Essential Beauty Tools Header

There are so many beauty tools available these days and new ones are popping up all the time. I have never bothered to count how many beauty tools or gadgets I have because I am sure the number would make me queasy, but when it comes to everyday use I have three very important tools that you will always find in my shower.  Continue Reading

There is one compliment I get that really freaks me out sometimes. Actually, all the time. You see, sometimes when someone touches my skin, whether it be from shaking my hand, bumping up against me or just mid-makeout session, I am told I have really soft skin. This isn’t a new thing …. this is something that has been said to me for at least the last 15 years. Strange right?

At first I just thought that people were insane, like had they not felt skin before? Then I thought they were just being creepy or coming on to me. And finally I just thought that the people they were touching hadn’t heard of moisturiser ….. but then just a few days ago, it finally hit me why my skin is probably as soft as it is. So today I am going to spill the secrets and let you know how I keep my skin soooooo soft.

Body sponges, will they do the trick?

A little while ago I did a Sunday Funday Poll where I asked you if you Dry Body Brush. I was a little surprised to see that the majority of respondents chose “I don’t know what that is”. So today I wanted us all to start off the new year fresh with a little educational post on what is Dry Body Brushing and a guide on how to do it.

What Is Dry Body Brushing?

Dry brushing is a process of using a bristle brush on your skin for a variety of holistic benefits. It is believed, and strongly supported by many scientific studies, that regular brushing of your skin increases circulation, stimulates elimination of cellulite, and softens and smoothes your skin surface.

It can also improve lymphatic drainage, sluggish immune systems and poor digestion. The process works best when carried out daily, but even occasional dry body brushing is enough have some good results.

You know how I love me a spa treatment every now and then, well something I usually tend to avoid is spa treatments that have a health angle. I am really not great when it comes to maintaing any form of a healthy lifestyle. I don’t exercise, my diet is all sugar or chocolate and I have never even had a blood test. I wish live autopsies were possible because I would love to know how hideous my insides are.

A few weeks ago I was telling someone about my devastating health habits and they told about the Alkaline Spa & Clinic in Potts Point, Sydney. As soon as I heard ‘spa’ I was drawn in but then they proceeded to tell me about how all their treatments are based around healthy stuff. Ok, so that was a tad less inspiring …. but I love spa treatments!

After looking over the website I got a little more enthusiastic. They offer everything from Natropaths to Colonics, but the treatment menu was the gold mine. I was lucky enough to be offered a complimentary treatment and the one I wanted to try was their Signature Detox Massage.

What Is the Signature Detox Massage?

Alkaline Spa and Clinic has unveiled their new signature Massage – 75 minutes of pure de-stressing and rejuvenation by combining some of the best techniques including lymphatic drainage, stimulating reflex points, body, face and scalp massage, and Dry Body Brushing.

Alkaline’s signature Massage has been designed to target the build up of toxins stress, wellbeing, and immune function.

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
