EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DETOXING
Cleanse_Insta_Benefits_tile.gif

Detoxification is a natural and ongoing process performed by your elimination organs: your liver, colon, kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin. And all day, everyday, your body is working hard to eliminate toxins from both internal and external sources.  

For example, your liver is constantly filtering harmful or unwanted substances and converting them into less harmful forms ready for excretion. Some of these substances are made by your body – but no longer needed – such as cholesterol or excess oestrogen and other hormones.

Some experts will say that these automatic detoxification processes are all we need. And, if you are feeling energetic, your skin is radiant and your digestion is working well then perhaps they are enough. But, if you feel sluggish or fatigued, have trouble concentrating or sleeping, catch colds easily, suffer from allergies, have pimples or skin rashes, bloating or constipation or just feel like things are not humming along as well as they could be, then perhaps your elimination organs could do with a little extra support. 

For many, the cosmetic signs of an overloaded liver are often the first to manifest and can include skin rashes or breakouts, eczema, rosacea and cellulite.

Detoxing is by no means a silver bullet that will fix all ailments and if a health or skin condition is troubling you then you should definitely consult with your healthcare practitioner. But gently cleaning up your diet is often a good place to begin improving your health. You could compare it to cleaning your house. You need to pick everything up off the floor before you can begin to vacuum – and you need to remove clutter before you can dust the shelves.

Likewise, avoiding processed or fried foods, added salt, refined sugars, trans fats, food additives, pesticides, caffeine, cigarettes and alcohol are all good ways to begin cleaning your internal ‘house’. By avoiding these additional toxins, it can make it easier for your hardworking elimination organs – especially your liver – to work more efficiently and detox a little more deeply.

Nourishing yourself with vitamins and minerals from wholefood sources is another way to support your detoxification pathways.  


3 MORE SIMPLE WAYS TO SUPPORT DETOXIFICATION

 

Add CLEANSE Inner Beauty Powder to your inner beauty routine.

Containing 45 Certified Organic and bio-fermented fruits, vegetables, seeds, roots, algae, grasses, purifying herbs, digestive enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics, CLEANSE supports your body’s natural detoxification processes from the inside, out.

 Mindful movement.

The more you move, the better your blood and your lymph fluid will flow – remember, you must move it to lose it. In fact, your lymphatic system only moves when you do. Low-intensity exercise such as walking, rebounding, swimming, rowing or cycling on a stationery machine, pilates and yoga can all get your lungs breathing more deeply, your lymphatic system flowing and your heart pumping. Plus working up a gentle sweat helps expel toxins via your skin.

Everything You Need to Know about LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy. What is it, how does is work its magic and is it really safe for our skin?

What is LED Light Therapy?

LED (Light emitting diode) is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses LED light bulbs to emit different wavelengths of light energy, that target deep into the skin cells for multiple skin and anti-aeging benefits. It is a painless and relaxing treatment that is cost effective with amazing results, safe for all skin types and colours.

What are the benefits?

LED has an array of different bright coloured lights, LED is usually used in combination with other Skin treatments for optimal results and is an ideal treatment to have before and after microdermabrasion and skin peels to help accelerate the healing process and maximise your treatment benefits, increases blood flow to skin tissue.

LED works harmoniously with your body’s own natural processes of synthesis and repair to restore an overall state of balance and wellbeing to the skin. Working with the power of light to make you glow!

Photo-rejuvenation uses LIGHT ENERGY to stimulate the skin’s own natural cellular metabolic processes, to heal and rejuvenate and, once triggered, these healing reactions continue even after the light is removed.

For the treatment of:

  • Ageing – sun damage, lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Sensitive skin (anti-inflammatory)

RED light therapy is anti-ageing, specifically targeting more mature skin types, the light stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, firming and tightening the skin. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps to balance pigmentation.

The higher frequency BLUE light therapy is used for the treatment of acne; the BLUE light targets and destroys the acne vulgaris bacteria. It also helps to reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing process.

Combination Treatments are highly recommended for the best results!
Combine your favourite facial treatment with LED Light Therapy to enhance and power your facial to a whole new level of performance.

What are LEDs?
LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) designed to deliver a specific light wavelength at a lower regenerative intensity, with no cellular damage. LED Light Therapy is completely painless.

Can led light therapy burn or harm the skin?
NO! LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive natural therapy; it is 100% safe and painless. It is a relaxing and calming experience with NO adverse side effects or client downtime. Clients may experience a slight and comfortable warming of the skin as the LED Light energises the skin cells.

What is an Azyme Peel?

Our Ultraceuticals A-Zyme peel or skin workout has long been one of our favourite Advanced Skin Treatments, but now it is 'NEW & IMPROVED'!
This Star Performing Paramedical treatment contains exclusive Ultra-Reti microparticles, an advanced delivery technology for Retinol. Developed to support the skin's epidermis and dermis, this treatment will smooth and dramatically soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to the pure Retinol (1%), the A-Zyme is also supported with the additional benefits of Bromelain Concentrate (8%). Bromelain improves the visual appearance of the skin by digesting the keratin of dead skin cells, therefore accelerating the turnover and exfoliation of these cells which helps to even out skin tone and dramatically refine the texture of the skin.

So why do you need Vitamin A in your skin? Vitamin A has a small molecular structure meaning its able to get to the lower layers of the skin to work from the inside out. It is an extremely effective cell-communicating ingredient which means it can connect to almost any skin cell and tell it to behave like a younger, healthy functioning cell. It works by promoting skin cells to regenerate at a faster level bringing through fresh young skin cells and getting rid of old damaged ones!

With all this cell turnover it is now producing a lot more hylauranic acid, (our skins own natural hydration) giving the skin a fresh glow. One of its most powerful qualities is its ability at normalising and regulating oil production (amazing for acne or breakout prone skin with in-salon treatments and home care use). The anti-aging effects of Retionl on the skin have been broadly acknowledged and widely documented. Clinically Vitamin A has been shown to promote the deposition of new collagen and prevent its degeneration (reduces fine lines and wrinkles). In addition it reduces pigmentation and sun damage as it acts like a “jack-hammer” breaking up the damaged melanin cells in the deeper layers of your skin, bringing them to the surface where they can be exfoliated off! As your oil flow slows down and you are producing more collagen, your pore size will slowly start to refine and shrink in size making them less visible to the naked eye.

If you can imagine a technologically advanced peel that provides real visible results without discomfort, minimal to no redness making it a great “lunch time” peel allowing you to go about your day with no signs of had having a peel. Three days after your peel you may experience some “shedding” or light flaking of the skin, however using the Ultraceuticals post peel products will reduce this downtime and ensure best results. If you are looking for best results, I recommend this as your go to peel. It's definitely my favourite! 

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful skincare ingredient. But don’t let the word “acid” put you off. This gel-like water-holding molecule is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep skin plump and hydrated. And, it’s actually something our bodies naturally produce.

Hyaluronic Acid helps retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin, making it an excellent moisturiser. 

Scientific studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid helps improve skin hydration and production of collagen, fight free radicals, maintain skin elasticity, and even has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help with wound healing. Yes, please!

So why do we need more if our bodies already produce it?

Well, the average human body contains about 15 grams of Hyaluronic Acid. However, one third of that gets degraded and synthesised on a daily basis. We also produce less and less as we age. So we need more, which is why many anti-ageing products contain Hyaluronic Acid. Just choose a serum or moisturiser that contains Hyaluronic Acid (also commonly listed as Sodium Hyaluronate) for softer, smoother, more hydrated skin.
