Winter Beauty Tips

Winter Beauty Tips

Feel fab not drab this Winter with our maintenance tips on skin, hair and beauty during Winter!

Here’s some of our handy tips for maintaining your skin during Winter:

  • Swap your water-based moisturiser for an oil-based one as it helps lock the moisture in. Use the moisturiser several times in a day for soft skin.
  • Don’t forget the sunscreen when you’re stepping out.
  • Stay hydrated to keep the dryness at bay. Water is an excellent lubricant to keep your skin soft and supple.
  • Avoid scalding hot baths, however nice they may feel. Stick to lukewarm water to retain the moisture in your skin so that your skin doesn’t dry out.

If you feel that your Winter skins needs some serious TLC, we have many amazing facials and treatments that will improve your skin health, including:

  • Oxygen facials
  • Relaxing facials
  • Hydrafacials
  • Skin Peels
  • Microdermabrasion

Here’s some of our Winter makeup tips:

  • Choose colours that complement the weather. Use browns or greys to make your eyes pop in the cold season.
  • If you suffer from dry skin, apply a lotion before doing your makeup. Dab on just a little if your skin is oily.
  • Opt for a creamy liquid foundation for a smooth finish.

Don’t forget that our team of professional make-up artists are available to create a stunning look for any special occasion. Using only the best handpicked products in the makeup industry.

Here’s some of our hair tips to avoid the Winter frizz:

  • Use lukewarm water to wash your hair and don’t skimp on the conditioner.
  • Prevent dandruff with a regular oil head/hair massage. Add a few drop of lemon juice to the oil and do this at least once a week.
  • Cover your hair when you go out as the cold wind damages the strands.
  • Get regular trims to avoid split ends.

Don’t forget that we now offer hair styling services at our Boutique Medispa at Gregory Hills, including; bombshell curls, sleek straighten, or choose from our braid bar styles.

We hope we’ve got you covered for your Winter skin, hair and beauty tips!

Skin Care Health for Winter

Skin Care Health for Winter

The combination of windy, cold, dry weather outside and humidity-depleting heaters indoors works to drain our skin of vital moisture during the Winter months. Our dewy, hydrated summer glow can quickly fade to a dull and ashy appearance. Keep reading to find out about our skin care tips for Winter to keep your skin health in check!

Here are some reasons why your skin might be feeling drier during Winter, other than the obvious (the weather!):

  • You’re taking longer and warmer baths
  • You’re using the same facial cleanser you used during Summer
  • You’re not using a humidifier
  • Your moisturizer is not enough
  • You’re not exfoliating
  • You stopped applying sunscreen

Although you may be thinking that adding additional moisture into your skin care routine will keep your skin health in check this Winter, there’s a lot more you can do

Here’s 10 important things you should be doing for your skin and body during the Winter months:

  1. Drink lots of water
  2. Avoid really hot showers
  3. Remember oily skin and hydrated skin are not the same thing
  4. If you’re not already, use night cream
  5. Exfoliation is key
  6. Add a serum to your skin routine
  7. Switch to a body oil rather than a moisturising cream
  8. Coconut oil is your friend
  9. Consider changing your makeup products
  10. Sleep on silk

Some of our handy hints for your face skin care routine during Winter –

  1. Wash your face in lukewarm water. Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter, but when you can, particularly when just washing your face (or hands!), choose lukewarm water to avoid stripping as many oils away from the skin.
  2. Then moisturise immediately afterwards. Your skin not only needs more moisture, but moisturise right after you wash your face. Choose your moisturiser carefully as some super-market moisturisers have petroleum-based ingredients that can actually further dry your skin in the winter months. Be sure to choose a smart formula that has natural, nourishing ingredients. Go for an oil-based rather than a water-based solution, as it’s more likely to help your skin retain moisture in the winter.
  3. Change your cleanser as cleansers can be extremely drying to the skin. If you’re used to using options that contain glycolic or salicylic acid, rotate with a more hydrating version that contains moisturizing ingredients.After cleansing, don’t leave the skin naked for more than 30 seconds, as this can dehydrate it, leading to increased dryness. Apply a hydrating toner and moisturizer to seal in moisture.

Some extra products we recommend adding to your skin care routine during Winter –

  • Use a sheet mask for moisture – Sheet masks allow rejuvenating ingredients to really soak into the skin
  • Always carry a lip balm – by regularly applying a hydrating balm, they can stay ahead of the dryness
  • Make sure you are still applying sunscreen everyday, including on your hands, neck and face

If you need some expert help from our skin specialists, you can book in for a free Visia Skin Analysis Face Scan & Full Consultation to help you on your skin health journey during Winter. Every Visia Skin Analysis Face Scan and Full Consultation is redeemable on all services and products over $99! We will help you choose the right products for you during the cooler months and beyond.

Everything You Need to Know About Vascular Treatments

Everything You Need to Know About Vascular Treatments

We are proud to use Cynosure’s innovative laser technology in our vein treatments, known as our Vascular service.

With this treatment you can finally stop covering up unsightly spider veins and broken blood vessels. Our vein treatments help people get back their confidence and reveal their beautiful selves.

How it works:
Vein treatments use advanced laser technology to target and destroy the blood vessels responsible for veins, causing them to visibly disappear. Since the laser targets the blood vessels within the vein, there is minimal or no damage to the outer layer of skin.

Treatment pain:
Patients describe a range of sensations from tingling to the snap of a rubber band during the treatment.

Treatment length:
Treatments can take anywhere from 5-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

Amount of treatments needed:
A series of treatments may be needed to fully clear blood vessels and reduce the appearance of the veins completely. Typically, one to four sessions are needed for desired results.

Expected results:
Many patients experience immediate improvement in the appearance of their veins following the treatment followed by continued improvement over the next week or so.

Vein treatments offered and pricing:
Full face – $350
Half face – $175
Spot treatments starting from $50
Cherry Angioma – from $50
Skin tag removal – from $70
