Tea Detox

Packed with an array of rich vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, herbal teas are the perfect go-to for a spring detox. Endorsed by the likes of Kylie Jenner and Vanessa Hudgens, the herbal tea trend is growing in strength and popularity, providing a healthy alternative to regular tea and coffee.

The history of herbal tea dates back thousands of years, with reports of monks utilising the power of green tea to help stay focused and alert during prolonged meditation rituals. The therapeutic brews possess a range of health-boosting qualities; they are detoxifying, anti-ageing, immune boosting, fat-burning, mood boosting, and bone strengthening.

Whether you are wanting to curb your coffee cravings, or treat your body to a full detox, herbal tea is the way to go! There are a variety of herbal brews available, from the humble green tea, to exotic jasmine blends – it’s all about finding the perfect fit for your taste buds!

Inspired by the astonishing healing power of herbal tea, Stephanies® has crafted a range of french-inspired La Vie Elixir flower tea infusions. Four sophisticated, sumptuous blends are available to take home from Bulimba, Sofitel, and Cleveland spas.

Meditation

In this chaotic world that we live in everyone is time-poor, and it’s often hard to find the time to reflect and rebalance. With schedules, timelines and one-hundred-and-one other things running through our heads, many of us have lost the ability to simply stop… and escape into a moment of nothingness.

Born in the heart ancient India, the art of meditation is a skill that has been practiced for thousand of years. There is an ancient zen adage – “you should sit in meditation every day for twenty minutes, unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.” Even if you can spare five minutes a day, it’s important to take time to de-stress and re-group – the results will astound you.

Research shows regular meditation has the ability to reduce stress levels, relieve anxiety, reduce blood pressure, improve mood and behaviour, increase energy levels and improve clarity and peace-of-mind – something i’m sure most of us could use more of!

Mineral Makeup

The cake face is out, and mineral makeup is IN! New trends have seen women abandoning traditional heavy foundations, and replacing them with lighter mineral blends. The all natural alternative to regular foundation has an array of skin benefits. The absence of harmful filters such as talc, binders, chemical preservatives and chemical dyes means skin is treated to an all natural coverage that won’t block pores or damage the skin. Mineral makeups also help with redness, dryness, and blemishes, and allows the skin to breathe throughout the day – and they actually have a longer shelf life too!

Beauty Tips

At Stephanies® we use the beautiful mineral makeup collection by Jane Iredale. “Her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one…every product in the line is multi-functional” (Jane Iredale). Her stunning collection is “created in various formulations to suit your needs, and in shades to flatter a wide range of skin tones, it’s like therapy for your skin” (Jane Iredale).

The health benefits of spa treatments aren’t just skin deep, but have lasting effects on your overall health and wellness.
