5 Reasons to Cleanse Your Skin

Are you cleansing your skin correctly to get the best benefits? Why is cleansing important you ask?

 1.    Cleansers are made specifically for the face.

Cleansing milks are particularly gentle and suitable for most skin types.  They assist in removing all makeup, dirt, grime, and pollutions from the environment. Leaving your skin feeling clean, fresh and comfortable. Tip for our makeup lovers ~ We recommend double cleansing as the first cleanse will remove your makeup and the second cleanse is your TRUE SKIN Cleanse. Even if you are not wearing makeup you’re not out of the woods yet. During the day sweating, going out in traffic, or just sitting still, pollutants from the environment accumulate on your skin.

2.   Eye Makeup Removers or Cleansers are formulated to work gently on the eye region.

Removing your eye makeup with the correct product will gently dissolve your mascara and eye makeup without harsh rubbing or dragging of this delicate area. The skin around the eyes is particularly thin and sensitive therefore we recommend using a product that has been created especially for this area of the face. It will eliminate makeup that is gentle and kinder on your eye contour area. If you use waterproof mascara, you will need an oil-based eye makeup remover. TIP: Nourish with an eye gel or cream 1-2 times daily. 

Thalgo Express Makeup Remover (125ml) $42.00

Thalgo Eveil A La Mer Express Make-Up Remover can be used on both the eyes and lips. Removes all traces of make-up, including waterproof. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive.

3.    Refine skin and remove all trace elements of grime and pollutants.

Using a  cleansing toner or lotion will finalise the cleansing process.  In this stage of your cleansing routine, you will remove final traces of cleanser and rebalance the skin. Toning promotes enhanced penetration from your treatment serums and creams that are working actively to repair, hydrate and balance skin.

4.    Ask yourself this?

Do you shampoo and condition your hair? Cleansing and toning for the face is the same 🙂

5.    Your skin is your biggest organ.

So, don’t forget the skin on the rest of your body. It’s the flexible outer covering that acts as the barrier, protecting the body from harmful things in the outside world such as moisture, the cold and sun rays, as well as germs and toxic substances. It also helps with temperature regulation, immune defence, vitamin production, and sensation.  So use a mild cleanser or light soap for an all over body skin cleanse. Keep water temperature warm (not hot) ~ too hot has a drying effect.  For rough areas like our backs or bumps on bums, a cleansing exfoliant works a treat. Try our la Vie elixir Macadamia Scrub, followed up by la Vie elixir Lapis Crème for all over hydration.

24 Years and a Heartfelt Thankyou!

Stephanies Urban Spa, Bulimba turns 24!

What an achievement, an absolute blessing and a great opportunity for me to let you know where we’ve come from, what we stand for and most importantly, to say THANK YOU.

Stephanie Shepherd

So to you and to all of our Clients a heartfelt thank you for entrusting my teams and myself to care for your skin, beauty and provide you with divine spa treatments for over two decades!

I am so proud and extremely grateful!

I started in the beauty industry at 16 with a head full of ideas, dreams and visions. I worked hard, learning and evolving and finally opened my own Salon with Stephanies Natural Beauty at Camp Hill in 1994. This was a two treatment room salon where I worked six days and two nights a week, loving every moment and igniting a dream to create outstanding day spas that truly deliver an unforgettable experience in every aspect.

And so the journey began, my business philosophy was established! This guided my decisions and actions then, and continues now to guide Stephanies Luxury Spa Group today:

“Embrace new technologies, respect ancient rituals, step away from the ordinary and create breathtaking treatments”

This birthday celebration is a perfect time to acknowledge you for embracing our philosophy and initiatives.

From those two treatment rooms in Camp Hill, we now have an outstanding team of 60 staff, five exquisite Day Spas and an amazing Head Office building with training facilities, conference room facilities and our very own commercial spa laundry.

Securing success in an ever-changing, difficult market has been as constantly challenging as it is rewarding. However, we are committed to delivering unsurpassed guest service and unparalleled spa therapies which have earned us a reputation for excellence within the Australian Spa industry, together with 12 National and International Awards.

Our Birthday celebrations are a perfect time to give back to you for your ongoing support and sharing your lives with us and for allowing Stephanies to be an active part of the communities in which we operate!
