Spritzers : More than a revitalising skin care solution

Image

How often we dream of a fresh cleanse in the ocean for a good dose of vitamin sea. And, it’s no lie a swim in the sea is a great remedy to refresh and revitalise but not often a practical solution during a working week when we are busy on the go. However spritzers are a lightweight, beach in a bottle solution with added ingredients to benefits our skin during the day or evening. Stephanies spas stock two beautiful mists and the benefits speak for themselves.

Maximise your cleansing routine, Expert Beauty Tips from Stephanies® Luxury Spas

Cleansing is critical in the eyes of a beauty therapist and it’s no lie that it does take a little effort; there is thus far no downloadable APP for face cleansing!

A good facial cleanse will freshen, hydrate and prepare you for the day ahead or a good night sleep in bed. The long-term effect of leaving makeup or grime from the day over night on your skin means impurities are left on skin and leads to oily, problematic skin and premature ageing due to the breakdown of collagen caused by the pollutants left on your skin. So with a few beauty tips and the correct cleansing products that suit you and your skin type your NEW CLEANSING routine begins now. 

Stephanies® therapists suggest the following:

chloe2

1. Get organised and keep clean soft washers handy as well as cotton rounds.  Get educated and choose a cleanser and freshener that suit both your skin type and your lifestyle.

2. Keep your cleanser in the shower. As soap on face is a no go zone.  Reach for your cleanser, apply, massage all over face and neck, rinse, repeat.

3. If a shower is out of the question, apply your favourite cleanser with a cotton round or with clean hands in massaging movements and remove with warm clean wet washer.

4. Freshener time. Pat dry your face and neck, apply freshener to cotton round to refresh and hydrate your clean skin.  A travel size spray freshener is also a  good way to spritz on face, neck and décolletage during the day to maintain hydration.

5. Moisturise.  Gently press a pea size amount of suitable  moisturiser with fingertips to work all those good ingredients that hydrate and protect  the skin. Concentrate on cheeks, temples and forehead in gentle sweeping upward movements.  Not only gets blood moving to these cells to improve complexion but self massage is a wonderful way to get those neuron’s firing too.

Enticing and a great way to try Payot if you haven’t used before, depending on your skin care needs of course.  Having tried Payot or not a must have for those wishing to start or expand their cleansing kit is Payot’s Pre Cleansing Oil. When asked, both Stephanie (CEO and Owner) and Heather (Spa Manager) in tandem exclaimed; “I love it”.  This cleansing oil can be incorporated into any skin care program with the ability to remove stubborn waterproof makeup and daily impurities.

Stephanies proudly stocks Australian Made – Synergie Skin, developed by chemist Terri Venison and is Australia’s go to cosmeceutical skin care brand and is no fad.  All product ingredients are clinically verified with clinical data and supported by science. 

Terri’s tips on cleansing:

  1. Cleanse daily and apply skin serums, particularly Vitamin A (retinol), Vitamin B (niacinamide) and Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid). These cosmeceuticals are essential for maintaining ageing skin.
  2. Extend your daily and evening treatment moisturiser to your neck. Products like Synergie Skin Reclaim have ingredients designed to firm and promote collagen production
  3. Apply your daily sun protection or UV protective mineral makeup. Mineral sun protection using zinc oxide is preferable over chemical sunscreens.
  4. Do not sleep with your head elevated on high pillows as this can contribute to the appearance of a slack jawline

Terri is truly passionate about wellbeing and life, and cleansing the body in its entireity as a way of life. Great mantra to live by we think!
