When pizza is life 🙌🏼🍕
At the end of a long day, nothing feels quite as good as cleansing your face. It’s actually my ‘not so guilty’ pleasure! Removing every trace of dirt, sweat, stress, SPF and makeup allows the skin to breathe, repair and renew itself. Creating a spotless surface helps all other skin products to penetrate your skin more deeply and perform their tasks more efficiently. With so many cleansing options it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and get sucked in by false marketing claims. Knowing the difference between each type of cleanser allows you to filter and understand your options and makes the hunt for the perfect cleansing product a whole lot easier. As a Skin Specialist it is imperative that my clients know why I have recommended a particular formulation/type of cleanser. What it’s purpose is and why this formulation suits their skin over other types. Here is my ‘no nonsense’ guide to some of the popular cleansers available - Gel cleansers - These are clear and, as the name suggests, have a gel-like consistency. Generally designed for deep cleansing, they are effective at decongesting clogged pores, removing excess oil and killing acne-causing bacteria, thanks to their antiseptic and exfoliating properties. Cream cleansers are usually thick, creamy and contain moisturizing ingredients like botanical oils. They gently cleanse your skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Cream cleansers can also come in the form of “milk” or “lotion.” Foam cleansers are lightweight cleansers that start out as cream or gel and burst into a rich, foamy lather. This type of cleanser removes excess oil as effectively as gel cleansers. Oil cleansers may sound like a recipe for breakouts, especially if you have oily skin, but most experts disagree. An oil cleanser is a gentle way of removing pore-clogging debris—including waterproof makeup—without drying your skin. It can also be used as a pre-cleanse. Clay cleansers are known for their absorbing power to purify your skin by drawing out excess oil and toxins from your pores. Let’s discuss all things ‘SKIN’ @shawellness from 15-31 August.

Ageing is sexy. It is currently a period of our life that we are are going to be spending far longer in than any other stage of living. Ageing is no longer determined just by our chronological age but is very much dictated by our biological age and the many factors that contribute towards this. One biological factor for women, is that we start to deplete in the key female hormones such as progesterone from as early as our mid 30s and oestrogen which is the driving force behind how our skin looks as early as the peri-menopausal years. During menopause we see this as a 30% loss in collagen in the first 5 years and then 2.1% every year thereafter plus a 1.1% decline in skin thickness every year postmenopausal. Menopausal skin is often dry, dull, thinning, lacking in volume and with a vast decline in elasticity. HRT and topical Estrodial have previously been the only ‘players’ in offering support during this period, however as recommended guidelines still raise concerns regarding long term safety and use and medical studies advising that use should be no more than 5 years (due to the systemic build up). What other options do we have? And here comes MEP Technology. 10 years in the making and scientifically back by endless clinical papers, peer reviewed journals, blinded studies. As a Dermal Therapist, evidence based research is my passion and what I’m hugely motivated by, to back up any skin claim made. I’m also not a huge advocate of publicly recommending particular brands until a full and comprehensive skin screening takes place between myself and my client. However, @emepelle_ausnz is something that has completely stopped me in my tracks and is going to be the next and biggest game changer to our skin when it comes to treating the visible effects of menopause. DM me for further information. Or meet me in person @shawellness from 15-31 August.
How much do you know about the products you buy? Does your Skin Therapist explain the formulation to you to determine what product is right for your skin? The distinct ‘key’ ingredients that would be unique for what your skin requires, and scientifically how this formulation works to create optimum results. For example, when you buy a Moisturiser, do you know what formulation you have purchased and how that works for your skin type? Did you know their are 3 methods to better hydrate/lubricate the skin. 1. Emollients Emollients fill in any spaces or gaps between skin cells that are missing Moisturising lipids. Usually oil-based, although they can be water-based. Emollients fill lthe space, the skin becomes smoother and better hydrated. Key ingredients: Lanolin, mineral oil and petrolatum Works best for: Extremely dry, dehydrated mature skin that needs serious moisture 2. Ceramides Naturally found in the skin, damaged or depleted ceramide levels show up as dry, damaged skin. Ceramides are better able to retain moisture. Key ingredients: Ceramides Works best for: Normal and combination skin types, minimal dryness and those with eczema. 3. Occlusives Designed to douse the skin in moisture, occlusive agents are heavy in nature and are usually recommended more for the body and not as much for the face. Key ingredients: Rose hip, avocado and hazelnut oils Works best for: More mature, dehydrated skin that’s void of an environment with any humidity. If your skin is reactive or blemish prone it’s best to stay away from occlusive moisturisers. Let’s discuss this in more detail. Exclusively collaborating with @shawellness from 15-31 August.

AH HA HONEY 🍯 ⚡️ CHECK OUT THIS TRANSFORMATION!!! Sooooooooo exciting!!!!!!!!! Skin By Chantal 🧚‍♀️
One of my favourite masks has got to be a clay mask. 🧖🏽‍♀️✨ Since being a teenager I have always suffered with an oily skin. 🤦‍♀️ I have all the general characteristics; breakouts, open pores oily shine. You name it, I have the lot! 😩 Using a clay mask not only detoxifies my skin but it also absorbs the excess oil and helps to keep my skin clear. (YAY for clear skin!) 🙌🏼 **SKIN HACK**💡 Try spot treating the clay mask over breakouts instead of picking them Dry skin- Although clay masks may seem off limits to a dry skin, by keeping the mask damp and stopping the ‘drying effect’ the ingredients will help to brighten a dull ageing skin ✔️
