Autumn is the perfect month to hit the refresh button on your skin. Party seasons in the past and your next holiday is too far away, so it’s time to detox and get your skin in glowing condition.
A little luxury that goes a long way is 20 minutes of LED Light Therapy.

Usually offered as a post treatment add on, we were inundated with requests from customers that just wanted to pop in on their lunch break or on their way home from work to get their glow fix.

LED Light therapy otherwise known in our Face Plus Clinics as Omnilux or Healite is the perfect example of where science and beauty have united to create a smart skin product.

It works by targeting specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skins support structure.
There are 3 different coloured light settings that target specific areas:

Yellow light: By stimulating the deeper skin tissue the yellow light leads to softened fine lines, improved skin tone and texture.

Red light: The cellular activity stimulates increased blood flow, leading to increased tissue oxygenation and detoxification. The skin will appear clearer with less fine lines, plumper and hydrated.

Blue light: Specifically designed for acne, patients will see a reduction of inflamed lesions 8 to 16 weeks following their first treatment.
The blue light stimulates the bacteria responsible for the inflamed acne, neutralising them.

The light also works to target the sebaceous glands to create an environment that is inhabitable for the growth of acne.

The lights can be used in combination during your treatment regime. Your dermal therapist will explain the benefits of the combination if suitable for your treatment plan.

If you’re overworked and need some extra rejuvenation or you have an event coming up and your skin is looking a bit lack lustre,

Light Therapy is a cost effective, no downtime solution that will have you looking and feeling your best and back at your desk before your boss has even noticed you’re gone.

Eye spy: Dr. Spiller Silk Contour Eye Cream

 

They say the eyes are the ‘windows to the soul’.

 

They also say that the eyes can be a window into someone’s stressed out, sleep deprived state. When people say, “you look tired” one of the biggest giveaways is your eyes and your surrounding eye area. Whether it’s dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, blood shot eyes or sagging eyelids our eyes are our biggest give away.

One of the first beauty creams my mum ever introduced me to, was eye cream. She taught me it was a mandatory, anti-ageing preventive that I needed to start using in my late teens. Now, I wasn’t as disciplined with my skin routine as she was, which is probably why at 54 my mum looks like she’s barely hit 40 and I’m 26 but keeping getting told I look sooooo much older (that stops being a compliment once you hit a quarter century, everyone).

So, what is eye cream and why do we absolutely need it?
The skin surrounding your eyes is much more fragile and thin compared to the rest of your face. It is also prone to dryness and is the first to show signs of age and fatigue.

This is due to the overactivity of the skin surrounding the eye area. Think about it, we’re blinking, squinting and rubbing our eyes all day long. The constant movement of the eyes hasten the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fluids also collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. You therefore need to nourish this delicate skin with quality product to hydrate and soothe the area.

The Dr. Spiller Silk Contour Eye Cream is an anti-ageing, lifting and firing eye cream designed to re-contour and tone the appearance of the eye area. When it comes to eye cream ingredients you want to look for a product with active ingredients to stimulate cell turnover.

The Dr. Spiller Silk eye cream contains silk peptides which are botanically rich in amino acids. The silk peptides have wound healing, moisturizing, re-building and anti-inflammatory properties.
When do I apply eye cream?
The silk Contour Eye cream should be applied morning and night. After cleansing, toning and correcting, you apply 1 pump to clean finger tips and gently pat around the eye area. Eye cream placement is almost as important as the product. Think of the area between the top of your cheek bone (directly under your eye) and the bottom of your eyelid as tissue paper. If you apply eye cream here, the cream will travel during the day or night as your skin heats up and could seep into your eye.
How to apply the Dr. Spiller Silk Contour Eye Cream
Use your ring finger.

The muscles in this finger are generally weaker) and dab in sideways motions along the bottom and top of the eye socket until the product is absorbed. Make sure not to neglect certain areas such as the corner of your eye extending out to your temple, as this is where fines lines and crow’s feet form.
Pro tip: if puffiness is an issue for you, keep your eye cream in the fridge. The naturally anti-inflammatory biomimetic peptides that are in the Dr. Spiller Silk Eyecream will also work to intensely hydrate and calm the skin.

This silk contour eye cream is a beauty cabinet essential. It is suitable for all skin types, but particularly for aged skin. The instant plumping and tightening effect will visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst the peptide complex and hyaluronic acid helps the impaired tissue by reducing puffiness and lightening dark circles.

