Regul8 Digestive Tune Up Tablets for Gut Health

Gut health isn’t the most glamorous topic, but it definitely is an important one. The state of our gut not only impacts our skin but also our moods and mental health. Hippocrates even said, ‘all disease begins in the gut.’ After receiving a few DMK Enzyme Treatments at Vanessa Phillips Skin and Beauty, she mentioned to me that it might be worthwhile trialling the Regul8 herbal gut cleanse system to help keep my skin clear and increase my energy levels. As a disclaimer, I am not a health professional. It is always recommend you visit your own doctor before taking new supplements. Listen to your own body and remember our bodies are different, so what works for some people may not work for others.IMG_2063.JPG

Tips for Packing your Travel Beauty Stash

As a beauty junkie, packing for a trip away is one of the most challenging tasks. In the past I have always overestimated how many products I need – leading to a stupidly heavy suitcase, a sore back and excess luggage fees. Along the way I have figured out the best way to pack my products while still feeling like I have enough with me.

The Beauty Aficionados Series

On the surface, the beauty industry seems overly glamorous and plastic and is often criticised as being superficial. At the roots, beauty is all about self-confidence. Beauty has little to do with how that red lipstick makes you look – it’s how that red lipstick makes you feel. I spoke to four industry professionals who shared with me their passion for beauty and making people feel their best.

Erin Norden, Owner of Clean Beauty Market

With her calming and personable nature, it was no surprise when Erin told me she enjoys being able to connect with people at her store, Clean Beauty Market. “Even though it sounds a bit silly when you talk about products, it’s actually really powerful when you help people find things that improve their confidence. It makes people quite happy when they find products that they love,” she says.

Erin’s must-haves: Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm, Kjaer Weis Lipgloss, Osea Cleansing Milk, Hynt Beauty Concealer.

Signature look: an even base, a hint of mascara and natural-looking brows.

Sometimes things just don’t go your way and you have a pretty crappy day. We’ve all been there. Whenever I’ve had had a shocking day, one of my favourite things to do is try to relax and give myself a pamper. Here are a few suggestions you can do to try and make yourself feel a bit better…

  1. Take a warm shower: you want to wash yourself from head to toe to cleanse off the day. Use a deep cleansing shampoo, hair mask, exfoliate and use a hydrating body wash.
  2. Post-shower, pop on the kettle and a hydrating mask: drink some herbal tea while you relax with a sheet mask on for a few minutes.
  3. Apply the rest of your skincare then put on a snuggly robe: the fluffier the robe the better.
  4. Dry off your hair: if you are a hair wizard*, do some nice blow out. I don’t know about you but if my hair is on point I feel a lot better. *I unfortunately am not but the feeling of dry, clean hair is nice enough.
  5. Binge-watch Friends: Friends fixes everything. Don’t fight me on this.
