It’s important to take care of our health right now – physical, mental and emotional. As mask wearing becomes a necessity for some of us, it’s important to acknowledge our feelings and be kind to ourselves, as we do our part for the community.
With social distancing we’re already feeling cut off from people around us. Adding a mask can feel like we’re limiting the connection even further. Once we adjust, we can remind ourselves of the intent of wearing a mask - keeping ourselves, our loved ones and the rest of the community safe.
At stressful or uncertain times, a massage or a facial can be just what the doctor ordered. They both provide a significant number of benefits - physically, emotionally and spiritually.
If you’re thinking about getting one for the first time, endota educator, Kimberley Duck recommends you start with endota’s signature Organic Relax Massage or Organic Infusion Facial. They’re gentle and calming, providing the perfect introduction to the healing power of spa treatments.
We all love a facial. The blissful relaxation, calming aromas and glowing skin as you leave the spa. But it shouldn’t stop there. By using professional quality skincare at home as part of your regular routine, you can extend and even enhance the results of your facial.
“We often say that 70% of results are from what you do at home and 30% is what we do for you in-spa. A quality at home routine is crucial if you want to achieve outstanding results and it prepares your skin to get the most out of your next treatment,” endota educator Tamara Noske said.
Social Media feeds are often filled with images of people in yoga poses that are meant to inspire, but instead they often look impossible – and can actually discourage people from giving yoga a go. What these images often fail to highlight, is that simply getting on your mat to practice has many positive benefits beyond the physical. Yoga can also offer a general sense of wellbeing that can translate to other areas of your life. Anyone can find a style of yoga that is suitable and accessible for them and makes them look and feel more positive - well after they step off the mat.read more
Facials are a great way to look after and nourish your skin and address its biggest concerns. But not all facials are created equal. Some are developed to give your skin a boost of nourishment and hydration, and restore a sense of calm. While others are more targeted to tackle your specific concerns and focused on delivering results.
endota’s New Age Customised Facial is a results-based treatment that uses new technology to detect imperfections and infuse active ingredients into your skin for transformative results.
“Our skin uses light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells,” explains Helen Robb-Lacey, head of endota Wellness College. “LED Light Therapy provides skin with a boost of this energy, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, increases circulation and accelerates tissue repair.”read more
Bring out your cashmere sweaters and stock up on active-packed skincare, because winter is here. Just as you layer your cold-weather clothes when the temperature drops, you should take a similar approach to your beauty routine.
“During winter, you really want to feed and nourish the skin,” says endota Wellness College CEO, Helen Robb-Lacey.
Nature is all about positive change. New seasons bring rebirth and renewal, reminding us that every change is an opportunity for a new and improved beginning. Our skin is no exception and every 30 or so days, our cells renew themselves and shed evidence of sun damage, pollution, hormonal changes and other negative factors.read more
Eye creams can get a bit of a bad rap for being somewhat superfluous. Do you really need a separate product to pat around your peepers when you’ve got a perfectly good face moisturiser you could use?
The short answer is yes.

Quality of sleep can significantly impact your health, wellbeing and every aspect of your life. Your skin can reveal the effects of peaceful or disrupted slumber even after a single night. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing.
Giving your body adequate time to rest and restore can help protect your mental and physical health, quality of life and safety. Sleep is closely linked with hormonal health, while hormonal balance regulates our sleep cycles.
While maintaining your beauty regime is important to keep your skin active and healthy, this aspect of self-care also helps revitalise your mental and spiritual wellbeing. And as we start emerging from our hibernation, we all need a little nurturing and care.read more

The term ‘self-care’ is one we hear a lot these days. What does it mean to you? It’s likely to mean something different to all of us. Since we’ve been staying in a lot lately, many people might think it’s all about face masks, bubble baths and banana bread. It can be easy to associate self-care with the things we do solely for ourselves – to bring about relaxation and enjoy some ‘me’ time. And this is absolutely a part of it.read more

Those childish features transform into the more mature version of themselves, giving us a glimpse at the grown-up person they will soon become.

Our body changes more during pregnancy than at any other time in our lives. Growing a new life is hard work, and we dutifully accept some of the necessary physical changes, but when we think of stretchmarks and spider veins we solemnly hope that we will somehow manage a clean escape. __br__ The reality is, most women will experience some skin changes during pregnancy. Most of these changes will be temporary and resolve after birth, but some may bear a permanent reminder of the physical investment their body made to bring precious new life to the world.read more

Menopause and Beyond
Thanks to adequate nutrition, modern medicine and technology, human life expectancy has increased over the past 150 years. Female life expectancy exceeds that of males and is approximately 82 years in Australia. The average age of menopause has remained stable at 45-55 years. This means that women will most likely live for 30-40 years post menopause. The dramatic shift in hormone levels after menopause means we must learn to adapt and thrive in a changed body, either accepting or becoming more active in the fight against ageing, particularly when it comes to the look and feel of our skin.read more

We often think we have to look outside of ourselves to find true wisdom and inspiration. But when we are balanced in our bodies and at peace with ourselves, we naturally tune in to our own authentic power and discover insights from within. Just begin by being relaxed with who you are. As self-acceptance builds, niggling doubts and fears simply fall away. With a renewed attitude we can ‘be the inspiration’ we wish to experience in the world. Take some time to think about the kinds of qualities that you admire in others. Express these in yourself and feel how they replenish the wellspring of ‘my best me’. Being your best self not only evokes an inner light, it has the potential to illuminate the lives of everyone around us – making a beautiful difference in the world.
Be here now
Each new season marks a perfect time for renewal. So how do we make the most of our time right now? There are few things in life as simple or potentially life-changing as practicing mindfulness. A big word which essentially means bringing the power of your full attention into the present moment. Mindfulness is not about adopting some complicated technique or rigorous mental training. Simply start with awakening to your physical senses; focus on your breath, and hold each moment gently as you move through life. Be mindful of your feelings, thoughts and all that you’re experiencing without slipping into the past, or racing into the future. Soon you’ll find that your energy and spirit is lifted as stress and worries fall away.
Summertime... What better way to wile away some relaxing hours than to spend time with
endota’s exciting new magazine.
We’re so delighted to welcome you to our first edition – launching this month. Each season we’ll bring you more inspiration and greater reasons to live your life wholeheartedly; tuned into simple pleasures, engaged in thoughtful connections with your extended tribe.
