Our skin is the largest organ in our body, acting as a physical and biological barrier and gatekeeper between our internal and external environment. Our skin keeps us alive by preventing organ dehydration and infection. The structure of our skin gives it the ability to do this, so let’s take a closer look.read more

Acne Relief for Teenage Skin
It seems to happen overnight. Our children begin to look and sound more like adults. Those childish features transform into the more mature version of themselves, giving us a glimpse at the grown-up person they will soon become. During puberty, our children morph in appearance, they mature psychologically and start to develop and express social and sexual attitudes. It is during this pivotal developmental stage that we are also confronted with acne and acne-related skin problems.read more

Pregnancy and your Skin
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.
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.

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

No time to relax?

When we think of the strong women we know, that we are, or would like to be, what traits most come to mind? Perhaps we admire the verve of great female leaders, the panache of gifted speakers, the bold risk-takers, or exceptional multi-taskers. Yet when we look deeper, the qualities that a strong woman embodies amount to more than just a sum of impressive skills
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.