Match your makeup to your mood

If I were to describe autumn in a colour palette, I would pick copper tones, rich browns and red wine.

Lucky for me, this is also the must have makeup look of the beauty world for autumn/winter ’18.
how can we achieve this?

Golden Eye
Start with your eye makeup. Move over smokey/panda eye there’s a new kid in town and she’s much more subtle and easy to clean off. Whether you’re all about a matte or shimmer effect, golden copper and rich browns are all the rage.

Blend together a mix of light to darker shades. Don’t just stop on your top lid, add a little under the eye to replace your usual eyeliner.

For a more relaxed look, don’t perfectly fill in your eyebrows (that’s so 2017), instead try the relaxed and wild brushed brow. Swap your brown pencil for a brow gel to keep those hairs in place. 

Bronze those cheeks
With summer gone, we need to fake it till we make it. A light dusting of bronzer contoured strategically around you face will give you the illusion of a thinner, more defined facial structure.

Contour your bronzer by brushing it Along the sides of your forehead and temples. this will create balance between the wider upper half of your face and the more narrow lower half.

Next move onto the area below your cheekbones starting from your ears and ending in the middle of your cheeks.
End by brushing a small amount right below your chin.

End with a wine stained lip
Time to trade your spritz for a rich red. Match your liquid to your lips and opt for a dramatic stain, gloss or matte lipstick.
Make sure to prep your lips before applying this dark colour.

I like to make my own DIY lip scrub using a teaspoon of raw sugar and a pea size amount of pawpaw ointment. Combine the two then massage gentle onto you lips. Wipe (or lick off) then apply a hydrated lip balm while you do your other makeup. By the time you’re ready to apply your lipstick your lips will be prepped and plump.

For a perfect lipstick look use a lipliner in the same colour to outline the shape of your lip before applying.
For a more relaxed look (which is all the rage in 2018) use a lip crayon and blend it through using your fingers. This will yield a smudged, effortless look like you missed your mouth on the merlot.

Autumn blues busters

 

Autumn brings rebirth!

Don’t you hate that feeling of leaving your office at 5:00pm and its dark outside? It feels like only yesterday we were watching the sun set at 8pm. For most of us 9-5ers, the weather and lack of sunlight after work has a real impact on our mood and metal state. 

They call it the autumn blues for a reason.

Here is a list of blues-busting techniques to get you through the cold months.

  1. Wake up earlier and exercise outdoors

I know it sounds ridiculous. How on earth is cutting into my sleep going to make me happier? (jump ahead to number 2 for the answer) waking up earlier and swapping the gym for a run in the park, is a brilliant way to see some sunlight, breathe some fresh, crisp air and also make your day seem a bit longer and more diversified.

Pack on your long tights and your puffer vest and hit the pavement. Only, the other week I woke up at 5:30am to run the bondi to bronte. I was shocked at how busy it was. I ran without overheating, I patted some cute bondi dogs, watched the sunrise over the water and had an overpriced coffee all by 7am. It was one of the nicest mornings I’ve had in a long time.

  1. Go to bed an hour earlier than usual

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than coming home, having a hot shower then changing into winter PJ’s and watching Netflix in bed.

To compensate for your productive mornings, have sloth like weekday evenings and hit the hay between 9-10pm.

  1. Learn to cook healthy versions of classic comfort food

Summer is the season of eating out and burning through savings. Just because you’re more of a homebody in the colder months, doesn’t mean you have to form a relationship with your UberEats delivery driver. It’s also not an excuse to ditch the diet.

Buy a slow cooker and learn how to slow cook meat. Trust me, it’s the easiest cooking you’ll ever do and walking into your house after work and smelling dinner, simmering away, is the most comforting feeling in the world.

  1. Plan nights in with friends

Just because you don’t feel like leaving the house, doesn’t mean you have to stop socialising. Invite friends over. Host a pamper night. Watch movies, cook dinner, drink wine, wear face masks. Enjoy your company on the couch instead of some trendy beachside bar.

  1. Use your weekends to explore

If you’re a beach bum, chances are you have a void of time to fill where you’d usually be perched on the sand. Take a weekend off and go on a road trip. Go on a forest hike, visit a vineyard, camp on the sand dunes – do fun, outdoorsy adventures, just wear more clothes than your usual swimsuit.
