Goodbye Tattoo Regrets: Removing Tattoos Without Lasers

By | Skin Treatments | No Comments

Self expression is a wonderful thing, but so is the ability to change your mind. In this day and age it seems like everyone and their mother has a tattoo (or three), and it seems like more than ever the average person may be jumping into an impulsive novelty tattoo. Sure, it was clever at the time, but now you’re a totally different person and it just doesn’t hold the same appeal it once did. The good news is that nothing is permanent.

For quite some time laser tattoo removal has been held as the industry standard for treating unwanted ink, but it comes with some drawbacks, most notably that it simply does not work on certain colours of ink, and is not as effective for darker skin types. Other not-so-nice effects from laser tattoo removal include:

  • Blistering and burning
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Pinpoint bleeding and crusting
  • Muscle and tissue soreness
  • High risk of scarring, hyper- and hypo-pigmentation in darker skin types
  • High risk of liver and kidney toxicity (more on this later!)

Put Your Supplements to Work

By | Products | No Comments

Be honest — when was the last time you actually had the recommended daily intake of fruit and veg in a single day? With the stresses and fast paced nature of life these days, it can be hard to get in those five to nine servings, and despite our best efforts we know that eating clean simply isn’t as clean as we might think.

If you’ve taken a gander at our earlier blogs this month, you might now know why supplementation is necessary and how it completes the big picture when it comes to our overall health. Sometimes even with the healthiest and most balanced diet we’re still coming short of hitting the optimal nutrient levels for our body to thrive.

Since arming you with the knowledge of what to look for in a supplement, especially when it comes to keep a glowing complexion, we want to give away our top tips for getting the most out of your supplements.

Beauty Hack: Swallow Your Skincare

By | Products | No Comments

No, not literally.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a quick and easy solution to beautiful skin? Something you could take before you go to sleep and wake up with a flawless, glowing complexion? Good news: there is, and we have it.

Ok, so maybe overnight is a bit of a stretch. As with anything, everything takes time and our skin is no exception to this. A good rule of thumb in determining your timeline to a clear complexion is to keep in mind how long you’ve seen the condition. Take that duration, then add six months. Just about every skin concern comes with an internal factor, and usually it’s brewing for a good few months before we see it on the surface of our skin.

Beautiful Skin Starts From Within

By | Products | No Comments

How do the things we consume reflect in our complexion?

We’re all guilty of choosing the not-so-healthy food options every now and again, but how often do we really stop and think about how our glow is affected? It’s pretty common sense to most of us that unhealthy choices may result in unhealthy skin, but how many of us are truly eating with our complexion in mind?

You’ve all heard the age old adage “you are what you eat”, but the bad news is that a good, balanced diet simply is just not good enough anymore. Thanks to modern life and industrial farming, our diets are not as clean as we think. As a matter of fact, a lot of the nutrients we think we’re getting from our diets are actually lost through growing conditions, storage and transportation, and then even further through cooking.

Is Sun Damage Reversible? It’s Possible… Read On

By | Skin Treatments | No Comments

The bad news: As much as we all love to soak up the sun, that bright beast is hyper-aging. Sun damage can occur every time you’re out in the sun without protection, and you may not even see the effects until years later or now since you’re interested in how to fix it.

UV radiation actually alters the DNA of your skin cells, causing fine lines, wrinkles, redness, brown spots and even cancer. 😱

Rosacea Skincare Products to Calm Redness and Inflammation

By | Products | No Comments

When it comes to treating absolutely any skin condition, it’s important to keep the 70:30 ratio of treatments to products in mind. About 70% of the results you can expect will come from in-clinic treatments, but it can be dependant on the other 30%, which accounts for your home care and how you condition your skin. Remember your acid mantle? That’s where we need to focus our efforts first and foremost. Whether it’s acne, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles or rosacea, without your acid mantle doing its job, everything else is a wasted effort. We must strengthen the barrier.
