week I tried a juice cleanse for the first time.I am a fairly healthy person
who eats a balanced diet, my weight is in the healthy weight range and I do regular exercise.
However I have struggled to shed a few kilos that crept on over summer and the
usual calorie tracking / increased exercise has not shifted it. I felt like a juice
cleanse might just be the clean slate my body needed to start responding like
it used to.
Not really knowing where to start, I opted to go with a local company Pure Glow
Cleanse, who offer a 3 day slow pressed juices, option.

Good nutrition is vital to maintaining your natural beauty. Here is an outline of foods that are great for your skin and rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals:
Capsicum, Kale, orange, kiwifruit, strawberries, lemons, broccoli and chili are rich in Vitamin C. This vitamin assists collagen production and protects cells from free radical damage.
Sunflower seeds, almonds, wheat germ and avocado are rich in Vitamin E helping to protect cell membranes and guard against UV radiation damage.
Travelling by air can be taxing on your skin, eyes and lips.
But, with the right beauty routine, you can look as glamorous as the world's most stylish cabin crews. Here are some tips to care for your skin in transit.
Even though fresh air is constantly added to recycled air through very fine filters, to remove dust and bacteria, the air in the aircraft cabin has low humidity levels. This can cause mild drying of the skin.
One of the best suggestions is travelling make-up free, especially on long-haul flights.
Drinking Water Is Great For Your Skin!
I'm sure you hear it all the time but it’s so true and it makes a big difference to the appearance of your skin.
Your skin is your bodies largest organ and it primarily depends on water to keep it hydrated from the inside out. Water provides endless benefits to the body as well as your skin and here are a few just to refresh:
Assists skin health and elasticity
Assists with reducing and preventing cellulite
Hydrates dry and thirsty skin
Simple tips for spring-cleaning your skin!
1. Gently cleanse the skin thoroughly. Repairing winter havoc and
preparing the skin for warmer weather and longer days. Use a preservative and fragrance
free, mildly acidic and hydrating cleanser. We recommend Aesthetic Beauty Foaming Cleanser.
2. Shed your old skin. Use a quality exfoliant 2-3 times a week. Exfoliating will help
loosen dead skin cells and reveal a brighter complexion. Aesthetic Beauty Facial Exfoliant is the perfect product to eliminate all dead skin cells and gives your skin a natural glow!
Have you ever noticed small white bumps under your eyes that look like whiteheads or ‘chicken skin’?
Chances are they are actually milia. Milia have a thin layer of skin that grows over them, making them hard like a cyst and difficult to remove unlike a whitehead that would eventually exfoliate away.
Milia are usually the result of using skin care products around the eye area that are too rich for the thinner skin and tinier pores. Hence it is important to choose the right formulation specific to your skin type and eye area.
