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:


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.


If you find your still reaching out for that liquid soap for a quick face freshen please, please, please, STOP!  Stephanies® carry professional skincare options, quality cleansing products  and skin care solutions to take care of your individuals skin type and concerns.

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!

Skin care for workouts, what’s on the list?

Chip Wilson (Lululemon) and Lorna Jane (Lorna Jane Fitness Wear‎) have us kitted up in the best workout gear ever so let’s not forget face and extremities. Skin is our major organ, gets lots of exposure and therefore needs some attention to.  If it’s a workout or an outdoors romp in our often harsh weather conditions there are few essential skin care products to have handy before you head for that park PT session.

We aren’t talking layers of makeup or larger than life ruby red lips (as the latest Vogue article recently pointed out is ultimately not good for our pores – see reference Five reasons why you shouldn’t wear make-up during a workout.…/what+youre+really+doing+to+your+s…) However, a good lip gloss to keep lips conditioned, sunscreen with an SPF factor, and a waterproof mascara (if this is your staple) can give your face and your confidence a little lift while working out.

As far as outside workouts go it’s essential to use an SPF.  For extra coverage a tinted moisturiser or BB Cream with SPF will keep your anti ageing regime in check.  

At Stephanies we stock a number of skin care brands and recommend the following products that are workout proof:

payot skin careFrench and ultimately fit for Australian conditions the Payot Sunsensi range is flawless, hydra rich, very SPF conscious, and is definitely worth the splurge. Sunsensi is an anti-aging suncare line, with  quadruple protection power and pumped with vitamins. These products come highly recommended as pre and post workout skincare.

Post workout you can’t go  past Payot’s post body care to moisturise, beautify and firm for a healthy body and mind. Hydra24 Corps is a hydrating, firming treatment for a youthful body. For those into firming try Celluli Ultra Performance – a corrective care for cellulite with centella asiatica extracts.

Mineral make up lovers have the choice of Jane Iredale’s range; flaunted by makeup artists and therapists as the go to mineral makeup.JI’s dry powder based mineral broad spectrum which is also  Skin Cancer Foundation recommended provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and UVA P+++ protection that is water resistant for up to 40 minutes. Powder-Me SPF can be used on the body, face and scalp for aUVB/UVA SPF 30 protection. It contains titanium dioxide and a natural clay dried in the sun and is completely free of contaminants and atmospheric pollutants. Available in three shades: Translucent, Tanned and New Golden.  Base powder with smattering of Jane Iredale’s pure gloss will keep  you looking mint during the toughest of workouts.

If its Australian made and cosmeceutical look no further than Synergy Skin – Clean Science® where scientific breakthroughs combine naturally derived ingredients to protect, change & nurture. ÜberZinc and ÜberZinc Body = amazing.  ÜberZinc Essential Daily Moisturiser (50ml) is suitable for all skin types, offering broad spectrum protection in a light natural base with added pure green tea to neutralise free radicals. This new sheer Zinc Oxide sun block is termed a physical sunscreen as it physically sits on top of the skin and reflects ALL UV light – both UVA and UVB. Überzinc Body is the ultimate in protection and hydration for all body areas exposed to UV light. It combines the UV protective and healing qualities of 21% zinc oxide, with vitamin D3 to helps replenish low vitamin D levels that may be caused as a result of reduced UV exposure. Unlike traditional natural sun protectors Überzinc Body feels like a luxurious, non-greasy and deeply hydrating hand and body lotion. Überzinc Body is a physical sunscreen and will not absorb into the skin.

thalgo skin careThalgo’s BBCream is one of Stephanies best sellers and despite the fact that BB Cream might seem passe Thalgo’s perfect glow BB in three shades and a Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is an essential sport bag face lifter.

Don’t discount a good smattering of gloss or mascara if that’s your inspiration. As Michelle Bridges touts new gear can be just what you need to cure the couch potatoe in us all.  So get active grab your new gym gear, get your skin care essentials, and move, move, move.
