wearing makeup to bed is BAD, very bad.
Neglecting to remove your eye make up can cause dryness, redness, irritation and best of all, INFECTION!
We recommend you use a gentle eye makeup remover rather than the mitt we are suggesting in this blog, read about our favourite product here.
Sleeping in your makeup can increase your exposure to free radicals, leading to collagen breakdown and skin that ages faster.
This is an obvious one, leaving your foundation on over night can lead to clogged pores and pimples.
Seriously, the health benefits of removing your makeup before you go to bed are end less and we won’t list them all here.
What we do have is an easy option for you if you can’t be bothered with the luke warm water and the double cleansing!
The Jane Iredale Magic Mitt, is a knitted micro-fibre cloth that relies only on water and tiny micro-fibres to penetrate and wash away oil and grime.
The mitt promoted the health of the skin because it does not affect the acid mantle. When this beneficial barrier is intact, it aide the skin in protecting itself from harmful and invasive bacteria. Acid Mantle = Best Friend!
The Jane Iredale Magic Mitt, is made from a new generation of specially knitted micro-fibres that are many times thinner than human hair and able to penetrate oil films.
The mitt breaks the surface tension of the oils that bond the makeup to the skin while the fibres gently exfoliate.
The combination of warm water and micro-fibres turn the makeup into an emulsion that is easily swept away by the mitt.
Jane Iredale, Magic Mitt, $35

It is so easy to use, simply saturate the mitt with warm water, squeeze and place the mitt over your hand. Use it as you would a washcloth and then use the clean side of the mitt to wipe any additional residue.
Best of all, you’ll be saving a whole lot of cash on makeup wipes! Why? It is a reusable mitt.
To clean the mitt, wash it in warm water with hand soap until all makeup residue is gone. Rinse thoroughly and hang it up to dry. Do not store it anything that does not allow it to dry completely. Because these unique micro-fibres slough off all organic residue and dry completely, they ensure that nothing is left on the mitt to harbour any bacteria or fungi.

Spending Silly: Summer Saving Tips

[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]

Spending Silly: Summer Saving Tips

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

It’s called the Silly Season for a reason – more parties, more wine, more food, more shopping. Everything in excess. Summer down under is all about Christmas, end of year celebrations and starting fresh into the new year.

But speaking of starting fresh, do you want to step into 2018 with a fresh, light take on your financial situation? Or are you more likely to carry forward debts accumulated by splurging big?

Believe it or not, money and wellbeing go hand in hand. A big cause of stress in most Australians, your ‘money story’ really does determine your overall states of wellbeing.

And this is not to say you shouldn’t splash out on fancy gifts, nice meals out or that extra bottle of rose. Not at all! This is about knowing what is realistic for where you are at financially, so that as you step into the new year, you don’t have any looming financial hangovers. The alcohol-hangovers are enough, yeah?

So, how can you ensure you are financially stable throughout the silly season?

Get to know your money story

We all have a very individual, unique money story. This is the story we have learned growing up – formed by our parent’s attitudes with money, passing comments we have observed as children, and beliefs we have taken as ‘truths’ throughout adulthood.

Maybe it’s a scarcity mindset: money doesn’t grow on trees.

Or perhaps it’s a resistance to money: money is the root of all evil.

Once we get clear on what our money story is telling us, we can unpick what is actually FACT, and what is just that – a story. Are your money stories serving you? Remember we attract our thoughts – they create our reality. So if we are telling ourselves we are a bad saver, or we can’t stick to a budget then guess what? We WILL be bad at saving and budgeting.

Change up your money story – what do you really WANT to believe about money? Is it that you always have more than enough? Is it that money is easy to come by? Start repeating your NEW stories, and watch the way you relate to money change.

Find a savings plan that works for you

Notice I didn’t say budget? It’s a word most people squirm at hearing (myself included). The words we use are SO important. In fact, take a look at what you are calling your accounts right now. SAVINGS MAXIMISER is so much less fun than SUMMER SPENDINGS.

Just a simple tweak of the naming conventions in our accounts can change the way we relate to spending our money entirely.

I have accounts called My Dream Business, Our Dream Wedding, Splurge… and the list goes on. Find what works for you.

I HIGHLY recommend reading The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape. My partner and I do everything by the book and no longer stress about money – and that’s a couple planning a wedding, and starting two businesses!

Be honest with yourself

Stop comparing your spending habits to your friends and family. Be honest about what you can afford. It doesn’t make you inferior or any less ‘worthy’ than someone who maybe can afford more than you.

Catch the stories you tell yourself when you find you truly are unable to afford as much as someone else in your life. Do you compare? Splurge and deal with the consequences (read: debt) later? Take note of what YOUR financial priorities are, and own those first! Then, with whatever is leftover, you can be really realistic about where you can invest (read: not ‘waste’) your money.
