Whether you choose to spend your free time by the beach, surrounded by nature in the middle of a game reserve or beside a pool, fact is, if it is summer and there is sun involved, no matter how careful you are, there is always the risk of sunburn. espite health warnings about sun damage, many people still subject their skins to the sun's burning rays. Studies show that more than one-third of adults and nearly 70% of children had sunburn within the past year.

Probio Sense Article Image 233x207 Probiotic care for a balanced skin

Up to 7 billion bacteria, fungi, viruses and single-cell organisms live on our skin – however, most of these are not harmful to us in any way; many of them even help to keep us healthy. For our skin, these microorganisms have beneficial properties because the natural skin flora can only be formed through these microorganisms.

10 Things About: Prepping your Skin for Summer

Written by Kimberly Czelusniak on January 8th, 2019.      0 comments

Main Image 233x207 As the days start to get longer, you may notice that your client’s skin is in need of a spring tune up.

Winter can wreak havoc on our skin. Dehydration and dead skin buildup can leave skin looking dull and lackluster. After being cooped up indoors for the majority of the winter months, it is time to ready your client’s skin to come out of hibernation. Before taking any beautifying steps to buff up your client’s appearance for their spring debut, make sure that their skin is healthy.

Is Hair Care Affecting Your Skin Health?

Written by Florence Barrett-Hill on August 30th, 2018.      0 comments

Hair-skin-health 233x207 It’s Ironic that many people spend a lot of time and money on skin care products for their sensitive, reactive skin,

but don’t consider that same amount of money, care, and thought be given to the shampoo, conditioner, and colour frequently applied to their scalp and hair.  As professional skin treatment therapists, could we be doing more to educate them? FBH. The core principle of treating sensitive, reactive skins (such as eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis) is by Corneotherapy techniques and skin care products. We use these products because the ingredients are more physiologically compatible with the skin.

spa-treatment-header-men 233x207 Because men need a little pampering too...

If there’s one thing the recent uptick in male beauty treatments has given us, it’s a solid appreciation of portmanteau. From the dermal depths of ‘Brotox’ up to the smooth layers of ‘manscaping’, bolting a macho prefix onto the names of those decidedly ladies-only treatments makes them very manly indeed. And thank the grooming gods; getting caught with your hands in your partner’s wash bag was becoming a real risk, right guys?

rosacea-skin-treatments 233x207 What's the difference?

When I was at the doctor a few weeks back (getting antibiotics for my acute bronchitis), she commented on whether I'd like a script for my rosacea. Ahhhh, excuse me lady... Firstly, I don't have rosacea and secondly, I don't do pharmaceuticals – unless it's a dire life or death situation. But lately, after exercise I've been noticing a reddish, blushed tinge to my face. It used to disappear after a few minutes but now it's hanging around for several hours

Mukti 233x207 We know exercise is important for longevity, health and weight control.

But have you ever considered the potential benefits that moving your body provides for the skin? I'm not talking about facial exercises or facial yoga that’s supposed to lift the skin by building the subcutaneous muscles. I’m talking about anything you do that gets your blood pumping.
