Spring Beginnings

Are you looking forward to the “beauty” of Spring as much as me? 

This year has certainly tested many of us. The challenges and worries we have all had to face, have been real, but can I say, it has also shown us the power to stop and take mindful moments to evaluate our lives and self, with healthy intentions and heartfelt gratitude. 

Reminisce of a time when technology came in the form of a double tape deck to create the ultimate love song mixed tape and a good night in was a trip to the video store before snuggling up on the couch with my boyfriend.  

2020 in many ways has made me stop and reflect on life when it was just that little less complicated.  I am grateful and appreciate every day the comfort of my home and the surrounding environment. The ability to work from home and in some cases taking my work on the road, and when I say “road” I mean taking pen to paper, feeling the sand between my toes and taking in the intoxicating beauty of the Sunshine Coast and jotting down my thoughts of 2020 and beyond for Stephanies.   

This year could not have been achieved without the strength of those close to me. Together, with their support, they have guided me on this endearing journey to deliver on my business goals.

To my hubby Des, my fluffy fur family, friends and to all at Stephanies…. thank you.  

Our Spring beginnings blog is to simply say thank you for the incredible support you have shown us this year and thank you for being part of our Stephanies Spa family!  

This Spring, we intend to delight and inspire you with some exciting Bohemian Beauty spa rituals, spa events and to introduce you to some new delicious inner wellness products. 


A lovely industry friend of mine Sarah, talented therapist and spa owner of Ballarat’s Sanctuary Day Spa, sent me a private message about a product called IMBIBE, when I was doing research into gut health products

She expressed to me the fabulousness and benefits of these products; she has personally seen incredible results and the same with her own valued clients. So, I thought I would try IMBIBE and review them myself. Throughout the last six months, I have been seriously impressed… I have seen and felt firsthand the benefits of these Byron Bay inner beauty products. My skin, hair, nails and digestive system have improved out of sight!  

As we all know, beauty isn’t just about how you look on the outside, it starts from within. Looking after your inner health, specifically with a healthy lifestyle, good gut health, great nutrition and a balanced digestive system.  

Equally as important, is to compliment your inner health with a quality skincare routine at home and regular skin and spa therapies prescribed for you by our clever Stephanies Skin Experts.  

I can wholeheartedly recommend IMBIBE to our Stephanies family, these three potent, high-performance inner beauty rituals are 100% clean, non-toxic and organic and are all backed by science. Beaty Renewal, Miracle Collagen and Protect will make you feel great and you will see a fresh skin glow, shiny hair, strengthened nails and enhanced energy while providing support to your own immune system.  

To discover more, please go to IMBIBE on our website or in-spa at all Stephanies® locations.

NUTRICIA – The nutrition secret for dry skin

The latest in skin care direct from the Payot laboratories; NUTRICIA is a skincare range specifically designed for dry skin. It takes action not only on the signs of skin dryness, but also on the cause.

NURTICIA BY PAYOT

The concept was to develop a range of ultra-­nourishing and protective skincare products specifically formulated for dry skin made from a selection of highly effective active ingredients and formulated to embrace the senses with enveloping fragrance and sensorial textures. 

NUTRICIA NEW RANGE FROM PAYOT

Payot delivers the whys and hows of dry skin and the technology behind the NUTRICIA range. Here’s the breakdown:

DRY SKIN VS DEHYDRATED SKIN

Dry skin lacks lipids, particularly intercorneocyte lipids, resulting appearance of skin is dry with small “holes” in the skin barrier. Irritating agents and allergens penetrate the skin resulting in symptoms like redness, itchy skin, or inflammation.

NUTRICIA’S solution is to provide lipids (rich textures, emollients) to strengthen and repair the skin barrier.

Dehydrated skin on the other hand is the lack of water deep down; NUTRICIA’s treatment: provide water.

Dehydrated vs Dry skin

TECHNOLOGY BEHIND THE RANGE

The below ingredients make up this ultra hydrating range and have been researched extensively in the Payot laboratories.
